canada, eh?: gladstone hotel + thout design

by Grace Bonney

this is my last canada post for the morning and then it’s on to sneak peeks and the final episode (and final products) of design by the book!

[the ceramic abstract birds and laser-cut headboard were from the room of erin mccutcheon, einav mekori, annie tung and andree wejsmann. birds may not be everyone’s favorite thing at this point but i’ll have to say, these were absolutely beautiful.]

[this cool ‘living wall’ by adam harris and parimal gosai was made of plants housed in containers constructed from thousands of re-used and pressed plastic bags.]

[it was hard to capture how beautiful these copper lamps by derek mcleod were in person. they filled the entire back hall of the floor and cast such a beautiful pink light in the room. the glow was intoxicating. i could have stared up at them for hours were it not for the intense crowd of moving people and the fact that it was literally 82 degrees up there.]

last but not least, on our way out we stopped in a pop-up shop by thout design and i was completely transfixed by these flickering table and hanging lamps. i had to take some quick video to capture how pretty the flicker was inside. i would seriously love to have one of those small table lamps. i’m going to have to add another “saving for furniture” fund to my to-do list.
