As many of you will know I'm in the throes of organising a bathroom renovation. Searching for inspiration, planning, sourcing. I have so many images in my inspiration files I thought I'd share a few. Although my heart is set on a boho, vintage vibe I'm equally drawn to clean lined, contemporary bathrooms. They always look so fresh and fabulous ... and I'm finding that sourcing the look, particularly online, is so much easier which is really important when you're time poor like I always seem to be.
Two floors of French fabulousness in this apartment by Paris design duo RMGB. On the upper level are kitchen, dining and living areas with a mezzanine reached by a ladder, all tucked into the building's eaves. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom with exposed beams. Minimal, modern lines with custom joinery and beautiful oak floors, all united with the perfect shade of grey.
When an architect makes an effort to redesign a house that still blends in with its surroundings. Kudos to Toronto architecture firm Johnson Chou for this wonderful project (which maybe can inspire and architect or 2 here in Ottawa). I adore this home inside and out and will be using this as inspiration whenever I get around to doing something with the exterior of my house. (How does a house built in 1940 NEVER have any landscaping done?! It's so embarrassing). And check out a previous feature on this talented firm here.
A couple of months ago Jo featured a project by Brazilian architect Felipe Hess that was fresh and colourful with some fun graphic patterns. I came across this project of Felipe's that is quite the opposite. Not what we typically see from a Brazilian - this one is very subdued, modern and minimalist. I love it for those reasons. And because someone clearly has great taste in chairs (Hans Wegner's Hoop and Peacock).
