Kyla Bidgood’s office redo

Posted on Fri, 9 Nov 2012 by KiM

Interior designer Kyla Bidgood emailed us about one of her latest projects – and it’s a doozy! It is the office of an up and coming tech company in Victoria, BC. She has turned an ugly commercial space into a fun and energizing work space that should generate all kinds of creative techie juices flowing. The vintage industrial vibe rocks and the accents of red really pop. LOVE IT! (So jealous – I’d die for my cubicle to be this cool). Here is some info from Kyla:

Our mandate for MediaCore’s new office was to create a vibrant, environmentally friendly, ‘non-officey’ looking office that could accommodate the company’s needs now and as they grow. Working within a modest budget, we chose affordable finishes and injected calculated pops of color and whimsy to give the space it’s playful personality. 

– yep, those are ikea kitchen cabinets
– we had all the the cabinet pulls and door hardware custom powder coated red 
– carpet tile throughout main area, created a ‘walkway’ with green accent tiles (under $5/sf)
– sourced the custom meeting room lights from a great gal on etsy 
– dry erase white board paint on all the walls in the meeting room
– large letter M was the W on a Vancouver Safeway in it’s previous life
– Also many of the items in the space now, and future purchases for them as funds free up, can be found on my MediaCore pinterest board

Wrap my in your blue embrace and whisper sweet design songs in my ear. I could live with you forever and ever. My one and only room… until I fall for another. I may be fickle but I know what I love. Just one view of antique dealer Florence Lopez‘ Parisian studio. A tease, a taste. More here.


An office in Portugal

Posted on Thu, 25 Oct 2012 by midcenturyjo

Portuguese architect João Rosado Baptista, emailed us a recent project. This office/studio renovation saw Baptista and interior designer Ana Maças Nogueiro, create a dynamic and streamlined space from a rundown two storey building and neglected courtyard. Light, bright, modern yet firmly anchored in its historical past. A warren of rooms was opened up to provide versatile spaces enabling the office to be used in multiple ways. The completely rebuilt courtyard extends the interiors and provides a private retreat. No website as yet but Baptista can be reached here.

Creative space

Fresh and bright and white and wow. Love this home office/creative space by Jesse Moyer of Jette Creative. A clean, simple aesthetic that marries the past and the present, vintage and modern.
