Details of our LA Design Crawl Day 2

The fun continues as we share the details of our LA Design Crawl, Day 2.On day two we started the day with a choice between two California extremes; a leisurely coffee by the pool or a 7:00 am spin class at the famous SoulCycle. Echoing solid endorsements from Oprah, our own design crawler and spin cycle instructor Francine was keen to have all of us mount up. Great music combined with a darkened interior allowed us to focus inward for a...

Spring Garden Planter Design

It’s interesting to me because a lot of how we decorate or design for the home can be carried out in the garden as well. We...

I would go in for a consult and talk to...

Downsizing: My Personal Experience

We had been in our house for about 15 years and had many fond memories of raising the kids, family gatherings, Christmases, Easter egg hunts, good neighbours who became good friends, and many a home project undertaken. We moved in when our oldest was in grade two, our middle...
