Apartment Sneak Peak Revealed!

I am so excited to share with you the first official photo of my apartment, as featured in...STYLE AT HOME! image

Yes, after almost a year of living in our humble abode, I can finally share a photo and announce that it is being published in Style At Home, an amazing Canadian magazine that I have long admired and am thrilled and honoured to be included in! With the talented team of Stacey Brandford behind the lens and senior design editor extraordinaire Margot Austin at the helm, the shoot was a total blast and I cannot wait to see the rest of the gorgeous photos in print.


The photo can be currently seen in the back of the new May issue and Edie and Lucille are so pleased that they made the cut! You'll be able to see the whole spread on May 9th when the June issue arrives so make sure you're a subscriber (if you aren't already in which case you should be!) or that you have a date with your local news stand.

So what do you think?

Ready For Spring

This image from Designer’s Guild is mimicking the fresh energy of spring that I’m feeling since we’ve gained one more hour of daylight. It would be nice if the temperature would cooperate too, but at least we’re one step closer in the right direction.


Some other images to get you in a springy mood:

Stacey Brandford Photography

I had the pleasure of watching Stacey Brandford in action when he photographed my apartment for the upcoming magazine feature that I’ll be able to share with you soon. I was quite excited knowing he would be capturing my little ol’ space because he has been at the helm of so many great shoots I have admired in both Style At Home and House and Home. Besides being absolutely pleasant and professional – Stacey had such great synergy with the editor, which made for a fabulous and fast shoot day and good times for all!

Here are some of my favourite photos from his portfolio – hard to believe his shots of my own apartment will be joining their ranks soon!

Cotton Candy Clouds on Canvas

Last year I was introduced to the awe-inspiring paintings of Will Cotton and months later looking at them still leaves me breathless. The American artist studied in France and New York and combines his love of baking and sweets with his craft to create each of his luscious pieces.  All of his work is delicious but it is the pastel pink cotton candy clouds mixed with feminine flesh and the playful ribbon stripe crowns that make me smile the most.

PS- Does Miss Katy Perry look familiar? Cotton collaborated with the pop star for her most recent album cover! You can even watch a video of their work together here.
