Cabin in a mountain

Love this 160 square metre cabin located literally in a mountainside. This cabin blends with nature both inside and out, but is unexpectedly furnished with modern Dutch designs (plates, cups, vases and lamps by Hella Jongerius, blankets and pillows Scholten & Baijings, lamps designed by Marcel Wanders, carpets of Claudy Jongstra, and my favourite Danish chair - Papa Bear by Hans Wegner).

Not your average A-frame

I have always thought A-frame cabins where the cutest things ever. I am a fan of the graphic shape but this A-frame "cabin" goes above and beyond. This is quite the minimalist and modernist take on your typical A-frame structure. I freaking love it - especially the exaggerated peak. (Thanks to my BIL for the link to this William O'Brien Jr. designed cabin!)

Reader's parents' home

Here is an email we received from Sue: "I'm writing because I wanted to show you a home created by two of the most creative, eclectic, quirky and capable people I've ever met- my Mom and Dad. They have recently finished their fantastic house near Bancroft, Ontario; a house they designed, built and decorated almost all by themselves. And what's the first thing they did when it was finished? Put it up for sale, of course. There are more home design projects ahead! This is the link for the webpage they created for potential buyers." This is pretty much my dream home. SERIOUSLY. It is absolutely gorgeous. The spaciousness, the cabin feel to it, tons of WATERFRONT land, the large plank pine floors, a bunkie (!!!)....I could on and on. Instead, I'll show you a whole bunch of photos of it so you can see what I mean.

*the foyer features an antique tin ceiling*
*The lower level is built around a sunken living room with a long bench seat in the window for reading and afternoon siestas. A wood stove is the warm heart of the house; a stone floor provides rustic character. The space is open to the studio level above.*
*The cabinets in the custom kitchen are recycled antique chests-of-drawers, buffets and display cases, refinished and integrated into counters and an island with butcher-block tops.*

Another project by Charles de Lisle

Not too long ago I blogged about a mid-century style California ranch designed by Charles de Lisle. I find his work and the photographs in his portfolio so impressive and since I'm taking a lazy holiday week here on the blog while gallavanting around Prince Edward Island, I thought I'd feature another of his projects. This time a mountain retreat in Montana. I wouldn't mind a little vacation here either.

BARK

I went to the Ottawa Home and Garden Show yesterday and despite finding most of it boring, there was one thing I saw that made it worthwhile. There was this incredible little cabin set up called the ATC (all-terrain cabin), designed using the standard ISO shipping container as the basis for the structure and outfitted totally with Canadian design and technology. The container unfolds to give 480sf of living space. It was designed by BARK, a British Columbia registered non-profit collective of designers and businesses committed to raising the profile of Canadian design and ingenuity internationally. I want one - BAD. And I would have taken my own photos of it but there must have been half a million people crowded around it. Luckily their website had some great photos (except they don't have one of the cutest little bedroom ever, with a murphy bed).
