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.
II BY IV Design Associates is a Toronto-based interior design firm that was created in 1990 by two amazing designers, Dan Menchions and Keith Rushbrook. They've designed a variety of spaces, from a café in the CN Tower, "The Beer Store", to an office for IBM. Thankfully they also excel at residential interiors, and can easily design a room in all black, or all cream, or even a bold orange. In the end, their spaces are modern but exude warmth and a sense of grandeur.
Luce et Studio was the brainchild of Canadian architect Jennifer Luce and was established in 1990 in San Diego. "The studio focuses on innovative responses to design and architectural challenges at all scales. Passionate about research, new technologies, materials and a strong philosophy about art in architecture, the work defies classification and explores innovation." Internationally recognized and awarded for incredible modern design.
Claude-Simon Langlois, a photographer from Montreal, recently emailed me his portfolio. I LOVE receiving emails from people promoting their talents, especially from fellow Canadians. So a big thank you to Claude-Simon, and here's a peek into his portfolio.
