Giveaway | Win a Design Consultation with Marie Joy!

Marie Joy Design

I am an obsessive redecorator. Always have been. And there’s nothing I value more than a second opinion (well, that and a little Pinspiration). So in honour of the upcoming BC Home and Garden Show, we’re giving away a design consultation with Marie Joy Design worth $250!

Marie Joy Designers

The design duo will be like your own personal Apartment Therapy, answering your most burning questions like How do I make my living room seem bigger? How should I light my dining room? Is a kitchen carpet a yay or nay?

The winner will also get four tickets to the BC Home and Garden Show happening February 18 -22 at BC Place (where you’ll be able to bid on my Home Tweet Home birdhouse, benefitting Ronald McDonald House BC).

So let’s make your place amazing! To enter to win email KDundon@TheAnthology.ca with subject: Marie Joy Design. Contest closes Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 12:00 noon PST. Contest open to BC residents only. Good luck!

CONTEST CLOSED: Congratulations, Sarah!

Give | Spreading the Valentine’s Day Love



Sometimes I feel like the only person on the planet who loves Valentine’s Day. And I don’t mean the roses and baby’s breath kind of VDay, I mean the “I Choo Choo Choose You and there’s a picture of a train” kind of Valentine’s Day. It’s so sweet, so cheesy, so full of sugar!


I stopped by CTV Morning Live with a few sappy, sassy, and sexy gifts for the Hallmark Holiday.


I hope you <3 it! Take a look here. Thanks again for having me, CTV!

Bookmark | Bambula

In The Anthology’s Bookmark column we explore some of the most inspiring places on the wild, wild web.


I can’t understand a word of it (and Google Translate isn’t much help: “Next summer, the yard looks like you’ve probably kivemmalle”)…


…but boy, is Bambula a beautiful design blog.


Filled with design trends (house plants!), DIYs (plant hangers!), and beautiful snippets of Finnish family life…


…it makes white walls look dreamy in ways only Scandinavian design blogs can.


So bookmark Bambula already. And bookmark The Anthology while you’re at it.

[Images from Bambula, naturally.]

P.S. Beef up your list of favourite links with The Anthology’s Bookmark picks.

Pinstagram | Holiday Edition

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).


Lights! Glamour! Action! Right before sharing my favourite spring trends on Global Television + a night light of sorts.


Black from head to toe. Before doing a makeover with Metropolis at Metrotown on Global Television + an all-black outfit of a different stripe (which feels very Audrey Hepburn).


That’s a wrap! A bow-tiful ribbon by CANVAS with gift wrap from Papyrus + possibly the cutest way to wrap a present ever.


Santa baby. The closest we came to getting a picture with Santa this year + a vintage Christmas party invitation.


Red and green! Accidental holiday colours behind the scenes at Global Television + a very glamourous red gown.

P.S. There are more photos where these came from so add The Anthology on Facebook and follow @KelseyDundon on Instagram.
