Crossing the Line

I headed down to Seattle and the premium outlets in Tulalip last week for a little shopping. I didn’t intend this to be a design inspired trip…I was on a mission for clothes…but I did see some cool stuff in my travels… At the premium outlets there is a restoration Hardware outlet that should be visited […]

Roll With It

Recently Ive been looking for a bar for a client (and secretly for myself too). You know, a cool and preferably movable creature with a slight edge in terms of its design.  Enter the wheels, cranks and other odd industrial materials…these ones IMHO are worthy of a look.

Moody Spanish

This house has been on my radar for awhile. I love Spanish style architecture and the contemporary decorating achieves the right amount of tension to create an eclectic interior (which I love) in an overall look I would call moody Spanish. Enjoy. Home by Ownby Design

Members Only

You might have guessed that I poke around the Internet a fair bit checking out what’s new and what I can’t live without. Lately I’ve been coming across a lot more ‘Members Only’ websites that offer exclusive members only access and pricing on designer goods. At first I was all insulted…thinking to myself that the Internet was […]

My Cool – Six Pack

I often get asked what I like and although it changes I assembled six things or ideas here that I am really drawn to….or saving up for…at the moment. To me, these items or themes are current and cool but also represent good value as investments and timeless style that can be re-used in other areas of […]

Play Room Perfection

This fabulous playroom was deigned by Jeff Andrews and featured in the premiere issue of Trad Home in April. I immediately sent it to my clients and friends with kids and have done a mood board and shoplist for anyone who would like to re-create a room using it as inspiration.  Of course you can always […]

Kitchen – My Take

Here is another room in my series showing you how to achieve my eclectic style using resources on Vancouver Island.  Some of you may recall that I’ve been re-decorating my kitchen over the past couple months and was inspired by a Los Angeles kitchen featured in my March Crib Crush.  I wanted a slightly retro vibe, but […]

Small Cool

I’ve been following a small space contest on Apartment Therapy called “Small Cool” for the past few weeks. Today I noticed an entry from someone in Nanaimo so I HAD to check it out. It was this incredible 180 square foot masterpiece of space planning and innovation. The voting has ended by the time you […]
