The way the sun seeped into the LEFAIR North Hollywood loft and bounced off of the white walls would get any light junkie high. Singer/songwriter and popstar, Bebe Rexha, known for hits such as “I Got You” and G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself, and I”, sat on the white leather couch after a five-hour shoot. “I like you. You’re like me, bossy,” Bebe Rexha said to our Editor in Chief, Tracy Kahn. “But that’s okay,” she said, “Because that’s how you get what you want.”

It’s the New Year, and here’s where all the soon-to-be broken resolutions start to form. You make promises to yourself countless times that “this will be it” and “tomorrow will be the beginning.” Then, you look outside and see blankets of snow covering the ground and the thermometer reading in the single digits. How on earth am I supposed to get healthy in this weather?

It was love at first sight. Late one summer's evening, a beautiful branch line gave me my first view of St. Ives harbour. The lights twinkled, the beach below the station stretched out and the sea was an almost iridescent blue. That was more than half a century ago when I was a teenager on a school trip to the Cornish resort, but I was hooked and have returned regularly.

Starting her career at the budding age of fifteen, Fiona’s parents shied her away from the encapsulating entertainment industry. Instant success on her first show catapulted her into ferocious fame and her growth was unstoppable. “I was possibly very privileged and sheltered while growing up,” Fiona says, “lacking the exposure and ability to explore the world and other cultures.” Her father – a strong creative influence in her life, impressed a love of architecture upon her. “I grew up with creatives and libraries of architecture bibles. I was fascinated by design, philosophical elements of structure and the emotions and engineering behind functional art pieces,” she shares.

I know I am going to like this place as I pull up to reception. There is a swing hanging from the oak tree outside. The only thing stopping me from jumping on is my equal eagerness to get to the pool, lined with orange umbrellas and sparkling in the sunlight. I can already feel Carmel Valley Ranch bringing my inner child out to play. To celebrate the reopening of Highway 1, I took the coastal route up to Carmel Valley, with plans to stop in Big Sur on the return trip.

With an aesthetic that was influenced by a variety of people, places and experiences, New York born and based interior designer Sasha Bikoff first fell in love with design while studying fine arts at the American University in Paris. “I was living in the St. Germain area next to all the famous antique dealers and would visit all the fabric showrooms. I loved interior design and became very curious about it and would spend weekends at the marché aux puces,” she notes. Further exposure came when she was introduced to the “shabby chic London vintage looks” of then-boyfriend’s mother and designer Sera Hersham-Loftus and a spark was lit. After her return to the States and a three-year stint at Chelsea’s Gagosian Gallery where she found herself advising clients on their décor during an art installation, the self-taught interior designer opened up her own firm, Sasha Bikoff New York.

‘Check out how amazing that looks,’ I blurt out to TOQUE Partner Cai Sepulis when we turn off King onto Queen Street in downtown Kitchener. ‘It’s like the lane is alive.’ Straight ahead of us, about halfway up the block between King and Duke Streets, warm light and the sounds of live music spill out into the darkness of Queen from the alleyway between the Vidyard building and its next door neighbour. Goudie’s Lane. Our final destination on what has been a most amazing evening – downtown Kitchener’s annual #DTKPatioCrawl.
