A rare glimpse into exemplary craftsmanship – Hermès At Work

“Behind every finishing touch, there is a starting point.  Behind every technical accomplishment, there is a long  apprenticeship and ceaseless endeavour.  Behind every finely tuned gesture, there is the right tool, a history and a name.  Behind the smallest detail, there is a human being, guided by a watchful eye and pride in work well done.”

Road Trip to Harrison Mills – Rowena’s Inn on the River

We’ve been hearing about Rowena’s Inn on the River for quite some time and hoped to someday drive out for a visit. Last weekend we finally made the trek and were taken back by the sheer beauty of the place. Nestled amidst beautiful mountains and ancient fir trees, this beautifully restored English style manor offers commanding views of the Harrison River. The estate has the atmosphere of understated elegance and rustic luxury, a place filled with BC history. It was well worth the drive out to Harrison Mills for a day of relaxation.

Address: 14282 Morris Valley Rd, Harrison Mills, BC V0M 1L0

Designer Tips – Cleaning Glass and Mirrors

Cleaning mirrors and glass can be a problematic job. In spite of all of the effort, the glass still has streaks and lint and never seems sparkling clean.  We often get asked if we have a solution for this problem.  After years of trial and error, we can conclude that apart from the elbow grease, you need the right cleaner, tools and technique.  To get a beautifully cleaned glass surface we suggest the following:

1. Never use a swirling motion as this causes streaks to appear when light hits the surface.  Wipe the mirror top to bottom first, then wipe side to side.  We have found this will leave you with perfectly clean glass.

2. Cleaners – Sprayway comes in at the top of our list.


3. Cleaning Cloth – For a cloth that requires only water and has given us amazing results, we suggest the KD Cloth. This cloth is also great on stainless appliances. We love it so much, that we now carry it in our store. ($7.50)
