Making Spaces

Posted on Thu, 25 Jan 2018 by KiM

Karen Knox of Making Spaces makes amazing spaces accessible to those who crave real designs for real life. Making a home look like a million bucks without spending anywhere near a million bucks. Now let me talk about this first bedroom for a moment. It is a guest bedroom! Why would you make a guest bedroom look this freaking fabulous? Your guests will never leave!! I adore every bit of this, especially that Little Greene wallpaper. And I adore it even more now that I have found some before photos.

Camu & Morrison

Posted on Wed, 24 Jan 2018 by KiM

London-based architecture and design firm Camu & Morrison have caught my eye with their contemporary style. What I love is that there is something really unique and fun in each of their spaces. Like the huge piece of art in the photo above, and thanks to the photo below I now want to find a picture light with a pink bulb!

I am blown away by this 19th century home in France, especially after coming across some before photos. It was completely renovated by architect Sophie Lallias – and you’ll see what I mean by completely when you check out the 2 before photos I added to the end of this post. I love all the black in this home, especially the kitchen and I spot one of my favourite dark wallpapers (Amime by Farrow & Ball). And thankfully the beautiful original staircase was maintained. A renovation to be proud of with a mix or original and modern elements.

My twin sister sent me this photo of her pooch Benson having a nap on me niece Isabella’s bed. 

And one from me. A couple of weekends ago I rearranged my living room (in the end, not much moved) and Lucky ended up passing out on the sofa once I had it in place. (I need to redo some of the pics I took of how the space looks now and will post ASAP)

Inspired by art

Posted on Sun, 21 Jan 2018 by KiM

I think having some bold, statement art in a home is as essential as having walls and a ceiling. This home in Madrid I found via Nuevo Estilo filled with really beautiful art is totally inspiring. I have a hard time finding art that really speaks to me but it is worth taking your time to find. On that note, I am super excited to reveal my dining room redo as soon as its done, particularly because of the art grouping I have planned (it took me almost a year to make or find the 4 pieces).
