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!

Julia Black: Pop-Up Colour

In light of all the pop-up shops that have been, well, popping up lately, I've felt a lovely buzz around the city like never before. The only problem is that this dampening, dreary winter weather throws a blanket on all the energy we have. I know, when you look outside it appears cold and grey, but the fix is in, and it's colour! Just look to the latest from folks like Jonathan Adler, CB2, Ikea and BoConcept for tons of helpful inspiration, and decide on a New Year's resolution to get more pops of colour in your life. Have a look below at snaps of BoConcept's collection for 2010. Oh, and btw, BoConcept has a store in Vancouver and are about to open a brand new location in Calgary in the next few days.

So you say grey or gray?

Which is it? Unfortunately I tend to flip back and forth, which confuses both spellcheck and any editor I might be working with, lol. Whatever, it's a colour that people seem to have a penchant for these days. We'll be picking a dark smoky tone, either Palais Royal or Chrome from Ralph Lauren Paint, for the walls and ceiling of our basement media room. And I have a bit of a thing for grey/gray glass too - Somewhere in a box in storage sits a bunch of (fingers crossed) well wrapped vintage and new art glass that will be making an appearance shortly in the new place...

In the meantime, here's a swanky set of grey/gray glass vases from BoConcept who, sadly for me at least, have yet to open a store in Toronto; though they do have one for the lucky folks in Vancouver.
