Decor | Brass Tacks

I have a theory about decor trends: when you can only find something at a second-hand store for $17 or a highly curated online vintage shop for $7000, that trend is on the upswing. Which brings me to black and brass (a combo I’ve long loved) done Hollywood regency style. I found a high gloss black cabinet at […]

Pinstagram | So. Much. Denim.

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). Double denim. The perfect waiting-for-ice-cream outfit + the perfect doing-anything outfit. Grab a seat. My kid making herself at home at le Marche St. George + bar stools I’d love to make myself at home on. Day dreaming. Baby and the beast + another baby with […]

Design | Modern Architecture Home Tour

I love my house. I’ve put a lot of love and (hired) labour into it over the years. But there’s a part of me that wants to tear it all down and build the kind of home you’d find featured in Dwell. Or, say, the Vancouver Modern Architecture and Design Society. Their fourth-annual tour takes place this […]

Wear/Where | Mix and match

There’s something magic about pulling together a look that feels a bit off-kilter, yet wouldn’t-change-a-thing perfect. Bonus points when it looks so, so comfortable. In this case, a low-key take on blush and merlot makes the leap from street style to striking living room. Wear: Sara Escudero of Collage Vintage on Who What Wear. Where: Vanessa Boz’s London home in Milk Magazine.

Bookmark | Julie Ansiau Photography

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web. Portrait photography strikes me as being very hard. I don’t do it much (unless you count shoving a camera in my babies’ faces) but I imagine it’d be a real challenge to capture your subject in a natural, expressive […]

Pinstagram | White dresses and watermelon onesies

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). Wear white. Trying on bridesmaids dresses at Park & Fifth Co. + a dress that would be like wearing a cloud. Baby pink. Learning to crawl (on the kitchen floor, no less) + the sweetest, summery-est outfit ever. […]

Diary | Roaming the Streets with Surreal Theatre

The last show I saw in a theatre was Raffi (ha!). It had been a while since I’d been to the theatre theatre. Until last night, when I went to the theatre, it just wasn’t, you know…in a theatre. Surreal Theatre is set in the streets of Gastown, a favourite neighbourhood among Vancouverites and tourists alike. Although the […]

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 […]
