Dual Purpose Furniture

Small space living calls for furniture that can be used for one than one function. These can be pieces that fold, morph, stack, rotate, expand, or collapse to make the most of the square-footage you're working with. Whether you are downsizing, starting out, or have a funky floor-plan, being able to efficiently use the space you have is a serious skill!  Below we scoured our favourite sources of internet inspiration for a few examples on creative ways to make use...

Architectural Open House Tour in the Silver Lake Hills

The design highlight of our recent trip to Los Angeles was a self-discovery architectural tour of Silver Lake. I had no idea Silver Lake was such a hot bed of architectural activity. So many of the houses, mid century modern in style, were designed by very well known architects, including Rudolf Schindler, Richard Neutra, John Lautner, and Frank Lloyd Wright to name a few.The icing on the cake was a stop at an open house perched in the hills overlooking...

From the Archives: Design Concept Board (aka: The Fun Stuff!)

Often, it is difficult to determine how to start a big design project. After years of experience and many, many, many projects-- we always come back to one of the best, and in our opinion the most fun, strategy: a concept board. Whether you're thinking about working with us for eDesign, starting a small interior design project on your own, or just curious about your design style-- creating a concept board is a no-commitment experiment that always ALWAYS helps us...

From the Archives: DIY Ombré Tea Towels

We have been looking back at our archives recently and decided to revisit our Happy Kitchen Project from 2015!

Below we re-posted our DIY for Ombré Tea Towels. It's a great way to add some colour and fun into the kitchen and a great project to do...

The Palette Project #5: Confederation Bridge

This is another edition of the palette project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. Canada is huge-- there's no avoiding that. Connecting place to place can sometimes be a challenge. PEI, nestled off the mainland of Canada in the Maritimes, used to only be accessible by ferry until 1997. The Confederation Bridge replaced the ferries and covers the entire 12.9km span of the Northumberland Strait that flows between PEI and New Brunswick. Crossing the...

Ottawa, ON is an interesting collection of government buildings, embassies, incredible art galleries, a lively public market, and a mix of architectural styles (just to name a few things...

The Palette Project #3: Alexander Keith’s

This is another edition of our Palette Project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. Beer has long been a part of the Canadian identity, going back to the first European settlers. Nestled near the waterfront in Halifax, NS is the original location of Alexander Keith's that was originally built in 1820. Over time this handsome brick building has been transformed into a flagship store and historic pub (don't worry it still brews some great...

The Palette Project #2: Niagara Falls

This is another edition of our Palette Project-- we're exploring inspiring places in Canada and the colours that make them beautiful. We're going cross country this week, looking at the infamous and powerful Niagara Falls. Curving through the Canada/USA boarder, the Horseshoe falls is the largest of the three waterfalls that spill down the end of the Niagara Gorge.  It is one of those natural wonders that you hear before you see it-- the entire town of Niagara Falls is filled...

To frame or not to frame…

What's in a frame? We're seeing a lot of clients choosing to incorporate art in their spaces and we often get questions about the best way to display paintings, photographs, and prints. We love that more and more people want to include original works in their decor-- no matter if it's a drawing by your child when they were in 3rd grade or a Group of 7 masterpiece, art is a great way to showcase personality and taste. We previously wrote...
