Video: White Cabana + Princess Margaret Lottery

When I toured the Brain Gluckstein-designed Princess Margaret Lottery Oakville Showhome I had the opportunity to share my opinion about the house with the Princess Margaret team. Yesterday the final video was published (thanks team PMLotto!). Have a look:

And while you’re watching videos…have a look at what other bloggers liked about the Oakville showhome: Thalita, Casey, Sarah, & Fatima.

Pop Up! Europe & My Monkey

by Corie

I’m popping in to share a couple of photos from our European vacation last month.

Provence

Monaco

Prince Albert, Princess Charlene, and my husband in Monaco

And just for fun – here’s my little monkey. He is so sweet but why why why does he have to climb absolutely everything? Jordana says we should put him into rockclimbing. How young is too young?

 

Music: Wrestlers by Hot Chip

I’ve had Wrestlers by Hot Chip on repeat for much of this week.

I don’t even know anything about wrestling. But I like the song and I like the matching black & white video. (And I guess I also kind of feel like I’ve been in a wrestling match with my dissertation this month! Ha!)

What have you been listening to these days?

Design: Holaria from Brazil

I was recently asked what inspires me. I feel very fortunate to say that I’m continuously inspired by the places I visit, the new people I meet, and the interactions I have with old friends and family. I am also inspired by the books and magazines that I read, and of course, I find an incredible amount of inspiration online (have you scrolled through my blogroll lately?).

Every so often amazing things find their way into my email inbox! Most recently I received an email all the way from Brazil from Rômulo who was eager to share a video that his company, Telecinese, created to feature the work of Holaria, a porcelain design studio in Brazil.

Isn’t the creative process beautiful? I think this short film does an excellent job of capturing the design process while also making it accessible and informative for the viewer. It is additionally attractive because of its whiteness (obviously)!

Here are some of the products produced by Holaria. Which are you most drawn to?

Holaria – Booh salt & pepper shakers

Holaria – Plissan

Holaria – Pinguim Rei

Holaria – Mathelada

Holaria – Glaciar
