Busy day. In a rush. You know the story. I'm fussy. You like to look anyway :) Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's leftovers include a couple of promising houses with a little too much shiny stone, Mr Potato Head prints on a bedroom wall, several trips to the countryside for a getaway, a vine covered warehouse (everything inside must go) and a lovely home where I'm sure the real estate agent pushed all the furniture up against the walls ... "It will make the rooms look bigger in the photos.". Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
Summer is here, it is hot and I LOVE it, and I want to spend every single minute I can outdoors. Being cooped up indoors for 6 months really gets to me. So over this weekend (a long one for us Canadians), enjoy the warmth, the sun and your favourite beverage. I will be heading to my sister's cottage tomorrow to help christen cottage season, but in the meantime you can find me at any one of these locations... ;)
About 7 years ago I did a post titled Tuft love, to share my love for all things tufted. It seems tufted furnishings never really go out of style, and I noticed many spaces lately while doing blog research that featured tufted chairs, headboards, sofas, ottomans etc. I have always loved a little tuft here and there - it amps up the glam factor and makes an otherwise boring piece of furniture more visually appealing and cozy looking. So I thought it was about time to bring back some tuft love.
P.S. A huge thanks to the folks at Domino mag (one of our favourites since it's inception) for including us in their list of the 26 best design blogs - we are among many really awesome blogs so it is really an honour. :-)
Heading out for some well deserved Friday night drinks. The hair comes down and the heels go up. Just because it's time to party after a hard week at work doesn't mean the design inspiration has to stop. There are plenty of ideas to steal from Singapore based The Stripe Collective's redesign and rebranding of Oxwell & Co. Striped back to the bare bones interiors, split treatments on the floors, Victoriana chic and a dash of quirk. Join me for drinks?
Montreal's la SHED architecture is a force to be reckoned with. This group of super talented Canadians create gloriously modern spaces out of old relic homes (and build new, but their transformations are shockingly goooood) and their clean-lined, unpretentious designs are a big hit in my books. I particularly like the stunning white interior cabin in the Laurentians as seen in the first few photos below. I'm going to be keeping me eye on these guys.
