The following email was sent to us from Jewel Weeks: I am a psychology grad-turned-interior designer (sort of) in Toronto who got this amazing opportunity last year to design someone’s loft carte blanche… a young bachelor with no possessions for his new loft aside from a mattress! The client’s basic requirements were that he wanted something fun and laid back with a retro-chic feeling- and no purple. Then he let me go to town with a blank slate in total faith. He was the most amazing client ever and let me work by intuition. Most of the stuff you see is all from craigslist or vintage shops with a few Ikea and Home Depot items thrown in. It’s not 100% to what kind of standard I’d like to achieve, but I was pretty happy with it for a first project- mostly because my client was so happy with the result. I love the finished product…superb hip retro vibe, fun colours, and HELLO, it was featured in the Sept 2010 issue of Style at Home magazine (with help from the beautiful photography of Aristea Rizakos). I think you’ve got something here Jewel!! (Check out her website in the future for more of her projects).
