A bit more from Marrimor Design Studio

Posted on Tue, 8 Mar 2016 by KiM

I wanted to share a bit from 2 more projects by Marrimor Design Studio. This first one is located in Point Grey, Vancouver. ‘Light’ is the spirit of this home. Airy & open, this home marries heritage with beach, cottage with city. Simple and classy. 

This little gem in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver is hip and so functional. Respectful and current, this modern heritage re-invention delights around every corner, while custom millwork keeps this busy family home ‘together’.

Living in the trees on South Pender Island, B.C. – and with that view of the water? Spectacular! Open, airy, and cozy is what they love the most. A custom-designed family holiday home that balances comfort with contemporary, privacy with open-ness. Interior design by Marrimor Design Studio

Hello yellow

Posted on Tue, 8 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

Sunshine, daffodils, egg yolks, rubber ducks and rain coats. There is something magical about yellow, something that brings a smile to my face. It’s the same with this ranch house renovation in Ojai, California by Bestor Architecture. This sassy single storey has cast off its post-war dowdiness and is fun and fresh, bright and modern and just a little unexpected.

A glimpse at a recent project by Sara Ray

Posted on Mon, 7 Mar 2016 by KiM

Check out this fantastic project recently completed by Sara Ray of a new construction home. 

This bright and open kitchen features lots of storage. The open reclaimed wood shelving provides interest against the shiplap-clad walls and ceiling.

We custom designed the pantry with the client’s needs in mind. It serves as overflow for serving and party pieces, as well as cookbooks and small appliances.

The double fireplace opens to the living room and dining room. The antique rug, vintage pouf, and gorgeous artwork add a nice punch of color to this cozy setting.

The master bathroom has lots of contrast and drama with its dark floors, doors, and other features, while the countertops, cabinets, and walls remain light.

The designs of Sara Ray

Posted on Mon, 7 Mar 2016 by KiM

I am loving the spaces created by Nashville interior designer Sara Ray. Her aesthetic of old-meets-new is what I always gravitate towards, pairing classic, timeless pieces with clean lines for that perfect balance. And now I desperately want a black cabinet to fill with white dishes and ceramics.
