A "Pure" Designer

Hope you're all having a good week so far. It's gone by so fast, or is it just me?

Thought I'd share a recent shoot with you. I shot the lovely Ami Mckay, of Pure Design, for Chatelaine Magazine  in this month's issue. I've had the pleasure of working with her a number of times, and it's always heaps of fun. Ami's a talented furniture designer and interior designer, and she's just about to launch her organic bedding line for Bed Bath and Beyond. Exciting times! Read more about her here.

A little look into what inspires her. She's a nature girl all the way. 

A sample of some of her new soft furnishings. 

The beautiful view from her studio. Lucky girl. 

If you recognize Ami, she was on an HGTV show with the lovely Erin Cebula, of ET Canada, a few years back. Multi-talented girl.

On a final note for today, I did a post over at one of my favourite blogs, Poppytalk, about a couple more very talented women. Girls clearly rule this week. ;) Here's a peek...

Back soon!

Hi, Janis,
