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".
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!
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.
Ian McLeod and Kerry Johnson are two guys with a fabulous sense of style and a great partnership. Together they form Johnson and McLeod Design Consultants, based in Vancouver. They emphasize clean-lines and comfort, and while their designs are pretty simple, they are timeless in the same breath. I love their portfolio because it's comprised of spaces you would find in an average home, and because their designs are not fussy, I can see myself living in each one of these rooms.
