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.

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.

My furnishing style would best be called 'eclectic', as I tend to gravitate to pieces that are unique, have character and originate from anywhere across the globe. One of my favourite Toronto retailers is Greentea Design located on Carlaw Avenue in Leslieville. They have an amazing showroom of Asian furnishings that range from antique… Read Full Entry
