Earthy in Nanoose Bay

Posted on Tue, 20 Mar 2018 by KiM

When you live along the edge of a bay, it only seems right to keep your spaces earthy and neutral. A touch of blue to bring the colour of the water in doesn’t hurt. What a gorgeous, simple project by Vancouver designer Angela Robinson

60’s Beach Pad

Posted on Fri, 9 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at Dehn Bloom. Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.

A new bedroom and library in an old apartment

Posted on Tue, 6 Mar 2018 by KiM

While I anxiously await the project that never seems like it is going to happen (the creation of a library in my third floor unused space), I can only hold back pang sof jealousy when I come across projects like this by Sophie Lallias of Atelier Sofi(A). She created a bedroom and library and left a narrow staircase to access the rest of the apartment. 3.5 metre high bookcases allow for maximum use of a very small space and the result is TONS of book storage, a workspace and a cozy bedroom. (That’s FarrowBall’s Tessela wallpaper in the hallway and Cole & Sons Woods & Stars in the bedroom…and these photos are by Benoit Alazard)

Rich velvets and metallics, fine art and carefully curated collections, dark corners and soaring ceilings. It’s all about the drama, a glamorous modern drama. Luxurious, refined, sophisticated, rich. West Village Residence by New York based Carlyle Designs.

Los Feliz style

Love the vibe in this home designed by L.A. based designer Barbie Palomino. Some dark paint choices make it moody, with furnishings that give it a groovy, mid-century feel. I dig all of this.
