A converted timber mill

A mix of old and new, dark and light, modern and rustic. This converted timber mill in Sydney, Australia has everything I love in a home. And it is absolutely stunning inside and out. Kudos to architecture firm Carter Williamson for completing yet another dreamy project.

Stalking a home in Yellowknife

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories has a special place in my family's heart. Many years ago when my twin sister and I were starting university here in Ottawa, the rest of the family moved to Yellowknife for a few years. Yellowknife is WAY up north and is quite a unique city. It mostly consists of rock and lakes not much else. The house my folks bought was on one of the few streets where the yards had grass (it was considered a luxury given the freezing climate and terrible quality of earth) and the trees were not short little evergreens. There are many creative types up there who over the years have built many really cool homes...some on water and some, like in this case, on the side of a rock face. This house in Old Town is one everyone had greatly admired and we had always wondered what it looked like inside. 20 years later we finally know. :) 

Nestled into the rocky landscape, this now iconic to Yellowknife home was built by a long-time northerner and architect with every space, window and beam in the home thoughtfully designed, crafted and placed with purpose. Watch the sun rise over Great Slave Lake as you water the garden, witness the neighborhood fox hunting for his lunch as you wash dishes in the kitchen, enjoy the soft evening sun during your yoga practice in the loft and treat family and friends to panoramic lake and city views on the huge upper deck backing onto rocky greenspace, perfect for your kids to run around and explore. Originally built in 1978, with the addition built in 1990, the home features cedar siding, fir structural beams and fir and maple custom designed built-in furniture and detailing. Listed at a mere $899,000 ;)

Serious loft love

I am still lusting over lofts and even though I have shared some of these photos before I have not shared this loft as a whole yet and absolutely needed to. A weathered wood delight with the most beautiful art gallery wall in the living room, with a sexy staircase, even sexier bathtub and a sweet rooftop patio....I'm seriously dying over this loft.

Rustic bathroom envy

Always a fan of a well executed rustic space. And given that I have yet to renovate the world's most annoying bathroom I am envious when I see things like outlets and counter space. This bathroom is dreamy. XOXO

Boathouse

Never mind the house. (It's beautiful by the way.) I would be happy with "just" the boathouse. Perfection perched on the edge of the Sydney Harbour by interior designer Sarah Davidson.
