I get LOADS of product pitches in my email, most of which I ignore because frankly, I don't want to encourage more of them. But yesterday there were a couple of cool product items I thought I'd pass along. I think the stained glass wall decals from Blik are awesome, such a good idea. I'm not crazy about the video game subject matter (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker) but I still they're pretty great; available to order online. Click through to see the amazing Pivot power strip.

There were some great moments — pieces I loved, spaces that sang -- but when all was said and done there just wasn't enough WOW on the floor. Riffing on the theme of How Do You Work? only BlackLab Architects really delivered with a simple but magnificently effective backdrop wall made of coloured pencil crayons. It was the strongest moment in the entire show.

While it's not exactly decorating, I'm happy to give a plug to the Pyrex Collective's clearout sale at the Rosedale Valley Antiques Market at Toronto's Brick Works (550 Bayview Avenue) this Sunday from 9 am – 5 pm. StyleNorth reader Lynn wrote to ask for help promoting the sale saying, "If we don't move some of this stuff out we're in danger of becoming hoarders!"
