Crate and Barrel had a pre party last night for the Grand Opening of their Square One location. It's the first free standing building for us Canadians and is designed true to Crate and Barrel'sStandards. The place was packed with people, the line ups were huge. A portion of the proceeds from last night and the next few days are going towards the Credit valley Hospital.
Naturally Fall colours are in full season, with wonderful warm tones, rusty reds and plums and organic woods. But I absolutely loved the display of blue and green hand blown glass, the tear shaped Samara Vase is a fave. My BFF Jenna, loved this collection of plaid dishes, and I have to agree they are very festive.. Christmas was in full swing too, with warm whites, silver and gold..

It's always great to bump into bloggers. I spotted Christine (aka GlamaMama) from Decor by Christine, and Vanessa of Decor Happy. We had a great chat with Cathy Miller (aka Queen Bee of Media at C and B Canada) about the store, and all the exciting things happening here. CB2 is on it's way, arriving in the Spring, with modern and edgy affordable pieces. That will certainly be a fun stop in the city.
I'm Vitania. A furniture maker, design aficionado, and general lover of all things beautiful and simple. Here is where I share my thoughts and inspiration. A well appointed room, the perfect winter coat, a painting I can't stop thinking about, a book I should have read years ago.
