Too much?

I am a huge fan of industrial touches in a home....but sometimes people should quit while they're ahead. I found this apartment on a site from Israel called bvd, and while I love some of the finishes, all in all it's pretty much a prison cell, but a bit larger. I'm sure there are some men out there who are saying "WOW - that's COOL!!" but I'm sure that sentiment would be short-lived after living here for a while. Your thoughts?

Some love from Israel

I found a little surprise in my mailbox this afternoon when I got home from work and I am happy to now be able to share it with you all. My home is featured in the latest issue of Nisha, an interior design magazine from Israel. Of course, I can't read it but I'm sure it's a great read (LOL) and it's filled with so many of my photos which is cool considering I am an aspiring photographer (who should really take a course or 3). They sent me a PDF copy a while back which I'll share instead of attempting to scan the actual article. A huge thanks to Shira for including me in this issue. It's such a great feeling (and kind of shocking to be honest) to know that people around the world appreciate the work I've put into my little Ottawa pad.


Branching out

A reader named Sarah emailed us recently asking that we branch out and post some non-US and non-Swedish content. I said no problem - but considering neither Jo nor I are American or Swedish, we don't go out specifically looking for content from those countries. That just seems to be what we happen upon on our random Google searches when looking for blog content. So when I asked Sarah if she knew of any sites we could refer to for the blog she suggested a site from Israel, bvd.co.il. I found tons of blog-worthy content (although I unfortuntely don't know Hebrew) so thank you Sarah! One home that was featured on the site really caught my eye. Turns out it has a bit of a Swedish/Scandinavian country vibe to it. LOL. It's SOOO pretty and is perfect decor for the cottage I wished I owned. White walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, big white squishy couches, small touches of pale colours...what's not to love? (Forget the interior...I was sold on the palm tree out front. We don't get those up here).



Kitchens from Israel

Meirav from Israel sent me an email yesterday. She's a designer who's worked in textile design, and is now working with her husband designing rural style kitchens and furniture. The workmanship is AMAZING! Look for more photos on their website (it's in Hebrew).
