Wear/Where | 1980s cool, 1970s glam

When it comes to foolproof colour combinations, few are as glamourous as black and brass. The 1970s knew it, the 1980s knew it, and now, my friends, we’re getting to know it once again. Sure, it feels understated as an accessory, but boy does it feel bold as part of your decor. Wear: Black loafers with brass […]

Pinstagram | Wrap it up

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Jeans and a tee. A graphic t-shirt designed for Easter Seals’ Woman 2 Warrior (which I’ve worked with many times before) + an even more casual take on the jeans a t-shirt look. Hideaway. Her favourite spot + what […]

Wear/Where | To great lengths

Go long. That’s a sports reference I don’t quite get (something to do with football?) but, as a style and design reference, I get it 100%. And it’s a slam dunk in my books (I know, I know, wrong sport, but you get where I’m going with it). Wear: The Casablancas Maxi Dress by Free People […]

Bookmark | Ste. Marie Design

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web. I am such a creative creep. I love seeing the work behind the work, getting a glimpse into the thought process — and the process process — of people who make beautiful things. Which is why I love Ste. Marie […]

Pinstagram | Pink sofas and red suits

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Seating arrangement. My midcentury Danish chairs that replaced the sofa that used to sit under that window + a blush sofa that could replace anything it wished to. In bloom. My desk looks like spring + so does Rachel de […]

Wear/Where | Metals and Pastels

Add metallics to any old thing and you have instant glamour. Mix in some pastels and you have the most winningest of winning combinations. Wear: Karen Walker One Splash sunglasses. Where: The extraordinarily cool Shugaa Dessert Bar in Bangkok, which is inspired by sugar crystals and, just like sugar itself, something I can’t get enough of.

Home | #IHaveThisThingWithTiles

I’m helping my sister redesign her kitchen — replacing her retro cabinets, extending her counters, figuring out what to do with an awkward space underneath a window, the works. And the sticking point right now is the floor and backsplash because the options are endless (even within a budget) and there’s real potential to do […]

Pinstagram | Party time!

The Anthology’s Pinstagram column marries the dream (Pinterest) and the reality (Kelsey Dundon’s Instagram photos of places and faces in and around Vancouver). Family portrait. Me and my baby in black and white + a cute way to photograph a family. Fashion Meet. The Eco Fashion Week press conference at the Fairmont Waterfront (read my piece on one of their most innovative shows […]

Wear/Where | Peace Out

Give peace a chance. Surround yourself with it; live it, wear it, accessorize your office with it. Wear: An outfit with more personality than you ever thought possible in such a neutral palette (as seen on Crush Cul de Sac). Where: A custom neon sign by Vancouver’s Endeavour Neon (coolest desk accessory I’ve ever seen!). P.S. Metropolette started a […]

Bookmark | DeSmitten Design Blog

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web. I admire minimalism, perhaps because I am not a minimalist. My instincts lean toward more so I respect those who gravitate towards less.  Maybe that’s why I find DeSmitten so refreshing. By Brooklyn-based fashion designer and writer Christina De Smet, it’s crisp, clean […]
