Last weekend was The Vancouver Interior design show, and I was curious to find out what west coast design scene looked like in person. There were loads of events that took place across the city and Address was one of them.

When I first heard about Address - ‘An assembly of designers and makers’ I knew I had to go. The show was started by Kate Duncan a Vancouver based furniture designer who felt like her work didn’t fit into the traditional craft or trade shows. Kate felt like her growing company was too small trade shows but too big for craft shows. Like a real problem solver, she decided to create her own show and invited a bunch of other designers to join her.

The vibe of the show is warm and welcoming you felt as if you were entering a large family gathering filled with beautiful, well-made goods. I highly recommend it! If you would like to find out more about the designers you can visit their site here.

A few months ago my friend Manon Labrosse asked me if was interested in attending a fashion show showcasing local artist in collaboration with Print All Over me at Axeneo 7 I yes immediately. Little did I know how cool the building is and how amazing the event would be! I couldn't believe that I didn't know about this really cool artsy spot! The show consisted of over 15 Ottawa - Gatineau based artist it was so refreshing couldn't put my camera down! I took so many pictures, I will create a two-part blog post. 

Above is the work of Caroline Monnet, Etienne Gelinas & Amd. I particularly loved how the black & white patterns translated on their garments. All the clothing will be for sale at Axeneo 7 for the next few weeks if you're interested in checking them out.

I've been updating the shop with a whole bunch of goodies. Above is the latest  18 X 18 pillow called Chelsea dust in salt. I really like the way the pattern looks in the reverse which I call "salt".

I've also added new print and new sizes to your old favourites :). I've also changed the sizes of my signature square prints to 13 X 13 from 11 X 11 the price has also reflected that change. At first when I designed my prints I wanted them to fix most store bought frames (many Ikea). They have now changed the size of their frames and matte so I have to do the same to accommodate that.
