Katherine Newman founded her Toronto-based company Katherine Newman Design, and has a very interesting approach. She will only decorate a home that is jointly built by her partner Peter Cebulak, an architectural designer and builder. Her style is quite stately and far from my taste but I found the following photos to be beautiful nonetheless.
Through her design endeavours also came about Lona Design, a line of furniture designed by Katherine and Peter that is inspired by 18th century English furniture, oriental pieces, shaker style, and French and Danish furniture of the 30's and 40's. So elegantly understated and sophisticated. Now this is more like it!
