one more quiet detail before our big reveal of the @article space this week ✨

more than anything I believe in the power of community + the boundless potential of collaboration when it comes to my studio practice. I love to come up with big ideas of how an environment should look or feel and need to find the right team to help bring those dreams to life
.
for the @article space we collaborated with the super talented @newformatstudio to design custom metal micro-environments that would also act as sculptural elements in the space. after working in sketchup, looking at samples and models for months it is a dream come true to see these sculptural elements installed ✨

library goals 🙌🏼 I am passionate about many parts of my work but curating a library for the spaces we design is one of my true pleasures
.
I probably spend too much time thinking about this level of detail - for me it’s about the content of a publication but also how it shows up in the world - what does the paper feel like, what imagery or palette was selected for the cover, what is the graphic concept + what style is typography. nerdy I know, but so much fun :)

all the pieces are starting to come together at the new atrium we designed for @article. can’t get over how lush + gorgeous these palms are 🙌🏼

day one of our installation for @article! can’t wait to share the process of how our team of collaborators will transform this blank canvas into a gallery space ✨

overwhelmed by a sense of accomplishment after crushing my goal of completing the @rbcgranfondo today ✨
.
not going to lie, the experience was incredibly challenging. I had a crash early on in the race due to slick road conditions from rain, and sat on the side of the highway crying but I got back on my bike + finished all 122km of the race. couldn’t have done it without the unconditional support + inspiration from my dad Jim who rode the whole race by my side + my coach @quebecwhiskeykilo who had confidence in me from day one
.
although I’m new to the road cycling game I can honestly say I’m hooked. I am so grateful for the sense of focus + competition that has come from my commitment. totally want to start a bike group now, who’s in?!

I’m always on the lookout for new artists to collaborate with on our interiors. are you an artist? would love to connect ✨

this week has been full of all the not so glamorous jobs that go hand in hand with being an entrepreneur. accounting is definitely at the top of that list for me, however I usually come through the process feeling more grounded in my business which is ultimately a win. grateful for an amazing support network of fellow entrepreneurs + consultants to ask questions when I don’t know the answer
.
to all the entrepreneurs out there - may we embrace all the parts of our work (even the parts we don’t love) + be open to asking for help when we need it ✨
