Cool ..... Lights!

Hi everyone, how was your weekend? Mine was pretty busy with setting up for an art exhibition, a couple of shoots, of course some editing and even found some time to do a little salvaging... oh and got in some family too, ...... always needed. As some of you know, we are putting a bathroom upstairs and it's funny because we were looking for sconces but couldn't decide on the perfect pair. We ended up ordering some from Restoration Hardware, but we may just take them back because while I was salvaging, I came across these ......

So I ended up taking them home ..... they need to be rewired and cleaned up but other than that, they are friggin spectacular! Especially because we figured out that we needed ones that pointed down due to the lower ceiling.

I can't wait to show you the bathroom once it's all finished, here's a small peek of the tile work, yet to be grouted. Frankie approved .........

Talking about lighting, Robyn & Heidi from RVN Lighting had their very cool lights hanging over at The Fat Paint Co. I just couldn't resist taking some snaps. They repurpose old bowls, containers, lightbulbs ....... etc. rewire them and turn them into pretty lights. So talented!!!! I got to take home a little lightbulb with Sweet Peas inside ....... Way too cute!!!!!

Just some cool people I know

Just thought I would give you a glimpse into some cool people I've been hanging out with lately :-) ...... My good friend Victoria Lambert and her brother Brad have recently opened up a chalk paint store called The Fat Paint Company.  Since opening their store in New Westminster, they have been bombarded with orders from all over the place and continue to get the attention they deserve with their super cool chalk paint.   If you want to try painting with chalk paint, they offer workshops !!!

Oh how lucky I am to have met Claudine Michaud, the owner of Bioéthique, a boutique spa that specializes in facials using their own vegan & certified organic skincare line from France.  I have had my share of treatments and look forward to many more.  Pick up the latest issue of Montecristo magazine to read more about Claudine and her spa.  I'll be posting more pics from our shoot at Bioéthique in a future post.

Then my talented designer friend Amanda Evans from Twenty One Two Designs Inc. had a showcase event over at Once A Tree Furniture.  Just goes to show that when you give the girl a small space to design a beautiful room, she knocks it out of the park with an incredibly beautiful master bedroom.  It was nice to see all of her friends and family come out to support Amanda at the showcase opening.  Amanda's showcase will be up for viewing at Once A Tree until September ...... I wish I could've taken the entire bedroom home with me!!
