Michael Penney

Michael Penney is a decorator, stylist, blogger, former magazine editor at Canadian House & Home and is a soon-to-be shop owner. He is also a big fan of DIY projects, including dip-dye drapes that he did for H&H mag that I fell in love and have been wanting to do ever since.

I have been a fan of his work for some time as he's clearly got a great eye for design, creates relaxed yet sophisticated spaces and I think I can safely say that the photos below are going to make you want to start re-decorating!

A Muskoka cottage

We received an email about this "cottage" which I think is an odd term for such a HUGE home that is located in probably the most expensive "cottage country" in Canada. The Muskokas are where them rich folk hang out in the summer. And homes like this are not their primary residences! Insanity, I know. The interior of this home is pretty blah, but I was blown away by the views out of each and every window (which are apparently all fancy top-of-the-line windows says the info we were given on the home). Picturesque!

Photographer crush

I have had a crush on Toronto photographer Angus Fergusson (ok, his work really) since the dawn of time...or when I started reading shelter magazines religiously. Like white on rice, or stray cats to my house, Angus' work is all over Canadian mags and has been for some time. The 15 photos below prove I'm not just running my mouth off. (P.S. Jo's crushing too - see here).

Nicola Marc

I have been a big fan of Montreal-based Nicola Marc's styling for years, since I first started religiously reading shelter magazines. She has worked for all of my favourite magazines (all of which I have/had subscriptions for) like Canadian Home & Country, Canadian House & Home, Style At Home, Chocolat etc. Needless to say her portfolio is filled with gorgeously styled spaces that are without a doubt magazine worthy.
