WE Design

Spotted this powder room on Remodelista and I knew I had to see more of the house. What is it about subway tile, dark grout and the warm, golden hue of wood that gets me every time? Add in a hint of copper or pipe used for anything other than carrying water and well, I'm weak at the knees.

hoo favourites

I love this sleek little nook. Black and marble with a splash of gold. Beauty.

Compact and cute. Dying over the hex tiled floor. 

Not a new concept, but it is amazing what you can accomplish with a set of kitchen cabinets and a slab of marble.

*** HOT ***

Another hot bathroom. Complete with black marble, white subway tiles, one of my favourite mirrors, and black hex floor tiles. 

If you have a gorgeous tile, why not run it along the floor and up the wall!

 Love the brass lights and the cool theater chair. Perfect for a narrow hallway.

Almost perfect

The only thing stopping this bathroom from being perfect is that it's not real. Oh how cruel (and life like) computer rendering is these days. Can't wait to see the real thing when it is built. Design by Studio You Me and filed away for inspiration by me.

El Quiosc

It is really unfortunate that Barcelona is no where near Ottawa because I would LOVE to check out this restaurant in person (and maybe even try a burger while I'm there). Alex of Blanco Azabache Interiorismo thought we would like to share this latest project of his with you all. It is a burger joint called EL Quiosc. It is an old house in the center of the town of Mataró (Barcelona) that after abandoning the shoemaker who had his workshop there decided to rent my clients to transform into a gourmet burger, with a industrial retro aesthetics (4 rooms, entrance area + the childs playground). As an aficionado of all things industrial, I love what Alex has done with this space. Lots of rustic and industrial touches with a French and Spanish vibe make this a quirky yet fun and inviting restaurant. There are lots of elements I would love in my own home - from every bit of lighting and seating to the hanging terrariums and tile flooring (YES!).

A Victorian kitchen

Jessica Helgerson is the queen of kitchens, and I had to share yet another one of her amazing kitchen renovations. The kitchen and dining room were remodelled in this old Victorian home in Portland, making a larger, brighter kitchen by using part of a sun porch. It is absolutely beautiful, and so conducive to having large family gatherings where everyone congregates in the kitchen (it's even houses a sofa in case it wasn't inviting enough!)
