House&Home magazine Fall2015 small space issue features our house!

We had so much fun doing the photo shoot with House&Home. Kai and Morgan were so good at making our place look fantastic (that's right, our house don't normally look like this). Thank you Virginia and Sara for photographing our house in the best light! The family portrait. Khai (the baby) is just about to fall asleep, so no smiles from him, only a little frustration with all the locomotion.

 

Dan is a favourite here. And that's not a TV on the wall, it's actually a photograph of a TV, by me. Want to see more? www.mylenguyen.com/work/

And that's what H&H looks like for September 2015

 

The walnut live edge desk for a newly revived home office

The waterfall edge is stunning with a live edge walnut piece because it actually does look like water is falling. This was made using one continuous solid piece of live edge walnut. The corner is mitered for that seamless fall.

Need I say again? Walnut, walnut, walnut. We can't have enough walnut. It is timeless beauty.

Set against the white built-in cabinetry and the grey tones rug, the walnut desk with raw steel legs really pops.

This is the view coming into the front door on your left side. Our client were thinking of putting a navy blue chair with this, I think it would look gorgeous because of that nice contrast between the deep blue and the yellow/brown warmth of the walnut, against a neutral backdrop. 

A closer look at the live edge. This would also work nicely as a mantle, or a simple kitchen island.

The Pedestal Walnut Table Roams the City Again

Hillcrest seems to be a great area in Toronto, and the 4 feet by 10 feet pedestal walnut table thinks so too!  So that's where it's will settle, in a beautifully and delightfully renovated house along with many charming pieces such as a salvaged orange vanity on the main floor powder room. The living room has been turned into the dinning room since eating is much more fun than sitting around on sofas.

Even the furry member of the house is excited about the new table.  I hope he knows not to jump up on the table.

My father in-law standing proud since he and Rock built this table together!  Rock has to step aside and share the fame.

I'm being invited back in the new year when the chairs are in and the renovation is more settled to take photos of the place!  I'm very excited about that and very excited to see what chairs our client fancies for this table!
