Rub-A-Dub-Tub

May 19th, 2010 | House And HomeLifestyleRejuvenating The Button FactoryCollege Street/Little Italy

Whenever guests see my clawfoot tub perched at the edge of a 26 foot high skylit atrium in my second floor bedroom, they almost always ask "Does your bathtub work?". The question always makes me laugh. People are more likely to accept my explanation that's it's an 'art installation' rather than… Read Full Entry

Lite Brite

May 17th, 2010 | House And HomeStyle Enhancement Staging

First, not that you asked, but one thing that drives me bonkers are alliterations that also spell the words incorrectly. I consider this awkward attempt to be 'oh so clever' infuriating. In fact, it sends me into a rage. Maybe it's because I lost the school spelling bee in grade five. Regardless, you're guaranteed to… Read Full Entry

When It Rains, It Pours

May 12th, 2010 | Real Estate

Sometimes I'm certain there's a correlation between the weather and real estate activity. One week we're sunning ourselves being languid, the next a blustery storm is lashing on our heels and the phone is ringing off the hook. Buyers are buying, while sellers prepare to catch the tail end of… Read Full Entry

Spring Blooms New Listings

May 5th, 2010 | Real Estate

I am simply beaming for joy this week now that Spring has fully blossomed! Yesterday, after  photographing my new listing at Tip Top Lofts (see the Current Promotions Section for the listing 'Modern Bespoke At Tip Top Lofts' offered for $349,000 for something truly special!), I took a stroll along the marina and parks lining Lake Ontario. Nature's symphony… Read Full Entry

My Room With A Peek-A-Boo View

May 3rd, 2010 | Real EstateRejuvenating The Button FactoryCollege Street/Little Italy

I have a love/hate relationship with the CN Tower. On the one hand, I marvel at how it's reigned supreme as the world's tallest structure since 1976 until this year, when Dubai's Burj Khalifa took the crown. On the other hand I despise how there's almost no escaping its presence. No… Read Full Entry

Coffee, Tea Or Me Downtown West

April 28th, 2010 | City LivingLifestyleQueen West

In the 1970's, when you were out and about and craving a coffee, it usually accompanied a glazed donut from Tim Hortons. For the majority of Canadians you purchased this before, or after, taking your kids to hockey practice or figure skating. 

Then came The Second Cup and… Read Full Entry

Soft Feelings For Hardware

April 26th, 2010 | City LivingRejuvenating The Button FactoryLeslieville/Riverside

As part of my on-going saga to reorganize my home, I decided to relocate my stereo system. Situated beside the front door of my loft squeezed into a 60s teak buffet so the cabinet doors could never be closed, its cumbersome placement greeted guests the moment they arrived. Needless to say, it didn't provide a very inviting sense… Read Full Entry

Chaise For Days

April 23rd, 2010 | House And HomeRejuvenating The Button FactoryCollege Street/Little Italy

I've always loved my funky 60s chaise. It has such incredible support that when lying on it you feel like you're floating. In fact, if I were a psychologist I would have my patients lie on it while they revealed everything to me.

I originally bought the… Read Full Entry

You Reek, Ah!

April 19th, 2010 | House And HomeRejuvenating The Button Factory

One would think after twenty years of being involved in every facet of the real estate industry, from design and renovation, to sales and redevelopment, I would be able to manage the execution of it all. And for the most part I do. Unfortunately, over the past week as the… Read Full Entry
