Artisan Picks: June 2018

Custom Printed Wallpaper
While shopping for some pretty house decor items to help personalize the condo I’m renting in Toronto I stumbled upon Four Blocks South. They had a pop up store in the mall I’m living near and I was drawn to their beautiful and unique home goods¬†like a moth to a flame. I’m actually about to start the process of building my family’s dream home and let me tell you, the home decor wheels are turning…Hey ladies, you wouldn’t happen to be available to work your magic in Utah would you?!Continue Reading

TV Trailer Makeover

Katherine Heigl In Her Trailer For TV Show Suits
Ever since I became an actor my home away from home has been my on set trailer. When I was a kid I started out in a honey wagon, which is a block of six or so closet sized rooms attached to one another on wheels. Once I’d earned my stripes I was upgraded to a triple banger (I realize how that sounds but I didn’t coin the phrase) which is three slightly larger rooms attached to one another on wheels. After the triple banger came the double banger. Yup, you guessed it, two even bigger rooms attached to one another on wheels. I have fond memories of my trailer neighbors, the other actors in the adjoining room, and being subject to their blaring heavy metal music (Brendan Fehr on Roswell listened exclusively to Metallica at ear splitting decibels) or their blaring afternoon television shows (Justin Chambers on Grey’s Anatomy loved him some Judge Judy.) I know you wouldn’t think it but I actually miss those shared trailer days and my co-star neighbors! I really love those guys! Anyway, these days, after almost 30 years in the business of being an actor I have upgraded to a single trailer all my own. Making my at work space feel homey, comfortable and peaceful is usually my first priority when I start a new job. Continue Reading

Artisan Picks: May 2018

EM'SAY Planters
Here are my favorite artisan picks for May. I was hoping to get this out a month ago to help inspire some fabulous mother’s day gift ideas but I fell way behind and totally missed the gift guide opportunity. Orrrrrr…maybe I’m way ahead of the game and am getting this out right in time for you to start planning next year’s Mother’s Day gift! Anywho, here’s the list of picks and keep in mind, each and everyone of these would make an excellent anytime gift. So don’t wait until next year to treat mom, or even better, yourself! Enjoy. XOXO, KTContinue Reading

My Almost Perfect Office Space

Calling all inspired decorators! I need your help! I have the perfect spot to call my office. A space where I can dream, plan, write, edit, research, read, and generally feel productive. A space where there are no demanding children demanding my attention. No dishes to wash, no laundry to do, no dogs to take care of (at least not my own,) no household chores begging to be done. Basically it has none of the distractions that derail my creative productivity at home. The only problem is…to be creative I kinda need to feel creative and this office space hasn’t been helping with that. In fact it’s sorta of hindered it to be honest. There’s so much that’s truly wonderful about it. The views, the beauty of the dark wood walls, the lovely purple hued plaid furniture, my great big elegant desk. It is elegant and sophisticated for sure, but it lacks…something. A certain warmth and brightness.Continue Reading
