Back to back installs, overnight rush orders, 15 hour days, late nights, really early mornings, on and off airplanes, revamping CKD, launching an online store, developing new product, presenting my work in places I used to dream about. Life lately has been nuts. And it has been scary and it has been insane, but absolutely amazing. I never thought I would enjoy the rush of it all, but I do. I’ve never felt so alive. I have learned some of my hardest lessons in the past three months. And lost some sleep and friends because of them. This time I felt the growing pains and some days were unbearable to get through. God will only give you what he knows you can handle. I need to trust that more. There is SO much happening for 2019. Can’t wait to see how all of this unfolds in the next couple months. x C



I’m having a really hard time keeping my eyes open at the moment. but I thought I’d quickly say hi and show you some of the artwork that is going to be used for CKD’s newest custom piece for the new Byblos restaurant opening soon. The piece has been sent to my suppliers for production. and it’s really cool. can’t wait to show you what we’ve come up with. k going to bed. x C


// 20 Wellington

Install day at 20 Wellington. I’m really happy with the way this mural turned out. Tuscan fantasy was the direction I was given. Oversized fish and octopus, a magical floating window, Tuscan sun, white butterflies and oversized lemons was what CKD came up with. Can’t wait to see this space when it’s done. Studio Munge have beautiful plans.


// Location: Toronto

CKD’s newest bespoke project is going up in Cantina Mercatto at 20 Wellington. This is CKD’s biggest project yet. Here’s a little sneak peek into what we’ve been working on. More next week. Happy weekend. x


CKD rug has landed from India and it’s even more beautiful than I imagined it would be. This rug was designed for a living room. It’s an alternating handspun and mill spun viscose (also known as Bamboo Silk) design to give the tone on tone some movement.

The outlined floral rug I’ve already showed you. Which is going in the front entry way of the same home :) Can’t wait to get these installed! See all CKD rugs here!



Photos I had laying around from New York. I finally got to see the new Maman Nomad location. Elisa covered their espresso machine in the toile print and put the floral on the walls. Looks great! Also if you’re interested in the gelaskins x ckd phone cases those are available here! x
