Minimalist decor ideas for your apartment

 

Clutter can compromise the look and feel of your home. If you like clean lines and an open aesthetic, modern and minimalist interior design might be the right style for you.

 

To pull off a minimalist aesthetic, you’ll need to ensure your decor involves a small amount of furniture, decor and detail. Pay special attention to shape, colour and texture when cultivating a minimalist look and feel. Modern minimalism allows for maximum personal expression without needing to draw too much attention to any one piece. Here are some minimalist decor ideas for your apartment, and where to shop in Toronto to pull off the look.

 

Urban Outfitters Home

Urban Outfitters has always been where the cool kids shop — and as those cool kids grew up, they started to need some cool stuff to display in their beautiful homes. Urban Outfitters responded by launching a line of home furnishings for small-space living. Visit them to pick a few pieces. Everything in the line is designed to simplify and not overwhelm. An oversized Hub Mirror or a new rug can really tie a room together, and help you pull of your minimalist look with less. There are a couple of locations nearby — their downtown store at 235 Yonge Street and their west-side store at 481 Queen Street West.

 

H&M Home

H&M is a well-established source for affordable, trendy fashion. They’ve extended that same sensibility to their home decor line. If you want to save money on sleek and stylish home furnishings and achieve a modern minimalist decor aesthetic, you need to check out H&M Home.

 

The right accessories can really change the look and feel of a room. You can find bathroom decor pieces from $6.99! Less is more, so if you’re looking to get rid of some clutter, be sure to replace it with only what you need and love. This understated throw rug can create a whole new feel in a room. You can complete the transformation for just a few bucks by adding a brass candlestick, a cozy crinkled cotton throw and a few new pillow covers. If “less is more” is your motto, you’ll love that this store gives you more for less.

 

CB2

CB2 is Crate and Barrel’s more modern and affordable sister store. The design aesthetic here leans toward the minimalist and mid-century modern look. The eclectic sensibility of the shop means that practically everything in the store goes with everything else in the store. This can either make shopping simple, or incredibly complex. You may be overwhelmed with options. There is a lot of opportunity to mix and match pieces to create your perfect style. From Parisian-inspired sofas to minimalist dining tables, they’ve got everything a trend-savvy Toronto minimalist could hope for.

 

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, their associates will help you locate it and/or order it in from their full online collection which includes contemporary furniture, modern lighting, sculpture and much more. If you still don’t see what you’re looking for, you can work directly with their team to custom-design sofas, chairs and headboards to fit your design dreams and dimensions to a T.

 

Downtown Toronto dwellers can consider themselves fortunate as the 651 Queen Street West location of CB2 is the only one in Ontario. Pay them a visit Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm, and Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm.

 

West Elm

West Elm is a Brooklyn-based branch of Williams-Sonoma Inc. It was established in 2002 in order to focus on affordable modern design.

Shop their store in Liberty Village (109 Atlantic Avenue) Monday to Friday from 10 am to 9 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm, and Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm.

 

IKEA

IKEA may not have invented modern Scandinavian minimalism, but they certainly played a big part in popularizing it and making it affordable and accessible. From simple and clean looking chrome accessories for kitchens and bathrooms,  to living room furniture and more. If you can use an allen-key, you can enjoy and assemble their affordable modern furniture.

 

There are two Toronto area locations to serve you. You’ve probably visited them at 1475 The Queensway in Etobicoke, open Monday to Friday from 10 am to 9 pm, Saturday 9 am to 9 pm, and Sunday 10 am to 6 pm. You might not be familiar with their location at 15 Provost Drive in North York, open 10 am to 9 pm on weekdays, 9 am to 9 pm on Saturday, and 10 am to 7 pm on Sunday. Take advantage of the free IKEA Shuttle Bus that serves Downtown Toronto and Kipling Station. It takes people to the Etobicoke location every weekend.

 

Stroll through their vast show rooms to plant clever design ideas in your head. If you can’t carry home what you’ve purchased, delivery and even assembly options are available.

 

We hope this article helps you do less with more and cultivate your own understated style.

Kinka Izakaya (398 Church Street) is a great local spot to enjoy excellent and authentic Japanese cuisine. An izakaya is a Japanese pub. The word Izakaya translates literally as “stay sake shop”. It’s a place to sit, settle in, sip sake, share some food and share some time. Transport yourself while you treat yourself to amazing and interesting small shareable plates. It’s the perfect way to connect with friends over fantastic cuisine and a few drinks.

 

The moment you step inside Kinka Izakaya you’ll feel as though you’re dining in Japan. Why limit yourself to simply sushi? Kinka offers an authentic dining experience that goes well beyond it. Executive Chef Ippei Iwata has created a blend of modern and traditional dishes to share.  The restaurant is open daily for lunch from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, for dinner Sunday to Thursday from 5 pm to 12 am, and Friday and Saturday nights from 5 pm to 1 am.

Make your tasty Thai dreams comes true at Thai Fantasy (578 Yonge Street). This simple storefront restaurant may not catch your eye if you’re not looking for it. The atmosphere is simple and comfortable. They’re not trying to impress you with the ambiance because the food is impressive enough to speak for itself. You can dine-in, takeout, or order online for delivery. From soups and salads to curries spiced to suit any taste, you’ll leave satisfied. We recommend the Vegetable Spring Rolls ($5.45), Mango Salad ($9.95, made with fresh cilantro, fresh lime juice, palm sugar, peanut, bell pepper and red onion), and House Pad Thai (starting at $9.95 for the veggie). Everything is made according to traditional Thai recipes.

A night to remember in the Village

 

We all need to find the right work-life balance. When your work is done and your time is free, how do you choose to spend it? A quiet night at home can be perfect, but sometimes you feel like getting out and discovering all the entertainment that’s available to you. It’s time to have some fun. When you live at Village Green, you don’t have to travel very far to find it. Here are our tips for a night to remember in the Village.

 

An Evening of Theatre

Your life might have enough drama as it is, but spending an evening engaged in someone else’s drama is a great way to take a break from your own, and a great reminder that we are all human, and we’re all in this together. You’ve got some excellent options for wildly different theatrical experiences near Village Green. The CAA Theatre (formerly the Panasonic) at 651 Yonge Street offers world class theatre within walking distance. This fall you can catch the nostalgic 90’s-style fun of Friends! The Musical Parody. Revisit your favourite group of 20-something friends as they navigate their lives from the comfort of Central Perk. It’s a fast-paced musical journey through 10 years of your favourite moments.

 

Buddies in Bad Times

If you’re in a more edgy, extreme or experimental mood, Buddies in Bad Times is always a great alternative to the mainstream theatre scene. This years marks the theatre’s 40th Anniversary and they are celebrating all year long! Expect special events, performances, dialogues and parties!

 

You can revisit the past with a one-night-only reading of their greatest hits from the past 40 years, or project into the future with community conversations about what’s next for the largest and longest-running queer theatre in the world.

 

All events take place in the Cabaret with a Pay-What-You-Can at the door policy.

 

Royal Conservatory of Music

Another neighbourhood institution is celebrating an anniversary this year. The Royal Conservatory of Music (273 Bloor St West) is celebrating their 10th season at Koerner Hall. The Hall is quite simply one of the most beautiful and acoustically impeccable concert halls in the world. The layered, almost liquid-like wooden ceiling canopy envelopes the space and allows for a dramatic, yet intimate, connection between audience and artists. Even before you enter the Hall, the dramatic glass lobbies welcome you, provide a view of the city that is second to none, and let you know you’ve arrived somewhere special. From jazz to classical, roots to world music, the Hall has heard it all. Get tickets for an upcoming performance.

 

Phoenix Concert Theatre

 

If you’re more in the mood for a modern musical performance, you’re lucky enough to live near one of the best concert venues in the city — Phoenix Concert Theatre (410 Sherbourne Street). It’s one of the oldest dance halls in Toronto and attracts an eclectic crowd — young and old, straight and gay, non-binary and beyond. It all depends on what’s on.

 

Riddle Room

Riddle Room (579 Yonge Street, 2nd Floor) makes it easy to escape from your everyday routine. If you’ve never experienced an escape room before, Riddle Room is a great place to begin. It’s run by game nerds who know what they’re doing. Bring a few friends and choose a themed room. You’ll have to work together, against the clock, to solve puzzles and solve problems in order to escape before your time is up! There are currently 3 themed rooms to choose from, with new rooms joining the rotation regularly. Luci’s Room is geared toward horror fans seeking some thrills and chills as you are “locked” within a child’s haunted bedroom. Missing Anatomy lets you show off your Sherlock Holmes skills to solve a murder mystery. Castle leaves you trapped within a Medieval castle, where you’ll have to learn how to escape evil.

 

Even if escape rooms aren’t your thing, Riddle Room may become you new favourite neighbourhood haunt. Grab a pal or bring a date and have some fun playing games in their games cafe. Nothing beats playing board games and video games with a delicious coffee and dessert!

 

Pegasus Bar

 

Let Pegasus on Church (489B Church Street) take your night to new heights. Their colourful martinis, billiard tables and pinball machine are just the beginning. This glorious bar features different fun events every night of the week! Weekends (that start on Thursday night!) are all about the VJ’s, so get ready to dance the night away. Wednesday is trivia night, Tuesday is Ghetto Glam Bingo, and Monday is stand up comedy.

 

Mattamy Athletic Centre

This one is for sports fans! If you love sports, why not watch players who play for the love of the game? The Mattamy Athletic Centre (the former Maple Leaf Gardens) is still a special place to catch your favourite sports games live. It’s home ice to the Ryerson Rams men’s and women’s hockey teams, as well as home court for The Rams basketball team. Use your home court advantage and catch these college athletes while it’s still all about the game for them.

 

Don’t wait, take full advantage of the outstanding entertainment and activities that your neighbourhood has to offer. We hope our recommendations help you enjoy a night to remember in the Village.

Steph and Bruce are the partners behind Roselle. They met while working in Paris and have both worked in Michelin-starred kitchens across Europe and Asia.

Admire the amazingness of autumn in Toronto

 

Autumn in Toronto is an amazing time of year. The fall foliage can be a bit fleeting, but fortunately, you don’t have to travel far to experience it.

Moore Park Ravine / Evergreen Brickworks

The Moore Park Ravine (205 Moore Ave.) is easily accessible on foot from Davisville Village. You can enter the trail just south of Mount Pleasant Cemetery and follow the tree-lined path along the river, through the ravine, down to the Evergreen Brick Works. The grounds behind the Brickworks are complete with trails and ponds. They are also a great place to admire the fall foliage, especially if you hike up the hill on the east side by the train tracks and look out over it all. If you are too tuckered out to hike it back on foot, there is a TTC bus that stops at the Brickworks and takes you back to Davisville station.

 

The Don Valley

 

There may be no better place to take in the brilliance of the fall colours than the Don Valley. You can connect to the Don Valley trail system from the Brick Works at Crothers Woods and follow the paved trail along the Don Valley River. If you’re lucky, you can catch a glimpse of the spawning salmon as they swim upstream and attempt to leap over the small waterfalls along the way. You can follow this treed path all the way to Taylor Creek, Edwards Gardens, and Sunnybrook Park. The perfect time for fall colours and salmon spotting is right around Thanksgiving. If you never explored this part of your city, you won’t believe your eyes. You can learn more about this trail in our recent article.

 

Riverdale Park

Riverdale Park West begins just east of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood near Village Green. You can stop by Riverdale Farm to visit the animals and feel like you’ve escaped to the countryside. Take the pedestrian bridge over the DVP and you’ll find yourself in Riverdale Park East. This bridge will also connect you to the Lower Don Valley Trail. Walk up the hill on the park’s eastern side and you’ll get a breathtaking view of not only the fall colours but one of the best views of the Toronto skyline in the city. Plan to be there for sunset for the most Instagram-worthy photo ops.

The Glen Stewart Ravine is located in the Upper Beaches neighbourhood. It runs just north of Queen Street East up to just south of Kingston Road. This often-overlooked nature trail is one of the best places in the city to surround yourself with the brilliant colours of autumn.

 

Scarborough Bluffs

The East End of Toronto is home to some world-class green space. During the fall, this green space is reborn in gold, red, yellow and orange. The Scarborough Bluffs are beautiful no matter what season you visit, but when fall rolls around, it can feel downright magical. The brilliant colours of the leaves are complemented perfectly by the deep blue water of Lake Ontario, and it’s all framed by the majestic bluffs rising toward the light blue sky. Head to the base of Brimley Road South to take it in from the beach, or hike the upper trails that dot the top of the bluffs, all the way to Guild Park and Gardens.

 

Rouge Park

Rouge Park is never more aptly named than in the fall as the leaves change to brilliant reds. Pack a lunch, bring some water and hike the many trails that literally lead you over the meadow and through the woods, as well as along the river. It’s only a short drive from downtown or midtown but feels very rural. You won’t believe you’re still in the same city!

 

Humber Valley

 

The West End of the city is no slouch in the natural beauty department. There are many beautiful parks along the banks of the Humber River, from the mouth of the river where it feeds into Lake Ontario all the way past Steeles Avenue. Some standouts to check out are Lambton Park, Humber Marshes and Summerlea Park. Etienne Brule Park is a great place to walk along the river, take in the colours and catch the salmon leaping over the falls around Thanksgiving. You’ll be grateful you did. Take the Bloor subway out to Old Mill and walk down the hill to the north.

 

High Park

High Park is another perfect fall foliage hotspot that also has its own subway stop. Plan a fall picnic, hike the trails, or simply take it easy and sit by Grenadier Pond as you let an unbelievably beautiful autumn day pass by.

 

Toronto Islands

 

Boarding the ferry at Jack Layton terminal, at the base of Bay Street, is breathtaking in the fall. Just across the water lies a whole other world. The Toronto Islands are never more beautiful than in the fall, and the summer crowds have thinned out considerably. If you plan an escape on a weekday, you may feel like you’ve got the place to yourself! Coming back is also lovely, as you’re treated to the best city views imaginable.

 

Tommy Thompson Park

 

Located at the southern tip of Leslie Street is the Leslie Street Spit and the gateway to Tommy Thompson Park. Talk a long walk, or a leisurely bike ride, along the wide pathway. In addition to the colourful leaves, you’ll pass by the marshlands and the bird sanctuary before you loop around the lighthouse and head back the way you came. You’ll be surprised by all the beauty you missed on the first pass, like the brilliant blue lake, yacht club and stunning city views.

 

Don’t let your autumn fall flat. Get out there and explore all the beauty your city has to offer!

The plush leather booths, dark wood panelled walls, and modern art from Warhol, Dali and more will have you feeling like new-world royalty. You can get an 8oz Canadian Prime Centre Cut Filet, aged 28 days, for $65 a la carte. But if you’re here, it’s a special occasion, or you’re fabulously well-to-do, so why not go all out?

Discover Crothers Woods

 

Living in the heart of Midtown at Davisville Village has some huge advantages. Whatever you need is within easy reach. Whether you are looking for shopping, dining, nightlife, or to reconnect with nature, this fabulous neighbourhood has it all. One of the best parts of the area is Crothers Woods.

Crothers Woods is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. This 52-hectare parcel of land sits along the banks of the Don River and is loaded with mature woods consisting of beech, maple and oak trees, as well as new growth and some rare undergrowth plants. There are also meadows and approximately 9 kilometres of metre-wide dirt trails.

 

To the south, it is bordered by Pottery Road, and to the northeast by Millwood Bridge. It is easily accessible by TTC. Take the number 28 bus Bayview South toward Brick Works. Transfer at Moore Avenue to the 88A South to Millwood Road and Redway Road South. From there it is a short, two-minute walk to access the trail from the Thomas Hauser Memorial Trailhead. The access point to this 2.4-kilometre trail is tucked away behind the Loblaws at 11 Redway Road. You’ll find a trail map posted there and you can view the map online in the Crothers Woods Trails brochure (PDF). There is also ample parking.

Once you hit the trail and begin the winding descent down the hill, it’s easy to feel like you’ve entered a different world. From the bunnies that can be seen feeding on the vegetation, or if you’re really lucky you can catch a glimpse of a white-tailed deer bounding into the bush. During the fall, right around Thanksgiving, you can even head down to the river and see salmon swimming upstream, leaping the man-made waterfalls to make it to their spawning grounds. It’s kind of magical. If you follow the trail north from the trailhead, you can catch some great views of the city.

here are three access points for Crothers Woods, each of them with parking. One parking lot entrance can be found at the Don Valley Mountain Bike Trailhead on Pottery Road, across from Todmorden Mills. This path heads north, parallel to Bayview Avenue to the northern end of the park where you will find another access point from Bayview Avenue. This area is also known as Sun Valley, the former home of the Sun Brick Company which shut down back in the 1930s. It was owned by the Taylor family, who also owned Todmorden Mills and the Don Valley Brick Works. The family built their homestead here. A well-preserved re-creation of it can be found on site at Todmorden Mills. When the clay for brick making was exhausted, the area was transformed into a landfill pit that was capped with clean fill in the 1980s.

 

It is difficult to believe that this designated Environmentally Significant Area was an industrial landfill only a few decades ago. Since then it has become a hotspot for mountain bikers, nature lovers and urban hikers. Be sure to watch and listen for the cyclists as you share the trails with them. It is in large part thanks to these cyclists that Crothers Woods is so well-maintained today. Since 2005, organized groups of cyclists, volunteers and enthusiasts have lobbied and pushed for the city to maintain the area. Crothers Woods also easily connects to the newly renovated and revamped Lower Don Trail. If you want to explore these and other trails near you, check out our recent article.

As you continue along the trail by the Lower Don River, you’ll come to the abandoned CN Rail Bridge that runs parallel with the old abandoned Canadian Pacific Railway corridor which first began operations back in 1891.  There’s also an active set of Canadian National Railway tracks if you want to do some trainspotting.

Crothers Woods is an urban nature lover’s paradise, rich in history and wildlife. It can be easy to overlook such hidden gems. They sit patiently, just waiting to be discovered right in your own backyard. Once you do discover them, you may wonder how you ever got along without them.

The late photographer Raghubir Singh was one of the most celebrated photographers India has ever produced. His style offered an insight into the intersection of the traditional East and the modern West, the places and people that reveal a dramatic palette through his distinctive lens. Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs tracks his career from the late 1960’s all the way up to his unpublished projects, and his death in 1999.

 

#MeToo & the Arts

 

#MeToo & the Arts examines how museums are struggling to engage with the issues raised by the #MeToo movement — when an artist’s work or their personal behaviour becomes problematic. Through a series of displays and public engagements, a larger conversation is encouraged about how museums, the public and individuals are engaging with art in this new context. The display is free and open to the public. It’s located in the Thorsell Spirit House, by the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal entrance. It is on now, until October 21st.

 

GALLERIES


Gallery of Chinese Architecture

China is an ancient culture and its architectural legacy dates back just as far. This gallery features artifacts dating between approximately 300 BC to AD 1900. Learn about the relationship between Yin-houses (architecture for the dead) and Yang-houses (architecture for the living) and how that intertwines with the concept of feng shui or geomancy.

 

Patrick and Barbara Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity

 

The Patrick and Barbara Keenan Family Gallery of Hands-on Biodiversity, located on Level 2, is an opportunity for people of all ages to engage in the complex relationship that connects all living things. This interactive environment offers hands-on displays and specimens, along with trained facilitators to answer any questions and offer further insight.

In The Fertile Crescent, where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers meet, ancient civilizations thrived and made enormous advances in areas including medicine, law, mathematics, writing and religion.
