Guys! I’m baaaack! It’s been a really busy time around the studio lately and I totally caved in to Pinterest recently on the social media front (feel free to follow me, by the way). We’ve been travelling a bit too - I stopped by the New York International Gift Fair in NYC in January to see what it might be to show there, as well as our annual trip to Arizona with my dad.
Also, Jim and I have started making plans to build an infill house in the character-filled McCauley area of Edmonton within the next few years. Naturally I am looking at a lot of contemporary modernist architecture and you probably shouldn’t even get me started on furnishings. In between scouring everywhere from Blu Dot to my local thrift stores, I stumbled across these jawdropping ceramic chandeliers from LightTexture. It’s a collab between an architect, a lighting designer and a ceramic artist, creating unique designer lamps, lights and chandeliers. I say WOW. We’ve been aiming for building a cheap, well built house but something from LightTexture might be the one splurge!
Coming soon: photos from my recent trip to Arizona. I promise you cactuses and of course, COLOUR!
It’s good to be back. xo! -vikki

As the years go on, I am beginning to suspect that my never-ending love affair with a particular shade of bright red-orange will never die. Take, for example, these Bend metal chairs. The Lucy, especially, has a lovely structure and perfect decorative simplicity - I love it in white, I love it in black, but make it that perfect hot red-orange and I’m this close to spending my savings on four of them for my kitchen table. This. Close.

I’m sure you’ve seen The Selby? Just a lovely tour of some of the truly eclectic homes of creative types all shot by Todd Selby. I particularly love his eye for small details that make up a person, and the fact that the interiors (for the most part) are joyfully messy. I feel like I am looking at interiors as self-portraits, which is wonderfully telling. Enjoy!
