Travel | I’m officially a Honolulunatic

I never had much interest in Honolulu. Hawaii as a whole, yes – I first visited the state when I went on a three-week-long scuba diving/marine biology field trip to Maui while I was in high school. We camped in huts on the beach, dove with eels at night and shook scorpions out of our […]

Giveaway | BC Home + Garden Show, Tiffany Pratt Edition

This can be beautiful! It’s a mantra worth adopting, yes, but it’s also the title of designer Tiffany Pratt’s debut book. She’s a headlining presenter at the BC Home + Garden Show this weekend and I figure we could all use a little more colour in our lives so we’ve teamed up for a brand new giveaway. […]

Decor | Do you believe in furniture fate?

Do you think it’s possible to conjure a thrifted find? Like, if you pray to the gods of ’80s furniture often enough, do you think they actually answer? It wasn’t long ago I posted about this brass mirror from CB2 (which is also a shelf, but let’s ignore those details for a moment). And now, at a Ukrainian church […]

Pinstagram | Gallery Cafes

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). Strike a pose. One of my recent trend segments + an outfit I’d pose all day in. Cafe quality. A beautiful spot to meet a colleague-turned-friend-turned-client for lunch + some cafe vibes you could incorporate into your own home. Reflections. A gorgeous […]

Style | Bundle Up, Minus the Bulk

Baby, it’s cold outside. How many posts this time of year start like that? A million! Give or take. But seriously, even in Vancouver (where it’s usually mild and rainy) it’s c-o-l-d out there. So you want to bundle up in a million layers but still want to look like a million bucks? Well then, my […]

The Style Set | Sonia Beeksma

There is an art to dressing for television. An outfit that looks incredible in real life — like say, beautiful billowy things or unconventional silhouettes — can look just plain odd when translated through the funhouse mirror that is your TV screen. Which means dressing for work is a challenge when your office is a television studio. […]

Wear It Well | When It Rains

When Kate Middleton (or whatever you want to call her) was in town, the forecast called for rain during a good portion of the royal tour. Welcome to the Wet Coast, Cambridges! I would argue dressing well for the rain — like, true West Coast rain — is harder than dressing for any other type of weather. […]

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 […]

Style | Back to high school!

I loved school. I miss school. Everything about it — the new supplies, the locker decorations, the slurpees I used to get on my walk home; I look back on all of it so fondly. Then there’s the new wardrobe. I don’t remember any of my first-day-back looks, but I distinctly remember a silver headband I wore for […]
