I can’t believe I haven’t even mentioned yet that my house is in this month’s Canadian House & Home magazine (well, technically the April issue).
It was a total treat to get to work with everyone that I did at the magazine. The amount of detail and care that goes into putting an issue together is incredible. I’ve always loved magazines and books and publishing – you name it – but I have a total new found respect for it all.
So, these ain’t my interior shots by any means, but here’s a little homage to printed matter!
Have a great weekend.

For my recent birthday, my husband bought me an e-reader; a great gift, considering I love gadgets and love to read. But I have to admit, there’s a part of it that makes me sort of uncomfortable. I just need to get my head around the idea that these readers won’t completely replace books. For now:)
Whatever their fate, I certainly hope books don’t disappear for decorating purposes. There’s nothing like a good stack of books to fill a space.

I not only have a thing for books, but also the shelves on which they are kept. I practically salivate when I see a well-lined bookshelf.
We’ve decided to build a small library / office in our new home for this very reason. Here are a few looks I admire:
