A family-friendly and colourful townhouse in the West Village

There is nothing I appreciate more than an old home with its original details maintained after a renovation, like in this West Village townhouse by Rob Stuart. This fearless family yearned for a color infused, yet calming, fresh design all with the detail and nuance of a rarified turn of the century townhouse. Vintage mantles, layered moldings, patterned wallpapers and colorful fabrics come together in this family friendly home. We nudged various walls slightly throughout the floor plan to provide for a more spacious feel. I am head over heels with this little foyer in the photo above. I love the bold yellow wallpaper for the ceiling paired with the teal light fixture. It's an unexpected pairing with the rest of the traditional details.

A gothic glam industrial loft

Glam + gothic + industrial + loft = this amazing space in Los Angeles by BAM Design Lab (Barbie Palomino & Annie May). This loft is super sexy and grungy with some of the coolest wallpapers I have ever seen. I could totally live here as my city pad and then have a house in the country for all my lighter and brighter decor. Anyone else on the fence about all-over-tufted sofas? I love/hate/love/hate. But here it works so damn well.

A bright, playful home

Neutral walls and floors call for bold accessorizing. In this case Shauna Glenn went all out in the colour and pattern department to turn her home from bland into WOW!!! I had to start this post off with her bathroom because it is drop dead gorgeous!

Best seats in the house

 

This tudor home in Ann Arbor Hills, Michigan designed by Cloth & Kind is a dream, but I am especially smitten with these 2 seating arrangements. Picture perfect! (Check out more of the home here)

A renovated 1890's home in Ottawa

Back in the summer of 2014 I featured the home next door to me, designed by Grassroots Design + Build. The other day Sarah, a local editor, contacted me to see if I was interested in featuring the 1890's renovated home of Emma Doucet, who runs Grassroots. Her home is in Hintonburg, a favourite neighbourhood I have lived near for over a decade and I have driven by Emma's house on many occasions and absolutely love it. Sarah kindly sent me a bunch of photos (by Justin Van Leeuwen) and some info from a story she wrote on this house a couple of years ago. So before I share the photos here are some details... Emma and her husband bought the home in 2006, and 4 months of renovations included a complete redo of the kitchen that opened it to the dining room, and redesign of the bathrooms. Luckily through 4 owners many original featured remained like the dining room mouldings and living room fireplace. The new kitchen includes dreamy custom cabinets and a pressed-tin ceiling. This house is so fun and fresh and has so much character. I LOVE IT!!!
