Bookhou in Covet Garden

So fun to see the home of Arounna and John (of Bookhou) in the latest issue of online magazine Covet Garden today.  The talented couple live above their brick and mortar shop, Bookhou in Toronto with their two adorable children Lliam and Piper.  Note their veneer pendant hanging above their dining room (above photo).  Arounna made that for a DIY here on Poppytalk when she was a regular contributor.  You can get the how-to here. See more of their home and another how-to of Arounna's at Covet Garden. Photo's by Ashley Capp.

I'm in love with that wire crate shelf, such a great way to have lots of storage without blocking the flow of a room and its natural lighting.

Such beautiful interiors. SO gorgeous without being an impossible showhouse sort of environment... I especially love the second photo and agree with 'The Aquarians' - I too a in love with that wire crate shelf. Incredibly cool and stylish. A semi-statement piece of any room.
Oh, and the little girl in the corner is so cute, giving the photo a family ambience (on another note, I would have loved a blackboard like that at her age :)
In fact, I honestly wish I had a house like that!

You have a brilliant blog and loads of hard work has obviously payed off to make it a quiet success. :) Absolutely fantastic and it was a pleasure to come across.
