chevron vs herringbone floors

Although Chevron + Herringbone floors look similar, there really is a difference between them. The Chevron pattern runs flush to the next floor board where as Herringbone overlaps. Which one pattern is your favourite?

club monaco | yorkdale mall

Yorkdale mall in Toronto has been undergoing some heavy duty renovations over the past few years including an enormous extension. Club Monaco used to be in a tiny store with just women's apparel - now they have re-located to the new part of the mall. Every inch of this space has great detail. They have beautifully divided the store into exquisite sections - Italian Cashmere, Basics, Evening, Mens, etc. Shopping here is like stepping into a personal closet. Everything is perfectly in it's own place! 

Stunning honeycomb ceiling

Handsome selection of vintage prints

Perfect bar with a lovely selection of vintage mirrors in the background

masculine monday | tweed

This classic pattern is warm and stylish. With many new patterns in the tweed fabric today, this is a pattern men of all ages should be wearing! A tweed blazer/jacket is a staple to any wardrobe and if you are a little more outgoing, try a tweed pair of pants!

toronto interior design show party 2013

Last night I attended the Interior Design Show party with some friends. We were amazed at the great exhibits and the wonderful fellow designers. Events like this are perfect for running into people you haven't seen in awhile and is always a great opportunity to network and meet new people. Below are a few images of our evening.

Lianne, Brandon and myself playing with this giant table at the Benjamin Moore booth!
Too funny that we had a class earlier today on this with Mark-Anthony at Humber College!

No doubt IKEA had a spectacular booth again this year! Above is an industrial kitchen with an over-sized island, gigantic windows and ceiling filled with modern lighting fixtures.

This bathroom really was a show stopper. The vintage copper tub really took my breath away!

Lovely artistic painted wall of lumber in the spaces.

This vintage snowmobile at the Gus* booth was so much fun! 
With all of this snow lately, it would be a dream to drive around on one of these.

I absolutely can't get enough of these Tom Dixon Etch Web lights.
See them on the blog here

These pulled-pork wraps were delicious!

Discovered this great vintage lighting company called Eclectic Revival in Toronto.
They create these lighting fixtures from vintage pieces!

Always a pleasure catching up with Emmanuel
He just started a new jewellery line called Floro - congratulations!

Earth Inc always has an eco friendly booth with lots of greenery and wood.
This fire container was from the original Campbell's Soup factory!

I was able to have a few words with Mark McEwan from Top Chef Canada!

The after party at the Thompson hotel was lots of fun! 
Great DJ and delicious complimentary drinks - don't you just love this back wall?

ponies in sweaters

With mother nature giving us a few cold days, we need to bundle up our animals as well. Below are Shetland ponies named Fivia and Millhouse sporting the latest fashion trend in Scotland - button down Fair Isle jumpers! Aren't they just adorable?

glass-walled penthouse | upper east side

This modern penthouse in New York's Upper East Side has a spacious floor plan and breathtaking wrap around windows overlooking Central Park. Architect Steven Harris has reflected the 1940s style of Richard Neutra with clean long lines, grand windows and large overhangs. The family who lives here has over time turned two penthouse suites next to each other and a 2-bedroom on the floor below into one grand home.
