Finding my design inspiration at Toronto’s furniture store: Decorium

The other day I stumbled upon a little-hidden gem, a furniture store called Decorium,  in the heart of Summerhill-my hood.  I love this area of Toronto. I have the iconic and historic Summerhill LCBO that was once a train station, I have the best little grocery shops where I can find the finest ingredients and quality for cooking.  Oliffe is one of my favourite butchers…

Making gravlax at home. It’s easier than you think!
