Pass The Sugar, Be-ach

August 23rd, 2010 | City LivingHouse And Home

When I was a kid, one of the very first inappropriate jokes I learned went like this: Pass the sugar, Sugar Pass the honey, Honey Pass the tea... Bag! Hysterical at the age of 9, worthy of an eye roll today, eh? I'm sure the title of my blog might be how… Read Full Entry

Stairway To Heaven

Ok, I'm sure you know well by now I'm a product of the 70s, so please forgive the 'Stairway To Heaven' reference on a stair railing blog. It simply can't be helped given 'Stairway To Heaven' is, without doubt, one of the greatest rock anthems ever created! Released by the English rock band Led Zeppelin in 1971, this breathtaking eight minute song… Read Full Entry

Wonderful Wallcovering

August 16th, 2010 | City LivingRejuvenating The Button Factory

For a good chunk of my adult life, those who subscribed to the purity of contemporary architecture and design considered wallpaper a bit of a decorating no-no. Or at least it seemed that way to me.

Late News At The ROM

August 12th, 2010 | City Living

On Wednesday I attended the Royal Ontario Museum's showcase exhibit - The Warrior Emperor and China's Terracotta Army - which runs until January 2, 2011. It was an amazing history lesson - well worth navigating the crowds - but what really tickled me pink was the fourth floor show organized by… Read Full Entry

Toronto’s Villa Discrete

August 7th, 2010 | House And HomeLifestyle

I can't say I was completely won over when that Michael Lee-Chin 'Crystal', by architect Daniel Libeskind, smashed into the venerable Royal Ontario Museum in 2007 and stuck. I think I would have liked it more had it actually been a crystal and not a bunch of galvalume with a few strips of glass that… Read Full Entry
