featured blog: these roving eyes

By: Lauren McPhillips
Since the launch of our new blog, we at Style at Home have been so happy to be able to bring you updates on hot design trends and also give you a little behind-the-scenes look at our day-to-day lives working at the magazine. We also love being part of the blog community and interacting with other fabulous bloggers -- the online design world is full of great treasures! Since we follow so many wonderful blogs, we thought it would be great to celebrate some of our faves. So, we're going to be featuring a fabulous blog each week, focusing on design, food, photography, etc. For our first feature, I decided to start it all off with a blog that has a broad focus, but encapsulates what Style at Home is all about -- beautiful spaces, beautiful food and beautiful life, all documented with inspiring photography.

Blog: These Roving Eyes

Blogger: Jason Hudson

Location: Toronto

What do you do for a living? I manage a concert hall downtown Toronto, although I went to school for photography and do projects here and there. What does your blog bring to readers? The blog's subtitle reads: T he Clever, The Stylish, The Delicious: The Things We Long to Be (And Sometimes Are). In this Martha-fied world, it seems we’re always striving to be some better version of ourselves. It’s fun to show the highlights of our lives, but it can become a bit bragg-y or one-dimensional without pulling from the darker bits, too. I show the less-glossy parts in the interest of honesty and balance. I think it’s what makes people like reading. What are you most passionate about? Anyone who knows me can vouch for the fact that I get pretty darn passionate about a lot of things {including RuPaul’s Drag Race!}. I actually think the number one word people would use to describe me is 'passionate',  sometimes to a fault. I’ll try to keep a lid on it! If you weren't in your current profession, what else would you be doing? In a perfect world I’d be shooting magazine spreads like the beauties in Style at Home! Describe your home in six words or less. Masculine, eclectic, rich, textured, inviting, well-lit. Where do you shop for pieces for your home? All over!  Flea markets, local shops, and Craigslist, Craigslist, Craigslist! Which is your favourite post? I tend to like the personal stories, in the Biographically Speaking section of my blog. I can’t narrow it down any further than that. What song, movie or soundtrack sums up your life? Music is a big part of my life -- I blog about it a lot! I find myself always going back to the Amelie soundtrack, though – remember that movie? Beautiful! It covers everything, from the happiest and jauntiest French accordion to somber strings. Perfection! Who is your favourite person or favourite thing to photograph? I love photographing my nieces and nephews – babies and kids are the only thing more swoon-worthy than food. But food doesn’t move or complain, so it's a toss-up! xo, Lauren P.S. Interested in having your blog featured? E-mail us at blog@styleathome.com
