Minimal, sleek, modern, neutral, simple. la SHED Architecture is one of my favourite architecture firms. They take the beauty of the Canadian landscape, and showcase it with clean, simple designs that blur the lines of interior and exterior regardless of the season. This home on Lac Saint-Pierre in Trois-Rivières, Québec is simply beautiful.
One more from Intimate Living Interiors. One more because I love the calm, the sense of stylish oasis in their rooms. One more because who could resist the rustic meets chic of this renovated Spanish bungalow.
Take a California home with Spanish architecture, add in some modern furnishings and some with a global feel, and throw in a few bohemian accessories and you have yourself a comfortable, put your feet up and relax space that will be a keeper for years to come. This beauty is by Rosa Beltran Design.
We can’t seem to get enough of modern farmhouse homes, and this one is no exception. especially the kitchen – that yellow zellige tile is unexpected touch and absolutely gorgeous! Another impressive project by Landed Interiors & Homes. In this Silicon Valley town near Menlo Park, we designed a home from the ground up for a young family. The clients were inspired by modern homes with Shaker simplicity and classically casual interiors. Working from the outside in, we consulted on exterior materials and window specifications, then worked with an open plan to specify the interior architecture and all finishes, creating the backdrop for traveled artwork and furnishings. The verdant palette, with its honey yellow and deep green, was hand picked for its natural cheerfulness. Modern farmhouse design finishes including contrast millwork, shiplap cabinets and trim, simple tile layouts, and a stair railing made from hog wire, traditionally an exterior material, were interpreted in a contemporary style.

You don’t need to buy a new home to get your dream kitchen. If you can work with the space you have, like Bay Area designer Nicola Salceda of Eye For Pretty did here for her clients, then you might have a winner and you don’t have to move! This space required a complete rework to enlarge the kitchen area. We worked alongside Diablo Luxury Builders, turning the family room into a space housing the new kitchen, office, and bar and opening the dining room to the new living space. We gutted each room then installed new hardwood floors, cabinetry, lighting, and other furnishings. In the guest bath, an update was needed to keep the flow of light and bright, while anchored with black details for interest.
