Donna Griffith


What I love about super talented Canadian photographer Donna Griffith's work is the colour. Bright saturated unabashed colour. That and her understanding of white. OK that's a colour as well. Love the lighting and the composition. These beautiful spaces are so honest, not tricked up at all. Great photos!

The journey begins...

A little while ago I hinted that I had a big project I was working on. Well, I thought it was about time to let you all in on it. Several months ago Jo and I were contacted by Mike at Greentea Design who was interested in an ad on the blog. I was stoked about this because I had seen their timber, Asian-style kitchen cabinets before and thought they were fantastic. I thought about how horrible my existing kitchen was and a lightbulb went off – why not see if they’d sponsor a kitchen reno project? And what do you know – they went for it!!! They agreed to supply me with the cabinets I needed, and in return I would blog about my kitchen renovation (most of which will be included on a new blog) from planning down to the finished product. A pretty decent tradeoff considering this is what I was working with:

(I had to use an old photo here because I know some of you will be sad to see the kitchen as it is now go in the dumpster).

Dark chocolate


I'm the sort of girl who likes a ristretto coffee, a few squares of dark bitter chocolate and perhaps a palette cleaning ;) hazelnut liqueur. This has nothing to do with real estate stalking except for the darkest chocolate brown exterior paint on this inner city worker's cottage in my home town. It's a brave colour choice in a suburb where cream and brunswick green predominate. The house appears staged for these real estate shots. I'd add another layer or two with personal items and fabulous art, loads of books in those empty shelves and fill those verandas with greenery and cane. Oh and a piece or two more of midcentury classic furniture.
