A summer house and greenhouse in Sweden

Posted on Sun, 15 Sep 2019 by KiM

With the exception of a screen door, some window screens and paint touch ups along the roof line, my she-shed is complete and I am so incredibly happy that we managed to pull this off. I will share pics as soon as I can get the yard surrounding the she-shed in a presentable state (the shed is currently surrounded by dirt) but in the meantime I had to share this summer home and greenhouse I found on Sköna hem because who doesn’t love a greenhouse! And they homeowners painted it green to blend in with the surroundings, which I why I chose to paint my she-shed green. Also, they painted their house black which I am always a HUGE fan of.

Move towards the light

Posted on Fri, 30 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s a little slice of heaven. A NYC loft with fabulous bones and an interior by design firm Sissy + Marley. Light floods in through arched windows while oak floors and exposed beams enhance the industrial feel. One moment it’s dramatic, the next serene but always a chic, always inspiring, family home. If luxury loft living in the Big Apple has been a dream of yours I suggest you move towards the light.

A renovated barn in Quebec

Posted on Mon, 19 Aug 2019 by KiM

In Mont Owl’s Head, Quebec, lived an old barn that had lost its way and fallen into ruin. The owners (who live in an adjacent home), wanting to save the barn, decided to have it renovated so their children could enjoy it. La Firme was brought on board to bring it back to life and the resulting 30 ft height structure is the coolest hangout in town.
