Evoke International Design

In honour of it being Canada Day I thought I'd feature Canadian talent in today's post. David Nicolay and Robert Edmonds are Vancouver's Evoke International Design who dabble in conceptual thinking, spacial and interior design and graphic design for restaurant, retail and entertainment design and branding; residential and corporate office design. They have a few residential projects under their belt that are modern and sleek, and gorgeous inside and out. I particularly love their creativity with staircases. HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!!

Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, if the photo is dark or fuzzy then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

I just love your pets on furniture. This may be because our beautiful dog Curly Sullivan (an Australian working dog) spends most of his time on ours.
- Caroline (Barossa Valley, South Australia)

Hjalmar is now 1 year old and full of energy. But every now and then he relaxes. For a little while ;)
- Janne (Norway)

Oliver (four months old), and Foxy (two years old), both Dachshund mixes, settle in for a nap on the sofa.
- Melanie (St. Petersburg, FL)

 Bathing

It may be winter in my part of the world and the whole idea of bathing Japanese style in this indoor outdoor bathroom is just a little too challenging but as soon as Spring rolled round (temperature and leaves on the trees) you couldn't keep me out! By b.e. architecture.

Trumpeting Tondro

You've seen his work everywhere. Name a leading shelter magazine and his photos have graced their pages. US, Europe, here in Australia. If it's all about being on top of good design then you can guarantee that Trevor Tondro's photos will be the ones that take you there. I've featured his work before. Kim's a huge fan too. But then again aren't we all? Drum roll please ....
