A Coquitlam townhome

If this Coquitlam townhome was set up as a model home or if it was a new sale listing, it would be snapped up in an instant. Vancouver's Fox Design Studio did an incredible job here. They used the same colour palette of grey and white with black and yellow/gold accents throughout that is cohesive and flows beautifully. The bold punch of orange in the powder room is an unexpected and welcome touch. Midcentury colors, playful furniture pieces, punchy artwork and not-so-shy wall treatments give this detail heavy space a not-so-serious vibe. Think Palm Springs, but in fall-formal wear.

Working on a Saturday

So starkly elegant. So, so restrained. Like the essence of good taste, distilled, concentrated and stoppered in a crystal bottle. Open it and your head hurts. A hairdressing salon with Art Deco references and beautiful bespoke fittings and furniture by Pietro Russo. Of course the shots are of the space sans clutter, towels and hair clippings but then again such an exclusive salon would have a bevy of apprentices at the ready to sweep and zhush.

Home & Delicious

I love to start the working week with a virtual holiday have you noticed? Now if I could only find a way to actually make it to Reykjavík, Iceland to stay at Home & Delicious, in one of their three beautifully refurbished apartments in a quiet residential area in the heart of the city, then I'd be beyond happy. Only problem is I can't make up my mind which apartment to stay in. I'll have to try all three. Via Welcome Beyond.

Pattern

I've got a bathroom thing going on at the moment. Love the way the tiles have been laid in this shower designed by Michael Bechara.

Gill Renlund spaces of note

I looooove this kitchen! The stainless cabinets with marble countertop is SO hot. I adore the vintage lights over the sink, and the beverage station with hanging wine glasses for easy access. I even dig the tree on the table - distracts you from the fact that there is no light over the table.

What a cool space - the random finishes on the ceiling and the peeling wall, together with the painted floor and chalky grey wall is all about subtle textures and sheens. And I may be nuts, but maybe a huge skull painted on the wall is not such a bad idea. :)

This photo makes me want to cry, the winter here has been so cold and snowy and BRUTAL. But I leave for Mexico in one week, so there's that. But right now I would love to be sitting on that porch with a glass of wine.
