Progress in my dining room (and some new goodies)

I have been trying to enjoy summer, especially since it is winding down and frigid temperatures are right around the corner (it makes me nauseous typing that). Funny, my younger sister and her family, my husband and I and our parents were hanging out in my parents pool on the weekend talking about maybe going to Hawaii, and our typical trip to Puerto Vallarta in February...and we started laughing because it was 35 C out and we are already talking about what we plan to do to survive another Ottawa winter. Anyway, I have been spending time at their pool instead of getting much done around the house but given how much we love this place, I think we will be here a while and will have tons of time. We did venture to Montreal one day a couple of weeks ago and managed to score the coolest credenza/sideboard and light fixture for our dining room. Gawd I love them both!

The night before we went to Montreal I mentioned on Instagram that if anyone had any tips for Mtrl shopping to shoot them my way. Jennifer, my saviour, suggested checking out Benjamin Curran's wares. Am I ever glad I gave him a call to check out his storage space! We scored this amazing vintage walnut credenza with a Brutalist pattern for an awesome price, along with a matching highboy for my husband's dressing room. Good bye craptastic metro shelving! I am so excited to finally have a dining room again with proper storage for dishes and whatever else I don't want in the kitchen. 

I pimped out the top of the credenza in a white and black colour scheme...for now. I always change things up. 

Vintage West German vases, Green Light District Wonki Ware dessert bowls, platter and pasta bowls (my favourite dishes of all time), small bowl bowl by Don Cormier from General Fine Craft, Catherine Holm bowl from Samantha Howard Vintage, Tillandsia plant from blumenstudio, short candleholder by Normann Copenhagen from The Modern Shop, tall candleholder by John Ward from General Fine Craft

House in House

An artist's workshop within a two storey home. A little house tucked within a void, opened and closed to the outside courtyard by the existing sliding window. Space for creating, for storing, for display, for chilling out, for sitting, for growing. By Japanese architects MAMM Design.

An artist's home and gallery

I had to share this home as well from Urbis Magazine. It is a 1920's 80m2 bungalow in Island Bay, Wellington, and is the home and gallery of artist Max Patté. it is quite clear, from the moment you set foot on the property, that Max is a sculptor. It is quaint and quirky and cool - my kind of home.
