Latest from Kyla Bidgood

I'm really excited to share this home with you today because I absolutely LOVE IT! It's the Victoria, BC home of Jay & Gord, pimped out by interior designer Kyla Bidgood. This home is modern and fabulous, with a mid-century vibe and some superb wallpapers and accent walls that bring some funk. I must point out the pair of Hans Wegner Teddy Bear chairs - I lust for these - that happen to be originals from Gord's childhood family cabin that have been spruced up. Seriously? I hate Gord. LOL Great job as always Kyla!!! (P.S. Check out more of her work here and here, and more details on this project here

Take me away to a retrolicious land Beth Coller.

I'm stalking one of the first modern buildings in Australia ... Stanhill, designed by Frederick Romberg and built in 1948. On the third floor of this amazing building, part multi-storied urban living, part modernist monument is a 2 bedroom apartment that has undergone cosmetic changes but still harks back to its design beginnings. Want to live in a piece of history? Link here while it lasts. (Thanks Markus!)

Park Lane house

I am SOOOO in love with this house. The mid-century modern vibe interior, the random and quirky exterior and OHHH that outdoor covered hangout nook complete with fireplace. If I could rebuild my house horizontally rather than vertically I'd absolutely use this as inspiration. By Kennedy Nolan Architects, photos by Derek Swalwell.
