Feminine and glamourous

Posted on Wed, 20 Apr 2016 by KiM

I was surprised to realize that we have never featured the fabulous style of Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita Blog. This project is my favourite of hers and showcases her aesthetic – traditional with a modern and glamourous twist. A definite feminine vibe that is elegant, refined and timeless.

Living in the jungle

Posted on Wed, 20 Apr 2016 by midcenturyjo

Over the years Kim and I have been fascinated by the homes of Sera Hersham-Loftus or should I say the reinvention of her homes. The queen of the boudoir look with its seductive, glamorous and over-the-top trappings is also the queen of the quick change, of reinvigorating her glorious spaces. Kim last featured her house a year ago but when I recently visited the Sera of London website, voila, her house had evolved into a glamazon jungle with the addition of even more houseplants than her usual parlour palms. It’s spring, only it’s inside. I love the look but can you imagine watering day?!

My new sofa from Furniture Maison

Posted on Tue, 19 Apr 2016 by KiM

I recently found out about a new furniture company and was so stoked to learn they are Canadian – and their style is fantastic! Furniture Maison is an online furniture store specializing in clean design and simple aesthetic products. From their direct partnerships with independent designers, to their emphasis on use of high quality solid wood, they are all about curating thoughtfully designed, well-crafted pieces. Furniture Maison’s moto is to inspire a calm and comfortable environment — one of intimate sophistication and culture that is completely unique to each individual. I was really stoked to partner with them because I really do love everything they carry. Funky yet simple and stylish. Mid century modern furniture with a bit of a Scandinavian edge.

The lovely folks at Furniture Maison asked me to choose my favourite sofa and they would ship it to me. YES! It was an easy desicion for me because I have always wanted a mid century sectional. Husband and I love to spread out for movie night and a sectional is perfect for that. I went with the Ruby Reversible sectional because it has great lines and as modern sofas go, it has an edge to it I really like. And I went with the grey since my living room is all about tones of grey.

I had no idea anyone made a sectional so compact – if you’re on the market for a small sofa CHECK THIS ONE OUT! It has plenty of room for husband and I to stretch out. The size is really quite amazing. I love the fabric (although wool with a bunch of cats was maybe not the best choice, so I solved this with a sheepskin) and it seems very well made. Also loving the fact that it only has 2 cushions, which makes it more modern in style. The shape of the back is pretty sexy too. They have several really fun sofas to choose – you can see their sofa collection page here. (And all at super prices)

(Coffee table: Daff Design (husband), Pillows: Fotofibre, Kilim: Kaya Kilims, Pendant light: Aim by Flos)

They have some other really cool collections as well – like their reclaimed and concrete lines. Their reclaimed wood furniture is just how I like it – not too rustic and with an industrial edge. I especially love the Eiffel sideboard and this Louvre coffee table made from reclaimed telephone poles and railway tracks.

I am also a fan of their concrete line. I like to think you can never have enough concrete or marble. 🙂 The Vega concrete coffee table is simple in its design and a perfect combination of concrete, wood and metal.

Also simple and could be used in any and every room in your home is the Vega concrete cube. There is the option of getting it with or without a shelf. This concrete table makes a great side table in a living room, bedroom, or my favourite – as a plant stand.

Furniture Maison is now a favourite of mine and on my to-watch list. Fabulous furniture at really great prices and even greater style.
