Such soothing shades of neutrals in this Marin County, California home designed by Mark D. Sikes. Makes for such warm, inviting spaces that seem effortless and timeless. The star of the show in my opinion is that fantastic piece of art in the photo above. Gorgeous!!
Neutral walls and floors call for bold accessorizing. In this case Shauna Glenn went all out in the colour and pattern department to turn her home from bland into WOW!!! I had to start this post off with her bathroom because it is drop dead gorgeous!
I had to share another to-die-for home designed by the talented folks of cityhomeCOLLECTIVE. Modern and a bit mid-century, with black and brass accents to add some drama and wood to keep things warm. I want that kitchen soooo badly, but I would settle for the rug in the space above.
I absolutely adore this house but I have really no idea what to call this. The architecture looks at times mid-century, or Spanish with a bit of 70’s hotel in the backyard. The decor style is retro mixed with modern and ethnic and a bit gothic….. Well, whatever this is I FREAKING LOVE IT!!! I have been a fan of Salt Lake City’s cityhomeCOLLECTIVE for a while now as they have such a unique, edgy, bold style and this project has to be my absolute favourite.
Now this is one seriously cool remodel. It is so good I sent some photos of the kitchen to one of my sisters who is looking to renovate hers soon. I hope to gawd hers ends up looking similar. Not many kitchens have a little funk like this one. Kudos to Veneer Designs on a job really well done. Let’s start with a before photo:
I really love this home in Toluca Lake, LA designed by Barbie Palomino. It is eclectic with bits of drama including unique wall art, accent colours used in rugs and textiles, gallery walls and some black. And featuring an adorable little pooch for added awesomeness.
Though this home is not really furnished I had to share because I have been dreaming about living in a rough, industrial, loft-like home for at least the past 20 years. Nothing like this exists in Ottawa so I can keep dreaming but if someone has £1,995,000 and is looking for something in London to put your stamp on, scoop this one up! Never mind that it looks like rats were eating the kitchen cupboards, and the painted floorboards are a bit rough…this 3 bedroom, 2,000 sq ft over 4 floors conversion from furniture-restoration workshops built in 1905 has SUCH AMAZING BONES. AH MAH GAWD!!! Listing here via The Modern House.
As promised here are the balconies, front porch and backyard of Jennifer Scott‘s former home. As awesome as the interior. It is so important up here in Canada to have inviting outdoor spaces to take advantage of when the weather is decent.
This was, up until recently, the Vancouver home of stylist and designer Jennifer Scott and it is sooooo charming and girly and eclectic. You can read all about it in this blog post, but I just wanted to point out how awesome her finds are from her trip to Morocco, and how evident her love of vintage finds is. Her home is so fantastic I had to include a part 2 coming up later of the outdoor spaces.
