Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnętrzach

Marcin and Magda Konopka are the duo behind Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnętrzach (Ministry of Interior Affairs) based in Gdansk, Poland. This is one of their projects - Grand Oak House, where beautiful and warm oak played a central role. Nods towards nature including forest and wheat murals and earthy colours mixed with grey warm up the modern architectural elements of concrete and steel. Gorgeous.

Haus Bubkevitz

I'm so excited to be back from the holiday break with new posts for 2014!  A new year, a new week and a great escape. An escape from having to going back to work, an escape from an extreme case of Mondayitis. Come with me as we wind our way down a meandering country road on the Island of Rügen in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania region of Germany. To an old schoolhouse/farmhouse. The old barn and endless fields are all we can see as we enter our holiday home. Modern meets traditional, simple minimalism meets rich maximalist murals. American Gothic? A rabbit in the room? Perhaps a minimalist grey attic space. No TV, no internet, no worries. Haus Bubkevitz.

Mural love

We received an email a couple days ago that without a doubt had to be shared with you all: "I'm Lady, an advertising creative from Manila and an avid reader and fan of your blog. You've featured our cat Kitty Bang Bang once on Monday's Pets on Furniture. For the past year, my boyfriend and I have been constantly inspired by your featured interiors to improve our new home. Having an artist father, I've therefore asked him to paint a mural on our dining room wall, to break the sparseness of the space." Oh, to have an artist for a father! This mural is fantastic!!! Thank you so much for sharing Lady!


In the press

The blog has had a bit of press out there recently that we're really stoked about (ok, particularly me being the Canadian). Today on the Canadian House & Home website a gallery of photos went live that I selected as DTI's favourite interiors. So go check it out here and find out what our 10 favourites are.

Another biggie is a story I was contacted about for the Toronto Star newspaper. The subject was wall murals and I was interviewed by one of their reporters who ended up using a photo of my living room! Check the story out here.

A huge thanks to Lisa at H&H for including us in their blogger galleries and Paola at the Star for including me in her mural story!!


Scott Waterman

Scott Waterman is an artist, a talented decorative painter and I'd like to add an incredible interior designer once I saw photos of his home. His decorative painting began with trompe l'oeil murals and the restoration of historic buildings. Amazing talent (click for larger images)...

His former home in San Francisco was featured in several shelter magazines and was absolutely breathtaking - so serene, romantic, captivating and filled with natural beauty. The creativity in these spaces is fascinating.

Scott has alot of ideas for his house and someday hopes to move his studio out of it, but in the meantime it's fantastic - the white makes his stunning and colourful artwork just come to life. Talk about multi-talented!! Thank you Scott for introducing us to your creative world.
