Runaway to Mallorca

Posted on Fri, 14 Oct 2016 by KiM

Today we started with a stunning restoration in Morocco, then a home in the most beautiful bay in Florida, and I just spotted this gorgeous holiday villa in Mallorca that I had to share. It is owned by Lutz (and architect) and Bente (the designer) Reimers who live in Hamburg Germany and this is their paradise escape from harsh winters. I love the combination of Danish and local design in this home. Wonderfully unexpected and works so well together. Via Bo Bedre, photos: Morten Holtum.


Luxurious beach living

Posted on Fri, 14 Oct 2016 by KiM

Living the coastal life in Sarasota Bay, Florida looks heavenly, especially now that fall has really set in here in Ottawa and mornings are frosty. This home could have gone way wrong (Miami-fied and over-the-top fancy-schmancy) but it is beachy and contemporary and about as casual as you can get in a house this grand, and OMG how gorgeous is that kitchen backsplash?! Great job keeping things cool Studio G Home. (Builder: Steve Murray Homes Photos: Chibi Moku)

Runaway to Morocco

Come take my hand. We’ll close our eyes and click our heels and be magically transported to 5 Columns, a beautifully restored 18th Century house in the heart of the Essaouira Medina, Morocco. If only it was that easy to escape the slow dragging drudgery of Fridays at work.

Latest work by Katie Lydon

This home designed by Katie Lydon is soooo pretty! I mentioned in this post that her style is about bridging the gap between classic and modern and that is evident in this project as well. She took spaces with the most gorgeous rustic wood floors (I’m seriously dying over these) and architectural details that lean towards country cottage and added unexpected contemporary/modern touches that add some excitement.
