Alt Summit in Palm Springs

Alt Summit in Palm SpringsAs our time in Palm Springs comes to a close I am reflecting back on all we have seen and learned this last week at Alt Summit. Alt Summit is mainly a women’s entrepreneurial/bloggers conference that caught our attention a few years back after Tina took some online Alt courses. For the last several years it has been held in Salt Lake city but this year they changed it up and it was held in Palm Springs. The...

My Year of De-cluttering, Styling, Selling, Downsizing, Moving and Renovating

My Year of De-cluttering, Styling, Selling, Downsizing, Moving and Renovating Holy Cow what a year I have had! I finally feel ready to share how this whole saga went down. As many of you know, Graham and I decided the time was right to downsize. Not just to reduce our house size, but also the size of our debt, our overhead - our whole operation. We sat down one day and realized there was way more to life than what we...

Styling the New Year

2017 is well underway. For many of us the new year is a wake up call to get things done and take on new projects. No matter where you look this time of year, you'll probably see words like 'fresh!', 'revitalize!', 'new!', 'better!'-- even in the design world. Now that the fog of the holiday season has lifted and the magic touches of festive decor are packed away in boxes some living spaces may be looking more hum drum than you remember...

Downsizing with Designers Collective

Downsizing with Design Coaches, Brooke and TinaWe are so pleased with the way our Olympic Village Design Coaching project has turned out.This project is a great example of how “coaching” can work in design.  Our clients had sold their large Dunbar family home and were moving to a much smaller condo in Olympic Village. They were in a dilemma about how to manage all their furniture and how best to go about deciding what would fit and what they would...

Brooke’s European Adventures Continue

Our European adventures continue! We arrived mid afternoon after a near miss of having my luggage stolen on the train-luckily my partner, Randy noticed and confronted the fellow who easily relented but needless to say we were a little more cautious after that. We took the metro to our hotel and the very first sight we saw when getting off the metro was Gaudi’s Battlo house! I couldn’t wait to get started! Getting around Barcelona was fairly straight forward- we...

Brooke’s European Sojourn Part 1

I have been back from my European sojourn for about ten days now and thought I would share a bit about my adventures.A very good friend of mine moved to France last year and so it was a great opportunity for me and another friend to go visit her. First, let me stop here for a moment. She MOVED to FRANCE. A few years ago this friend decided she wanted to learn French so she took a year off of...

IDS Vancouver: A Well of Inspiration

Hello again!This year, September was absolutely full of design events and projects! Conveniently, this means we are immersed in inspiration before the holiday season takes off and we have lots of opportunities to include our favourite design elements in dining tables, new interiors, seasonal decoration, parties, the list goes on! Sometimes the hardest part is refining what you love and translating it from a showroom, magazine page (or blog!) to your own space.A standout on our calendars was the Interior...
