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. Interior designers always have great workspaces. Just saying. JRI Offices by Jaimee Rose Interiors.
You can’t go wrong with black and white. Well, most of the time. In this home designed by Tamara Magel I think she nailed what can often end up be harsh when tackling this colour scheme but this is cozy, warm, and family friendly with a mild dose of glamour. Also, black windows will always have my heart. (Photos: Rikki Snyder)
What do you do when you want a pool but your backyard isn’t massive? When you don’t want the hard poolscape dominating your garden. Perhaps a little camouflage by the way of painting everything black to help it visually disappear especially as the greenery fills out? Blade like steel posts (pool regulations compliant) are almost sculptural and the retractable shade sail provides sun smart respite from dangerous UV rays. Blackline by Grieve Gillett Andersen.
Minimal, sleek, modern, neutral, simple. la SHED Architecture is one of my favourite architecture firms. They take the beauty of the Canadian landscape, and showcase it with clean, simple designs that blur the lines of interior and exterior regardless of the season. This home on Lac Saint-Pierre in Trois-Rivières, Québec is simply beautiful.

Finally the hero of the room, those old carved timber doors on the pantry. It’s the recipe for a beautiful, eclectic kitchen by Toronto based Kelly Hopter Interiors.
