Entries in interior designer (1676)


Just the tonic

A little bit Hollywood Regency. A little bit midcentury glam. A little bit calm and classic with a fresh bite of colour. It's about easy elegance, personality and fun. Like a lively interiors tonic this Sunset Plaza home by LA-based interior designer Ames Ingham has put some pep in my weekend.

An addition and renovation in Wellington Village

I wanted to feature this home a few months ago when its interior designer Veronica Martin had contacted me but I had to wait for its appearance in the spring issue of Ottawa magazine. Now that it has hit the streets, here it is! I love this addition and renovation of an 80 year old home in the Wellington Village neighbourhood of this fine city of Ottawa. It brings some modern amenities and sophistication to an older home (that coincidentally looks like it may have been designed by the same architect as my home!) while keeping the stunning features like leaded glass windows and curved ceilings intact. The new kitchen is an absolute gem - the simple white glossy cabinetry is taken to another level with the black hardware making a subtle graphic impact. And lawd half mursey that light fixture over the dining table! *SWOON* Fantastic job Veronica! So glad to see someone bringing style and class to this city. (Photos: Urszula Muntean Photography)

Carla Lane Interiors - Santa Monica home

Before I introduce this post, I just wanted to say a quick THANK YOU to everyone who sent donations towards my 3 feral cats' vet bills. Once this post published Georgie, Frankie and Bernie will be at the vets getting everything done - checkups, tested for diseases, vaccinations, and spaying (if Georgie isn't pregnant - but both my husband and I think she is :( ) and neutering. If the estimate I was given is accurate I should have enough to foot the bill, so I can worry about the kitties instead of the finances. I really appreciate everyone's help. Here's hoping today goes smoothly! I will put updates on Instagram. (P.S. I have a few pets on furniture entries - keep on sending them in if you want this series to continue! kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net)

Now onto the subject at hand - a fabulously designed house in Santa Monica by LA-based Carla Lane Interiors. This home is simply decorated but packs a punch. Timeless spaces that are comfortable and clearly made to be lived in and loved. Well, I freaking LOVE that mirror over the fireplace. It is the perfect subtle graphic statement for that fireplace.
