A break...then a new look!

Hey folks. Looks like Jo and I will be taking a break for the rest of the week, something we never EVER do because.....we're launching a new look to the blog!!! All sorts of newness will be part of this launch - a new blog platform, a new colour scheme, a new layout, a new fun logo, a new way or keeping our content organized, and an overall newly improved DTI! Stay tuned for this launch, as we are SO excited about it. It has been a long time coming and we really hope you all like it. 

I thought you might like a teaser. It took alot of back and forth with the developers to get the colours right and after all that I can't even remember what shades we finally decided on but it goes a little something like this....

We got the idea from my recent dining room remodel which I have been working on alot lately and hope to also share soon after the new blog launch. I have a little peek of that too...

See you soon!!!

A fresh and colourful take on traditional

Bright yellow walls, grahic patterned curtains and stripes add some pretty bold and playful touches to this other wise fairly traditional home in California. Julie Goldman of J.Latter Design took things up a notch. Several notches really.

A renovated Paris apartment

I am hopelessly in love with this 110m² apartment in Paris' 9th arrondissement. It makes me desperately want to collect some beni ourain rugs (that I've been avoiding forever because they don't mix well with cat barf), hang a black shag rug on a wall, get husband to build some built-ins and paint them a bold colour, paint a tree mural, get another cat but this time a black and white that's floofy, have some steel and glass walls built somewhere for something....

Quirky with colour and pattern 

I continue to be in awe of the creativity and eclectic use of pattern and colour of Tiffany Duggan. This home is no exception. A lovely, colourful project for a young gentleman on the very picturesque Hillgate Place. Moorish influences, interesting textures and bold colours were used to add character and authenticity to this quirky Notting Hill townhouse.
