Bring it On!

Mar 1 2011

Here’s something you probably didn’t know about me – I’m a ping pong junkie. Should I say that out loud? Well, maybe junkie is a bit strong, but you get the picture.

When I spotted this James Perse Limited edition ping pong table on Remodelista, I got all giddy. And it looks like I’m not alone, the table is sold out!

In honour of this favoured past-time, I also wanted to share some shots of The Book Club in London. This cultural hang-out of sorts is located in London’s east end. It’s a spot for talks, readings, live music…and yes, ping pong.




This is my kind of place. Thanks to Miss Moss for the introduction.

Lake Bound

Aug 27 2010

Summer might be almost over, but we’re sneaking in one last taste. We’re packing up the car and heading to the Laurentians. I couldn’t be more excited to do absolutely nothing. I’ll see you back on Sept 7th (or possibly a tad sooner).

Sun & Sand

Apr 2 2010

We are off for vacation! It looks like it’s going to be beautiful all around, so have a fabulous week. I’ll be back posting on the 12th.

I’ll leave you with a shot that makes me very happy…

Finn Style

Mar 12 2010

I’m learning to travel vicariously (or virtually) these days. Trips overseas are few and far between as of late, so I do what I can do get my fix. Online roaming has brought me to some unexpected spots. Despite my love for Scandinavian design, I have yet to make it to that part of the world (I’ve been awfully close, though). Copenhagen has been on my list for ages. I’d love to visit Stockholm. I admit, Helsinki was not really on my radar until recently.

When I do make a visit, I’ll be sure to visit these amazing looking locales.

Shown above, My o My is a “lifestyle” store offering fashion, design objects, jewelry, etc. They call themselves a “homebase for all kinds of creativity.” I love that. The store itself looks like a gallery and (from what I can tell) reminds me of one of my favourite spots in New York – Moss.

Lunch at the Sis Deli and Café would be lovely (Discovered via Designworklife)

Perhaps a stay at the Klaus K hotel would be in order

Ah, it would be nice. But, until then, I’ll continue to fuel my wanderlust by visiting Nestled In, a great interiors blog by two Finns.

I could also do some serious damage at the Finnish Design Shop. I’ll leave you with a couple of my favourite on-site items (don’t hold it against me that both were designed by Arne Jacobsen, a Dane!).
