A Victorian rowhouse loaded with charm

Posted on Fri, 17 May 2019 by KiM

I am completely and utterly in love with the home of interior designer Anne Tollett of Hanover Avenue, based in Richmond, Virginia. I can’t even get beyond the photo above. So simple yet absolutely perfect (and it’s not because of the cat LOL). The rest of her home is perfection too.

A turn of the century Swedish apartment

Posted on Wed, 15 May 2019 by KiM

I spotted his beauty of an apartment on Lagerlings and had to share because it’s not your typical Swedish style of white and pastels. A bit of rust/orange, some black and brass, a bit of mid-century modern, and some bold artwork makes this space unique.

Parisian modern vibes in a Toronto home

Posted on Wed, 15 May 2019 by KiM

A big thanks to Adam for sending us a link to this absolutely breathtaking newly built home in Toronto that is for sale. The finishes and attention to detail in this home are really incredible.
What’s the result when a new build in an unbeatable location is meticulously designed from the ground up, selecting only the finest finishes, such as a striking floating staircase, an ingenious “hidden” kitchen and ultra-modern bifold doors that transform the entire living space into an indoor-outdoor paradise in an instant? A timeless neoclassical design with a spectacular blend of Parisian charm and modern luxury that inspires you to live out your best life. Step into this sophisticated, bright space that reflects all of the elegance of a French chateau; with grandeur-scale, crown-topped 11-foot ceilings and a breathtaking master suite floor with a large terrace overlooking Toronto’s skyline.  

Leaf and June

Posted on Mon, 13 May 2019 by KiM

I was googling landscaping firms the other day and came across Leaf and June – the Brooklyn-based interior plant design and maintenance studio of Lisa Muñoz. I love this idea SO much! She offers onsite consultation and a custom design proposal tailored to your space. Plants and planters are then sourced upon design approval and potted for you. Then she will deliver, stage, install and a full plant care guide are provided. The perfect solution to any plant dummy out there who lacks the knowledge and confidence to have a house full of greenery. Check out these beautiful spaces Lisa has ‘plantified’.

These two furry friends are having a blast 🐕 I hate leaving our two furry members of the family just like any other dog owner does.. Its something about not bringing them and that we're not around them that gives you a heck of a lot of bad guilt 😅 just like when I have long days at work and I feel so bad that Im not home to walk them or cuddle in the sofa! Yikes that can make me feel so so SO bad! You know that feeling? That feeling of not taking responsibility for those two furry friends. But then I remember that both Jonas' parents and my aunt are taking care of them this week and I feel a lot better. Because that means they're being spoiled from the ears to tail 🙈 #ourfamilyabode #hometohave #makehomematter #howwedwell #heyhomehey #inmydomain #sodomino

I wasn't going to post this because I realised there's a plug slung over the back of the chair, but let's be honest, plugs and wires are basically my trademark. When you like lamps this much they're forever being switched around and you can't hide all the wires. Though admittedly, this might be the worst hiding I've ever done. Don't ask me why it's like this, it's usually a case of "i'll just pop this here to see what it looks li…."*walks off to move something else*. ANYWAY, I was very kindly featured by the lovely bunch over on the #boldbohemians hashtag so though I might share one of my more boho spots, with a bonus pup of course! And say hello to anyone new joining me on here. I think you're lovely. . . . . . #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #eclectichomemix  #spotlightonmyhome #eclecticdecor #ryarug #dtipetsonfurniture #dspets #mygorgeousgaff #myhomevibe #styleithappy #myinteriorinspiration #sundayhygge #boldbohemians #homesweethome #housebeautiful #walltowallstyle #bohoismyjam #apartmenttherapy #dshome #sodomino #mystylishspace

I hate getting flowers for Valentine’s Day. For real-why do flowers have to die in order that you may show your love? Ha! Flowers as gifts are just not for me. I do, instead, have all these glass jars on my kitchen window. My kids (favorite) job is to pick greenery outside for the jars. It’s one of those things that I hope my kids will remember about their childhood, a story they will tell about their mom’s jars of grass and branches and overgrown weeds that made the kitchen a little more beautiful. I got the idea when I saw my grandma put a bundle of dirty plain old clovers, roots and all, in a fancy flower jar. She saw the beauty in the ordinary and it was a profound thing. ✨✨What home “beauty tip” do you have, or, remember from your childhood? I’d love to start some more traditions like this here! #homebeautytip #noimeanbeautyforyourHOME #dtipetsonfurniture #caturdaymorning

And some from me. Semi-feral Bernie on his throne, Mimin wondering why the table is glowing, and Mimin and Milo enjoying a lazy Sunday morning.
