One thing we’ve learned in this business is that having an incredible photographer on your side is equally important as any other trait a designer can have… lucky for us, the super talented (and totally lovely) Melissa Gidney of MG Images is not only a beautiful spirit and great friend – she also made the trek out to our display suite at Morgan Crossing in South Surrey this week to photograph the space. Melissa captured some fabulous shots of the suite, as well as the little details – check out the pictures and let us know what you think! If you are in and around the White Rock area between now and February 20th, head over to the suites (there are 6 in total as part of the BC’s Best Young Designer competition) and see what all the designers have been up to; voting for your favourite (umm, suite 451 please!) takes place at the Morgan Crossing Presentation/ Sales Centre, which is extra conveniently just steps away from our new fave spot for java, Mink Chocolates & Coffee!
We would be remiss if we didn’t give a huge shout out to those that helped us create this space – without the special finds and custom pieces, our suite would definitely not be what it is. Custom drapery fabric in each room was provided by Aftex Products; the painting and wallpapering was professionally installed/ completed by Perfect Line Painting & Construction; the large, hanging wooden display piece in the living room was custom created by JP Timbers; our inspiration piece (the fabulous orange lamp in the living room) as well as other lighting and some stellar display books were found at Space Lab (1847 Main Street, Vancouver – Main + 3rd); other extra awesome treasures were found, as always, at ReFind, which is (conveniently) located directly next door to Space Lab; Attic Treasures on Commercial Drive was the spot we found the super cool bedside table lamps and the stunning bedspread in the Master; other retailers that helped complete this suite were: Vancouver Special, Paboom, The Cross Decor & Design and Nood.
