I am head over heels over this kitchen. Every inch if it. The drama of the contrast between black and white, with gold tones added in wood, art and the pendant, the soapstone countertops and integrated sink, the Indonesian rosewood armoire pantry (a Kijiji steal)….and perhaps my favourite touch is the fact that designer Inez Mazzotta (Kelly Hopter Interiors) left the window casings white and painted the rest of the window black. Graphic with a touch of subtlety.

Lots of brightness and warmth in this Michigan home designed by Jean Stoffer. It is a wonderful example of how to break up lots of white with some dark moments. The black front door, the dark kitchen coffee bar, the charcoal tile and millwork in the mudroom, the navy wainscotting and ceiling in the dining room, the dark green nursery…. all add drama and coziness.
I am completely smitten with this stunning Florida home designed by Bohlert Massey. The architectural details are extraordinary, and highlight the global treasures found throughout each room. With an eclectic mix of antique furnishings from different eras and layers of textiles and materials, it’s a feast for the eyes.

I have a case of serious kitchen envy thanks to Alessia and Sarah of Chicago/Detroit based design firm reDesign. This kitchen, pantry, mudroom and laundry renovation was inspired by a trip to the South of France. The original floor plan was choppy and unified, which we used to our advantage to create functional work rooms while opening up the kitchen and dining areas. Our clients had a long list of needs, like a cathedral ceiling and access to the side entry, which we were able to navigate through careful space planning. To keep things feeling cohesive, sourced complimentary materials through each space, differentiating them through custom details.
I am loving these spaces by Newport Beach, California interior design firm Prairie. Bright and inviting, modern yet warm. A definite California vibe that draws you in with its charm and doesn’t want to let go.
