Interior Design Show 2017-#IDS2017

I had an opportunity to display my metal sculptures at the Toronto Interior Design Show in January 2017, earlier this year.  I decided to display my metal screen-Birds in Flight, the Globe, and the light column with great success.  Guests to the show range from local artisans, designers, architects, and home owners.  The show was fantastic and worth every penny.  Everyone in the Prototype section is creative and extraordinary and I made some great connections too.  I look forward to IDS2018 with some new metal art.  ...

Privacy Screens in Canada

I have started my business in 1999 in the landscaping in the Toronto area.  In 2010 I have launched an addition to my designs with garden art and privacy screens.  These custom made and custom sizable metal screens  can be installed on a deck, on a fence and in the garden on a frame.  Great for privacy and as an art piece, they can bring life to boring areas of the garden.  My metal screens are designed and plasma cut in Burlington, Ontario, Canada.  My client’s have used these screens to block an unsightly area, create property division, and soften a fence where plants are unable to be grown due to space, and light levels. The opportunities are endless....

Time Lapse Photography

This year I have had the pleasure of learning a lot of things from my big brother.  He is so computer creative.  He is up on the latest technology and in doing so he has really opened my eyes on keeping up with the times.  Blogging, Tweeting, Facebook, LinkedIn…. So many things to know and understand, and it can become overwhelming.  This summer I learned about Time Lapse Photography.  He showed me how easy it is on his Android phone.  Intriguing, I thought.  This would be so perfect in landscape designing.  I can implement and document a garden from zero to complete using a Nikon camera, a tripod and a Hahnel Giga T Pro II (I opted for this system because my phone memory is too small).  This little gadget hooks onto the top of my camera and allows me to set the intervals in which to...

Drone’s and Aerial Photography in Landscaping

DRONE Photography is the new rave.  It has opened up so many possibilities.  Now available to the public, a drone equipped with a camera, can be flown over a property where a renovation is taking place (with permission by the property  owner).  This allows the builder and owner to see the changes to the property from a totally different perspective.  When I photographed the finished product of a landscape design using my phone or a regular camera, it was difficult to showcase the changes from ground view.  I just needed to get 10 feet higher, or even higher in some cases.  Now I can take high definition (HD) pictures and video with my qaudcopter, from 10 feet to a 100 feet in the air.  It’s gorgeous, and it will shock you when you see the quality.   Check out Dusil Design (YouTube) for edited landscape design videos...

OUTDOOR FURNITURE SALES!!!

OUTDOOR FURNITURE SALES!!! The sales are on for outdoor furniture!  I know it can be really expensive to furnish your outdoor space.  Perhaps now the piece you admired is on sale. Gone are the days that we have a barbecue and a dining set only.  Take a trip to the pool centres, gardens centres, and even Canadian Tire and check out the furniture they are unloading to make room for 2015.  A chaise, a recliner, a couch.  You definitely need one to furnish your porch, or patio.  The only way you will lounge outside is if there is somewhere comfy to sit on with your coffee and read the newspaper.  It’s Me Time (for maybe 30 minutes).  It’s worth the investment!...
