Johanna Tagada | artist profile

jj1 jj2 jj3 jj4 jj5 jj6jj8 jj7French artist, Johanna Tagada currently based in Berlin with her fiancé has a beautiful home and studio. I instantly fell in love with her colorful work and space. The Indian portraits are so beautiful and their eclectic home perfectly reflects their work in a most inspiring way. What a beautiful couple and a lovely home that leaves you feeling slightly envious and inspired by their artful life.

Living in a small apartment you’ve got to make use of every square inch and I’ve been doing so by utilizing the high ceilings we’ve got in this place, light filled rooms from the large wood framed windows and the 100-year-old radiators as part of its charm makes the space feel special. Old houses have their quirks but makes it easy to fall in love with, since we’ve decided that we will most likely be spending the next few years in this city I say, lets make it feel like home. Happy Tuesday!

BAILEYS | Herefordshire

mark7 mark8This converted English barn to shop in the countryside is far too beautiful. The treasures the owners have collected from travels and buying trips, are undoubtedly covet able. The neutral tones through-out, worn woods and earthy ceramics are to die for, I would travel to England to visit this shop, thoroughly enjoying every step of wonder it would bring while perusing through. Stores that carry an array of items for the home are always a favourite, I love when you can find kitchen goods, beautiful linens and fabrics, furniture, books and more all in one place, its possibly the best field trip one can take as an adult. Baileys, you have made me giddy this morning.

We are currently sold out of the popular triple raw amethyst necklace and thought it would be great to create a new one, combining wood and beautiful stones. Lets celebrate spring, because if you’re in Calgary you know its been everything but spring around here.

NOR TOMA | Gothenburg

nortoma4 nortoma1 nortoma9 nortoma2nortoma11 nortoma3nortoma5 nortoma7 nortoma6 nortoma10It wouldn’t be too hard convincing me to stay at this nature filled apartment in Gothenburg. A tattoo artist and PR maven live here, and I would too if I could, or at least hang out for a few hours in that comfy looking chair surrounded by cascading plants and animals on the walls. I love eccentric homes that make you feel you are surrounded by many stories, bursting at the seems with oddities and curios. You can read the full interview to find out more for yourself on this charming home and creative couple.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetIt’s been a busy week around here, lots of jewelry making, new tote bag designs in the works plus a full time day job, but who am I kidding its great to be busy, isn’t it? Snow finally came a little yesterday, by little I mean a slight blizzard for most of daylight. On a more exciting note its Friday and there have been many great accomplishments lately, one of them was updating my etsy shop, so go take a peek if you wish. More new things to come so keep checking back and don’t forget to stay in touch via instagram where you’ll find me the most. Have a beautiful weekend, (oh take a peek at our plant wall that is coming along), Ill bring spring to this city anyway I can!
