MOTO x NDC

Toronto x Montreal

Last night we were invited to catch a 'sneak peak' for the the TODO Toronto-Montreal exhibition at Domison.

Domison wanted to offset the highly commercialized IDS (interior design show) and modestly celebrate local designs without price tags or labels. Apart from appreciating the beauty of each product and debating on how each one was made, we spent the night playing musical couch, test sitting on all the couches designed by Domison; Admiring the hand printed silk screened posters that were plastered over the walls, and drooling over the store window display made entirely with mops (both posters and window display designed by Paprika)

Here are some of the photos from the night.

Sharing Some Local Love

Sometimes if you manage to stay away from the TTC long enough, you get reminded of why you fell in love with Toronto in the first place. Here are two recent examples that re-kindled my love for TO, despite the grey and cold of January:

First: This crazy stop-motion video by Type Books has been making the local blog rounds in the last day or so and is absolutely amazing. You must watch it now!



Second: Remember stickers?! These Bloor & Bathurst neighbourhood stickers made by B Streets (condos) remind me how much I love my area. If only they were scratch-n-sniff...
