eat more fruit

Berry baskets are nothing new…BUT I love when I stumble upon new designs and shapes. You’ll often see the classics, like the two on the right in the image below – but rarely have I found full sided ceramic baskets. I was so happy to find this collection online. Read on to see where to buy. It’s a larger size (just under 6″ square) so it’s quite a practical size for storing food in your fridge or kitchen pantry.

we stopped by: umbra

Walking into the Umbra store located on John Street in downtown Toronto pretty much feels like you’re walking into a playground. Not only is the interior of that store gorgeous, but the products are all just so fun! The different colours and contemporary shapes draw your eye around the store and the next thing you know you’ve been in there for an hour. The design team and I stopped by the Umbra store for a tour and snapped a few pics of some of our favourite items. Read on to check out the rest of our highlights.

we stopped by: barrymore furniture

Ann Marie, Stacy and I were all pretty excited when we were invited to stop by the Barrymore Toronto showroom earlier this week. Not only did we get a lovely tour around the showroom, we also got a sneak peek at the workshop…where all the magic happens! Seeing how furniture comes together has always fascinated me. Here are some of my favourite behind-the-scene pics that show some of the key steps in Barrymore’s process. Read on to see more!

places to go, people to see: art shoppe

Time flies. Art Shoppe has been a staple in Toronto’s design landscape for 78 years. Steeped in history, the family owned business has a long list of clients, including the Toronto international airport and the Toronto telegram building. Good news, bad news: The historic Yonge and Eglinton location shut it’s doors a few months ago (not surprisingly, the site already has a condo project in the works). But the great news is that it’s found an arguably better home in the Castlefield design district and is settling in quite well. The new showroom retains the signature Canadian-made and European-imported Art Deco-inspired collection that its customers know and love. Situated among other great design shops, the new location makes for a great day trip destination – the in-store cafe, set to open in the spring, will be a great spot to lunch among stylish furnishings. Here are some snapshots of the iconic landmark address over the last seven or so decades.
