Living the Tuscan dream

Atop a picturesque Tuscan hillside is this absolutely sublime stone and brick home that I have completely fallen in love with. Another project by the incredibly talented Elodie Sire of D.mesure. The original architectural details are beautiful in and of themselves with those beams! those stone arches! but the decor heightens the fabulousness of this home. And OMG how many bathrooms are there?! I adore each one and had to feature them all so pardon the lack of photo editing here. I am sure you won't mind. ;)

Sunday inspiration

I was poking around Marie Claire Maison yesterday and came across a few homes that really captured my attention so I thought I would share a couple of them. This Marrakech home has gorgeous features that are typical of Moroccan architecture but the owners have spiced things up with some mid-century modern furnishings. A quirky combination, and I love it.

A Muskoka cottage

The perfect getaway in the Muskokas for summer or winter, by Toronto-based interior design firm Timothy Johnson Design. A lighthearted approach was taken when renovating and decorating this quaint cottage on the water's edge. A complete overhaul of the kitchen and bath allowed for the addition of modern amenities. The rustic living areas were enhanced with plush, custom furnishings and vintage pieces to create a warm, laid-back setting.

A renovated farmhouse in Italy

Pair an 1887 farmhouse in the Italian countryside with architecture firm MIDE and you get an incredible mix of modern and rustic. Maintaining the original stone, brick and chestnut wood exterior, inside natural lime plaster was applied on the walls to highlight irregularities, original beams were exposed and ceilings bleached. The result is a dreamy blend of old and new.

Maison nordique-boréale

Because my trip to Mexico is not for another 3 weeks. Because I hate winter more than anything else. Because I love featuring talented Canadians. This cabin in the woods in Sainte-Adèle, Québec was designed by Appareil Architecture and is a great distraction from the current weather here in Ottawa. This home is exactly what bringing the outside in is all about. A cabin that is simple and warm and functional. What a little dreamy oasis in the country.
