A modern home in Hintonburg

I have driven by this home in Ottawa's Hintonburg neighbourhood several times and always loved how simple the exterior is. For an infill project amidst a slew of very old brick homes, this seems to blend in more than one would expect. I was also dying to know what the inside looked like, and now I know, because I discovered it was designed by built, and featured on their website. The architecture is simple and modern, with a WOW kitchen and some really cool bathrooms. Love it!! (Photos I think by Justin Van Leeuwen)

A West Vancouver home

I wanted to share another project by Fox Design Studio, this time it is a home located in West Vancouver. This colour palette is similar to the last with the addition of blue, which only totally fitting for a home with ocean views. Full home renovation and redecoration for an empty nester's second home. Sited on a rocky outcropping overlooking the Pacific, this large, east-coast inspired home features ocean inspired tones layered with classic luxury patterns and finishes.

A Coquitlam townhome

If this Coquitlam townhome was set up as a model home or if it was a new sale listing, it would be snapped up in an instant. Vancouver's Fox Design Studio did an incredible job here. They used the same colour palette of grey and white with black and yellow/gold accents throughout that is cohesive and flows beautifully. The bold punch of orange in the powder room is an unexpected and welcome touch. Midcentury colors, playful furniture pieces, punchy artwork and not-so-shy wall treatments give this detail heavy space a not-so-serious vibe. Think Palm Springs, but in fall-formal wear.

The Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market is back!

It's that time of the year again! The The Ottawa Antique & Vintage Show is back at The Fieldhouse at Carleton University this weekend and my husband (Daff Design) will have a booth there again this year for his vintage updated radios (he has sooooo many this time - and I love them all!) so I will be keeping him company, taking photos and shopping my little heart out! The show was pretty rad last year, and there are some new vendors this year that I am totally stoked to scope out. 

Here are just a few of the radios my husband will be selling there (all previously non-working - he guts them and puts in really good speakers, an amp and Bluetooth for a rocking sound)

Nyla Free (again)

I spotted a few new photos in the portfolio of Calgary interior designer Nyla Free since my last feature on her work a few years. Her spaces are bold and fun so I had to share, especially because I covet that closet at the end of this post. (Photos by Lori Andrews, Avenue Mag)
