My house, cats and I in a magazine

This is just a quick post to mention that my house, my cats and myself are in the Interiors 2017 issue of Ottawa magazine out now for your viewing pleasure. I am so honoured to have my home featured locally. I've been fortunate to have features in books and mags with my previous home but I this is my first local spread of my home and the first time someone actually had a professional photographer, Marc Fowler in this case, come and shoot it. The experience was a total blast, a lot of hard work but it really paid off in the end. I absolutely love the photos and the article is a total hoot (writer Melanie Scott included some quotes I never dreamed she would use - LOL!). If you're in the area get yourself a copy - the other homes are reeeeeally good. (If you are not from around here hubby found you can buy it online through PressReader.com)


A mag feature and some dishes

It's a busy week & weekend for me so I didn't have time to do much blog surfing for my blog favourites post so instead I give you more stuff I took photos of. First up is a magazine feature - 6 whole pages! - of my kitchen renovation. It's the Well-Styled Home summer 2013 issue of Kitchens & Baths. 

Another major event this week was the arrival of more of my Wonkiware dishes from Green Light District. When Deborah & David's shop was located here in Ottawa, I discovered these gorgeous handmade dishes from an artist in South Africa and fell in love. I purchased a few pieces each time I visited (they're investment dishes shall I say) hoping to eventually acquire a decent amount to be able to use them when having peeps over for a meal. I had a set of 4 (soup bowls, pasta bowls, side plates and dinner plates) and when I heard from Deborah that the artist had unexpectedly changed up the style of some of them, she agreed to bring some to Ottawa with her on a recent trip. I totally adore these dishes and have blogged them before (I think the last time was here) but could not resist taking more photos as these are my dream dishes and I am overjoyed to now have a set of 8 (except for side plates, Deborah only had 2 left of the original style).

Inside Out

The latest issue of Inside Out magazine is here and it's full of yummy room candy and inspiration. Managing editor Lee Tran Lam kindly sent over some pics from the story on NZ fashion dynamo Karen Walker's home. Wow! I'm a sucker for anything by Vico Magistretti and those red dining chairs are amazing. The stylist on the story was Katie Lockhart and photographer Emma Bass. On page 41 you'll even find a little piece on Desire to Inspire. I'm doing a happy dance because I'm in one of my favourite magazines! Thanks for featuring us Inside Out.

P.S. Don't forget if you live outside Australia you don't have to miss out on one of the best interiors magazines around. You can subscribe through Zinio.
