A steampunk restaurant in Taiwan

Posted on Sun, 18 Oct 2020 by KiM

Dining inside restaurants is forbidden again while covid numbers skyrocket and temperatures drop here in Ottawa which means you can wear many layers and dine under a tent surrounded by heat lamps, order in or cook your own damn dinner. It’s been a while since I dined in a restaurant and I’m fairly certain I have never dined inside one that was decorated in steampunk style and I really dig this one, located in a traditional terrace house on Kaohsiung city, Taiwan, and designed by HAO Design.

Victorian chic in a historic landmark home

Posted on Wed, 4 Mar 2020 by KiM

Dream home alert!!! I am absolutely head over heels in love with this project by Seattle-based designer Michelle Dirkse. Victorian chic is what I would call this. “We want it to look like a haunted mansion.” Our clients’ request was one that we had never heard before and we were excited to explore it. The historic landmark home needed major work on the second floor. We completely re-developed the floorplan for the existing 6 bedroom 2 bath layout. By relocating walls with the help of a structural engineer and converting one of the bedrooms into an appropriately sized master bathroom, the new floorplan served the clients’ as they needed. With no plans to have others live in the home with them, we were able to convert 2 rooms into a large art studio with a lounge area. Another room was converted to a den, one to a dressing room and the last to the master bathroom. (The bathroom – OMGGGG!!!)

I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on The Village. Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?

When I spotted this apartment designed by cityhomeCOLLECTIVE I wanted to jump up on my desk and shout YES YES YESSSSS!!! The vibe here is edgy, a bit gothic and a style I am completely in love with. If this would take the place of the completely overdone bohemian style that everyone is doing these days I would be sooooo happy.
