Uptown prewar

Posted on Fri, 2 Oct 2015 by KiM

Lawd half mursey I adore this New York dwelling by architecture firm raad studio. The dark floors, beautiful (original I presume) moldings, neutral colour scheme with just enough black, and OMG that kitchen! This is the definition of a considered home. It is fairly simple yet every inch is just as it should be. I was sitting here prepping this post wondering if I could live here. I would LOVE to live here but I can’t imagine going thrifting and coming home with something totally random…where would it go? 

P.S. While on the subject of thrifting, when this post goes live I will be on my way to Toronto with the husband to partake in the Toronto Antique & Vintage Market for the first time. Partake meaning I will divide my time between helping with the Daff Design booth and shopping! If you’re in the area this weekend come check the show out. If it’s anything like the Ottawa show it will be AWESOME!! 

Ofist – Y House

As serene as the blue, blue ocean that is framed by its windows. As stylish as its fashion industry owners. The perfect summer retreat in the Turkish resort town of Bodrum, the Y House by Istanbul-based architectural firm Ofist.

Louise Jones – A Swiss chalet

Posted on Thu, 1 Oct 2015 by KiM

Perhaps I would be more tolerant of our horrendous winters here in Ottawa if I could “slum it” in a place like this. This chalet in Switzerland is epic. It has everything you could need – including indoor pool, movie room and spa. I would be begging for a snow day so I could have an excuse not to leave. Designed by British firm Louise Jones Interiors
