This landscaping is everything landscaping should be. Considerate of the colour scheme of the home (purple/magenta in this case), a mix of wood and concrete to keep it from being too harsh, terraced to easily create zones, includes a water feature, integrated lighting…. We transformed this garden from a weed-covered dirt hill into a beautiful living space with the use of terracing. Our goal for any garden is to make it functional, and this design utilizes every inch of space with an outdoor office, a vegetable/cutting garden, a dining deck, fire pit, and barbecue with seating area. These clients like to entertain, and can open their kitchen doors to connect directly with the garden. Built in wood and concrete benches add sculptural interest and the concrete bench absorbs warmth when the fire feature is lit. By Growsgreen.

A restored and modernized Brooklyn brownstone

Posted on Fri, 15 Jan 2021 by KiM

It’s been a minute since I shared a Brooklyn brownstone on the blog. More often these days it’s London Victorians that I come across that make my heart skip a beat but the home of interior designer Gillian Dubin reminded me how fabulous brownstones can be – especially with this much of its original architecture maintained and restored. This home in particular is blowing my mind. From ceilings to floors, the details are beyond incredible. (Photos: Noe DeWitt)

You may still be wrapping your brain around what is going on in my last post but I am smitten so I’m about to stir things up even more with what seems to be Vincent Darré‘s Paris office/showroom. The woodwork alone is making my heart skip a beat. Lawd half mursey!

Bright, warm and neutral in Barcelona

Posted on Tue, 5 Jan 2021 by KiM

Bright, warm, neutral and an organic vibe in this Barcelona home leaves me smitten. Putxet House designed by The Room Studio. We expanded the upper floors and reconfigured the spaces. This house measuring 700 m2 house in the upper area of ​​Barcelona is large, bright, and functional. Both facades of the house were kept intact, respecting the structure’s original state and paying homage to its history. The large staircase was made on site and functions as the heart of the house. Next to it is located the courtyard, which extends vertically through the house. An industrial style was achieved without losing warmth by using natural woods combined with metals, hydraulic tiles, and microcement.

Beata Heuman does Nantucket

Posted on Thu, 17 Dec 2020 by KiM

Beata Heuman does it again. Losing me in these photos of her Nantucket project where she seems to be a bit more restrained in her colour palette than normal but still a wonderfully charming home. Intriguing light fixtures, antique/vintage furnishings, checkerboard painted floors, fun artwork – all leaving me smitten.
