So here we are ….. another new week and I was thinking about what I have lined up for the next few weeks for my blog posts, then a thought occurred to me to see what you like. It’s pure curiosity on my end but I always like to stay in line with what my readers find interesting. So go ahead, comment below I’d love to hear your thoughts. Have a fantastic week!
While visiting Palm Springs, I couldn’t help but yearn for an era long gone. I knew that coming here I wanted to capture not only its architecture but submerge myself in it’s past to try to emulate what it was when it was created. It seems to hang onto its past, and is determined to save itself from demolition. After seeing what is happening to Vancouver, I need a reprieve and get re inspired by Palm Spring’s iconic architecture.

The Parker Hotel is where we stayed and I have no words to describe how much eye candy this place has.
While in Palm Springs, I couldn’t help but think of my grandmother or “Nani” (she didn’t like to be called a grandma) Nani would take trips down to Palm Springs frequently ….. she was the epitome of a “waspy” character that would go down for a few days to get a tan. Which meant sitting in the sun all day. I don’t believe she ever took a dip in the pool either in fear of “ruining” her hair. She dressed to the nines, wore white gloves when she drove and if you got her mad, heaven help you, she was mean. I have some interesting memories of her and I can’t say she wasn’t on my mind throughout trip.

Just back from our short jaunt to Palm Springs and delving into a new week with a store I shot for the latest issue of Canadian House & Home, Gild & Co. Just as their website describes: Curators of vintage and new furniture, home decor and accessories. I couldn’t have said it better Bonnie Wilson is the mastermind behind this gem of a store located on the West side of Vancouver and after meeting her, I understood why Gild & Co. is such a success. PASSION! Bonnie exudes this love for every piece of furniture, textile, trinket, mirror, vintage find …… I love how inspired I am with every visit and a matter of fact, I’m due for another one this week. ”Lets see, I need fabric and am in the market for a chaise lounge” See you soon B!

Oh and you should see what they have in store for the holiday season!!!!
