Saul Zaik house

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2015 by KiM

I have always wanted to live in house with mid-century architecture, and I have a huge girl crush on Jessica Helgerson, so I absolutely had to share this home. This project was a thorough remodel of a 1950s house by prominent Portland architect Saul Zaik. We thoroughly reworked the interior floor plan, relocating the master bedroom and bathroom to the rear of the house, creating a mudroom, office, and laundry room, changing the proportions of a family room that had been expanded and was out of scale with the other rooms, upgrading the windows throughout, and vaulting the ceilings in the addition.

It’s pretty clear. There are cool people in my sleeper government city of Ottawa (I can poke fun because 1 – I have lived here my entire life 2 – I am one of those boring public servants). I recently discovered the cool people of Clear.,  an interior design firm who created modern spaces that are spunky and magazine-worthy. I want all of these bathrooms. Gorg! And while admiring all of the gold bathroom hardware, does anyone know of a sweet gold/brass kitchen faucet I should consider for my kitchen redo? I am having a REALLY hard time finding one.

Is your day as crazy busy as mine? Come join me here. We’ll chill… at least until the next phone call/customer/request from family member. Perfect. By Australian landscape designer William Dangar.

Bohemian rhapsody

A boho beauty. That’s how I’d describe this TriBeCa, New York loft by Deborah French Designs. A celebration of colour and pattern, layered with texture, patina and lovingly collected curios. Life was meant to be lived to the full and how could you not in such a wonderfully exuberant home.

More from Heide Hendricks

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2015 by KiM

Yesterday I had featured a couple of homes that had been decked out by Connecticut interior designer Heide Hendricks (here and here). Today I thought I would share a bit more of her designs because I am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy her traditional spaces. Must be because she gives them a bit of an edge with coloured trim, vintage light fixtures and mid-century chairs. The result is eclectic and unexpected and spaces I would absolutely enjoy hanging out in.
