I stumbled upon talented Calligraphy Artist TIFFANY ADAIR at a marketing event for a real estate developer in Vancouver. Praising her work at the event she said my wish was her command. She would inscribe any words I wished onto a round organic made paper, which would be my gift! We were nearing the end of the year and what could be better than sharing my gratitude. Her pen and ink soon flowed gracefully and this was the result! I thanked her, placed the round paper upon a black backdrop at home, feeling blessed and took this photo! Thank you Tiffany! You can make life glow like the moon!
In my recent project I decided to play with a pop of colours for my client's small entertaining space in the house. I haven't created some thing this vibrant in a while. Here it is, featuring select collections from Bob Mitchell and William Gold in custom fabrics. The large painting in the adjoining area is a commission from Hans-Guenter Hoeffken in Berlin, Germany, titled - Colourful Pond!
2016 saw the manifestation of a custom made sofa taken from the initial drawing concept to 60 days in the making at a custom sofa and upholstery workshop. A very East-West style not ordinarily found in most furniture showrooms. The design drew inspiration from Nicholas Purcell and the commission went into production at Fabulous Furnishing’s workshop after deciding on the ideal measurements, wood finish and selecting a durable custom fabric. Several progress visits later here is the final piece viewed from concept drawing to finished product. Specifying custom is definitely worth waiting for!
The Annual Home and Design Show in Vancouver’s Convention Center was where all the excitement was in town from Oct 22nd - 25th. It was an opportunity to play with cinnamon copper, aqua blue and white with a touch of Mid-Century to stage my client’s booth - Safe Pacific Inc. A 10 x 10 foot space, it heralded the warmth and cozy feel of a small space amongst its big neighbours at the show! A great weekend always, allowing you to engage with the Vancouver Design Community in one place!
