Opposite ends of the spectrum

Both of these homes have been featured lately in Residence magazine and I wanted to blog one, then the other, no the first one, but what about the second....so what the hell I'll blog both. Both homes are gorgeous, the first because of the soothing and earthy neutral palette and the second because of the bold colour scheme and modern vibe. I want my home to look like the first, and then I need to win the lottery so the cottage I would then buy could look like the second. :) (Photos by Carl Dahlstedt)

Michael Penney

Michael Penney is a decorator, stylist, blogger, former magazine editor at Canadian House & Home and is a soon-to-be shop owner. He is also a big fan of DIY projects, including dip-dye drapes that he did for H&H mag that I fell in love and have been wanting to do ever since.

I have been a fan of his work for some time as he's clearly got a great eye for design, creates relaxed yet sophisticated spaces and I think I can safely say that the photos below are going to make you want to start re-decorating!
