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!
Here's the 700 lb steel beam, and the two other small beams that are tied into it, that now support the second floor. The most nerve wracking part of the install was when the contractors had to bash through the exterior brick wall to lodge the main beam into place. Gulp.
