Colorless green ideas sleep furiously

Posted on Thu, 25 Oct 2007 by KiM

The title of this post is a phrase composed by Noam Chomsky that essentially means nothing. It does however have the word “green” in it, and this post is about rooms with lovely green walls, because the other day a reader left a comment that photos of green rooms were hard to come by. I had a few stashed away…

Todhunter Earle Interiors

Posted on Thu, 25 Oct 2007 by KiM


Todhunter Earle Interiors is the partnership of Kate Earle and Emily Todhunter, who not only create fabulous spaces but employ three product designers who design fabric, wallpaper, lamps and rugs and furniture for their clients. Their designs are for the most part contemporary, and I fell in love with their work once I saw the photo above. Gorgeous!!!

Shameless plugs

Posted on Mon, 22 Oct 2007 by KiM

It appears Jo and I are embarking on some pretty big ventures at the moment and I wanted to take the time for a little shameless plug for each of us. Let’s start with me, since I have a wee bit more at stake. My house is up for sale, and I’m really proud of ALL the work we’ve put into this place. But it’s time for me to move on. So if anyone out there is looking for a townhouse renovated and decorated by yours truly in Ottawa (Kanata actually)…

Jo has recently opened her Etsy store and it’s stocked of some of the most amazing artwork. She is so freaking talented. And I am so fortunate to already own several of her pieces. I’m like a proud Mom. The first two are photos of ones I own, and the other two she has available in her shop, that I am also itching to own.

Stunning art, lucite chairs, colourful suzanis, gorgeous furniture…did I mention stunning art? These are some of my favourite elements from the exquisite portfolio of super-talented photographer Roger Davies. My two favourite photos are above.

*A little side note: I am putting my house up for sale this Wednesday so things are a little crazy here. I’m hoping to be able to find some time to get posts done for the week. If not, Jo will be posting as usual. (I’m so lucky to have a blog partner). So if I don’t answer any emails this week or if my posts are brief or non-existent, it’s because I’m vacuuming for the 324th time.
