Luxury Home Canada

Featured in the spring issue of Luxury Home Canada is a Designer Showcase profiling the work of our firm (pages 113-119).   I'm very grateful for the publication's interest in our creations and for the reflective text by Isabel Eva Bohrer.    All photographs are by Josh Dunford.
Admittedly I am an extremely lucky man, able to practice in the field of my interest, everyday.  Being an interior designer is not so much what I do, as it is who I am.  
'I am hauted by a passion to build.' Jean Pouvre.
Luxury Home Canada takes its readers into residences large and small, showcasing the people, projects, designs and products that make up the custom home industry.

Things Change

There's been a lot going on at the office these days.  With several exciting new projects on our screens, comprehensive installations plus personnel changes of note.
After five years as a highly valued member of my studio, Chad Falkenberg is moving on to further his design career.  Chad has been an intently engaged part of RBI and his commitment and care, have been central to the success of so much of our work.   Chad most certainly will be missed, but I know he will flourish on his chosen path, and wish him great joy in all his endeavours. 
The vocation of interior design is a life of learning, discovery is around every corner.  The only thing that does not change, is change.

Mobile Site

This week we launched two new RBI sites for iPhone + iPad mobile devices.  We wanted our mobile sites have the ease of operation that our site for computers offers.  Simple + straightforward.  My theory of design has the same starting point for all disciplines, 'Intuitive Common Sense; with sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation and facts'.   Aesthetics grow out of resolving functional requirements.  In my opinion anything that prioritizes look over function is more than a miss, it's broken.  With these two additions to our on-line presence, I believe we've accomplished easy navigation plus good looks.  Many thanks to Burnkit for their development + design expertise, to make these sites work deftly.
