Love Lane

Posted on Mon, 23 Aug 2021 by KiM

Loving the colourful traditional+contemporary feels of this home designed by Newton, Massachusetts based Liz Caan. Love Lane was a true labor of love for Liz and her team. The clients were moving from the city and this charming Tudor would become the home that their three small children would grow up in. Liz enlisted an architect and contractor to help correct some of the home’s misgivings that had happened over the years from previous owners. In an 18 month span, Liz and her team gave this home new life by renovating the bathrooms, updating the kitchen, moving a laundry room and reconfiguring a portion of the second floor and the master suite, and finally, decorating and furnishing the entire home. We set out to create a home that was colorful and inspiring, setting the stage for many years of happy memories for this young family of five.

Colour love

“Ratifying Newton’s law of opposites attracting, high chroma finishes mingle with raw instinct and dollops of warm spice tones with nurturing potency. Olive green, turmeric and peach are the binary shades that link the spaces, in turn maximising the modest 55 SQM floorplan – from joinery to bed linen and antique kilims.”

Think colour, texture and finesse. From modest to fun and fabulous by Sydney-based YSG.

Colour vs white and grey

Posted on Wed, 28 Jul 2021 by KiM

Back in 2017 Jo shared some spaces that were done in rich yet muted colours by Belgian designer Natalie Haegeman. I was perusing her portfolio and was mesmerized by both her colourful and neutral spaces and wanted to share some more of her work here. So moody with lots of antiques and textures and patinas. Brilliant.

Sunday at a beauty bar & cocktail lounge

Posted on Sun, 4 Jul 2021 by KiM

Welcome to Majesty’s Pleasure, a beauty bar & cocktail lounge in Toronto. The concept was the dreamland of an it-girl, contemporary and feminine with an unapologetic use of colour and materiality. Layered chainette fringe drapes, a marble sink that transforms into a champagne well and DJ booth, and some neon make this space super fun and unique. Designed by Author. (Photos: Niamh Barry)

Working on a Saturday

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. Lola in Auckland by CTRL Space.
