Gild & Co. featured in Canadian House & Home Magazine

Just back from our short jaunt to Palm Springs and delving into a new week with a store I shot for the latest issue of Canadian House & Home, Gild & Co. Just as their website describes: Curators of vintage and new furniture, home decor and accessories. I couldn't have said it better :-) Bonnie Wilson is the mastermind behind this gem of a store located on the West side of Vancouver and after meeting her, I understood why Gild & Co. is such a success. PASSION! Bonnie exudes this love for every piece of furniture, textile, trinket, mirror, vintage find …… I love how inspired I am with every visit and a matter of fact, I'm due for another one this week. "Lets see, I need fabric and am in the market for a chaise lounge" See you soon B! Gild & Co. Tracey Ayton Photography 2

What I've been up to ....

Welcome to a new week ...... although I'm slightly late and posting on a Tuesday but no matter. I wasn't sure where to begin with this post because I've been up to a lot of things lately ....... Shooting this lovely backyard for the latest issue of Canadian Gardening Magazine was a nice calm shoot..... Until I met Harley, the cutest little lab pup. How can I not resist getting licks from this sweetheart.

Linen fabric is a favourite of mine so when Ellen Walde from le fil rouge asked me to shoot for her, I just about died and went to heaven. Her products are so beautiful.


Once A Tree showcase series is now featuring Victoria McKenney from Enviable Designs. The inspiration for her "Comfortable Sophistication" is a recent trip to Palm Springs. This room epitomizes the vintage glamour that Palm Springs once was. The pastel yellows and blues are stunning. If you have time, I highly recommend stopping by and paying a visit. It really is an inspiring space.

Happy new week! My apologies for not doing a post last week, things have been a little delirious around here with work and the fact that it's summer certainly plays a part. I thought I would share some snaps I did for 18KARAT while shooting their latest catalogue. A big part of my job is taking pictures of beautiful spaces and pretty little details .... (Lucky me) Most times I have very talented people working with me in order to make the scene a beautiful one. In this case, I have Zoe & Jeannine to thank, two very talented girls who worked tirelessly to get the job done. Every time I looked up, they had another pretty scene set up for me to shoot, I was like a kid in a candy store ready to snap away.
