This past August I was THRILLED to have been selected by Mark Challen of Canadian House & Home to be the feature designer in a two page Sico Paint advertorial the magazine was producing, this would be the the sixth and final shoot of the series. I was asked to design a dining room vignette featuring a few of "My Favorite Things" and showcasing a Sico colour palette, needless to say I was pretty hyped about the concept especially because dining and entertaining is already one of my favorite things! I feel so fortunate to have been given this opportunity, it was truly an amazing experience and such a pleasure to work with Mark Challen and Peter Paquette at H&H and the super talented photographer Mark Burstyn, who I mentioned not too long ago here.
The above pic is a snap I took on my Iphone the day of the shoot. I'll do a behind the scenes post sometime in the near future describing how it all came together so quickly, including some speedy help from Elevator Digital in framing up my personal photography - thank you Kevin! For now you can check out the entire spread in the current November issue of Canadian House & Home on stands, and on-line now! Hope you enjoy, let me know what you think!
Canadian House & Home, November 2010
Visit the House & Home website for your chance to win these stunning organic shaped bowls that we used in this shoot. I absolutely adore these and think they're so versatile, used individually or grouped together. If you check out Suzanne Dimma's home featured in the November issue you'll spot these in several different places around her house too...
