Bright and bold kitchen

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2009 by KiM

I saw this today on a local paper’s website (Ottawa Citizen) and had to share it. How gorgeous is this apple (or acid) green kitchen?!?! It is Daniel and Helene Gauthier’s kitchen in their 2 bedroom, 850 sq ft downtown condo. (Perhaps it is so fab because Daniel is senior kitchen designer for Potvin Kitchen & Bath). They are very brave to have such a bold colour used so abundantly in their kitchen. Fantastic!!

Just found this photo in my stash – LOVE THIS!! (I wanted to do this in my office when I was redecorating it last year but couldn’t find decent looking crates).

Another new chair

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2009 by KiM

I recently had the privilege of trying out another beanbag chair from Sumolounge. I was able to select any model that peaked my curiosity, so I chose a Sumosac Couple. Quite a bit less floppy than their Omni model that I first received, the Couple is part of Sumo’s series of more rounded, firmer models. It is filled with 100% shredded furniture grade urethane foam, and wrapped in a removable micro-suede cover. I opted for this model because the models larger than this seemed pretty big and I wanted to make sure it would easily fit through a doorway and into my boyfriend’s apartment. It is, if possible, more comfortable than the Omni, and I love that the cover can be removed and washed. I plunked myself down in it the other night to watch some TV and it was awesome. My boyfriend’s cats adore the new chair too (as you’ll see in the photos). A big thanks to Sumo for sending me another chair! (Unfortunately, you’ll have to suffer through some more photos of me on the chair, as I couldn’t very well show a photo of only a black blob).

Lili Diallo is one of my favourite prop stylists. Her home was featured in Domino magazine last year and in a recent issue of Living Etc., and it has such an eclectic, comfortable and funky vibe. Her website is filled with so much eye candy and lots of cool pairings to take note of.
