Blogger’s Style: Tim from Design Maze

Aug 15, 2013


This month’s EQ3 Blogger of the Month is Toronto-based blogger Tim Lam of Design Maze. In addition to authoring his popular design blog, Tim has a busy career in the finance industry and runs his own decorating business. His work has been featured in Canadian publications like Style at Home and The National Post. Tim is known for his love of colourful spaces and graphic patterns, so when asked to choose a favourite EQ3 accessory, it’s no surprise that he selected iconic bedding from the EQ3+ Marimekko line.


Earlier this month, Tim told EQ3 Facebook readers why he was drawn to Marimekko’s Unikko duvet cover. And today, he’s showing us how he styled it in his own bedroom. You can find the latest duvet colours and styles here.








“Living in a condo right at the heart of downtown Toronto means I have limited access to my very own outdoor oasis. So I am always looking for ways to bring the outdoors into my interiors to reflect the beauty of our changing seasons. For this summer, I am delighted to have met the bright and cheerful Unikko Duvet Cover and Shams by Marimekko at EQ3.


The bedroom always has a special place in my heart, and I think you will agree with me. After all, it is the first room our eyes see when we wake up and the last space we enter for a good night sleep.


Poppies are one of my favourite summer flowers, and I love the graphic, modern interpretation of this delicate, yet proud symbolic bloom. The fabric is luxuriously soft and has a subtle sheen thanks to the 300-thread-count and 100% cotton percale. The bright canary yellow and soft dove grey palette of the Unikko duvet cover and shams works seamlessly in my off-white bedroom and with my wallpapered feature wall.


With hits of ocean blues and a hint of pale pink through decorative accessories and pillows, I am ready to jump into bed!”  – Tim Lam, Design Maze

Blogger’s Style: Christine from Just Bella

Jul 17, 2013


We kicked off a new project this month on our social media platforms – EQ3’s Blogger of the Month – as a way to connect with all of the fabulous design and style-minded folks out there in the blogosphere.


For the month of July, we chose Christine Shankowsky from the Just Bella blog. Christine is an Edmonton-based graphic designer with a flair for modern-elegant style and an eye for details. In a Facebook Exclusive, released earlier this month, Christine told readers what she liked about the Bliss Table Lamp, a favourite of hers from the EQ3 accessory line. You can read her quote here.


Today, she’s taking us inside her own home to show us how she styled the lamp in her master bedroom.








“I’m a sucker for accessories: fluffy pillows, pretty books, cozy blankets, and I think I can now add beautiful lamps to that list. The ‘Bliss Table Lamp’ won me over the moment I took it out of the box.


I’ll be honest, I had a hard time deciding where to put this lamp. It is so versatile I really thought it would look great in any of my rooms! In the end, it found a home on my night stand where I have been enjoying it every night since. I love the clean lines of this lamp, it’s bold yet subtle and makes such a great statement in the room. The height was perfect with my headboard and I loved how the translucent base tied in perfectly with the glass knobs on the dresser.


My night stand tends to be a place where things inevitably pile up – books, phone, glass(es) of water – the light and airy feel of the lamp helps things from feeling too busy when life gets a little cluttered. Plus, the switch is down on the cord so it’s easy to turn off after some late night reading! Bonus points in my book.”  – Christine Shankowsky, Just Bella
