TORONTO / Nuit Social

28.11.14




So happy to welcome this new, cozy little charcuterie spot in the neighbourhood, Nuit Social.  Small yet always bustling with local Queen West hipsters, Nuit brings something fresh to the area with its globally sourced menu items ranging from Spain to Milan and to Peru.  Everything on the menu is designed to be shared, although its all so yummy you'll hardly want to.  The restaurant features a stunning stain-glass bar design by Joseph Aigner, who normally works on commissions for churches.  And aptly so - this place will undoubtedly soon become the mecca for all foodies and wine apprecionados.

Wedding season is just around the corner and we are inspired by nymphs and fairy tales.  Wreaths, floating chiffon, ruffles, tousled braids, and of course - lots and lots of flowers.  Here is what is inspiring us for Spring 2015.

MANHATTAN / artistic loft in Union Square

21.11.14




A pro skateboarder's art collection became the jumping-off point for designer Ryan Korban when embarking on this urban loft in Manhattan's Union Square.  Luxurious materialss, vintage furnishings, and a bold collection of street-chic art collection combine to create a wholly original space that is at once sophisticated and youthful.  But this is not just a home - it is also an artistic space where the homeowner can spray paint away to his heart's content.

CASA / Jenna Lyons sells my dream home

13.11.14







J CREW Creative Director, Jenna Lyons, has just sold my dream home for $4 Million.  I mean technically, it was hers.  She owned it, and decorated it, and lived it in.  But still, it is my dream home and she sold it.  Without asking me.  For $4 Million.  The only other thing that I know about this house (other than it being perfect) is that it is in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
