Inspired | Paul Barbera

Posted By:Celine
I've spent many a time wishing I had the skills of a painter or artist and yearning for the allure of a creative life, and now I find myself realizing that dream of in the form of the creative process behind Pure Green Magazine. I often dream about the perfect creative space, which is perhaps why, when I came across Where They Create, a new book of photography by Paul Barbera (with text by Alexandra Onderwater) featuring the spaces and studios of creative people, I became instantly intrigued. The sequence shown here is the home/studio of Jade Sarita Arnott of the fashion label Arnsdorf. Her spaces are full of vintage and repurposed items and also the bits and bobs that provide a small window into the process of her work. It surely sets the mind wandering... Read More

It's still winter out and I'm a little chilly, so I thought it would be a great day to post this delectable and rustic mushroom soup with you as this week's best of Pure Green, pulled from the Organic Kitchen recipe archives. It's a rustic and textured soup that eats like a meal. Enjoy it with some fresh crusty bread, a rich soft cheese and an extra little glass of wine on the side. Read More

We haven't really been talking Valentine's Day here on Pure Green, but when I came across Clare Day yesterday I couldn't help but share her work with you and it is rather fitting that it's February 14. Clare lives in Victoria, BC where her love of gardening has literally blossomed into a fabulous floral design studio. Even better is that the studio is located on her organic produce farm, Red Damsel Farm where many of the flowers she works with are grown right in her own backyard. Read More

Home | Stacking Green

Posted By:Celine
Saigon is not a name you often hear when talking architecture and cutting edge design. The most densely populated city in the world, Saigon has been fighting the monotony of furious urban sprawl as of late and the architect on this project, Vo Trong Nghia Co., wanted to create something radically different but that still had some of the character of traditional Saigon— "...we intended this house to inspire people to re-define and re-increase the greenery as the character of this city. “Stacking Green” is just one small house, but it is generated from the context of Saigon."

Truly this doesn't need much introduction. It's a stunning reminder of the beauty found in nature and exactly the type of thing that fuels my passion to preserve and to appreciate. We Were Wanderers is an ode to the incredible flora and fauna of Malaysia –directed by James Griffiths, the video is narrated to excerpts from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, published in 1899.

Today we're sharing the Paris home of Virginie Denny and Alfonso Vallès, shot by Petra Bindel. The most beautiful shades of gray are so calming yet the subtle hints of wood tones and colour add warmth and welcome. It feels moody and wonderfully quiet, like soft winter snow, yet easy to imagine freshened up with added greenery and flowers for spring and summer. Read More

I couldn't resist sharing this wonderful video from Chez Snips, a lovely little hair studio in Montréal - owned and operated by stylist Nadyne, the studio has the most lovely personable feel.

It will never, ever get old seeing Pure Green out there in the world, especially in such a lovely place as this!! Read More

In my opinion, books should have pride of place in any home. At my house they are stacked nearly everywhere. I have probably 5 on the go at all times. Speaking of which, if you are looking for something new to add to your own personal library, I have been meaning to recommend this one to you for a long time... Read More
