redecorating all in stilettos
Michelle Mawby pulls up to the Gucci store at 130 Bloor St. W. on her Vespa scooter wearing a Louis Vuitton helmet, with her Birkin and Vuitton bags draped over the handle bars.
"The helmet is from Paris and the stripe matches the hood of my Vespa," she explains.
Mawby is the only female cast member of seven on Discovery Channel's "green" show Junk Raiders, described as a "bold freecycling experiment" where the participants are required to work with architectural salvage to transform spaces on a tight budget. And she doesn't hesitate to play her "chick" card.
"Sometimes it works in my favour to turn up on sites in stilettos," she laughs. "But I have three pairs of steeltoed boots in pink. Tomboy Tools makes pink steeltoed shoes and pink hard hats."
Mawby is principal designer and founder of Lucid Interior Design and is the recurring design expert on CBC's Steven Chris. Her challenges on Junk Raiders have included transforming an old factory space into a trendy and fully functional boutique loft using only recycled materials on a budget of $5,000.
As a result, Mawby frequents dumpsters and transfer stations on the job. A transfer station is where the garbage is dumped before it is sorted,[url=]michael kors pas cher[/url], and it stinks.
"They sent me because I am the girl," she recalls. "I'd been in a dumpster; I'm not squeamish."
But she did draw the line at salvaging a used mattress.
"I don't advocate transfer stations," she stresses. "The best found stuff is at the side of the road; we used an old locker from a church as a front hall closet. I made a shower stall from vintage church windows and I have hung leaded windows as art. One of my best finds was at a church. I got old oak pews and made them into a dining room table."
Mawby tries on a pair of snakeskin stilettos priced at $1,190 and can actually walk in them.
"I can run in stilettos," she claims.
Mawby has over 400 pairs of shoes. She even took a shoemaking course in London.
She's worked in Toronto for 10 years but has lived and worked in Amsterdam, London, California and Vancouver.
"My husband can empathize; he is a clothes horse who has grown into my shoe habit," she says.
"I have a mythical wall of shoes. I have a big rolling, library ladder but instead of books, I have shoes. Some of them are works of art, pieces of architecture.
"My sister gets all my shoes when I die. Growing up in the Vancouver suburbs, I was always a shoe girl. I didn't wear jeans until Grade 7; I was always dressed beautifully with ribbons in my hair. I don't buy fads and I wear a great shoe with cheap jeans and Tshirt and a good jacket. I love Gucci jackets. My main wardrobe when I work is American Apparel Tshirt and Gap jeans."
Don't forget that important bag.
Mawby shops at Holt's, NetaPorter, Louis Vuitton and vintage stores for dresses.
She got into interior design via a circuitous route. She has a bachelor of arts in English literature and was in advertising before attending design school.
"I love to read; I'm a bit nerdy, I love to learn," Mawby says. "When I moved here, I changed things in my first home. I took walls down, picked all the finishings and found out I loved to draft."
She has designed everything from spas to clothing stores. She doesn't dumpster dive for her clients.
"But we reuse," she says. "Shabby chic started it all. I don't say be 100 per cent recyclable but shop in your house. We all have pieces we love. Mix the old and new: Take five things you love and mix. Redecorate with your own stuff.
"My home is incredibly eclectic. I'm very theatrical; I mix nail heads with piping. I treat my home as an accessory. Every room can have a little animal print but I could end up headtotoe animal print. They are neutrals."
Mawby is not afraid of colour. She has been known to paint a bathroom black.
"I would rather be different than homogenous. Your home should be fun, a bit of whimsy.
"I am influenced by having grown up by water and living overseas," Mawby adds. "Bring indoors out and outdoors in. I'll bring a rug outside when I dine outside. I'm searching for a great country table to use outside. It is casual elegance but you can put your feet up."

China rare earth reserves as the foreign claims? China restrictions on exports of rare earths is intentional manipulation of the international market? The data are given a negative answer, but not for countries to accept. As a foreign ruler, a report America authorities announced last month, gave these protests a retort.
countries for rare earth export restrictions to Chinese pressure
global network reporter Li Liang reported, since 2007, China began to implement the mandatory planning for the production of rare earth, and began to cut rare earth exports. This caused a strong reaction in the United States and Europe and Japan and other western countries, have to "Chinese has vast majority of the world's reserves of rare earth" on the grounds,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], requirements Chinese cancelled export restrictions. But a report America concerned recently introduced that, "China control global rare earth" of the accused is It is sheer fiction.,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], in fact Chinese rare-earth accounted for only 1/3 of global reserves,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the US and Europe also store a lot of rare earth,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but they are "frozen".
USA report exposing China re storage and export the truth
recently, the importer for respective interest,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], has been a strong advocate of "Chinese rare earth three first (reserves,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], production, export volume)", "global rare earth in China", "China monopoly global rare earth supply" and other words,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], will Chinese holding for the rare earth storage power, encourage Chinese continued and increasing current cheap export trends. When China began to restrict the export of rare earth, the long term "earthy price" buy China rare earth country, due to their own interests, and even some space is compressed to be crushed,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], have through various channels to Chinese protest.
according to Japan's Kyodo news and "Sankei Shimbun" and other Japanese media recently reported, third the next day in ministerial high-level economic dialogue will be held in Beijing on the 28 day, Japan will take this opportunity to urge Chinese relaxed restrictions on rare earth exports. And before this, America and Europe have also issued a similar sound. In March this year, USA congressman Mike Kauffman said,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], "Chinese who could American market dominance", called on the government to protest to the Chinese,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and while prices did not buy the rare earth reserves over the next 5 years ago from China soared; in June, the EU issued a report, due to raw materials such as rare earth "to the European Union economic development is of great significance", related industries for Chinese rare earth exports slumped, "pressure will continue to increase". And also for China limits for rare earth materials production and export of steel and other products of the complaint to the WTO.

Absolute advantage that
July 28th, USA energy policy analyst Marc Humphries has submitted to Congress a report entitled "rare earth elements: global supply chain" report,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], a detailed analysis of the relevant legislation of rare earth, rare earth resources in the use of the global supply chain, USA on the earth,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], "Chinese" frequently appeared. It is in the two chapter, "Chinese role" in "Chinese export policy challenge" for the title, and a detailed list of rare earth related data Chinese 2009.
