Moving away from monochrome

Monday, February 22, 2016




Last week's work included two Rebecca’s, and two kitchens, which move away from monochrome. Don’t get me wrong! I love an all white kitchen. I just renovated mine to be such. But, I also find two-tone really appealing. I may even paint out my lower cabinets, sometime in the future, to a different colour.



I worked with Rebecca Hay Interior Design to photograph this eye-catching kitchen staring deep blue cabinetry and, my favorite, brass hardware and lighting!  Who else is so in love blue and brass right now?  I also adore the raw wood open shelves, which were actually made by the client’s mother. But, the crème de la crème of the kitchen: her custom designed stools, which echo the brass, have matching yellow cushion tops, and dark wood legs. Lastly, the little bench and hook area super charming too!

The second Rebecca, Rebecca Goodman (who’s website is coming soon!), and second kitchen promote black as the colour of choice for the center island. The contrast is stunning, and works to bring attention to the texture of the herringbone back-splash. I love the brightness of the chrome stools here too.

Interiors with serious EDGE!

Monday, February 1, 2016



Today, is all about TEB Interiors! Teb stands for Terry Edward Briceland, and he is the self-titled “Creative Dictator” of TEB Interiors. They (the other two in the team are Matthew Adams, and Steven Southgate) are a full service interior design firm “know for it’s edgier and sexier design aesthetic”. And they are!!

You get the picture! TEB Interiors is a design firm set above the rest! They are a cocktail mix of fine craftsmanship, extreme creativity, and a syringe full of rock and roll (shaken not stirred). Irreverence is sewn into the fabric of their aesthetic! Terry uses tattoos as therapy. And you are bound to see some skull and crossbones somewhere in the mix.


But they are not all grunge and sharp edges. The attraction of their design comes from the perfect balance of edge and luxury; wild and tamed; rustic and refined!


What also turns me on about these guys is that they hand make custom stuff all the time. From pillows, to chairs, to wall coverings. They sew and they build! Again, the yin and the yang are there in perfect harmony. If they can’t find that right piece to complete a project, they are more likely than not, going to make it, or design it and have it made. That is exactly what happened in the case of the industrial sconces for the project featured below. And they are kick *ss!



I'v known TEB and Terry for about a year now, but we just shot our first photo project together at the end of last year. The results are an outstanding gust of colour and pattern, and texture. Have a look, and Terry blogs too. So check out his story about the Condo  here.
