Wallpaper love

Posted on Thu, 31 Jan 2008 by KiM

I adore wallpaper. I adore wallpaper because I adore pattern. The wallpapers available these days are SO creative and fun. I’ve been wondering if maybe I should wallpaper somewhere in my house. Maybe the powder room. Or in the upstairs hallway. The walls are all in pretty rough shape from being patched up over the past 90 or so years so maybe this would help hide the mess (they are smooth at least). I thought by finding some photos of great wallpapers, I might get inspired to actually go through with it. Or at least inspire someone else to wallpaper something.

Thom Filicia

Posted on Thu, 31 Jan 2008 by KiM

Thom Filicia is a brilliant interior designer. I typically prefer rooms with bold colour and patterns but his mostly muted colour palette is so refreshing and I’m in love with all the furniture and artwork. OH LA LA. Some folks that represent Thom emailed me incredible photos of some of his work. The first three are from one of Thom’s personal residences, the following four are from a Kips Bay project, and the others are from his online portfolio. (Thanks David!)

Interior Designer, author, TV host and producer, keynote speaker, furniture designer, inspiration travel guide and style mentor Kimberley Seldon still has time in her hectic schedule to create these beautifully serene and sophisticated spaces. Elegant, muted palettes are infused with a luxe look. She’s a Canadian design dynamo!

Omniarte Design

Posted on Wed, 30 Jan 2008 by KiM

Omniarte Design is the multi-faceted design firm of Erinn Valencich. After reading the “about” section of her website, I’m amazed at her talents. She’s been on numerous TV shows, writes columns for magazines, has done food and prop styling, is working on a cooking show, and has even trained horses. I’ll of course focus on her interior design talent. Her portfolio is incredible, filled with modern rooms that are layered in geometric patterns and hits of colour. I would give my right arm AND a cat for that red mirror.

Scandinavian expressions

Stunning images from photographer Birgitta Wolfgang Drejer who specializes in interior and lifestyle photography. Her work featuring regularly in Danish and international shelter magazines as well as her own series of books. Birgitta photographs light so beautifully while conveying the mood of a room. I’m blown away by the Scandinavian style she captures through her lens. Her understanding of the meaning of a space is apparent. Love it all! Don’t miss her snow series in her portfolio. Gorgeous.
