Hello Weekend!

17 06 2012

Happy Father’s day to all the papas out there.  Hope you guys are enjoying your weekend.  Thank you so much to Brehan for doing a trunk show at our studio.  Thank you to Caitlin for such a fun day and to Sally for bringing lots of laughter.  I love hanging out with my two dear friends so much.  We are lucky to have lovely little cocoon to create beautiful things.  Brehan’s pieces will be at our space today.  Please visit beautiful Caitlin today from noonish until 5ish.

Here is a little inspiration on this lovely Sunday.

Oh, yum. Vraiment beaucoup, yum… This beach house located in South Africa has all the components of the dreamy summer house: the exterior cladding and shutters made out of eucalyptus lattes, the ocean view and outdoors spaces or the simply furnished indoor space. I think my heart just skipped beat. For real.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

Beautiful Decay

2 04 2012

We found several abandon buildings at the coast.  They are so beautiful and fascinating.  Always wondered of what happened to the people that once occupied their lives there.  And why they allowed their buildings to be abandoned.  It is also eerie and ghostly to see nature reclaiming her space.

Wishing you a lovely Monday.





Please visit Caitlin today!

31 03 2012

Caitlin has giving me a day off to run away.  It has been so lovely to have our dear C sharing the studio with me.  We have had such a good time hanging out and creating together.  Please swing by and visit her today.  She will be at our studio from noon until 6 pm.  We will be closed on Sunday.

Our sanctuary.  It is full of light and so dreamy.

Half of the space is for our show room, which you could purchase all the wonderful treasures.  Another half is our work area where we sketch, drape, sew, work on our website and just hanging out.  We are also thrill to have a corner where we could shoot our own photos.  Everything that we need in one tiny space.  Perfect!

My new obsession on these amazing Japanese tapes.

Our work area is filled with inspiration images, books, treasures, and of course colourful art supplies.

Black and white dress for spring. Thank you sweet Iris for being our IDOM girl.

The studio is on the second floor facing Burnside Street.  Visit our lovely Caitlin soon.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.





My little world

13 03 2012

Here are bits and pieces of my little cocoon.

I love being on the second floor.  The light is lovely and I could watch the world goes by.  Plus it makes the studio feels more special that you have to know about little idom cocoon to come by.  A bit like hidden magical secret.

New Beginning

3 03 2012

I was so nervous yesterday.  Fretting that nobody will show up and that the space won’t be good enough, etc…  What if it doesn’t work this time around.  All the fear and all the worry just took over my body.  Thank goodness that all the dear friends showed up and supported the little label that could.  Thank you to B for surprising me and buying first item of the day.  And then give it to me as a good luck treat.  Then I met so many of my lovely neighbors, Rachel from Haunt and Todd from Black Box Gallery.  They made me feel so welcomed.  Thank you.  Later on my partner in crime Caitlin showed up and made everything even better.  All of my dear friends came by, Heather, Nic, Marc, Gemma, Jackie, Velia, and Corey.  Plus Heather brought me a beautiful plant and little darling Gemma entertained us all with her charming self.  She was our mini model for Saint James.  Thank you for all the calls, texts, and emails.  You made me feel so loved.  Thank you so much for making this girl happy as a clam.

Little G and her new mini Saint James piece paired with IDOM printed scarf.  Thank you Nic for taking home fun pieces.
