send me your photos!

Hey everyone - sorry for the blogging hiatus. I'm back now and ready to start showcasing Ottawa interiors! (Okay, I won't say no to interiors from other parts of the world, but my emphasis is going to be Ottawa homes). So...that said, I have a few friends who are going to be receiving phone calls from me with requests to photo-document their living spaces and post them online for all to see, but the handful of apartments I already have in mind are only the tip of the Ottawa treasure-chest iceberg, SO, if you live in Ottawa and are pretty stoked about how you've developed and decorated your living space, send me some pics and a bit of your 'story' cause I'd love to blog about you and your space!

I'll be waiting at!

dinner jacket looks inside

Dinner Jacket is a new(ish) online fashion magazine in Ottawa that has had a pretty impressive start up. If the rumors are true (and I heard them from an inside source), the mag will soon be available in print copies as well which is just fantastic. The online version is beautiful, so I can only imagine how pretty it would be in a hands-on glossy. Besides fashion, the magazine touches on other creative endeavors which, in their november issue, included the interior dwelling details of an ottawa local (although rumor has it, this ottawa native just relocated to Montreal). Anyways, enough of me trying to sound like I have the inside scoop on everything. Just thought you all might enjoy reading this article and seeing the photos of Jesse's place inside this great new mag.

Which got me to thinking...I was perusing some Ottawa blogs today and thinking about how maybe I should emphasize Ottawa a little more on this blog...which made me think that maybe I should start showcasing the interior abodes of Ottawa residents. Lord knows there are some fantastic old apartments in this city and I'm sure more than a few of them are filled with proud citizens who have just as much character, if not moreso, than their century-old museum-quality flats.

What do you think? Is there any interest in Ottawa interiors? (and there I go - doing what I always swore I wouldn't - inviting comments, making the reader feel ackward or guilty if they don't comment and making me feel lame if nobody comment!).

PS - I'm thinking about starting up another Ottawa-focused blog. Can you guess what the topic's going to be? (there, I did it again).


I totally love this blue bike - I want it! Seriously loving this cycle blog - it's become one of my favorite daily blog stops.

seriously modern tubs

Check them all out here: I really like the one above (althought not so sure about the tv(?) screen), but most of them are even more modern and space-agey looking. Pretty cool.
