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!

Not all white

While running around like a crazy person this week - hunting down just about every lemonade pitcher in the city for a shoot - I had a slow-motion oh, what's that moment while shopping at The Bay. This is Arabesque, a porcelain dinnerware service designed by Niels Refsgaard for Dansk and inspired by a mix of Japanese and Greek hand-painted pottery. I don't know about you, but I'm just loving the fact that it's not plain old white (and that I could throw it in with my all-white dishes and it would look FANTASTIC). Oh, and for more on the classic colour combo of blue and white click here.


Off and on

I'm not sure whether it's this unseasonably warm weather (the back door is wide open and Spot is in the garden digging holes to Timbuktu), but my get up and go has got up and went. I'm totally in the mood to start this long weekend early with a quick snooze on the sofa, lol, but in the meantime, there's cool stuff worth sharing! Sprout and Slide are the latest in lighting from Jonathan Adler. The shades, realised in a beatifully matte unglazed porcelain, pick up on his Relief collection of pottery with organic references and simple forms. Lovely.
