Mark Olson

Mark Olson's photography will be familiar to avid long-time readers of Canadian House & Home. Several photos below are from some of my favourite spreads in the magazine. Stunning!

superkül

I finally got a chance to flip through the latest issue of Canadian House & Home that's been sitting on my kitchen counter tempting me most of the week, and I was excited to find a Canadian architectural firm in the magazine whose work is mesmerizing. Based in Toronto, superkül is the award-winning firm of Meg Graham and Andre D'Elia. A modern cottage retreat that they designed is featured in the magazine, which some photos can be found below, but first I wanted to feature a completed renovated home I found on their website.

Formerly a blacksmith's shop, then a horse shed and then an artist's apartment and studio, they did amazing things to turn this into a single family home, despite regulations that no additional openings in the walls were allowed for more light. In this case they had to get it from above. I am completely in awe of this transformation.



Here is the cottage I mentionned, a 2000 sq.ft. modern stunner on the Georgian Bay. (Photos by Tom Arban, superkül and Lorne Bridgman)

Battersby Howat

I thought I'd end off the work week with a post similar to Jo's below, that is all about views. The Vancouver architecture, interior and landscape design firm of Battersby Howat knows how to take full advantage of views. Stunning!

Robin Stubbert

To end of the week, I thought I'd showcase some really pretty photos from Canadian photographer Robin Stubbert whose work has been featured in Country Living, Canadian Home & Country, and Style at Home (DTI has a mention in this month's issue!). Enjoy the weekend - get some gardening done, visit or at least call your mother on Sunday and I'm going to try and finally get my bedroom done-ish.

Michael Graydon

Michael Graydon is a familiar name to me, as he regularly shoots for Canadian House & Home and Style at Home magazines. He has an amazing talent, creating such fresh and bright photos. Plus, some of his photos are immediately going into my inspiration folder....such as this one below:


I mean, can pink stairs BE ANY CUTER?!?! I have to repaint mine as the white I chose isn't the right shade, and I'm wondering if I can muster up that much courage.

I have neighbours who can look down into my backyard, and another project on my todo list is to create some privacy on part of my deck. When I saw the next two photos I freaked. It's what I've been dreaming about since I bought my house.
