Here Comes The Sun With Shop.ca

The sun is finally shining and like my toes ache for sandals, so am I itching to get outside for some long awaited patio and backyard time.Which is perfect timing, because Shop.ca recently held a “create your own backyard oasis” event that gave me plenty of ideas for creating my perfect outdoor space.

From May to September – I live outdoors. Really! I would bring my bedroom outside if I could. But because I can’t, I settle for  bringing my living room outside instead. Think of it like designing your interior space, much of the same elements still apply – comfortable seating, a great dining table to host friends, fabulous lighting…

Here are a few fab finds and some must-have essentials from the preview and site to get you thinking about outdoor living and entertaining. What’s on your shopping checklist?

I'm Lisa, a real born and bred Torontonian in every sense of the word. I'm a PR practitioner by day with a fabulous client list, at a very cool boutique firm in the core with a view of the city that can make anyone want to move here. I have a mild to moderate hat obsession, and you’ll usually find me searching the city for the next big chef, and rarely without a fashion or décor magazine in my purse. Before PR, I was a travel writer/editor/photographer, and spent most of my time travelling the world and bringing my stories back here. The rest of the time I spent indulging in the city's untapped culinary scene as Post City Magazine's main restaurant photographer. But, no matter where I am in the world, nothing beats coming home. That's why I've spent the last few years planting my roots here, moving from Toronto’s uber-chic west side to the heart of Greek Town in a modern Victorian semi (a.ka. my lifelong décor project), with my husband and super-stylish son. Yes, I'm one of those moms, the one who won't give up her sense of style post-baby bump; and why should I?! I aspire to have my cake and eat it too - I am Italian after all. And, now why my 2-year-old in tow, I can bring him along for the ride.
