...wedding gift we gave to each other.   Photo of Globe and Mail article in Design Trends section, April 9. 2011 – Jane’s inspiration for her new space to yet be defined.

This particular blog is going out to Kathy, my dear sister-in-law, who recently commissioned the Brothers to create a chandelier for her cottage near North Bay, Ontario, as well as a side table.  (Note to my jealous heart:  be happy for her!).     If you wish to sign up to receive this blog, ease your cursor to the left of your screen, where it says: Get Updates!  Would lov...

She had managed to pick out light fixtures, flooring, the right white paint and to design her kitchen and choose the right appliances, but now it was time to fill in the rest of her space and she didn’t know where to start.
