I am off work this week, and before I head down to the dungeon otherwise known as my basement to tear it apart and remove all sorts of moldy wood (I know, how exciting does that sound), I thought I'd leave you all with much more pleasant images in your heads, like the simple but beautiful photography of Torontonian Michael Alberstat.

Tamara Jensen is an artist here in Ottawa and I thought I would give her work a quick mention since she's having a showing coming up. Her work varies from pop art to abstract to portraits. I am totally loving the first one below, titled Cyndi Lauper. She is showing some of her pop art paintings at La Petite Mort Gallery on July 18th. Her boyfriend Adam is catering (he's the Sous Chef at the fabulous Social Restaurant and Lounge), and there will be a DJ and bar. Sounds like a fun way to spend an evening!
Altius is a Toronto-based firm that specializes in residential design. I love featuring Canadian folks on the blog, and when I found this firm mentionned in a magazine spread from a few years back, I was pleased as punch to find a post-worthy portfolio on their website. It's modern, clean and warm with lots of wood and huge expanses of windows used throughout. Incredible attention to detail.
Virginia MacDonald is a Canadian photographer whose work is all too familiar to me, as she's worked for several magazines that I subscribe to, such as Style at Home, Canadian House and Home and Canadian Home and Country. Her portfolio is full of bright, fresh spaces. And the kicker - her portfolio includes a selection of adorable animal photos that had me grinning from ear to ear.
Alda Pereira is based in Vancouver and she is an unbelievably talented interior designer. I adore her style - refined modern with bold hits of colour, graphic artwork, and to-die-for furnishings. It's young and hip and simply fabulous. And I love it. LOVE IT.
