A tour of my home

Posted on Mon, 21 Jan 2019 by KiM

Over the Christmas holidays I was pretty busy shooting photos around my house. Reason for that was last Friday I had the absolute honour of having a house tour feature on Design*Sponge. !!!!! And because I only randomly feature photos of my home on here, I thought I should share a bunch of the photos here for you folks as well. You can check out the tour here which includes descriptions of each space and a list of resources. I am fortunate to have been included on Grace’s blog before she shuts it down in August. D*S has been around even longer than our beloved DTI so this is really sad to hear. Thank you D*S and particularly Kelli Kehler whom I worked with on this feature. Now on to the photos…

Why does the room that is essentially the closet get the best stuff? That chandelier is great but is totally wrong for the room, there’s a great piece I can’t see, a great cupboard stuck in the corner, that chair, and that radio collection is fantastic! Do some of them still work? Personally, I would love to design a room around the collection.
Outdoor cat space is very inventive. They look happy and expressive.

KiM says:

I could not disagree with you more about my chandelier. LOL
He tries to buy radios that don’t work since he guts them. A couple might work.
The cats loooooooooove the catio. More than I could have ever hoped for.

b says:

That’s too bad. Turn it into a guest bedroom, of all your “stuff”, that collection is the most interesting and desrves a prominant place in the public areas of your home
Get yourself a good sofa.

Love everything! Especially your bright against dark, within rooms and rooms next to each other.

And, you are so much prettier than your black and white shows.

I don’t follow Design Sponge but I occasionally follow links. Desire to Inspire is much more inspirational…

KiM says:

Thanks soooo much Suzanne! XOXO
D*S has been a rock in the design blog community for so long. I’ll be sad to see it go.

Where to begin?! It’s fantastic- I was going to list my favorite parts, but really it’s all so great! From the entry to the catio. And all the colors- from the paint to furnishings. I am also terribly envious of your ceramics/pottery collection 🙂

Thanks for the tour, Kim- you put a lot of soul into your home- and you look maaavelous!

I’m also sorry to hear about DS- have been reading there for many years.

KiM says:

Thanks so much Axie!! XOXO

I’ve been a fan of both blogs for a very long time – agree the DesignSponge will be missed. Its great to see the whole of your house! I love all of it but particularly the foyer.

KiM says:

thank you LPB! XO

jared hayden says:

Gorgeous. I remember when you guys first bought the place and your sense of indecision. What you’ve done is amazing.

KiM says:

🙂 Thanks a bunch Jared! Part of my indecision was due to people thinking I was insane for eventually giving in to the idea of painting my mahogany-stained wainscotting. Once I did there was no stopping me on the rest of the house! 😉

jane says:

Wow, what a beautiful, eclectic, one of a kind home. Thank you so much for sharing!

KiM says:

Thank you so much Jane!!!

Lorraine says:

I absolutely love the pink ceiling with the terracotta colored walls! So groovy! It all looks great.

KiM says:

Thank you so much Lorraine!!!
