Designer Profile | Paul Lavoie ID

The team at Calgary-based Paul Lavoie Interior Design is headed by principal designer Paul Lavoie, and senior designer Martine Ast. Their work is graphic and visually stunning, and what I was personally attracted to was the use and focus on fabulous artwork in each space. Here's a little taste:

Quite bold and graphically pleasing, and I love that the artwork is placed to take center-stage in many of these fabulous places. To see more from Paul and his team, visit their portfolio here.

Profile | Burns & Beyerl Architects

Hello everyone! I'm back after a wee little break, in which time we moved out of our little rancher, temporarily moved into my parents basement (thank God for parents!), and have started to tear up the insides of our new home reno project! Can't wait to share more with you, I'll have the full "BEFORE" home tour up very soon :)

For today, some inspiration as I've been hunting and stalking websites for project ideas. I came across award-winning Chicago-based Residential Architectural firm Burns & Beyerl, and fell in love with the fabulous details of their exteriors, their interior millwork, and overall high-end finishes. After all, the design is in the details!

If these spaces are your style you will definitely want to see more from Burns & Beyerl; hop over to their full portfolio here.

Have a great start to your week!

The home of Chicago-based interior designer Kristin Kerr Luber is chic, restrained, and refreshing. I've followed Kristin's lovely blog Simply Smitten for years, and it's been exciting to watch her career blossom. Here's a look and her beautiful apartment:

I adore her Louis-style dining chairs and that amazing tufted headboard! What was your favorite element in the space? To see more from Kristin Kerr hop over to her portfolio here.

BlogPodium 2015 heads to Vancouver

Have you heard the news? Last week it was announced that BlogPodium, a Toronto-based top-notch blogger conference, is headed my way!! I had the pleasure of attending in 2012, but this time I am so excited to attend this conference in my own fabulous city. I learned so much about the business of blogging; everything from how to utilize social media platforms to your advantage, how to connect with brands interested in working with bloggers, to how to effectively monetize your blog. Local bloggers, I encourage you to pencil this fantastic and educational event into your calendar.

BlogPodium 2015 will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at the beautiful Pan Pacific Hotel Vancouver. This year will feature a handmade market, more lifestyle content, and other developments to be announced in the coming months.

If you have a great idea for content or collaboration please email your thoughts to If your living in this beautiful city I call home, I hope to see you at this years' event!
