My heart continues to experience palpitations when I find homes with original centuries-old details and a traditional vibe. The character that oozes from the stone walls and old flooring really makes me crave a home with history. Berdoulat is located in Bath (U.K.) and specialise in period buildings and restoration, and these spaces from their portfolio are about to give me a stroke.

Traditional meets contemporary

Posted on Mon, 26 Oct 2020 by KiM

Love the cozy, earthy vibes in this home designed by Indiana based designer Whittney Parkinson. And the kitchen is a dream! Traditional architectural details are blended with the contemporary to create a cohesive home for the modern family. WPD blended a neutral foundation with pops of color to enhance the home’s finishes and create depth. Beautiful fabrics mix well with slick metals and warm woods in this eclectic residence.

Sunday at a restaurant/bar

Posted on Sun, 25 Oct 2020 by KiM

As I get this post ready it is Saturday night and we’re waiting for our takeout from a restaurant in our neighbourhood – because we are still not able to dine in restaurants here in Ottawa. We try and order in dinner at least once a week to help support these businesses that are really suffering this year. I being able to enjoy a meal in a restaurant, particularly because it was what husband and I would do for the occasional date night. This restaurant in Vienna called Motto is absolutely gorgeous and would be a dream to visit in person. And that outdoor space!!! Designed by Atelier Karasinski.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish and the most stylish of them all is a designer’s office. Los Angeles design headquarters of Studio Shamshiri.
