Depth and reflection

Brazilian architect/designer Gisele Taranto went a little cray cray at this year's Casa Cor design competition. Lab LZ by GT is this space consisting of 3 sectors: lounge, working and library. And all of them are set upon a suspended glass floor filled with mirror shards in the space between the existing subfloor and the glass...thus bringing together the concept of depth and reflection. Now that's creative. I don't think I could live with a floor like that but what an interesting concept! (The leather Lego sofa from estudiobola is fantastic!)

A church conversion in London

Yes folks, it is another church conversion here on DTI, because Jo and I love a good conversion and churches have such incredible, dramatic architecture. This church is 19th century with a gothic vibe, and features 4 bedrooms each with their own bathrooms, a specially commissioned kitchen, hand painted columns, gloriously huge arched windows, blackened oak herringbone floor (dying over this!!) and a small courtyard. This is by far one of my favourite church conversions we have featured. A new location on the Shoot Factory roster.

Place Victor Hugo

Is there a point in time when owning a home with chevron hardwood floors this breathtaking that you eventually stop staring at them with a stupid grin on your face? Doubt it. Parisian apartment again by REV Architecture.

Patterned tiles on kitchen floors

Since I have patterned tile on the brain, I thought I would do a round-up of patterned tiles on kitchen floors. Because if this is what I end up going with, I am SO EXCITED!!

Thoughts on new flooring

Instead of a pets on furniture post this morning, you're getting my thoughts on my flooring situation because I am short on submissions once again (if you'd like to submit photos please send them to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net). I had Friday off so the husband and I went tile shopping AGAIN. Ottawa seems to be very limited in anything renovation related, so I have been having a hard time finding anything even remotely interesting, and every store seems to carry the same products. I am desperate to get the flooring situation in my house dealt with soon because I feel like that should be the next step before anything else I tackle. To recap, we are looking to rip up all the hardwood in the vestibule, foyer, living and dining room, and the tile in the kitchen. I want to tile the vestibule, foyer and kitchen and do a rustic looking hardwood in the living and dining rooms. Here are some photos I took when we first moved in of the foyer and vestibule:

Here is the kitchen which leads to the door to the backyard. In the photo above the dining room is to the left with the kitchen behind it, and living room to the right. 

My tiny kitchen. TINY. 

We would tile down to the back door, and this is the little hallway where our fridge resides in a bump-out on the back porch. Strange, I know. 

The kitchen walls have since been painted in Farrow & Ball's Stiffkey Blue, the hardware and lighting have been replaced with brass and we've been waiting almost 2 months for our freaking brass faucet to arrive. 

Farrow & Ball kindly sent me a roll of Anime wallpaper to line my glass cabinet...but since they sent me an entire roll, I was thinking of also wallpapering the wall with the archway leading to the back door.
