News from Crawford Alexander

Jo and I received a press release the other day that I had to share. It came from the guys of Crawford Alexander, the interior design shop here in Ottawa where I purchased pendants for my new kitchen.

"With great excitement Luc Crawford and Jamie LeBlanc, Ottawa’s Original Design Guys, announce the opening of their new location for Crawford Alexander Designer Boutique at 1089 Somerset Street West. After nearly 2 months of renovations, the dynamic duo have completely transformed this former used appliance depot to a fabulous Designer Boutique with their Designs By 2 studio offices located on site. Custom furniture designed by them and by other great Canadian & American manufacturers boasts an array of great fashion fabrics. Filling the shop is a selection of one of a kind lamps, rugs, pillows, bedding and amazing accessories hand chosen by them while on their design travels. The philosophy is simple, to provide products of unique shape, form and function at multiple price levels."

I am really excited about this announcement because their new location is just a couple blocks from my house. I am so anxious to check it out. Here is a sneak peek.

Wish

I was checking out magazines at the drugstore the other day and came across Wish. It's a Canadian magazine that's got everything: beauty, fashion, food and decor. I bought it because it featured the home of Suzanne Dimma, the home design director and new editor of Canadian House & Home. Her home rocks, but unfortunately there are no photos on the website of it, at least yet. But here are some others I found.

Taylor Hannah Architect


Interior and exterior are equally important for Toronto design firm Taylor Hannah Architect. Dee Dee Taylor Hannah and her talented team craft everything from the perfect jewel box bathroom to jets and yachts. Their work is timeless, luxurious and oh so elegant. But there's more. Dee Dee is also the co-owner of a successful construction and project management company .... conception to completion.

Donna Griffith


What I love about super talented Canadian photographer Donna Griffith's work is the colour. Bright saturated unabashed colour. That and her understanding of white. OK that's a colour as well. Love the lighting and the composition. These beautiful spaces are so honest, not tricked up at all. Great photos!
