This industrial loft-y home in Montreal’s Mount Royal neighbourhood is the home and workspace of architect Natalie Dionne and her family. It’s brilliant U-shaped design allows the urban environment to be blocked off and for the outdoors to be enjoyed in peace. I love courtyards!! And with lots of sliding and garage-style doors, it brings the outside right in. In this climate, this is a unique feature that makes this a really special home.
Oh how I love some loft eye candy! This one by Chicago interior designer Anthony Michael is really eclectic and a whole lot of fun. A distinctive global vibe is evident throughout this glorious loft which adds a lot of warmth to the mostly-exposed-brick space, and painting some of the brick out in white makes it brighter and less industrial. Even the motorcycle parked within the loft works 🙂 (More of his work here and here)

Still no internet at home. Still relying on my phone. Still making spelling mistdkes because of my fat fingers. Still in love with everything that Workstead designs. Woven rattan … swoon.
Please forgive me. I have internet connection issues and I’m typing this with chubby iPhone fingers. For now let me just say I love the drama, the contrast and the modern luxury of this Melbourne house by Bayley Ward Architects with styling and furniture selection by Larritt-Evans. I promise to come back and write more when I have a keyboard bigger than a few square centimetres.
Thank you to Silje for sending us the link to this now-sold apartment that was recently listed in Oslo, Norway. She says this is typical of the style that is happening there at the moment and I have to say, it is very easy on the eye! The colour palette is so warm and inviting. Combined with the exposed brick walls, the bright light flowing through each room and the collection of greenery it is no wonder this apartment was snapped up! Link here.
