Arren Williams is the name, and I'm a stylist, editor and trend reporter. You'll catch my work regularly popping up in print in the likes of the National Post, House & Home and elsewhere. I'm also a guest expert on Citytv's CityLine, and you can occasionally find me on HGTV as well as on ABC 7 News in Chicago.

To keep things fun I've tapped a couple of friends - Julia Black and Jenn Hannotte - to contribute their views on design too. Enjoy!

A split style personality

We have our house, which you can check out in various states of disarray here on the blog, and then there's my other house - a white painted cottage. It's imaginary of course, lol, but it's where I can indulge in more of the modern country side of my personality. It would still be filled to the brim with vintage and thrifty stuff, but would feel more kicked back and definitely more on the 20's, 30's and 40's side of things. I'm thinking white painted floorboards, slipcovers, mix and match painted furniture, a fireplace and a vegetable garden.

Well, as I keep on dreaming, I occasionally stumble across perfect additions for this make believe home. Check out the work of photographer Yvette Inufio's work. The compositions, colours and moods are perfect. And yes, I recognise a fellow magpie with a vintage shopping addiction when I see one, lol. You'll find Yvette's very affordable work on Etsy right here, and her portfolio on Flickr here.
