STYLE… AS IT HAPPENS!
This morning I visited Marilyn Denis and Roger Ashby at 104.5 ChumFM for some lively gossip and style fun happening now. Here’s a quick rundown… in case you missed it! You can visit their website (linked above) and listen to the podcast in the 8:15-8:30 time spot.
WHEN SCIENCE MEETS DECORATING: Apparently, Baker-Miller Pink (also known as Drunk Tank Pink) is the only colour scientifically proven to calm nerves and suppress the appetite. With that in mind, reality star/model Kendall Jenner has reportedly used the colour to paint her living room wall… stay calm and slim for 2017!
THE RE-BIRTH OF A SUPERMODEL:
50-year old Cindy Crawford is back gracing the pages of magazines as the new face of Silestone by Cosentino, a quartz countertop company. The magazine print campaign launches this spring and the manufacturers are hoping that her super-model status will help make their countertops sexy in the eyes of consumers. Cindy also has a line of furniture with The Brick, in Canada…
ARE YOU TOO OLD FOR THE DECOR STORES YOU SHOP AT???
A recent study discovered the peak-age that consumers stop shopping at the following stores: Lowes: 54, Home Depot: 48, Restoration Hardware: 44, Crate & Barrel: 31, IKEA: 24. BTW: the age that most consumers are willing to give up their IKEA furnishings is 34. :)
GREAT DEALS ON BEDDING:
From mid-January to mid March most major retailers will be clearing bedding, duvets and pillows. Traditionally called The White Sales, expect savings of 30-75%. Its the perfect time to consider new bedding essentials for the cottage this summer…
BUY FOOD FOR UP TO 40% LESS:
Anyone who grocery shops downtown pays a premium! Penguin Pick-Up has started a program called ‘Walmart Grocery Pick-Up‘. You shop for groceries online and they deliver the order to one of about 10 pick-up locations in the downtown area. No more driving to the suburbs to save money on groceries. I’ve done comparisons and discovered and average of 25% savings.
THE 2017 INTERIOR DESIGN SHOW OPENS TOMORROW NIGHT:
The 18th annual Interior Design Show launches this Thursday evening with an opening night party. Tickets are $56 and proceeds will go to the GTA Habitat For Humanity. The opening party has become the place to be for design-ificinados and a great fundraiser! On Friday the IDS is open to design professionals only and then the show opens to the public for the Saturday and Sunday.
