Spring Clean your walls!

Guys, we made it! It’s well and truly spring. Perhaps some of you are diligent spring cleaners while others are simply spring ‘sprucer-uppers’. A great way to refresh your living space and reimagine stale corners of your home is to introduce a new art piece!

Inspo under foot

If you dress from head to toe, would it be fair to say I love conceptualizing design from the toes on up? Some of the most impactful and colourful design choices are under your feet. From rugs to tiles, your floor is a great way to pull a room together or even inject some worldliness or playfulness (pick your inspiration!).

Living with nourishment

Today I interview the inspiring Cassandra Hope, holistic wellness practitioner. While my version of Interior Environmentalism pertains to décor, art and the plants we surround ourselves with, for Cass she is an interior environmentalist through nourishment. Through health and wellbeing, it almost transposes as interior environmentalism: the green we consume to take care of our bodies.

Art Basel, Miami, Wrap-up!

As the snow begins to come down in earnest, there are many reasons to fantasize about teleporting to Florida. But temperature aside, one of the best reasons to be in Miami in December is Art Basel and the myriad of art fairs and events that occur over the long weekend.

A very merry subtle Christmas

Green and white and all things bright! How fun is Christmas decorating? It's a time to immerse oneself in the festive mood, and for this interior environmentalist an excuse to bring even more greenery indoors!

Macrame Me!

With each changing season I do a little side project for my favourite local shop, Good Neighbour. It's a chance for me to stretch my creative muscles in another direction. With winter knocking at the door I wanted to create something that felt warm, cosy and inviting and that would compliment their ethos and beautiful interior aesthetic ... oh, and not be too Christmassy cliché.

Yves Klein’s Resurgence

This summer as I was working on my latest series, 'Blurred Lines', I drew inspiration from a number of places. Social media, psychology texts, Victorian floriography… Another significant inspiration was the work of artist Yves Klein, which culminated in ‘Blurred Lines III’.

Maman coffee crush

On a resent trip to NYC I was introduced (through a friend) to the delightful Elisa Marshall (and partner Benjamin Sormonte), founders and creators behind Maman Coffee (but Maman is so much more than great coffee!). Let's just say I fell head over heels for them, their coffee, the food and their considered interior style, which truly resonates with my Interior Environmentalist ethos!

Nuit Blanche, Toronto

There’s nothing like chatting about great art. One of the magical evenings in Toronto happens the first Saturday in October, when the city lights up from dusk until dawn to showcase an insane number of art installations. Here are the projects that I found incredibly exciting.

Living Walls

In Situ Plants is a company I discovered at Hermann & Audrey gallery on the weekend. I LOVE their philosophy about “humans’ innate need for affiliation with other living organisms”. For me, I combine that craving for the outdoors with a love of design and voila; I became an Interior Environmentalist. Here is my shot of In Situ’s beautiful installation in the front entrance of Hermann & Audrey gallery, Toronto.
