Eye on you

I knew I had seen the cabinet with the eyes before. I had admired it in a post by Kim showcasing the photographs of Janis Nicolay. There were only two shots of this space. I wanted more and finally more is what I have. It's the design studio of Vancouver interior designer Peter Wilds. White on white with a mix of traditional, quirky, modern and classic. Knowing how designers change their studio surrounds on a regular basis I wonder what it looks like now?

Reconnecting with Brian Paquette - part 1

It has been a little while since Jo shared some projects by Seattle interior designer Brian Paquette (here and here), and it seems he has been busy lately so I thought I would share a couple of his latest projects. This one is a home in Victoria, B.C. and has a bit of a gentlemen's club vibe going on. I dig that style for all its leather (chesterfields!) and dark colours. OH YEAH.

My first yacht

On the blog that is. I'm still waiting for the boat in real life. If I did have a yacht I'd have one just like this refurbed 1961 cruiser by Peter Wilds Design. Warm polished wood, gleaming metal, sophisticated black and white. Pass me my boat shoes and my captain's cap. It's love at first sight.

Another project by Fox Design Studio

I featured a couple of projects last month by Vancouver's Fox Design Studio (a Coquitlam townhouse and a West Vancouver home) and I have another small project to share. Love the mix of modern, industrial and cabin-esque vibes. They really rocked the use of colour here. Full redecoration and partial renovation of a Coal Harbour townhome. We got the opportunity to tackle a smaller project for a Vancouver couple that let us play with color and texture throughout their luxury townhome. Grasscloth, marble, sheepskins and some salvage wood chevron all played key roles in creating this curated space.

An addition and renovation in Wellington Village

I wanted to feature this home a few months ago when its interior designer Veronica Martin had contacted me but I had to wait for its appearance in the spring issue of Ottawa magazine. Now that it has hit the streets, here it is! I love this addition and renovation of an 80 year old home in the Wellington Village neighbourhood of this fine city of Ottawa. It brings some modern amenities and sophistication to an older home (that coincidentally looks like it may have been designed by the same architect as my home!) while keeping the stunning features like leaded glass windows and curved ceilings intact. The new kitchen is an absolute gem - the simple white glossy cabinetry is taken to another level with the black hardware making a subtle graphic impact. And lawd half mursey that light fixture over the dining table! *SWOON* Fantastic job Veronica! So glad to see someone bringing style and class to this city. (Photos: Urszula Muntean Photography)
