After admiring Orling & Wu in the pages of several of my favourite design magazines and hearing such wonderful things about it, it was quite a delight to send them their first shipment of Pure Green!! Orling & Wu is known for their impeccable styling and diverse assortment of gifts, housewares, dishes, fabrics and so much more, all nestled and displayed in a beautiful setting (with that trademark wallpaper!). If you find yourself in old historical Gastown, Vancouver, stop in to 28 Water Street for your copy of Pure Green and get lost in the store while you're at it! Read More

We recently made this dish again for a dinner party and I was reminded at how good it was! The beetcakes are literally exploding with flavour. The slight bitterness of the beets pairs delightfully with blue cheese and is pleasantly finished with the jalepeno cream. (Recipe download available.) Read More

I get really excited when every few months I remember to check Jessica Helgerson's site, the designer whom holds highest honour in Pure Green's hall of eco design fame. I'm thrilled when I discover something new to admire, dream about and subsequently share here with you. Jessica and her team exemplify the Pure Green mantra of Green with Style, creatively incorporating creative re-use, green and non-toxic finishes. This house is an extra special treat because it's where Jessica and her family call home. Read More

Love the Design is full of industrial vintage pieces, with a hint of European charm and a dollop of glam. A focal point of the store is Christine's artwork in which she layers photographs with vintage type, maps or graphic treatments. Whatever your fancy you are sure to LOVE it!!

This project is special to me as my good friend Laura Felstiner spearheaded the creation of this amazing home in Toronto. With traditional construction methods, you might expect to build a home like this from scratch in, oh, lets say a year. How does a few months sound to you? This is the beauty of modular! An incredible feat of engineering, it's almost hard to believe that this home arrived in six pieces on four flatbed trucks. Using a crane to assemble, the 2,130 square foot home was ready to go in seven hours! Read More
