Kitchen help


Andrika, a Torontonian, emailed asking for some ideas for her kitchen redo. She has white cabinets and can't decide on a wall colour. So I sifted through my photo collection and oddly enough, most of the kitchens I found with white cabinets had white walls. Here are some that I found with some fun colours. The one above is my favourite. LOVE the blue and green colour combination. The icy blue wall is incredible (!!!). If anyone has ideas for Andrika or has a favourite among these photos, leave us your thoughts in a comment. We'd also welcome photos if you think you have a great kitchen wall colour you'd like to share.

Jean Alan

Jean Alan is at home with any style. With a background in film set design this Chicago based interior designer is at home in contemporary with a mid-century twist as she is with Art Noveau or Deco. Luxurious colours and finishes combine with enviable art collections. Kitchens are detailed and family orientated, bathrooms luxe and decadent.

Modern muted masterpiece


If you prefer interiors with colour, you may change your mind. This home of whites and creams is modern, but not cold and uninviting.

Helen Green


Helen Green, a London based interior designer creates these elegant, refined spaces. Restrained but not straight laced these rooms are evocative of the glamorous 30s and 50s. Neutral colours are layered with soft, sensuous textures and pre-war glamour wafts through stylish salons. There is an undeniable luxe ambience combining with the prevailing calm. Relax in a time gone by in these totally contemporary rooms.

Casa Batlló


I want to take a break. I really do. Seems like half of North America is on summer holidays and things are getting a little chilly in Australia. How about Spain? Barcelona? Then the only place we can stay is Casa Batlló the impressive Art Noveau dreamscape conjured up by Antoni Gaudi. Now for a stroll on Las Ramblas. After we'll eat and drink in the late night air.
