Kitchen inspiration

My new house has a kitchen that is pretty cute but could use a HUGE facelift (if finances permit). Here's a photo of it (not the best but this is the only one I have right now).


There are alot of things in here that could go, like that island table thing in the center. I think that was built for the sole purpose to house the dishwasher. The window (you can see a little corner of it) is missing a pane of glass and a screen so it should be replaced, and with a smaller one so I can wrap the cabinets all the way around (it's really low). There's also a door to the yard after the island that doesn't need to be there. Plus, I want to open it to the living room. That being said, this post is another self-serving post. I have ALOT of kitchenware, but I am really excited at the prospect of no upper cabinets, and having rows of open shelving instead. I am not sure how feasible that is since this isn't a very big kitchen but it's a thought. So I dug through my photos and found some kitchens with open shelving, which has made my desire to eliminate the upper cabinets that much worse.

Joshua McHugh


Kim and I are finding ourselves more and more drawn to the inspirational work of leading photographers. Joshua McHugh has a fabulous portfolio. His work has graced the pages of O Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Elle Decor, Domino and so many more. I love the framing of the shots and the amazing light. Extraordinary rooms captured from extraordinary angles by an extraordinary photographer.

James Tse

Toronto photographer James Tse's portfolio is very familiar to me because he's shot some of my favourite spreads in Canadian House and Home magazine. The lighting is so stunning in his photos, I want to be in them sitting on some of those gorgeous chairs. Perhaps I should have called this post "chair porn".

The two sides of Angus McRitchie


Photographer Angus McRitchie understands the exuberance of colour so well. Joyous, riotous, uncontrolled colour is captured through his lens and loses none of its vibrancy in the process. But just as he has a wonderful grasp of bright colour Ritchie can capture the calm earthiness of neutrals as well. Another fabulous Australian photographer. Love this portfolio.

Reader's home


Jessica lives in Anacortes, Guemes Island, USA. Jessica lives in heaven. A printmaker, artist and picture-taker she wanted to share her flickr set that traces the building of her amazing home and studio space. I'm speechless. You really do live in a wonderful house with a mind blowing studio with perhaps the most beautiful view I have seen. Check out her website Slow Loris Shirts for the coolest tees!
