Kitchen A GoGo

So it's been six months since I slipped into Makeover Madness and decided to upgrade my loft from boho to chic. Not that it was an instant decision. It started with a desire to finally unpack my cd collection and boxes of books that were gathering dust in… Read Full Entry

Fluke Sunday

July 19th, 2010 | Real Estate

When I was becoming a fresh-faced newly-minted realtor twenty years ago I was accepting, in perpetuity, a chosen career path which would entail my being available most every Sunday for the rest of my working life. After all, back in the day before the rise of the self-employed consultant and flex hours, most people… Read Full Entry

Sizzle And Spice

July 16th, 2010 | House And HomeRejuvenating The Button FactoryCollege Street/Little Italy

One of my favourite home improvements is the custom gas barbecue located on my sunbrella-covered cedar-decked dining pavilion that's wrapped in ivy-clad original factory windows.

I've always been a fan of Stylegarage, the purveyor of crisp clean-lined furnishings. Over the years I've come to depend on them for stainless steel mirrors and smart ambient lighting. They even did a custom stair railing for me...all items I'll post in future blogs.

The Heat Is On

June 25th, 2010 | Real Estate

Mix one part obsessed World Cup Soccer fans driving around town honking and waving flags from their cars, with one part traffic gridlock exacerbated by wrapping our financial core in concrete and barbed wire for the G20 summit, and then bake it under this week's hot humid weather system!
