SOUVENIR STUDIOS is part lifestyle shop, design studio and gallery, located in Toronto in the west end neighbourhood of Brockton Village, and it is truly a refreshing retail experience. Founder and owner Danielle Suppa has created a collective and collaborative home for emerging Canadian designers, makers and artists to feature their creations and designs in a simplistic, beautiful and pallid studio setting. Suppa curates her shop in a thoughtful way, featuring modern wares that are accessible, beautifully executed and above all lovingly made. The approach she presents to her holistic type of retail resonates with her customers as soon as they enter the shop doors. You are greeted by a clean white palette that sets the perfect stage for all the beautiful pieces and items that line the walls and displays that decorate the shop floor. With a focus on ceramics, textiles, fragrance and art, each item is wonderfully special and distinct. Your purchase and take away from the shop is a special souvenir to remember the day.
This June Souvenir launched BEACH HOUSE, a presentation featuring homewares, clothing and art, focusing on summer time living. The curated pieces and designs truly captures an essence of warmth, texture and light, that living in the sunshine can bring. When I saw the items that Danielle had presented I felt it would make a perfect story for THE OUTSIDER. Featured below is a small sample of pieces from the summer line, incorporated with the island’s landscape, warm summer light and my cottage interior, all acting as backdrop for the BEACH HOUSE collection. It was a lovely experience to photograph each of these pieces at my island home and offering my interpretation of Danielle’s curated items. You can shop the story through the images below and take away a SOUVENIR.
