Canadian Tire Canvas Spring/Summer 2017 Preview

Now that it's starting to warm up here (and the six inches of snow that fell a couple of weeks ago has melted), we're all thinking about the backyard and patio.  I was recently invited to a Canadian Tire event, showcasing their 2017 CANVAS Spring/Summer collection #mycanvasstyle.  The venue was set up using all their CANVAS merchandise including interior and exterior items. I must say, I was very impressed with the outdoor lanterns & chandeliers...and here's a bonus, some are even solar!  
Here's a little peek at what I saw.

See what I mean by their outdoor lighting?  The  Cassara Lantern is one of my favourite.  As a gardener, I'm always looking for new planters and sometimes it's hard to find great style at an affordable price. I'm loving this & this...from CANVAS.

How cute are these inflatables for the pool?

The Hippest Co-op Office Space in Toronto

For over a year now my husband has been officing out of the coolest creative space in Toronto... East Room.  This place is an eclectic industrial mix that is done to perfection!  When you combine black steel doors & windows, exposed beams & pipes, 20 foot ceilings and white brick walls & then you add a mix of mid century, modern & industrial antiques... you get an absolutely spectacular space!    
(I want to move in....really, I could live here!)

This old factory was stripped back to its bones by the owners--brothers Derreck Martin (the owner of 507 Antiques) & Sam Martin, to make it feel like New York. It is set up more like a lounge in the common spaces and then as you venture down the hallways, there are offices & boardrooms...well equipped to accommodate all your office needs.   If you are a creative in Toronto & looking for a space to office out of without the huge overhead, I strongly recommend this place.
