A much needed vacation

Olaf V.

Hi folks. Kim here. In case you haven't been over to see the latest post on my "kim's page" tab, I am off to Vegas tomorrow morning until Monday. Despite it being a much needed vacation (that I haven't had in a few years), my little sister is getting married there Saturday. I'm super excited because of course it's in Vegas and I've never been, but also because she's marrying Dave who is SUCH a nice guy. Although I'll be offline for 5 days (excited about that too I have to admit), I have scheduled posts to publish in my absence and of course Jo will be around posting as well. Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers and I'll see you back here on Tuesday!

Dan Marty


It's a daydream of mine. Live in a designer showroom after hours. When the clients and staff go home I'd pop out of my hiding place, put on some music, dim the lights and live in my perfect "home". Imagine living in Dan Marty's showroom. I could be very comfortable here. Dan, a talented L.A. interior designer travels the world bringing home exquisite pieces that he displays in "rooms". A line of chairs against a wall, a wall of fabric samples, a big box store mentality just doesn't cut it here. The clever Mr Marty knows that his clients can't resist a flawlessly arranged room filled with treasure after treasure.  Spaces like these are overflowing with inspiration.





Lucy Interior Design

"Inspired by textiles, fashion and art, I love to add energy, scale and drama to a space." Lucy T. Penfield

This interior designer from Minnesota creates soothing spaces that are a cohesive mixture of modern and traditional elements that blend seamlessly and effortlessly. I love her strong yet subtle colour palettes. I also am madly in love with the hanging sofa and the slide-out shelf that creates an impromptu office.



In the press

The blog has had a bit of press out there recently that we're really stoked about (ok, particularly me being the Canadian). Today on the Canadian House & Home website a gallery of photos went live that I selected as DTI's favourite interiors. So go check it out here and find out what our 10 favourites are.

Another biggie is a story I was contacted about for the Toronto Star newspaper. The subject was wall murals and I was interviewed by one of their reporters who ended up using a photo of my living room! Check the story out here.

A huge thanks to Lisa at H&H for including us in their blogger galleries and Paola at the Star for including me in her mural story!!
