Metropolis Living

New(ish) in the Junction. You’re making me homesick, Toronto.


Not only does Mjölk deserve their own post, I can’t believe we haven’t shared their Nordic decor-deliciousness here. Identity and website by Toronto friends Sali Tabacchi.


A Vancouver design blog gathering inspiration and promoting talent. Crafts, recipes and vintage goodness.

The Hansen Family

Gesa Hansen makes uniquely handcrafted wooden furniture. She also has a pretty rad blog of all things designy.

Design within reach has a blog

Now there are even more reasons to be depressed about my home: Design Notes.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
