How mindfulness is now being extended to home interiors
Financial Times
There are few things in life that one can afford to take for granted, but light switches are one of them. All they require is an almost subliminal flicker from the brain and a touch from the finger, and hey presto, there is light. Yet the latest fashion is for furniture that forbids passivity and forces us to engage with it more actively.

Extending summer: 6 beautiful things to keep you thinking warm thoughts
The Globe and Mail
An Indian summer — that glorious circumstance when August's heat gets drawn out all the way past Halloween — seems highly unlikely. Which is why now is a good time to fake it. Not by cranking up the heater and wandering around the house in Hawaiian shirts, shades and flip flops. But by adding late summer colours — fiery reds, golden yellows and earth tones — into the home decor mix.

Mixing raw, industrial design with comfy, traditional home decor
Toronto Star
Industrial Style lets it all hang out. Gears, inner workings, and raw materials are left in plain view and have a beauty all their own. The backdrop can be exposed brick walls, beams and pipes, high ceilings, vast expanses of glass, concrete and natural wood floors. But all of these elements are not necessary; you can achieve the look with plaster walls or wallboard, finished wood or tile floors.

Here's how fall home decor is a lot like drinking wine
The Huffington Post
We recently chatted with the New York-based designer Thom Filicia to see how we might make the transition from one season to the next less painful. Our favourite takeaway? To think of it the way you think of your wine: "The word 'change' can scare people — it's not so much about changing. If you think about drinking wine and going from whites and rosés in the summer and moving into heavier reds in the fall, it's one of those things that just sort of evolves," Filicia says.

Point-and-click decorating
The Wall Street Journal
Of course, traditional designers still ply their trade — which at its highest levels has little to do with pointing-and-clicking, calling instead for visits to showrooms and consultations with contractors and architects. Though that's the world where designer Sheila Bridges is most at ease, she willingly stepped outside her comfort zone on a recent gig.
