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!

Guest blog / Julia Black: Going for the Loot

Julie Black: In my younger days, the first thing that would come to mind if I heard the word 'loot' would be treats and other giveaways grabbed on my way out of a birthday party. Now 'loot' is more commonly known as 'swag' yet still ignites rather ravenous excitement, with or without a slice of brithday cake. There's also another 'loot', and one that's particularly Canadian, Loyal Loot Collective. The all-woman collective are a brilliant set of artists - Doha Chebib, Carmen Douville, Dara Humniski and Anna Thomas - each bringing something different to the creative party. Anna Thomas thought up a swish way to hang your gear with her Monsieur Dressup (way better than dumping stuff on the floor) while the Log Bowls, designed by Doha Chebib, are handmade using locally reclaimed wood in combination with a high-gloss, vibrant finish (and are a totally perfect design prezzie if ever there was one). I can't wait to see what the Loyal Loot bunch comes up with next!
