We’re thrilled to have Janis Nicolay as EQ3’s November Blogger of the Month! Based in Vancouver, Janis is a photographer and prop stylist for designers, architects, and lifestyle magazines across the country (and beyond). Her work appears regularly in publications like Canadian House and Home, Style at Home, Western Living, Canadian Living, Chatelaine and BC Home and Garden. She’s also done international work for publications like Vogue Living Australia and San Francisco based quarterly, Anthology Magazine, as well as contributed to the popular Canadian blog Poppytalk.
On her blog Pinecone Camp, Janis shares her love of mid-century modern design, baking and more. Recently, she partnered with Random House Publishing and Vancouver interior designer turned bakery owner Rosie Daykin to shoot Rosie’s newly released cookbook Butter Baked Goods. So it’s only fitting that when asked what her favourite EQ3 accessory is, Janis chose the Siirtolapuutarha dishware collection from EQ3+ Marimekko.
Janis talked about Siirtolapuutarha on the EQ3 Facebook Page earlier this month. Today, she’s taking us inside her Vancouver home to show us the versatility of these pieces.
“Always a fan of Marimekko, I was happy to find that EQ3 carried so many of their accessories. The Siirtolapuutarha series is my current favourite. I often use the smaller bowls as vases, or to stash spare change and house keys by the front door, and the 1.5L bowl is my fruit bowl these days. The 25cm plate pairs perfectly with the dotted bowl for an easy serving set, and it makes a nice hostess or thank you gift too! What’s really great about this series is that it works well with any decor and colour. That’s my kind of accessory.” - Janis Nicolay, Pinecone Camp
