Dual Purpose Furniture

Small space living calls for furniture that can be used for one than one function.

Travel can be a challenge… between planning itineraries, organizing transportation, and finding accommodation it takes a lot of prep to get that vacation off the ground. We know travel season is in full swing, having just come back from our design tour in LA and finalizing our tour in Baja (in addition to family vacations!) so we love a good travel tip. But what about an extra travel challenge? Have you ever gone on an extended trip without checked luggage?...

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...

Spring Style

Spring StyleAs Spring is here, it is not only time to change things inside our homes but it is time to put away our winter woolies and break out the tee shirts and lighter wear.

It is quite warm already but we are including outer wear and long sleeves for the chillier days but we think these outfits could morph into summer wear...

Friday Fun: Design Influences

Design InfluencesAs a designer, I know that everything that surrounds us is influential. None of us design in a bubble. It goes without saying that the more you experience the world, the more design will factor in your life. Influences and inspirations can come from a variety of places as you can see below. They can come from architecture, holidays, food, fashion, the environment, nature, and the list goes on.  Sometimes it is hard to determine what came first, the...
