Keep It Simple Stupid

In the wise words of my old soccer coach: keep it simple stupid (K.I.S.S.). Life often feels so complicated doesn’t it? Sometimes I think that living in the city amplifies that feeling, which is why I am a firm believer that there are times when you just have to GET OUT. Last Saturday, for my friend’s birthday, a group of my girlfriends and I hopped into a car and drove out to Abbotsford for the day.

Stop & Smell the Roses

Last week I was given the opportunity to stay at a dear friend of mine’s cabin in Sechelt. It is a little slice of heaven in the Pacific Northwest and after an extremely busy summer, unplugging in this natural haven was a welcome treat. Life moves slower in Sechelt. Sometimes life seems to move at breakneck speed and us city dwellers are all just trying to keep up.

India and All its Colours

India will teach you about colour. Sometimes designers are afraid of colour or too much colour, but in India everything is vibrant. It is an assault to the senses in every way. Both art and design in India are all about embellishment and holding nothing back. Although I prefer simple and clean design, there is something to be said for holding nothing back and pushing the limits.
