My mug in a mag

Some of our readers have noticed that we were mentionned in this month's Canadian House & Home magazine. They did a story called Our Favourite Canadian Design Blogs and since this blog is half Canadian they wanted to include the blog and me! It is such an honour. I have subscribed to H&H for years and it is by far one of my favourite mags.


An AMAZING local photographer, Jordan Craig, came by one morning and photographed me in my home office and took some photos of vignettes around the house (which to my dismay none were used). To my relief he brought along his wife who applied my makeup (and I took note!). It was a total blast, Jordan and his wife were awesome, and he brought along the coolest camera I've ever seen (a Hasselblad from the 60s with an attachment where the film would go to make it digital). I asked my boyfriend to help me take photos of the process and both of us forgot for the most part. Here are a few we did manage to take.




Jordan was kind enough to send me the photos he took around my office and living room. They are fantastic so I thought I would share them.








Congratulations to the other bloggers included (Jan of poppytalk, Marie-Eve of Lake Jane and Arren of Arren Williams Design Lab, and thank you Jordan and House & Home!!

Jason Martin


Interior designer Jason Martin emailed to share his latest venture. Jason, who owned Silho Furniture in LA and now works exclusively in interior design and custom furniture, has started a new photo blog in preparation for an on-line portfolio. He jokingly wrote that "it is super basic right now but we will launch more soon including a a dedicated website" (which Desire to Inspire will trumpet when it's live). "We are working very hard to photograph five finished projects and are in the early stages of three more - so there's lots to come. By the first of the year we will expand the tumblr site to be more of a journal and it will include posts like before and after photos, progress reports on projects and informative interviews with vendors and other designers." Hate to put the pressure on you Jason but if these are just a taste of your work then the race is on to finish your website. We need to see MORE :)

Anna Ranung

I want to be a stylist when I grow up. In the meantime, I'll enjoy perusing portfolios such as that of talented Anna Ranung.

Moris Moreno

Moris Moreno's photography will knock your socks off (and those would be big thick wool ones if you live near Ottawa where it is brutally cold). The spaces are incredible and his angles work so well, as if you're peering in as to not disturb anyone. Stunning.

Francis Smith


So who clued me in to the work of Jennifer Flanders? Why the photographer Francis Smith (although he's at pains to point out that one or two of the shots on her website aren't his). I first featured Francis' portfolio last year with his amazing shots of the 2007 Hampton Designer Showhouse. And 2008? These are the shots he captured of this year's rooms created by some of America's leading interior designers. Francis you see has worked with the best as his portfolio attests. Actually we have unwittingly posted his work many times on this blog. Don't miss the rest of his portfolio. Great talent great shots!
