Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.
Now this is weekend living! This breathtaking glass home was once a bare-bones fish camp on the Llano River in the Texas Hill Country (a 48 acre piece of waterfront land) and eventually this home was built. A striking melange of limestone blocks, charred cedar planks, walls of glass, it’s modern and rustic, casual and tranquil. Via Garden & Gun. Architect: Michael Hsu Photos: Wynn Myers
Embracing the old and blending in the new. I’m always a huge fan of touches of dark drama and cityhomeCOLLECTIVE does it just right every time. For this cityhomeCOLLECTIVE project, we purchased a dilapidated penthouse in the Premier Condo building, built in 1931, and turned it over to our interior design team for a substantial overhaul. We worked to preserve the character and charm of the building by preserving arched openings and elaborate moldings. Also infused a much-needed modern vibe throughout by designing a clean, minimal fireplace and choosing furniture that would proliferate styles and create layers to suggest that the space had evolved over time.
Lots of warm whites with punches of black make this new-build cottage in Innisfil, Ontario very bright and inviting. It’s a refined take on country cottage style with a relaxed vibe and a simple approach to the decor. Lidia Van Zyl created a really beautiful getaway for the homeowners to enjoy.

I am head over heels over this kitchen. Every inch if it. The drama of the contrast between black and white, with gold tones added in wood, art and the pendant, the soapstone countertops and integrated sink, the Indonesian rosewood armoire pantry (a Kijiji steal)….and perhaps my favourite touch is the fact that designer Inez Mazzotta (Kelly Hopter Interiors) left the window casings white and painted the rest of the window black. Graphic with a touch of subtlety.
