I am extremely proud to say that my boyfriend Chad Baba from MK Baba designs was on the winning team - Beauty in Ruins. Their vignette was breathtaking - it looked like a bathroom hidden in a secret garden paradise. Their own description said it best:
"Imagine you are in the hills of Tuscany and you come across these ruins. There once stood a structure with four walls and a roof but now hardly resembles a structure at all. Two of the walls are amazingly still standing, made from brick but weathered by the elements and overgrown with foliage. The floor is a rustic hardwood, obviously many years old and extremely weathered as well.
However this space has been transformed into something beautiful. A serene outdoor bathing space. This once simple building turned to ruins has been re-purposed and turned into a secret oasis that is peaceful and calm."
One of my favorite details was the bust turned into a faucet and named Farrah Faucet! HAHA.
You can learn more about this year's Vignettes winners in the December issue of Avenue magazine. I can't wait to see teh write-up! Yeahhh!
As well, check out the Vignettes website and/or search #vignettesyeg on instagram.
Of course, I'd be remiss if I also didn't encourage you to check out the MK Baba instagram to see what Chad is up to!
I also have some cool pics from last year, when Vignettes was in a smaller space but still awesome! I'll include a few just because they are so pretty! The first pic is from Chad group's space last year called the Porch.
There is so much talent in Edmonton! If you can afford it, shop local and employ a local designer, craftsperson, woodworker etc.
