A modern eclectic lakeside home in British Columbia

I can't think of a sweeter spot to spend the summers and enjoying the beautiful weather in British Columbia. What was once a tired lakeside bungalow filled with peeling wallpaper and shag carpet now stands out in the otherwise rustic neighborhood as a modern eclectic oasis. Situated in the quaint town of Cultus Lake, the cabin was fully renovated and refurbished by the home owners and decorated by the Plaidfox Studio team. Elements such as wallpaper, salvaged wood, and aluminum panels where added to give the home a more casual, yet designed feel. By request of the owners, we added only elements that were unique and heavily curated. Elements such as the vintage photography throughout the home were found in the local archives by the Plaidfox team and printed on aluminum panels - each telling the history of the home and its neighborhood. Working with an existing, unusual floor plan and stunning views, the decor and finishes were added to enhance the lakeside experience rather than just to blend in. Bolder, more fun pieces throughout the cabin help to drive home the relaxed lakeside feel the young family wanted. Unpretentious elements mixed with high design and artful touches is what gives this mid-century, industrial home its modern flair.

Island House 

Pardon me please. I know it's only Tuesday. I know I shouldn't feel the need for a virtual getaway this early in the week. I should at least make it to hump day but I can't. I wish I could escape for real to this beautiful house right on the beach. Simple luxury, an amazing location on the isolated Indonesian island of Gili Meno just a fast boat from Bali, no cares or worries except for sand between the toes. Crusoe House via The Island Houses.

Dreaming of summer

Soon. I know it won't be too far away. I just have to make it through another month then spring will slide into summer. Days in the sun, the taste of salt in the air, sand squeaking underfoot, waves slapping the beach in my sleep. Until hot sunny days are actually here I'll keep my summer dream alive with these photos of a bijoux holiday bolthole in Provincetown by interior designer Glenn Ban.
