Street Style Haute List: April 10

EASTER BEST Easter hits us full Spring ahead. I spotted this week's fashionista, Sara,  walking out of The Fairmont Vancouver after enjoying Easter brunch with family and friends. Her fresh tangerine dress is perfect for such an occasion, celebrating spring and all it's colourful creations. Sara's light grey cotton button-down, vibrant orange dress and turquoise belt are all from Oak & Fort in Gastown. Her add ons include a Marc by Marc Jacobs classic percy bag accompanied by ankle boots from Aldo. Hope you all had a great long weekend!

I'm in a Tangerine Trance

Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango [ref. 17-1643] the color of 2012, moving from 2011′s honeysuckle pink into an orange frame of mind, calling it a “spirited reddish orange that will continue to provide the energy boost we need to take charge and move forward”. Bold, bright, and versatile tangerine takes us on a vivid colour journey this year. This tone can be muted and worn daily or if you’re daring, as the focal piece. Orange hues can be shown in a variety of shades, anywhere from corals to the reds, all the way down to pastels and orange-sherbets. I find myself caught in its trance, dreaming up ways to incorporate this new colour. Below, a series of ways that Tangerine Tango can be integrated into the home, style and cosmetic beauty! - Chelsea Jackson

Our latest love: the urban ecclectic family home

With our latest design project, A Good Chick To Know had absolute creative freedom... and we took full advantage! We added stairs, removed walls, and injected a full dose of the young family's personality into the space. As we spent time in the home and really "felt" what the space was longing for, our initial vision altered and grew to suit. We originally planned a white-wash meets pop art theme, but quickly realized that a more family-friendly and personal feel better met the needs of our clients; with a baby and two dogs, our working-professional parents needed a space that showcased their creative interests yet still provided them with optimal efficiency for the space. This home became an eclectic mix that showcased our client's love for midcentury furniture and vintage pieces - a France & Son's original sofa and vintage lighting set the stage, and the space was spattered with interesting art: Fred Herzog in the living room, Brent Ray Fraser on the back veranda, Arnie Jacobsen prints in the dining room and Zoe Pawlak downstairs. By taking over the previously separate basement suite, we were able to add in a man-cave inspired area, a home office, a guest bedroom and second kitchen/ bar area for the family. Take a peek through the pics - we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them! Let us know your thoughts, we always love to hear what you think. Photos courtesy of Tracey Ayton Photography (www.traceyaytonphotography.com)
