I was approached by Chairish, a curator-approved online marketplace for vintage and used furniture, to put together a “shabby chic” design for a room of my choice! Since my favourite room to decorate is the living room, I started out on their site by selecting a few different rugs and sofas. I’m always a fan of mixing different styles, so I incorporated that into the design and put my own spin on shabby chic style. One of my favourite looks is mixing more traditional elements like the Louis accent chair with a sleek and modern marble coffee table. The key to….
We’re getting to the final stages of our project downtown, so I’ve been sourcing accessories which is an absolute favourite part of my job. The styling and décor at the end can really make or break a space. I find it can also really steer a design in the right or wrong direction so it has to be really carefully put together. Here are some options that we’re looking at: Director floor lamp, Moe’s Furniture Cylinder vase, CB2 Missoni Giacomo towels, Provide Home Jesse Leake “Morocco II” print, Pottery Barn Print, Left Bank Art Grantorino chair, Poltrona Frau….
Hello and welcome to the new and improved blog of Twenty One Two Designs Inc.! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but I’ve missed the creative outlet that blogging gives me and I really enjoy being able to give updates on various projects that I’m working on. So what’s been happening lately? This past spring and summer has proven to be quite busy with exciting projects in the works. Currently, I’m working on a few condos in downtown Vancouver, a new custom home in Burnaby, just finished up another Bombay Brow Bar in Park Royal and I’m also getting ready for….
I’m very excited to be getting back into the world of blogging! Over the years, this blog was a place I could connect with other bloggers, designers, brands and friends, but over time it was a little difficult to keep up. I’ve noticed a shift in the blogging world since I’ve taken a break- it’s grown immensely and I hope that I can carve out a small corner for myself and my design company, Twenty One Two Designs Inc. Over the next few weeks I’ll be slowly but surely making myself back at home here and I hope you….
The Georgie Awards are happening this Friday here in Vancouver. The Awards recognize premiere building provincially in B.C. as well as Canada and I’m thrilled to be a finalist for Best Interior Design of a Custom Residence 2014 for Midori Uchi. The builder, Naikoon Contracting, is known for their beautiful sustainable homes and this one is no exception. Features like 6500 board feet of reclaimed timber recycled from an old warehouse blocks away which make up the beams and flooring and a rammed earth wall in the living room all contribute to the LEED Platinum, R2000 and Built Green Certifications. I’m….
This stunning home is by one of my favourites, CWB Architects. I believe I have posted about them before, but the homes they create are so inspiring and well thought out. I love that their spaces all look “complete”, with the attention to detail being spot on. This home is called “Hudson Hideaway” which is completely suiting for this stunner. May I move in?

The Cross is an absolute favourite store of mine here in Vancouver. It’s always high on my radar when searching for inspiration or sourcing those finishing touches for a project. They just underwent a major expansion at their current location and re-opened this past Saturday. I had to check it out right away and fell in love all over again…. it is breathtaking! If you’re in the area go check it out! It’s just stunning! They’re located at 1198 Homer Street in Yaletown, Vancouver. Amanda Images via my Instagram…..Follow me here
Hello! It’s been awhile, but it’s time to come back to blogging! I took a much needed break from the blogging world only to miss it like crazy. Things have been very busy with work and I’m working on some really exciting residential projects that I can’t wait to share more about! But for now, here’s a quick Twenty One Two update……. In early August, I went to Vegas and got to experience the most incredible spa I have ever seen at the Encore. I was walking around with my jaw dropped. The attention to detail was just out of this….
Here are the pictures of my showcase reveal! The concept behind my showcase design is comfortable luxury. Great design is all in the details. By paying close attention to the details, I was able to design this bedroom showcase at Once A tree Furniture that exudes this concept: luxury can be comfortable. There are little touches in this room that add to that sense of luxury like the Grasscloth wallpaper, the sateen bedding and the accents of gold. Yet the layered rugs, cozy chairs and fireplace really make this space comfortable and approachable. Mixing textures is always key to creating….
