An uncomplicated retreat and relaxation space at the end of the garden. Just living, dining and yoga areas. Minimalist lines with a design riff of contrast. Light and dark, open and closed, public and private. Simple beauty by General Assembly.

Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.


A contemporary family retreat in Texas

Posted on Sun, 26 Jul 2020 by KiM

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

Modern and minimal in a penthouse redesign

Posted on Wed, 8 Jul 2020 by KiM

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.

Refined rustic in a new-build cottage

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.
