Norwegian inspiration

Before I dash off to another day of craziness at the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market to help with hubby's Daff Design booth, I wanted to share these spaces from Norwegian magazine KK Living that left me drooling all over my keyboard. I particularly adore the home of Line Evensen featured in the photos before the jump - such a wonderfully eclectic mix of styles that is so random it works.

Inside Out and my dream warehouse

Every month an email arrives from Inside Out magazine's Managing Editor Lee Tran Lam and every month I get excited. The sneak peeks from inside the latest issue of the magazine are always amazing. Today she sent my dream home. I have wanted this particular space ever since I first spotted it in a previous incarnation as Lynda Gardener's home. Now it belongs to someone else (boo hoo not me) and I think I love it even more.

This is the home of artist Saskia Folk – whose "pick and mix style" is encapsulated by all the highly original items tucked into her place. There's a couch decked in "country check", a giant ice-cream light guarding the bottom of her stairs, a kitchen island bench made from old basketball flooring and kitchen cabinetry constructed from old meter boxes found in the Australian outback. Styling by Heather Nette King, photography by Derek Swalwell, from March issue of Inside Out.

Saskia you'll have to move out because I'm moving on in! Can't wait to see more in this month's issue out tomorrow. Don't fret if you aren't in Australia though. You can read along on  ZinioGoogle Play,  the Apple Newsstand and Nook.

Rustic and refined

There is nothing I like more than a mixture of rustic and modern styles....so I am totally enamoured with this 112 year old renovated home in Toronto featured at Style At Home. Purchased by designer Paula Velez two years ago, the 2800 sq ft home endured a 9 month renovation that included some demolition of walls, the top floor gutted to create a master suite, a ridiculously fabulous kitchen renovation and much more. This home has it all.

Happy Friday!

I thought I would share a little bit of Femina eye candy before I head out for a day of errands since this is my day off from my government job. I hate that alot of my days off end up like this, with a to-do list a mile long so I could use a little pick-me-up with these photos below. I shouldn't complain too much - on my list are items like find some decorations for my new blue/black and white kitchen, and visit/feed my stray kittens - which is a daily event that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming (as of 2 days ago the littlest one has decided he likes me petting him!). Happy Friday folks!
