(I may still make a few
small changes here.)I am getting into the mood for winter, even though it
has made for some scary driving in Toronto today. Snow
makes my neighbourhood look festive. The painting
today is of the house across the street where my friends
Sandra Pacitti and Davide Tonizzo used to live. Before
that my friend Nancy Da Silva lived there -- so the
house is evocative for me.
A cell phone shot of Davide Tonizzo and Sam standing with
Davide's curio cabinets in the Bühler display at the
Interior Design Show in Toronto last weekendDavide invited us to see his new line of furniture Midtown
at the Interior Design Show on the weekend, and we
were delighted to head on down. Sam, my son, acted
in both of the short videos Davide shot for the Midtown
line, so it was a treat for Sam to visit the Bühler display
at the show, and see the end product he had been part
of. Sam's friend and another neighbour, Claudia Puchiele
is also in the Midtown movie.
Steven reading the Midtown Collection Brochure, and
Bühler rep, Celeste Brunel stand by the
beautiful electric fireplace cabinet.
I loved Davide's cabinet designs and a gorgeous electric
fireplace, set in a wooden cabinet would be a warm
and welcome practical and beautiful addition to any
room -- especially right now.
(One of my small paintings is in one of the Midtown videos.)
I think I live squarely in Midtown.
Have an-enjoying-life-in-Midtown day.
