blumenstudio

I wasn't sure what to blog today as it has been yet another busy Saturday. Tuesday my husband and I had taken the day off work and gone to Montreal furniture shopping where we found an awesome highboy for Jeff's dressing room and a credenza for the dining room. Yesterday we headed back to Montreal, picked up the furniture with my parent's SUV and trailer, and drove back home - in the rain. How nerve-wracking! I thought for sure the credenza was going to get soaked and ruined but luckily it survived. I will share them here soon (and the other little things I bought that day). Until then I was wondering what to blog today, when I remembered I had taken some photos the other day that I could share. I was off work Friday as well so after a trip to the dentist and the bank I took a walk down my street to the nearest coffee shop - blumenstudio. This is not your ordinary coffee shop. It also happens to be the coolest flower/plant shop around. 

Owner Kat (along with Nathan) has been a floral designer for almost 20 years. She grew up in Germany and moved to Ottawa 12 years ago, and opened this shop in 2011. She has an amazing eye for design and creates the most spectacular floral arrangements and her selection of plants is to die for. I have been in the shop a couple of times now since moving to this 'hood and each time I want to leave with...everything. I think I will be stopping in for a latte and maybe a plant on a regular basis. You should too if you are in the Parkdale/Civic Hospital area.

More from Catlin Stothers 

It has been a while since Jo shared some spaces created by Montreal interior designer Catlin Stothers....and when I spotted this one I had to share. It is modern rustic cabin at its finest. The colour palette is bloody FANTASTIC. And wow - the floors! I love every bit of this - except the snow. ;)

Grassroots Design

Along with this post comes a little story. The other day I noticed some fabulous interior photography by Ottawa photographer and the king of lighting Justin Van Leeuwen. He mentioned the spaces were created by local interior designer and small renos firm Grassroots Design. While perusing this firm's impressive website, I noticed they are located a few blocks from my house. Then while snagging some photos for this post, I discovered that the first 5 photos of this post are the kitchen and bathroom of the house next door to me! (The brick seen through the window in photo #4 is the side of my house). CRAZY! Anyway, their kitchens and bathrooms are the bees knees. LOVE!

Montana Labelle

Montana Labelle is a young interior designer from Toronto whose work I really admire. Her aesthetic is largely influenced by fantasy, luxury and most importantly, fashion (her mom is a fashion stylist) and it is all about lushness, glamour and intrigue. Her 700 sq ft Toronto condo is featured in the first 9 photos - what a fabulous home! Skulls, fur, zebra, quirky art...what's not to love?!
