Harriet Anstruther

Country to contemporary, traditional to modern, Harriet Anstruther Studio can do it all, and the resulting spaces are the most calming, inviting and timeless you can imagine. Each and every one of these rooms draws you in and I would be completely at ease and at peace in all of them.

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.

An apartment by General Assembly 

I absolutely adore this Brooklyn apartment, designed by Sarah Lawlor Zames of General Assembly. After trying and failing to find an apartment with character, the owners of this space opted to combine two fairly lifeless new development apartments and renovate to perfectly suit their style. Bringing in as many natural materials as possible was important to these penthouse owners, so GA incorporated concrete wall and ceiling details, reclaimed wood floors, marble slabs in the shower and kitchen, and plenty of custom Walnut millwork. We designed steel and glass doors to divide public and private areas, and full height flush millwork doors to stretch the space upward.  This is a fantastic example of how to create a modern space that is comfortable and has personality. The wood flooring is an absolute dream, and is beautiful when combined with the marble and walnut. The southwestern vibe in the living room really works and the unexpected graphic wallpapers add some whimsy. I would not change a thing. Lucky owners! (photos by Joe Fletcher)

The marble against the walnut and matte black is stunning.

Bassiviere

Is it only Tuesday? Not Friday? Still most of the working week in front of me? Urgh! Time for a virtual escape to the French countryside. To Bassiviere in the Lot-et-Garonne region, a tra­di­tional farm­house and 17th cen­tury out­build­ings reimagined as con­tem­po­rary barn chic holiday apartments. Want to runaway with me?

A house in the hills

A rustic cabin (not really, how about cabin-like) in the hills of Ojai, California that is an absolute dream inside and out. That living room below is just about the most perfect relaxing hangout space (let's assume the rug is faux). Commune did a fantastic job on the decor - not too rustic with modern touches and their signature use of patterns/textures in pillows and blankets. My ideal home - and that pool is just a really sweet bonus. :)
