The Provence home of Italian interior designer and antiques dealer Enrica Stabile of Solamente Giovedi is exactly what I envision when I think of a home in the south of France countryside. It is filled with an incredible collection of antiques and vintage, and arranged picture perfectly in each room. That kitchen makes me want to cry it’s so beautiful.

Lauren Lothrop Caron of Studio Laloc added soooo much warmth, personality and inviting touches to this historic Capitol Hill, Seattle home that I could not love it more. Lots of vintage finds, the most beautiful custom made sofa in a unique fabric (‘Flying Ducks Velvet’ by Mulberry Home), a dining room wrapped in Willian Morris wallpaper, the prettiest pink bedroom….I could definitively move right in.

Bold shapes and colours in a Vancouver home

Posted on Fri, 2 Dec 2022 by KiM

Taking a home that is devoid of personality, colour and texture, and breathing new life into its walls is something that brings us unending joy. Nestled in Vancouver’s British Properties, the exterior of this stunning modernist-style home didn’t match its bland interior. The extensive 12-month renovation saw the home take on a new and exciting persona. The clients had asked us to be bold, experimental and create something not easily reproducible. Inspired by the bungalow-style homes of the Hollywood Hills, we took a page from days gone by and married a more modern aesthetic with one that felt classic and with real history. Our homes should reflect what we want to see in the world, and for this homeowner that meant boldness, colour and warmth. The furniture and decor were curated and sourced globally, with cutting-edge design paired with seamlessly with antique pieces.
Another project by PlaidFox Studio, this one is more modern and what they’re known for, whilst oozing with creativity and personality. I am obsessed with Montreal’s Lambert & Fils lighting and the Parc collection lights over the kitchen island look incredible. (Photos: Ema Peter)

A Hudson farmhouse

Posted on Tue, 27 Sep 2022 by KiM

Our design strategy centered on deferring to some of the important rustic elements while introducing color and pattern and emphasizing handmade materials. In collaboration with our client, we selected and procured all finishes and furnishings, including vintage lighting and furniture to pair with modern classics and custom designs. Intricate patterns and bursts of color were concentrated within some of the smaller spaces to allow the larger areas to act as a neutral foreground to the stunning views and gardens surrounding the property. The clients wanted to highlight a collection of artifacts from their travels, so these were creatively worked into the program.

Harry Heissmann

Posted on Tue, 27 Sep 2022 by KiM

New York based interior designer Harry Heissmann can do it all, and then some. Harry moves effortlessly from traditional to contemporary and everything in between, which prompted him to describe his style as ‘client-centric’. With a penchant for maximalism, whimsy and an apparent obsession with exotic animals, his spaces are destined to put a smile on your face.
