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.

Stalking a home in Toronto

Thanks to Lorena for sending us this link to quite a spectacular home currently for sale in Toronto. For those that don't know alot about real estate in this city...it is very pricey (maybe not New York prices but they are among the highest in Canada, beat only by Vancouver). This 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 20ft wide row house (you only get the middle - this home is actually 3 units) has views of a big, ugly apartment building at the front AND at the back, and is almost 4 million. WHOA. But the architecture and attention to detail throughout are fabulous and the homeowners have quite a unique art collection. And I am swooning over the flooring throughout most of the home. AND the fact that there's a fireplace in the foyer.
