@ Home with Michael Hainey via The Selby...

Once again, The Selby has managed to capture a wonderfully eclectic space...this time Michael Hainey's home has been exposed to interior-voyeurs such as myself, and I could not be happier...Hainey, an artist, writer and editor, sure has a knack for detail and his New York apartment exudes quirky charm...but why talk about it when you can see a sneak peek right here...enjoy...
...creative nooks...
 ...I love creative and surprising ways to organize books and book collections...
 ...details...
...loving the stainless steel shelf in the background ~ simple, functional and elegant all at the same time...
 ...books, books, books...
 ...loving all the details ~ especially the drinking kind...
 ...no need to be a sour puss ~ citrus fruit makes for a great and colourful display especially in mini-bars and kitchens...
 ...reading nook...
 ...work space...
 ...more books...
 ...simplicity...
 ...everything about this space is stunning...
 ...sea of shoes...
 ...wonderful details...
 ...bags, bags...
 ... and more bags...
...boots and Louis...what a combo!
Lovely, isn't it? That's all for this Monday folks...hope everyone has a good beginning to their week and beyond...

Behind the Scenes with Chameleonic...

This past Sunday, I had the lovely opportunity to spend some time on another fashion photo-shoot, which as all of you know always makes me happy...this time the shoot was styled for an editorial spread in a magazine (once it comes out I will post all the details) and styled by one other than my good (and talented) gal-friend, Justyna of Chameleonic...although I am not allowed to divulge too many details (I know how, Mission iImpossible of me!) I will say that it was a blast to hang out with some of my favourite girls and a table full of amazing accessories...I did not bring my regular Nikon with me, but I did manage to snap a few shots with my iPhone, so here they are, some of my favourite moments from the shoot...enjoy...

{Photographer: Joel Bedford, Model: Brenda from MIM, Manicure/Pedicure: Sasha & Katherine, Hair & Make-up: Alex}
 ...Brenda getting ready...and those amazing heels...
...Brenda is wearing pants by Rachel Sin...

...hanging out and shooting...
...Ottawa nightscape...Joel and Justyna testing light...Julie of popchampagne giving some of the jewels a try, Angie of Demu Label and her fabulous "Mouffant"...

...and that's it from me for today, off to get busy on the first chapter of my dissertation which is going slowly but surely...at times like (with as much writing as I have) it is kind of nice that the weather is so crumby, makes me feel less guilty about staying inside all the time...happy Thursday everyone...

Details at Home...

With the weather outside being as cold as it is (I strongly believe that anything below 0C is inhumane) all one wants to do is sit in their warm and cozy abode, snuggle up and drink warm tea (or is this just me?)...because I have been spending a lot of time at home trying to avoid winter and its frigid grasp, I thought I would share some photos of where I have been hiding out...here is a very small sneak peek into our warm and cozy abode...enjoy and stay warm!
