Once a year, the Toronto Exhibition open their doors to the young and adventurous. Attracting guests with popcorn, candy apples, silly games and exciting rides. My parents would take my brother and I to spend the whole day running around the fairgrounds, with big smiles from ear to ear. This yearly fair is only here for a few more days - hurry or you will have to wait until next year!

Masculine design is a favourite of mine. You can brighten up a handsome space with lots of windows and white walls. Keep it simple with clean lines, minimal textures and few colours. Today I begin the Masculine Monday series!

Figs are one of my favourite fruits! They go wonderfully on a platter of sliced meat and cheese for entertaining guests. You may also want to try them as a delicious appetizer on a salad or sliced baguette.

With the days slowly getting shorter and shorter, I can begin to feel the fall air. Stores have started to put out their new lines of cozy attire and the leaves up in cottage country are beginning to turn.

This Manhattan home is comfortable and glamorous at the same time. Jackie Astier has carried luxurious fabrics and warm woods throughout each space. Can you believe that her dining room took 10 coats of lacquer?!
