Eclectic on a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 27 Sep 2015 by KiM

Today I am sharing some eclectic British decor because frankly, I think Brits really know how to do it right. A little traditional English mixed with some mid-century and boudoir chic in a beautiful Victorian home makes for some yummy eye candy. Via JJ Locations. (P.S. Today is day 2 of the Etsy/Handmade Harvest show so fi you’re in Ottawa and didn’t make it out yesterday you have another chance! Despite not having a chance to shop for me, I still managed to get a couple of things like this chair and this light).

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 26 Sep 2015 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a Saturday then it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish. I would move in and never go home if my workplace looked like this. Architect’s Office on Kim Yam Rd by Singapore-based Park + Associates.

Happy Friday!

Posted on Fri, 25 Sep 2015 by KiM

Happy Friday dear readers! It has been a long work week and I am so grateful the weekend is upon us! But my work never seems to end. Tonight I will be helping the husband set up his booth at this year’s Etsy Made in Canada show here in Ottawa taking place Saturday and Sunday which all you Ottawans should come out to because it’s the biggest crafty show of the year! And maybe buy a vintage radio converted into a Bluetooth speaker. 😉 (Or at least stop by and entertain me for a few minutes.) Anyhoo, there goes my weekend. But before I go I leave you with a couple of spaces I came across lately that I cannot get out of my head. There’s nothing spectacular about them but for some reason I am drawn to their random eclecticism. Because I love me some random decor.

Luxury and elegance. This is what London-based interior designer Fiona Barratt is all about. I would walk into these spaces and think “fancy schmancy” but they’re not pretentious or blingy. It’s put-your-feet-up-on-the-coffee-table luxury.
