Colour, colour, colour

Yes I'm craving colour at the moment. Great big dollops of saturated colour. So I love these shots styled by Jakob Solgren. Sometimes quirky, sometimes bold, perhaps a little subtle, perhaps not. Great ideas to steal too. Loving the torn artwork in the first photo. The pink dresser juxtaposed with the psychedelic green dining room. Turquoise and chinese red nursery? Just a few calming Scandi white rooms too from real rooms, family rooms to some just a little more haute. All I know is I think though I need a pink plaid rug for my sofa and one can never have enough kilims ...pink kilims!

If you like this post wait till you see what Kim has coming later today :)

Marjon Hoogervorst

It's already been a long week (is it seriously only Wednesday??!!) and I really need a little pick-me-up to get me through the day. I thought some goodies from the portfolio of Dutch photographer Marjon Hoogervorst would do the trick. LURVLY! (Thanks for the link sis!)

Jessica Thomas

  

From conception to completion art and photo director Jessica Thomas loves colour. Hey she loves maximalism and rooms as comfortable as a favourite old sweater! It's casual yet stylish, never precious but always pretty. It's what so many of us want to come home to. She certainly knows her job ... to create the dream.

Reader's parents' home

Here is an email we received from Sue: "I'm writing because I wanted to show you a home created by two of the most creative, eclectic, quirky and capable people I've ever met- my Mom and Dad. They have recently finished their fantastic house near Bancroft, Ontario; a house they designed, built and decorated almost all by themselves. And what's the first thing they did when it was finished? Put it up for sale, of course. There are more home design projects ahead! This is the link for the webpage they created for potential buyers." This is pretty much my dream home. SERIOUSLY. It is absolutely gorgeous. The spaciousness, the cabin feel to it, tons of WATERFRONT land, the large plank pine floors, a bunkie (!!!)....I could on and on. Instead, I'll show you a whole bunch of photos of it so you can see what I mean.

*the foyer features an antique tin ceiling*
*The lower level is built around a sunken living room with a long bench seat in the window for reading and afternoon siestas. A wood stove is the warm heart of the house; a stone floor provides rustic character. The space is open to the studio level above.*
*The cabinets in the custom kitchen are recycled antique chests-of-drawers, buffets and display cases, refinished and integrated into counters and an island with butcher-block tops.*

Kathryn Tyler and Linea Studio

Hello Tuesday! And hello gorgeous house. Simply stunning interior design by Kathryn Tyler of Linea Studio. Good gracious me I'm smitten. Bespoke sits with design classic and feels comfortable with vintage. Throw in wide open spaces, concrete floors, white walls and a workspace/studio to die for I'll gladly move in. I'm trying to figure out how I can get that staircase storage into my own home. It's contemporary. It's distinctive and it's fab!
