Entries in living room (40)
I thought I'd do a little something different today since I spent just about all day yesterday organizing parts of my house, taking photos, sorting through the photos and tweaking the photos. (Amazing how time consuming this ends up being). I acquired a few things recently so I thought I'd share them with you. Keep in mind I still have plans to tear this house down in the (hopefully) near future but in the meantime I still need to keep myself amused with decorating it.
I did a little something in my dressing room which you can check out over on closetrivalry.com. On the same wavelength as that little project, there are a couple of new additions to my living room. First, I decided that I was tired of not really having anything over the sofa (it's been 5 or 6 years) and since I have next to no space to display anything in this house, I decided to stick a shelf there. My husband took me out to a lumber yard and we found some gorgeous raw edge planks of wood. We bought 3 and used 2 in the dressing room and one over the sofa. My vintage cameras have been in storage for a while so I pulled those out and for some reason I like displaying lightbulbs (but I need a better bowl) so there we have it - a little display of stuff and things.
It's been a few months since Vancouver/Victoria interior designer Kyla Bidgood shared her redo of a tech company's office with us, and now she's back with another project. This time it's a really fun interior. I recently completed a residence for a young family of four. I worked with homeowners Meagan & Sebastian Smitsdorff to create a space that reflect their personalities while utilizing some of their existing furniture pieces. Bright colours, vintage nostalgic accents, and custom built-ins enhance the living/dining areas, while keeping spaces functional and durable for daily use by their two young boys. These spaces are so awesome for a family - bright and energetic, liveable and functional. Kyla included some before photos so you can really see the transformation.
