Introducing the Curio Cabin: Maximalist Decor
The Curio Cabin: Bringing Magic of the Imaginarium into the Home
The Curio Cabin is our new maximalist decor blog. It operates as an extension of the of the Magic Trout Imaginarium, in that is encapsulates the same vision and feeling of magic and whimsy, except in a new form and venue: home decor.
The Next Era
For those of you who haven't been along this whole ride, the Magic Trout Imaginarum name comes from an Artist in Communities Residency Zee participated in and organized with artists Emily Smith and Francoise Thibault in partnership with the Vancouver Parks Board in 2014. The residency took place in a tiny house Zee built during a 9 week workshop at the Vancouver Community Laboratory the same year.
An except from City of Vancouver website describes the project:
The project was wildly successful engaging over 1000 community members and 16 community groups in activities that connect neighbours and explore the natural environment as as a source of creative inspiration.
Follow the Imaginarium's Head Imagineer Zee Kesler, as she embarks on a new project documenting the transformation of her rustic cabin on Gabriola Island into curiosity museum and moody maximalist dream home.
Throughout this project, you'll see felting used in fun and expressive ways integrated in home decor through, decorations, lighting and more!
