For those of you, like myself, who wondered what had happened to Cobi Ladner, former editor for many years at Canadian House and Home, I have good news. You can now follow Cobi and her impeccable sense of style and design on her new site COBI. It says on the site, "After an enormously successful tenure at H&H, Cobi is now developing her own brand concept in the home and lifestyle arena. Her connection with readers and consumers is highly valued and unmatched in the marketplace and she is thrilled about re-engaging her loyal fans with a new vision of her own." I, for one, am very happy to see Cobi back in the media doing what she does best - creating beautiful spaces and details for real people. 

I love this, straight from the Cobi site - what do you think?

Here are the 6 things I (Cobi) believe to be true: No.1 Money does not equate taste. No.2 Good taste does not equate comfort. No.3 Design without soul is meaningless. No.4 Boring is as bad as a mistake. No.5 Trends have nothing to do with loving one’s home. No.6 People are like birds. Nesting is a natural and instinctive activity and should feel comforting and joyful, not stressful. If we listen to our instincts honestly, we get the best results.
