Baja Photography & Design Retreat: Colour, Architecture, Culture, Design & More

The best part is… you can join us.A Photography Retreat and Design Tour is exactly that— part exotic experience and part creative growth. Between gallery tours,...

Takashi Murakami: Entering another world

The city is a blanket of white this week (where DID that snow come from?). In times like these, we all need a little extra colour in our lives. Lucky for us in Vancouver we have the Vancouver Art Gallery's exhibition of Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats It's Own Leg. And wow did we get a little extra colour. It's the first Canadian retrospective of the Japanese artist's work and it spans his entire career-- from his student days studying classic Japanese...

The Palette Project #23: Parking Lot at Sunrise

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. This week, we're looking at something a little different: a parking lot. No, it's not on a heritage building list or is otherwise notable for its location, in fact it is a Tim Hortons just outside of Saint John, NB (pretty Canadian right?). What we were drawn to from this inspiration photo was not the place, but the time of...

The Palette Project #22: The Wharf

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. We're back in the Maritimes this week-- visiting the community of Malpeque, PEI. Nestled between two natural bays and Cabot Beach Provincial Park, this area of PEI is known for it's delicious oysters and seemingly endless coastline. After exploring the area (it's hard to narrow down options for inspiration!), we came across this row of buildings lining the marina. On...

The Palette Project #21: Sunshine Meadows

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. Landscape knows no boarders. This week we turn to the mountainous region between the BC-AB divide and a beautiful alpine meadow. There are no garden roses and decorative grasses up here, everything is naturally wild. Instead of looking to the larger-than-life views, we crouch down and focus our gaze on something smaller. Our inspiration this week is found in the...

The Palette Project #20: Maligne Lake

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. This week we travel to the heart of the Rocky Mountains to Maligne Lake. Nestled in the Queen Elizabeth Ranges, it reaches over 22km long-- providing breathtaking vistas of both the lake and the seemingly endless mountain ranges. Classic Canadian mountains at their best! Our inspiration photo was taken from the Bald Hills hiking trail, looking along the lake. Not...
