Daniel Heath Perivale Collection

We've always loved the whimsical wallpapers and detailed antique mirrors from Daniel Heath's studio based out of London, so it's no surprise that the newest collection is nothing short of amazing. The Perivale Collection includes reclaimed slate tiles, furniture and cushions. Inspired by the Art Deco era (one of our favs!) the collection fuses together both salvaged and new materials to create dynamic pieces. Each item is gorgeously detailed and meticulously constructed. Daniel is known for combining craftsmanship, sustainability and impeccable design and this collection is just that. Take a look at the amazing pieces below!

Art Inspired Interiors

Just like the relationship and inspiration between fashion and interior design we discussed in one of our previous posts, art has the same power and influence. Art can transport you to another place and another time, and we believe the perfect interior can do the same thing. Both mediums use colour, texture and pattern to create a feeling - whether you are wandering the rooms of a museum or creating the spaces in your own home. The brushstrokes of Monet can inspire a calm, feminine space and the colours of Picasso can encourage an eclectic, bold interior. Below we've paired some of our favourite pieces by some of our favourite artists with interiors that reflect the same spirit and feeling of these works of art!

Piet Mondrian, Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow (1930) // Interior

Gustav Klimt, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907) // Interior

Pablo Picasso, Woman with a Book (1932) // Interior

Claude Monet, Water Lilies (1908) // Interior

Jackson Pollock, Yellow Islands (1952) // Interior

Roundup: Patterned Tile

Fabric and artwork are a great and easy way to add pattern and interest to a space, but we have been using another material lately to do that same thing. Patterned tiles are on the rise in the design world, and with all the different options it's easy to find a shape, design and colour story to fit your use! If you are feeling bold use the tiles for a kitchen backsplash, and if you aren't quite ready to take the leap, they work great on a small powder room floor. They can also be paired with a simpler tile to add a special detail in your design. They add so much interest and beauty to a room, and will definitely be the highlight of the space. So take the leap and check out some of our favourite designs and patterns below!

Apparatus Objects

We have been huge fans of Apparatus Studio's lighting for some time now, so when we found out they were coming out with a line of accessories we couldn't wait to see what they had in store. And of course they did not disappoint. Their line of home objects is nothing short to beautiful, sculptural and completely unique - just like their lighting. The new line consists of brass spun incense burners (named the "censor") and incense that burns in phases as the day goes on, interlocking and geometric candle blocks, black and white porcelain table wear and last but not least, a gorgeous leather tote that incorporates their beautiful Strata wallpaper design. If you are not already a fan of Apparatus Studio their new line of objects will definitely make you one!

Take a look and start planning your own Halloween bash!

We love the quirky skull and top had motif on this muslin handmade pillow. It's the perfect way to easily transform your living space for the holiday.

Adorable chalkboard bunting that can be customized to any length. Add a fun saying of your choice, and reuse it for the next holiday! 

Wintergreen Designs (Vancouver, BC)
This teeny tiny trio of handmade pumpkins are made by paper quilling and are just too cute! We like the idea of creating a "Halloween Tree" and using these one of a kind decorations as ornaments! 

William Rae Designs (Edmonton, AB)
Made from reclaimed wood and acrylic paint, this handmade sign is the perfect addition to your fall holiday decor.  Courtney Hanak and her husband Fraser hand make every piece!
