A pretty kitchen

Happy Friday everyone! It's Victoria day weekend here and that means getting to someone's cottage (in my case my little sister's), eating a ton of hamburgers and drinking our faces off. We Canadians know how to celebrate the first long weekend of summer let me tell ya. Anyhoo, I have a ton of stuff to get done so I can find some time to relax and enjoy the hot weather we're getting (BRING IT ON!!!!), so before I do that, how about a gorgeous kitchen (etc.) from Natalie of Nest Design Studio (based in Toronto).

Miami loft

Check out this swanky pad by Toronto's Prototype Design Lab: Miami Loft was designed for a celebrity client. This residence has incredible spanning views of the local beach front on two sides and has a bespoke quality to its interior design. Juxtaposition between the more traditional design features and the more modern and sleek components such as the bedroom media unit and master bathroom vanity come together elegantly in this project.  This characteristic also renders the space dreamlike as well as a perfect entertainment space. Every element has been custom designed to the smallest detail to fit the particular needs of our client and his desires and habits. SWEET!!!

Candy Factory Lofts penthouse

I recently stumbled upon the portfolio of Johnson Chou, and architecture and design firm based in Toronto and was very intrigued by this penthouse: Situated in a turn of the century candy factory, this 2700 SF loft penthouse suite was one of Toronto's first residential adaptive re-use projects of its kind. The owner, an avid sportsman with a penchant for traveling to remote areas to camp in the wilderness, requested a residence that evoked, within an urban context, a sense of the landscape he loved so much. What I love about this loft is the blend of modern and rustic elements. That juxtaposition gets me going every time.
