Bright white and pale neutrals

Posted on Tue, 1 Dec 2020 by KiM

It has been a few years since I featured the work of Vancouver based design firm Hazel and Brown. It seems their modis operandi continues to be white and white and more white with some pale neutrals mixed in. It’s contemporary, inviting and timeless. (Photos: Ema Peters)

A bathroom for everyday of the week

Posted on Thu, 26 Nov 2020 by midcenturyjo

OK, OK that title was a little bit of click bait but part of me wishes it was true. The bathrooms in this new construction in Rye, NY by Crystal Sinclair Designs are so fabulous I almost wish there were 3 more to enjoy. To top it all off the white upon white kitchen with its contrasting black window trims and blonde wood floors is clean and contemporary with a classic twist.

Muted and feminine

Dallas-based interior designer Shannon Bowers does it again with lots of muted tones and in this particular project, a touch of femininity with pinks and roses and a disparate collection of antique furnishings. Another A+ project.

Influences of nature and Europe

Posted on Tue, 17 Nov 2020 by KiM

There is something so incredibly peaceful and comforting about a home filled with white and pale wood. This 1970s structure underwent major renovations and the results leave you to believe the home has been around much longer than that. A very neutral colour palette and many European antiques are a welcome addition. I could not love this more. (And that antique stone sink in the kitchen! SWOON!) Designed by Shannon Bowers.

Martha’s Vineyard farmhouse

Posted on Fri, 13 Nov 2020 by KiM

A perfect summer retreat. On a bucolic parcel of land in Chilmark, Sullivan + Associates and White Arrow transformed the town’s original post office into a contemporary Farmhouse. Our clients love to cook and entertain, so we designed their kitchen with a beautiful blue Lacanche oven, butternut and marble work surfaces, Waterworks fixtures, custom cabinetry to conceal top-of-the-line appliances, and a nearby stocked pantry. The home’s interiors take inspiration in the nearby ocean and farmland, with indigo-dyed canvas, warm textural linen, natural fibers, and leather.

I am forever a supporter of dark accents to an otherwise neutral colour scheme. It’s the drama that every home requires.
