A Canadian's art and an Australian's shop

Since I am off today and am avoiding chores around the house, I thought I would give Jo a little break from a couple WINKS this coming weekend. First, I received an email from Zoe Pawlak, a painter and mom living and working in White Rock, British Columbia. She is incredibly talented, and all her work had me totally intrigued. Gorgeous colours and touching portraits and drawings. I love it all. See more of her amazing art here.


Lee McCabe also wrote us about a homewares site that his wife Jennifer has just launched, based in Australia. It's called Whiteport, which is a perfectly suitable name because all the products are white. "Our products look equally good in a city loft apartment or a sprawling beach house. White products are simple, timeless and complement any colour scheme." Selling all sorts of accessories for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and dining rooms, if you love white you've got to check out Jennifer's store (and they ship internationally). Here are some of my favourite items.

Art by Andrew King

Nora, from my former 'burb of Kanata, emailed with a link to local artist Andrew King. I'm always eager to plug Canadians, especially from here in Ottawa. Andrew's art is almost cartoonish, at times humorous, and I can't help but smile when I look at it. His work can be seen at the Terence Robert Gallery on Sussex, for our Ottawa readers, and he will soon be featured at the Toronto Art Expo. Thanks Nora!

Kimberley Seldon


Interior Designer, author, TV host and producer, keynote speaker, furniture designer, inspiration travel guide and style mentor Kimberley Seldon still has time in her hectic schedule to create these beautifully serene and sophisticated spaces. Elegant, muted palettes are infused with a luxe look. She's a Canadian design dynamo!

James Tse

Toronto photographer James Tse's portfolio is very familiar to me because he's shot some of my favourite spreads in Canadian House and Home magazine. The lighting is so stunning in his photos, I want to be in them sitting on some of those gorgeous chairs. Perhaps I should have called this post "chair porn".

Lona Design

Katherine Newman founded her Toronto-based company Katherine Newman Design, and has a very interesting approach. She will only decorate a home that is jointly built by her partner Peter Cebulak, an architectural designer and builder. Her style is quite stately and far from my taste but I found the following photos to be beautiful nonetheless.


Through her design endeavours also came about Lona Design, a line of furniture designed by Katherine and Peter that is inspired by 18th century English furniture, oriental pieces, shaker style, and French and Danish furniture of the 30's and 40's. So elegantly understated and sophisticated. Now this is more like it!
