Clear.

It's pretty clear. There are cool people in my sleeper government city of Ottawa (I can poke fun because 1 - I have lived here my entire life 2 - I am one of those boring public servants). I recently discovered the cool people of Clear.,  an interior design firm who created modern spaces that are spunky and magazine-worthy. I want all of these bathrooms. Gorg! And while admiring all of the gold bathroom hardware, does anyone know of a sweet gold/brass kitchen faucet I should consider for my kitchen redo? I am having a REALLY hard time finding one.

More from Heide Hendricks

Yesterday I had featured a couple of homes that had been decked out by Connecticut interior designer Heide Hendricks (here and here). Today I thought I would share a bit more of her designs because I am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy her traditional spaces. Must be because she gives them a bit of an edge with coloured trim, vintage light fixtures and mid-century chairs. The result is eclectic and unexpected and spaces I would absolutely enjoy hanging out in.

Working on a Saturday

Chances are if you work in the retail or hospitality industry you work on a Saturday. That wouldn't be so bad if your work place was the Cairdean Estate in Nappa Vallery , South California. Using natural materials and raw textures while referencing the owners' Scottish heritage design firm NICOLEHOLLIS has created a beautifully cohesive range of spaces from wine tasting room to restaurant to bakery to retail space.

A 1929 farmhouse

While on the subject of traditional homes, I thought I would share this 1929 farmhouse designed by, once again, Heide Hendricks. It is exactly the type of home I imagine when I think of life on Prince Edward Island (where my husband is from). I have to show this to my mother-in-law. Maybe she won't think I'm such a nutcase if she sees I blogged this. ;)
