Narrowboat home

Perhaps one of the more unusual homes we have featured on Desire to Inspire. This narrowboat conversion is by Dominique Brown (blog here). Built in the 70s, gutted and refitted for a simple onboard life for a young couple, the boat is just 9m long and under 2m wide. The seating pulls out to a double bed. Shelves drop down, the bathroom and wardrobe are behind sliding doors at one end. A simple yet stylish life on the English canals.

Ginger 62

I had to feature a commercial project designed by Beyond Beige that I found on their website - a Vancouver nightclub called Ginger 62. This place is HOT!! (Decorating a dressing room with a vibe similar to this would be fabulous!)

Beyond Beige

Beyond Beige is an award-winning interior design firm located in North Vancouver, BC that was founded by Reisa Pollard in 2003. Rocking contemporary designs that are warm, bright and comfortable yet classy resulting in spaces that are timeless. And I must commend them on the use of a fantastic photographer to shoot their projects (it's shocking how many don't).

Bieke Claessens ... but wait there's more!

More than one string to Belgian photographer Bieke Claessen's bow. Just like there is more to Belgian design that spartan minimalist modern design. How about a softer more traditional take? Ok not soft as in fluffy and frou frou. We all know that the Belgians aren't into soft and fluffy. It's more like a restrained high style from the Low Countries. Still with that light touch that Bieke brings to her lens.

Bieke Claessens

Less is more. No nonsense. Straight up. Restrained. Tightly curated. Minimalist and modern. Clever insight. No need to embellish. As it is. Unencumbered. True and simple. Beautiful but spartan. I'm not just talking about Belgian design. I'm talking about Belgian photographer Bieke Claessens' portfolio.
