Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. As some of you may know, my favourite colour is white ..... I find it so crisp, clean with no obstacles. It's like starting new when it comes to a white space, any accessories you add to white god well with it. So in this case when I shot Tracy Stonehouse's kitchen for the latest issue of Style At Home the White issue ..... Erin McLaughlin (Editor In Chief of Style At Home) came into town to shoot which was super fun. The different purples from hydrangeas and blueberries are so scrumptious!!!! I just happened to be wearing a purple checked shirt that day so how convenient it was to pass over the shirt over to Tracy to wear for her picture. The kitchen was designed by Victoria McKenney from Enviable Designs, the cabinet work done by Eyco Building Group.
Not sure about you, but once in awhile you see a house that stops you in your tracks. The moment I set eyes on this home, I fell in love. It was a case of "nothing is going to stop me from taking pictures of this house" I HAD to get to know the owner of this spectacular structure.... Turns out that there was a connection and it also turns out that Laurie (homeowner) is the sweetest person EVER ! She has an excellent eye for design and lucky for me, Laurie also shares the same devotion to black and white decor as I do! Thank you Laurie and Randy for allowing me to come into your home to photograph it. You can see the feature in the latest Style At Home I hope you enjoy this home as much as I did shooting it ~ .......p.s. Laurie is now a great friend :-)
I absolutely love that when building the home ~ YES! it's a new build, Laurie and Randy reclaimed architectural details from older homes to keep the consistency of what a Craftsman bungalow would boast from the early 1900's. That my friends, is a beautiful thing. The amount of labour that went into even just fitting all of the doors was a miracle. If you know anything about building, this would probably not be taken on by many builders.
Hello new week! My apologies for not posting ...... I finally had to succumb to work and let go of blogging for a couple of weeks but had a chance to stop and enjoy what was going on around me ..... the gorgeous colours in the trees are amazing!!! Here in Vancouver, we have had the most beautiful weather, a perfect recipe for bright beautiful leaves .
A few of my photos made it into the Province AND the Globe And Mail this past weekend for an article about two lovely Tudor homes on the west side that are slated for demolition. These houses really tug at my heart and hopefully this article will help spread the word about what is happening to our heritage homes.
