Latest from 3 Fold Design

We received a lovely email today from Page of 3 Fold Design that I wanted to share: "Kim and Jo, you were both so kind to feature our firm on your blog. For a small design firm trying to do modern design in a state where Tuscan is still king is challenging, so thanks so much for the feature. I wanted to email you some pictures of the latest project we photographed for a young couple buying their first townhome and done on a budget. It is possible in this economy to get good design and not spend a fortune." Photos of the living room in this home on a budget are below - love the colour scheme and that ceiling is amazing! Thanks for sharing Page!

Emma Lee


I am always in awe of great photography. Recently I have become very interested in taking photos and LOVE the inspiration of a professional photographer's portfolio. Emma Lee's is exactly the quality I aspire to one day achieve.

I've GOT to point out the photo above. Holy smokes people. It's incredible how such simplicity could be so gorgeous. Those grey walls are perfection. The dark floors and how the white furniture floats on them....I could not love this more.

Catherine Ekström


Fabulous florals, kooky colourful kitchens and a bed that is not too hard, not too soft but just right are all part of the fantasy and fun that is the portfolio of Swedish stylist and set designer Catherine Ekström.

My front door

This is just a quick post to document one of the many MANY things I need to do something about in my house. It's the front door. I have to say it's a pretty nifty looking door, and although the inspector I had in here when I was buying the house said I should replace it with a better door (in terms of being better insulated), I cannot bring myself to do that. You don't find doors like this at Home Depot.


One thing I have to keep in mind is the fact that this door opens right into the living room. So whatever I do to it will have to work with the space. The little windows in the door are unfortunately not glass but plastic, and yellow. Not sure if I should work with that or replace them/cover them up somehow. I found a very inspirational photo here a while back, and can't get it out of my head. How freaking cute is this door?!


I'd love to hear your ideas on what I could do with this blast from the past door.

Timothy Kolk


We shared photographer Timothy Kolk's work back in '07 and there is plenty more eye candy on his website to share with you. Such stunning lighting and I am loving all of the photography as artwork in many of the photos. And I MUST point out the wallpapered door below. I need to replace all the doors in my house (don't get me started on that), and I'm thinking of plain hollow core doors that I could embellish with some trim and either paint or wallpaper. After seeing this photo I'm thinking WALLPAPER.
