Bathroom Prettiness

Happy Friday! Hope you've all had a good week.

I just returned from a camping trip and, on the last day, I have to admit, I was longing for a good soak in a pretty bathroom....this one would have worked well.

I shot this bathroom, designed by homeowner Shereen de Rousseau, with the help of her friend, designer Nancy Riesco, for Style At Home. You can read the entire story with all the little details, and how to get the look her look, here

Have a lovely weekend!

Kitchen Love

Hope you had a nice weekend! We're on day 32 of no rain here in Vancouver. Not the norm, but I'm quite enjoying it.

Thought I'd start off the week with a little kitchen love. I shot this beautiful space, designed by the team of The Cross, for Style At Home magazine.

I'm especially loving this dining area. Light, airy, with windows that open up to a forest.  "Love" prints by Jen Ramos. 

Could you hang out in this kitchen? I know I could. 

Have a great day!

A Happy Family Home

How's your week going? Mine has been busy shooting two homes, a video project with my pal, Heather, and getting ready for the Vancouver West Elm etsy event this Saturday. Crazy week, but fun. 

If you've been reading my blog, you know that I like to share images from magazine shoots that I've done, featuring the designers I work with. I love seeing all the different styles, and tastes, that they all have. Today, I'd like to share a home designed by Angela Robinson with cabinets by Tanya Schoenroth. They make a great team.  The entire story is in the June issue of Style At Home.

I thought this walk-thru, from dining room to kitchen, was a great idea. Lots of extra storage and a perfect spot to do a little prep work. 

Nice little bit of d.i.y. artwork - the rusted bit of a gate for wall art. 

Stunning coffee table by Brent Comber. Prints by David Burdeny.

Fun way to mat and frame family photos. 

The family room with more local art, and a fantastic rug from Anthropologie. 

What do you think? Is this a home you could live in? Is it your style? Would love to hear from you!

Hope to see you at the West Elm Etsy event on Saturday May 25th! Lots of great stuff to check out, and there will also be Nanaimo Bar cupcakes, by Rosie of Butter Baked Goods. Yum. Click here, for more details.

The New Domestic At Home

Last summer, I had the pleasure of shooting Nerissa Goco, and her daughter Luna, at her home that she shares with husband Peter Hoang. Nerissa is the talented graphic designer behind The New Domestic. Love her textiles and bags. Their fantastic 70's rancher is featured in this month's Style At Home. Thought I'd share some of it with you...

Nerissa and Peter have such a great eye for putting together all their vintage finds and collectibles. It's done sparingly too, which makes for a calm bedroom. 

Not only is Nerissa an amazing graphic designer, she can bake too. 

I love the clever little display crate....and the blueberry crumble pie. Let's just say, we shot this as fast as we could ;)  

Snack time for Luna, in their new kitchen. The wall of bamboo, outside the window, looks so pretty and better than any old curtain or blind for privacy. 

Mom and daughter crafting it up in their well stocked craft room. 

What do you think of their happy home? Could you live there? I could. 

Have a good day!

Before & After for Friday

Hello again! That week flew by, didn't it? Is it just me?

I'm wrapping up a busy shoot week, with a little before & after inspiration brought to you by Peter Wilds, a great designer and pal. This is his office/studio, located in the Gastown area of Vancouver. I shot this story for Style At Home and it's in the current issue.

That's it for now! I'm off to Australia tonight, but I plan on posting from down under. I plan to do a little catching up with all of your blogs on my Christmas break too! 

Have a great weekend! Back soon.

City Living in Gastown

How was your weekend? If you're in Vancouver, did you enjoy the warm sunshine? Ahh.

Thought I'd share another lovely home with you, to start off the week. I shot this huge space for Style At Home, for the current issue. Designed by architect Omer Arbel, it's filled with light and all kinds of beautiful details. Here's a peek...

The bedroom overlooks one of my favourite spots in Vancouver - Blood Alley. Intriguing name, isn't it? 

Great use of an antique cabinet. Perfect in the master bathroom. 

The kitchen can open up to this indoor/outdoor patio. 

The "living" wall is filled with strawberry plants. 

Think you could live in a space like this? I think I could. For the whole story, check out the March issue of Style At Home. 

Have a great day!

Back soon,

Holiday Inspiration for Charities

How's your week going? The week is whizzing by and I still haven't bought any Christmas presents. Please tell me I'm not the only one.

Late last year, the editors at Style At Home magazine asked 8 photographers if they would submit a holiday image for this year's December issue. Something they were inspired by during the holidays. All of the images selected would be 8x10, and available for purchase for $100 with proceeds benefiting various charities. I was one of the photographers asked, and I decided to donate the proceeds to The Arthritis Society. I think this is a fantastic idea, and I'm so happy to be part of it. I hope they do it again next year!

We each submitted a few photos and, from my selection, they chose this BW image. My husband and I were in Australia last Christmas, so they do have that Aussie, summery, feel to them.

I'm happy to say, I have sold a few already! I thought I'd offer up the other two images for The Arthritis Society as well. They will be printed on a beautiful, matte, archival paper, and signed. If you are interested in purchasing any of these images, please contact me directly. I would be pleased to take your money, send you a print, and hand over another cheque to The Arthritis Society.

To see the other photographer's images, and the charities they've chosen, check out the December issue of Style At Home.  Have a lovely day! 

Back soon,

A little Christmas for hump day

Happy hump day! How's your week going so far?

I shot this Christmas story last Christmas, for Style at Home, and it's on news stands now. It was such a dark and gloomy day, so my assistant, Karen, and I had to be on our toes. Long exposures and lots of reflecting! Thought I'd share some of the day with you....

Angela Robinson is a Vancouver interior designer, and she produced this story along with Jamie Deck. They created most of the props - love that. The bird's nest advent calendar was a clever idea!

Angela busy at work, attaching the birds nests while the little ladies of the house observe.

A little Italian treat, baked by the homeowner, to keep us going on this long shoot. 

Erin McLaughlin, editor-in-chief of Style At Home, vacuums up bits of nest before we start shooting. 

The kitchen smelled great. Cookies everywhere. Naturally, I was all over it. Angela kept the decoration simple, with a loose garland of cedar and glass ornaments for the window. 

A glimpse at some of the other handmade goodness that was going on for this story. Love the family's name spelled out in a variety of sizes and types of letters, for the front door. 

After a long day, the cookies/props could finally, be eaten. 

Check out the December issue of Style At Home - full of Christmas inspiration. 

Back soon!

Small Space, Fabulous Style

I wanted to share this fantastic space with you. I shot Tamar's apartment, for Style At Home, and I have to say, it's one of my favourites. I could absolutely live here. Tamar Rosenberg, a visual artist and design consultant, has an amazing eye, and her collections and little vignettes are perfect.

Love the needlepoint portrait of Prince Charles, and her collection of red garage sale finds.

A red brick wall with 2 vintage chairs, serve as a fantastic focal point.

I think I need to go and colour code my book shelf. Great grouping of vintage glass on top too!

A very spare and tidy office space. Love that wallpaper. 

Tamar has created a bedroom that is calm and inviting, with a great mix of mid century furniture, and a happy collection of ornaments. I want that chair.

A simple, clean, and modern bathroom. 

A tiny, but well organized kitchen. I would love that portrait. Who is that man? 

I find Tamar's home so inspiring. It's amazing what she's done with just 725 sq ft. What do you like about her home? Let me know!

Back soon! Have a great day.
