An eclectic 1892 home in Charleston

Posted on Fri, 5 Apr 2024 by KiM

Old world vibes, but make it a mix of worlds in this circa 1982 home in Charleston designed by Alecia Stevens. It’s eclectic from another time, with antiques that are European, Asian, British, Middle Eastern and everything in between. I really love this, and that every piece seems to tell a story and all together they tell quite a beautiful story. Photos: Kirk Robert.

A black kitchen

Posted on Fri, 5 Apr 2024 by KiM

There’s a common and simple theme in my world of interiors – I love dark and hate white. Whilst I’m not sure how practical having a black kitchen is (I have a black tiled bathroom – I find it easily shows dust, water streaks etc), I absolutely adore this kitchen and would prefer this over a white kitchen any day. The character of this space (the black with the caramel is soooo yummy) and the graphic detail of the tiled floor is really doing it for me. Designed by Beau Geste. Photos: Amy Bartlam.

An 1840 Gothic Revival home in Germantown, NY

Oh what I would do to get my hands on a home like this! Gothic revival architecture – yes please! A fireplace in the kitchen – yes please! A sunroom (with an exterior that looks like a little cottage) – yes please! Timelessly classic traditional design with a touch of modernity – yes please! Design: L.B. Copeland; Architecture: Bohl Architects; Photos: Adam Kane Macchia

A gentleman’s apartment in Minneapolis

Posted on Wed, 3 Apr 2024 by KiM

I am smitten with this apartment in Minneapolis designed by Alecia Stevens. A mix of historic architecture and classic yet comfortable furnishings. This space includes a kitchen that I am head over heels in love with – lofty with stainless steel cabinets and an antique island with marble top and a really cool subway tile pattern on the walls AND has a fireplace with sitting area. It’s PERFECTION. Architecture: Andrew Hawkinson Contractor: Welch Forsman Photos: Scott Amundson

The most beautiful home in Ottawa

Posted on Mon, 1 Apr 2024 by KiM

My design idol, Henrietta Southam, has created such a magnificent oasis in her latest home here in Ottawa and just when I thought could not be more impressed with her creativity and style….well here we are. I am shook that she can make an earthy, neutral colour palette so damn sexy and sophisticated, and be so dramatic. And to be doing this from a city that has access to almost no decent design shops and in general some of the most boring and bland taste in interiors. It is what makes Henrietta so unique and inspiring. Read more about her home on Architectural Digest (!!!!). Photos: Marc Fowler of Metropolis Studio
