Am still in a post election haze :-( so was nice to have something
cheerful to focus on today. The Interior Designer Tim Lam revealed the
amazing kitchen transformation he just completed as part of the One Room Challenge. He took a dark, basic builder kitchen and transformed it
into an inviting and sophisticated space in 6 short weeks.
See the attached dramatic before and after photos below:
Dark basic builder kitchen
Light, bright inviting space that looks double the size!
My favourite Tim choices:
1. Spraypainting the dark cupboards (colour = Sophistication from Para Paints)
and switching out the hardware = affordable change with big impact
2. Installing a custom streamlined builtin with hidden storage for the microwave
3. The polished nickel wall sconces and floating shelves keeping company with my Big pear print.
Congrats Tim on your fantastic transformation.
Am very happy to have my art in this beautiful new kitchen.
As some of you may know I've purchased a new home with my partner Myles so it is with bittersweet feelings that I announce that I'll be selling my Artscape loft.
be extremely hard for me to leave my beloved Suite 209 and my wonderful neighbours + neighbourhood as I've put my heart and soul
into making my space my own and truly adore The West Queen West neighbourhood.
However I truly adore Myles more (!) and it is time for us to merge
our lives so onward we go!

If you are interested in purchasing my loft you need to:
1. Qualify as an artist (working in any creative field - theatre, music, writing, visual art, dance etc)
know for certain that there are some people already on the list who are
interested in my loft and will have first dibs... but! it doesn't hurt to add your
name to the list if you're interested.
Showings will begin the third week of August with a closing date planned for October or November.
Below are some photos of my loft with brief descriptions.
