Eclectic and colourful granny chic

Posted on Thu, 31 Jan 2019 by KiM

Eclectic and colourful, with an overtone of granny chic. Which makes this home absolutely to die for because I love all of those things together. This is such a mash-up of styles, and the colours are so beautiful I can’t stop staring at these photos and inspecting every intriguing inch. Congrats to Chloe Warner of design firm Redmond Aldrich for turning this San Francisco carriage home into something spectacular.

A colourful modern Tudor

Posted on Thu, 31 Jan 2019 by KiM

Bold and colourful patterns in wallpapers, curtains, pillows and artwork are set against a neutral backdrop in this lively and inviting modern Tudor home designed by Dallas-based Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25. It is really inspirational to see a designer take a fairly ordinary home and have alot of fun with it.

The Zin House

Posted on Wed, 30 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

“The home is a rich layering of textures; the sleek plaster walls of the house are striking against the lush green setting of a Napa vineyard. Clean and modern, the home is given a warmth and depth by a material palette that starts by pairing concrete, still holding in its texture the character of the forms that made it, with soft upholstery and bright pops of color. A tight-grain wood maintains the simplicity of the palette while inviting in more complex warmth and depth, and allowing the more rustic details of the project to stand out without overpowering a project that remains distinctly modern in its feel.”

That’s one way of putting it. The other way is “WOW”.  The Zin House with interiors by Shawback Design, architectural design by Field Architecture and landscape by Surface Design .

The next stage

Posted on Wed, 30 Jan 2019 by midcenturyjo

We loved the first stage of this Armadale, Melbourne home by Simone Haag. Sensationally chic and fashion forward (here). The next area tackled by Simone and her team was the informal living space. Family friendly but still so design savvy just like its fashion director owner. Cesca chairs, Maralunga sofa, perfect!

My dream cabin getaway

Posted on Tue, 29 Jan 2019 by KiM

I have always dreamt about having a cabin on a lake somewhere on the outskirts of Ottawa to spend weekends enjoying nature and the quiet of the country life. This cabin may not have much going on in the interior (which is typically what you get from an architect’s portfolio), but it is breathtaking in its simplicity. I would absolutely maintain a minimalist approach with this space and keep the colour palette neutral with some pastel accents. You know, that Scandi vibe. You basically have to with all that pine.
