The joys of owning a 90ish year old home


This week has been a crazy week for me. I was stuck at home Monday and Tuesday with a leaky basement (we had VERY mild weather) and realized I had to get the eavestrough replaced on the left side of the house ($800). Then I had to skip work today because I had an electrician coming in to replace my electrical panel with breakers instead of fuses and some other minor stuff. ($2800). I have just GOT to plug the electrical company that came because they were SUPER nice, worked hard, and did a few extra things for me when they noticed some shady work in the basement. So anyone in Ottawa needing electrical work done, call Ellacott Electric. They rock and although I almost teared up when I wrote that cheque, I have a nice fuzzy feeling now that I know my house has less of a chance burning to the ground. And that photo above? Compared to what that used to look like, it's a work of ART.

Dogs on furniture

Thanks to Biljana for sending in this photo of her dog Grappa (in back), and Grappa's mom Elsa. Looks like they had a great Christmas. Hope they got lots of toys and treats.

Kate Hume

Kate Hume lives in Amsterdam and designs furniture, mouth-blown glass and interiors. Her style is incredible. Modern and luxurious, with lots of fun contemporary art. Her work has been showcased in museums and exhibitions around the world and featured in magazines like Architectural Digest, Elle Decoration and Metropolitan Home. So hard to choose only a handful of photos to post...

I want to live here and there


I love losing myself in my favourite magazine websites and one of the best is Marie Claire Maison. I really love the home of stylist Marthe Desmoulins. A modern colourful reworking of a 17th century building.


The second home I would move into immediately looked very familiar to me until I realised that Kim had posted about it back in March. Now there are more photos of this Amsterdam home on the Marie Claire Maison website. With grey one of the major trends for the coming year these fashion forward interiors are definitely worth a revisit.

Andrej Kopac


Andrej Kopac is a Toronto photographer who has shot for Canadian House and Home magazine, which explains why his work is so familiar to me. The photos are memorable.
