Landscaping dreams by Considered Design Inc.

People all over Instagram are talking about the arrival of spring, something we here in godforsaken Ottawa cannot even begin to think about at least until the end of March. While wanting to curl up under a duvet and die, I stumbled upon the portfolio of Julian Pattison and Alison Magill who make up Considered Design Inc., a landscape architecture firm located in Vancouver (which happens to have WAY milder weather than Ottawa...JERKS!). I like my landscaping modern and simple, with repetition and a casual vibe. And that is exactly what these guys do. I would give anything to turn my bland-and-never-been-landscaped-in-80-years backyard into this first outdoor oasis. Stashing this away for future reference. *LOVE*

Once a garage, now a studio

In my backyard is a detached garage. It is tilting to one side and is a dumping ground for all sorts of crap. And we can't even fit our car in it. I would give ANYTHING to turn it into something this incredible. This backyard writer's studio was created from the conversion of a 100 sq ft garage. WHOA.

Pretty in white and pastels

As much as I love dark colours, this home is really beautiful in white and pretty pastels. Without a doubt it is easy on the eye and must be so relaxing to come home to after a long day. ++Scandinavian cool++. Design: Laura Melling and Portico Design Group, photos: WTFU.

A modern chalet in Quebec by BOOM TOWN

In the midst of a cedar forest on Lac Gate in Quebec is this wonderful modern chalet designed by Montréal-based architecture firm BOOM TOWN. It is absolutely stunning inside and out. I can imagine enjoying the lake and the outdoor spaces in the summer and hunkering down and hibernating in style and comfort in the winter. (Photos: Angus McRitchie)
