Lush Bedding Makeover with Maison Tess

I’ve been a fan of fine linens for some time, but it’s only really been since we bought our home that I’ve even begun to think about swapping out crisp whites, soft off-whites and cream-coloured tones for something much warmer and richer.

Magnificent Martinique

When I think back on my trip to Martinique (a trip I won thanks to: Martinique Gourmande, Tourisme Martinique and Air Canada), I remember the sun, the sand and the radiant smiles of the Martiniquans.

How to wallpaper like it’s 1920

The powder room in our house was pretty boring when we purchased our home. It looked unfinished. There were subway tiles along one wall behind the sink and vanity, but aside from those and the chandelier sconces, there wasn’t much thought put into making this room welcoming. Since it’s the bathroom for our guests, I ...

Sugar Shacks in the City

At Le Richmond's annual maple brunch with Serge the llama. For me, March rhymes with maple, as it is the month where I get all my maple cravings satisfied. Let’s just say that March is the most maple-saturated month of the year!  For the past three years, I’ve made a point of going to Le Richmond for the ...
