Lona Design

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!

Bromley Caldari


I'm on a clean contemporary kick today. These amazing spaces were designed by New York architectural firm Bromley Caldari. Wonderful use of light, inclusion of the exterior spaces and clever spatial solutions. Oh and that artist's studio is to die for while the monumental screened porch is perfect .... just perfect!

Urban Pad


Award winning designer Andrew Mitchell is the man behind Melbourne based Urban Pad. One moment clean minimalist lines, the next luxury and masculine elegance. I love the understanding of the bright Australian light whether exploiting it or retreating into cool darkness. A simple colour palette and eclectic furniture are also a trademark. Great portfolio.

Margaret Mulligan

Margaret Mulligan is a photographer from Toronto. I adore her portfolio because so many of her photos are taken in such bright light. It almost doesn't matter what's in the spaces - the lighting is so beautiful. And of course, there's a couple of cat photos I fell in love with and had to include.

Mabley Handler Interior Design

Jennifer Mabley and Austin Handler are a husband-wife team of designers based in New York who focus on designs for homes in the Hamptons. Their style is very modest, clean, contemporary...timeless classics. I think my favourite piece has to be that silver tub. How glam!
