On The Countdown To Spring


There is something absolutely energizing - almost out-of-body transcendental - that occurs when the snowbanks retreat and we begin to see promise of greenery again. Spring means being outside and taking the fresh air in, rather than bundling, huddling and then rushing to your destination to avoid getting nipped by the cold.

I Love a Built-In Bed

If you've been following our blog, you know I've been embarking on a remodel of my 1960s swell dwell on Tennis Crescent in Riverdale. Today, I air my disdain for rooms which have split personalities. Yes, I despise walking into that ubiquitous second bedroom (if you're fortunate to have one) that double-duties as both a home office and a guest bedroom. These rooms tend to appear confused over their identity and - for me at...
