***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*** HomeSense Stockyards Location + A Giveaway!

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


If you follow me on instagram, then you know that last week I travelled to Toronto to do a little shopping with hubs and to take a peek at the newest HomeSense location (psssst use the hashtag #HomeSenseStockyards on instagram).  The Stockyards store is located at 75 Gunns Road.

You guys, this store is lovely.  Inspiring displays and plenty of selection.  If you're in Toronto, you need to check it out, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what the HomeSense team has done.

I think what amazed me the most was the huge selection!  Aisle up on aisle of great pieces for your home, which obviously, I love.












I could have left with several side tables....




I mean, seriously!  There's a side table for every room here!

I absolutely loved the blue painting on the bottom shelf, gorgeous colours:


If could hoard lamps, I would.  Regretting not buying the one in the middle.  Or the one on the far left.  Le sigh.


Outdoor entertaining inspiration....loooove the white cooler on wheels!  May just be the perfect piece for #operationbackyardoasis, no?


Their displays were seriously so well done (please excuse le blur in the first photo):


~my favourite~

~my second favourite~


Of course I haaaaaad to pick up a little something to bring home with me.  I spotted this lovely capiz shell tray and immediately grabbed it!  It's perfect for the dining room, just need to style it:


Now for the fun part!  HomeSense has kindly given me a $100 gift card to giveaway to one of YOU to celebrate the opening of their new Toronto location!  Awwww, yeah!!!  Just imagine what you could buy!!! 

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me your favourite HomeSense find! (be sure to leave your email address if you don't have a google account so that I can contact you if you're the winner). That's it!  (Sorry, this giveaway is open to Canadian residents only).  Giveaway will close on Monday, June 9th, 2014 at 9:15am EST.

Good luck!!!

Cheers,

  4. My favourite find was this amazing mustard yellow and cream geometric rug for my bedroom. This space is filled with various shades of navy, brass and creams and the rug really grounds the space !

  6. I have so many it's hard to say just one!I'm a college kid with a need to decorate so homesense is my go to always. I have an awesome taupe and cream zebra print foot stool that adds some fun to every place I've lived, I've had it for 4 years now, and I have a great wooden block letter "ect" sign that I feel gives a nice little bit of quirk to my living room. Plus way to many more things to count!

  11. I LOVE HomeSense. I was at their store in Vancouver on Friday and spent $1000. In all fairness, it was for work - I'm a high school foods teachers. They have some wonderful kitchen equipment. I bought myself these two Moscow Mule mugs by Strawberry street. They are copper and gorgeous. My husband I used them all weekend.

  12. My fav. find is a white and beige damask douvet cover for our master bedroom. Subtle and gorgeous!

  13. I bought 2 beautiful Tahari (oh, I love Tahari!) bedroom lamps. The base is mirrored and they have a rectangular black shade. Then I found a stunning round mosaic mirror that complements the lamps so nicely. Now I'm looking for new, all-white linens. Love Homesense and love following you on Instagram!

  15. how fun is that?! awesome you got to go to TO and check out the new spot Julie!
    I go to Homesense every time I drive by {which is a couple times a week} and I have to say my weakness there are linens and the outdoor items. My patio would be very happy with the gift card :)

  16. I live pretty close to the Stockyards area but haven't been up that way since the new HomeSense opened there. It looks gorgeous, thanks for sharing your pics! Must have been a fun trip.

    My favourite HomeSense find? Too hard to pick just one! I love my sculptural bust, convex mirror and capiz-handled magnifying glass that I picked up not too long ago.

  18. My bird/wildflower art for my entry is my absolute fave homesense find!! I just love it!!

  19. So I read this post on my phone earlier and thought the legs on those nightstands were red... totally loved that! They are still pretty but what, on closer inspection, turned out to be protective padding had me all excited for a minute.

    My fave Homesense find... there are lots but the pink striped chair in my living room was a total score. Love that thing!!

  20. I love the mirror in the picture of your favourite display at the stockyards. Hopefully it is still there (or one like it) when I make the trip!

    I have many favourite finds - but the italian pasta bowl I picked up just after meeting my husband a couple of years ago is at the top of the list. We use it every week!

    Thanks for the preview Julie!

  22. There are so many steals at Home Sense, and so many favourites. I like to buy designers' fabric shower curtains from their bath section and re-upholster chairs or benches. I give a much better second life to a piece that now looks unique.

  23. When I was pregnant with my first son, I found a big wicker basket with a liner that says "Baby Things"! I still have it in my son's room, full of his toys. It was so cheap and it's beautiful!

  35. My old red and cream striped rug. For $40. Which my kids have since destroyed. Needless to say we are in need of a new one in the living room.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow! So many great finds. It must have been torturous to have to leave so many behind. But I guess that just means you'll have to make a few more trips back to Toronto soon! :) I've had so many great HomeSense finds over the years, but I think my favourite is still our family room rug from our previous home that we scored for 40% off!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I would say 99% of my furnishings & accessories in my home are HomeSense! I can't just pick one item, I'm in love with every piece I own!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Pillows from Dwell Studio!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I actually got some amazing Easter plates recently there. They were in the clearance section and incredibly beautiful!

  43. I haven't been for a long time but I could use some nice rugs and curtains.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fun contest! I have heard amazing things about the new location. My favourite Homesense find is hard to pick because I am there about once a week, but I will say the two matching white cake stands.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I may be addicted to Homesense! I feel like it's bad luck if I go past without stopping in. I'd have to say my favourite finds have been the lanterns we will use as centrepieces for our upcoming nuptuals!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh, so hard to choose a favourite! I'd probably have to say my pair of white geometric lamps from the Colin & Justin line. I don't think I could ever part with them!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My favorite Homesense find was the Laguiole cutlery set I came across. When I was in France I saw them full price and they are pretty expensive. I was thrilled to see them here for a very good price. By far one of the best purchases!
