A Victorian townhouse in London with mid century touches

I had to share this Victorian townhouse I spotted from the March issue of Homes & Gardens magazine because it’s everything I love all mixed together in one gorgeous package. A restored heritage home with traditional details, a neutral colour palette, mid-century furnishings, vintage glam light fixtures, brass accents throughout, a modern custom kitchen and and an outdoor space make this home pretty much perfection.

A Chelsea apartment designed as a gentleman’s club

Everything British designer Hubert Zandberg touches turns to gold. I absolutely adore every interior design project this man has taken on. This one is no exception. This two-bedroom Chelsea apartment was renovated and designed to offer his out-of-town client a playful take on his own private gentleman’s club for short stays and meetings. Drama as soon as you enter with bold wallpaper (used throughout) and large scale furnishings, then the masculine vibe and dark colours stand out throughout the rest of the apartment. It is really stunning.

A London townhouse awash in colour and pattern

A combination of some really gorgeous wallpapers, some beautiful jewel toned accent colours, a breathtaking art collection and some graphic patterned textiles make this London townhouse incredibly dynamic and playful. A total jem by the master (as it runs in the family) Ashley Hicks

Spaces by Daniela Tosca York

Before we head into the Easter long weekend (we’ll still be blogging each day just a bit less than usual) here is a glimpse into the minimalist yet dramatic world of British designer Daniela Tosca York. Pretty and glam with some pink, marble and large scale art. XOXO.

A concrete studio in Seattle

If I could convince husband that our dilapidated garage needs to be replaced with something like this I would be SO stoked! This space designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Kundig would be a dream come true (although maybe in wood instead of concrete). The Brain is a 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory where the client, a filmmaker, can work out ideas. Physically, that neighborhood birthplace of invention, the garage, provides the conceptual model. The form is essentially a cast-in-place concrete box, intended to be a strong yet neutral background that provides complete flexibility to adapt the space at will. Inserted into the box along the north wall is a steel mezzanine. All interior structures are made using raw, hot-rolled steel sheets.

Serious loft love

I am still lusting over lofts and even though I have shared some of these photos before I have not shared this loft as a whole yet and absolutely needed to. A weathered wood delight with the most beautiful art gallery wall in the living room, with a sexy staircase, even sexier bathtub and a sweet rooftop patio….I’m seriously dying over this loft.

A nautical summer retreat in Sag Harbour

When I think of summer I start dreaming about cottages and cabins and beach houses, and this summer retreat in Sag Harbour, New York is a little gem and a great place to spend warm summer weekends. Designed by Elizabeth Cooper, its nautical vibe with blues, stripes, pops of red and shiplap works so well in this environment. And those bleached wood floors have me swooning.

A pretty Swedish apartment in a 1930s building

I absolutely adore this apartment for sale in a 1930s buidling in Copenhagen. Many of its original features have been lovingly restored to its former glory such as the beautiful wood floors, limestone window sills, wardrobes and fireplace. Add in some pretty pastel walls, a bit of wallpaper, some gorgeous art and modern furniture, and a bonus mezzanine space and you have quite a beauty. (Thank you Silje for the link to this space on Stadshem).

A renovated home in black and white

This home in Winnipeg, Manitoba was given a main floor renovation and Jaclyn Peters gave the space a modern and minimalist makeover with an earthy vibe that I love. We started with oiled white oak hardwood flooring and a neutral color palette.  The kitchen was completely gutted including the builder basic corner pantry and the breakfast nook was utilized to create space for a new large island topped with Quartz countertops and seating for 5. We added two floating white oak shelves for warmth and texture, then a classic white subway tile backsplash and industrial lighting by Schoolhouse Electric. Two windows flanking the new marble fireplace surround were added to the living room, as well as custom made white oak floating cabinets and a custom media stand.  All new furniture, rugs and accessories create a cozy space to entertain. The Scandinavian inspired powder bath features charcoal slate tile, black millwork, white quartz counters, black pendant light and more art from the homeowner’s collection.

A cabin with river views

The best little weekend getaway is right here in Olympic Peninsula, Washington with views of the Sol Duc River. The design of this cabin by Tom Kundig is absolutely brilliant. This 350-square-foot cabin is a small perch for its occupant. It is located in one of the few temperate rainforests in the world, and «rainforest» here means wet and rather cold, as opposed to wet and hot. Putting the cabin on stilts protects it from the clammy dampness and occasional flooding. The owner is an avid steelhead fisherman. The design allows him and his wife to arrive at this remote location, open the place up, and get to fishing as quickly as possible. The shutters are operated manually via custom steel rods. The large panels slide on hardware that was originally designed for sliding barn doors, attached to the steel roof beam structure.

A photographer’s newly built home in Copenhagen

Architecture, interior and design practice Studio David Thulstrup knows how to create beauty from something very raw and industrial, making this home a total urban dream. The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff (who took these photos) commissioned us for his private residence in Copenhagen. Our inspiration evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the old garage on site. The design is focused around a central mirror-clad atrium, which floods all three floors of the residence with natural light. The atrium is lush with specially selected grasses, plants and a feature tree which is visible from all floors — creating a central and bright oasis.

Art, patterns and textures

Architectural and interior designer Hubert Zandberg continues to blow my mind with the reconfiguration and design of this 4 story family home located in Little Venice, London. Brilliant at displaying unique furniture and oddities, Hubert could not be more perfect for this project as the homeowners have a collection of archaeological and pre-Islamic artefacts and contemporary art. He certainly did these collections justice.

Traditional with a twist

I continue to baffle myself with my sudden obsession with all things traditional, but when it’s traditional with a bit of a modern twist I am ALL OVER THAT. British interior designer Ben Pentreath takes typical English traditional decor and adds a bohemian and modern flair to it so it appeals to a younger generation who don’t like to sit on plastic covered sofas and who are ok with footprints on the plush carpet.

Whether traditional or transitional, Nashville interior designer Landy Gardner created spaces that are quite unique with impeccable attention to detail. I am not sure which style I prefer — perhaps the traditional because marble fireplace + blingy crystal chandelier = LOVE!!! (More of Landy’s work can be found here)

An explosion of colour

I tend to use non-neutral colour in my home subtly, but the homeowners of this 190 sq m house in Norway have embraced colour in bold and playful ways. That’s why I wanted to share this home. I love to see people decorate to suit their personalities and to have fun with it (pretty obvious by the sign in the entryway LOL) instead of following trends and taking it too seriously.

Mid-century Parisian chic in Monaco

An apartment in Monaco can only be one thing — STYLISH! This mid-century vibing pad has a Parisian chic vibe that I have come to expect from Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet. The lighting throughout this space is fantastic — especially that spunik light over the dining table. WOWZERS!!! (No, I don’t understand the point of the hunk of steak art either — to each their own as they say…)

Classic spaces by VSP Interiors

Elegant and classic, timeless with subtle modern touches, Henriette von Stockhausen and Jane Petti of British design firm VSP Interiors are creating drama with mostly traditional spaces (add in the occasional modern kitchen). I adore this first living room — the wallpaper is gorgeous and with the layers of furnishings and accessories it’s busy but the resulting space works and it’s fabulously bold.

Bedroom eye candy

I am totally in love with this bedroom by Katie Leede. It is from a 2012 Hamptons showhouse and I am dying over the beautiful blue (what would you call this shade?), the graphic floral wallpaper, the upholstered sleigh bed, the shag rug, that incredible light fixture… YES PLEASE!!!

How Ashley Hicks’ magically transformed his rental apartment

Low ceilings, beige wall-to-wall carpet, plain doors, ugly windows, a grim kitchen….living in a rental isn’t easy but designer Ashley Hicks certainly worked magic with his rental apartment. Graphic paint treatment on the walls, a photo transparency covering an ugly window, upholstery nails fancying up doors, paint details on cheap linen roller blinds, pendant lights made from copper and black paint, a handmade screen using a map of London to hide another ugly window, red vinyl and striped webbing used to spruce up a hallway, and the list goes on. Ashley may have spent a ton of time and energy transforming his apartment and customizing every square inch but the result is incredibly unique and dynamic and clearly well worth it.

Stalking a home in Yellowknife

Yellowknife, Northwest Territories has a special place in my family’s heart. Many years ago when my twin sister and I were starting university here in Ottawa, the rest of the family moved to Yellowknife for a few years. Yellowknife is WAY up north and is quite a unique city. It mostly consists of rock and lakes not much else. The house my folks bought was on one of the few streets where the yards had grass (it was considered a luxury given the freezing climate and terrible quality of earth) and the trees were not short little evergreens. There are many creative types up there who over the years have built many really cool homes…some on water and some, like in this case, on the side of a rock face. This house in Old Town is one everyone had greatly admired and we had always wondered what it looked like inside. 20 years later we finally know. 🙂

Craving outdoor spaces

Summer so far has been wet and cold and I am not very happy about it. Coupled with the fact that my entire yard continues to look like a neglected disaster I was hitting up Inside Out magazine’s website for some inspiration and found these dreamy spaces. Oh, how I wish I could get someone here to do some landscaping and build me a she-shed/gazebo thing, and make the sun come out and temperatures soar…

Reader’s home — Andrew’s renovated minimalist flat in Madrid

In February a reader named Andrew sent over photos of his Devon Rex for Monday’s Pets on Furniture, and the other day he send along some photos to his newly renovated flat in Madrid. A huge congrats to him as it is an incredibly drastic transformation that turned out beautifully, and was recently featured in AD Spain. I have to start with a few before photos. It turns out it had been home to squatters for 20 years before Andrew got his hands it. It had no working bathroom, lowered ceilings, ruined floor and walls….it was pretty hideous.

A traditional home by Tammy Connor

\

A little bit of traditional to end off the work week. This home designed by South Carolina/Alabama based Tammy Connor is exquisite, carefully curated yet inviting and that is the traditional I enjoy. I am trying to decide what I love more — that foyer with the painted mural or the dining spaces. I am dying over those upholstered dining chairs — would love to see them against a weathered harvest table. Yum!

And I typically hate white walls. Ultra fabulous work by Chicago designer Kara Mann

A bright Tudor Revival in Hancock Park, LA

I wanted to share another project by interior designer Katherine Carter. This 1921, 8,500 sq ft Tudor Revivial in Hancock Park, LA was likely once dark and dreary and is now light-filled and modern yet it maintains some of the original historic details (now covered in white paint it appears). I would have loved seeing some before photos of this one.

Main Street Oriental Rugs is having a sale!

Yatzer

Happy Friday folks! I am always on the hunt for great bargains and I am a sucker for rugs. I use them in every room in my house (I just did a quick mental check and I really do have at least 1 in every room) as it is my favourite way to add warmth, texture and colour to a space. I am here to share the news that Main Street Oriental Rugs is currently offering closeout prices on their handmade, 100% natural wool Tibetan & Nepalese area rugs. WOOT!!! They also have some new arrivals of hand-knotted, 100% natural wool vintage Persian Heriz rugs. I highly advise you go check them out and score yourself a sweet deal on a new rug. Here are some samples of the Tibetan and Nepalese rugs on super sale right now (I absolutely adore the first one)…

A Park Avenue loft

I am a big fan of New York City-based interior design firm The New Design Project and was stoked to hear from them about this new project. This absolutely stunning loft is a dream and furnished impeccably, including a collection of lighting that is to die for. Fresh and serene, this is a Park Avenue loft with a decidedly downtown feel. The space is refined and elegant but modern and relaxed. Sculptural lighting, such as the Lariat 3 by Apparatus Studio and String Light by Michael Anastassiades, adds drama and emphasizes the high ceilings, whilst oversized artwork and bold textiles, such as the Diego rug by Eskayel, add color and depth.  Iconic mid-century pieces inspired by the designs of Hans Wegner, Poul Kjaerholm and Eero Saarinen, are paired with more contemporary custom millwork, such as the black and brass floating wall shelves, floating upholstered bench, and marble and black oak nightstands.  A curated collection of accessories in a mix of sizes, shapes and materials, completes the scheme.

BoConcept

I have been an admirer of modern furniture brand BoConcept for as long as I can remember. They are masters at creating modern functional furniture that at the same time is timeless and works in every style of home. I also love the Danish vibe of their collections. Comfort and clean lines with a stylish simplicity that is so appealing. And they carry everything from sofas and chairs to dining tables, storage units, beds and all the accessories you need to add some pizzazz to your space. Very cool — I just found out they offer interior design services too. Genius! They’ll tell you what to purchase and how to arrange it too! Oh — and as a bonus — Mads Mikkelsen is featured in their 2017 catalogue. *SWOON* Here is just a taste of some stand-out pieces they carry….

A New York City loft

Another project by Threshold Interiors I had to share because it’s SO nice to see a loft not decorated with an industrial vibe.

The result is much more homey and charming.

Sunset Magazine idea house by Geremia Design

The narrative of the Sunset Bay Area Idea House grew through an embrace of the Northern Californian lifestyle that values fine art, craft, fresh produce, and nature. The curated interior features innovative materials & artisan finishes to promote warmth to the contemporary shell. The light oak floors and warm white walls provide a soft backdrop for rich wall coverings, custom millwork & newly introduced Heath tile to color the home. A William Morris print serves as a nontraditional kitchen backsplash and a metallic Brasscloth by Calico on the master bedroom ceiling subtly fades in tone, drawing your eye to the striking view of the San Francisco Bay. The design intention was to connect the Sunset Brand to the Geremia aesthetic, offering an opportunity to juxtapose accessible furnishings with curated pieces from our artisan friends and vintage resources. A number of Bay Area artists are represented through fine art, custom textiles, ceramics and process work direct from their studio. A beautiful home with beautiful views.

A small minimalist apartment in Bucharest

Architect and interior designer Alex Calin sent in this project of a small, Nordic-inspired minimalist apartment that I wanted to share: The studio has about 40 sqm and it is located downtown Bucharest, in a building located near the Cismigiu park, in a historical city center. By the time we started the project, nobody had made changes or improvements of any kind from the date of commissioning of the use, somewhere in the mid 60s. The significant changes were losing the balcony and inserting it into living space. This is how a little space for conversation and a work area appeared and at the same time this has increased glass surface adding up extra light. One of the former windows has got a bookshelf open on both sides that filters light in the sleeping area and delineates pleasantly the interior space. The furnishings are in shades of white, with small touches of oak and dotted here and there by a few spots black. The minimal furniture has a touch of nordic inspiration. All the furniture was designed and executed together with partners from Mobilaunicat.ro and is made to completely cover the minimal needs posed by such a space. The owner has a passion for film and music (he works in the creative industry) so the walls are decorated with black and white portraits of several iconic characters (Tilda Swinton, David Bowie, Grace Jones and Patti Smith).

Hotel Tivoli

I need to take a trip to Tivoli, NY and stay in this fabulously decorated hotel. I adore the simplicity, playfulness, bold colours, quirky furniture and that grey trim everywhere!! Hotel Tivoli and its accompanying farm-to-table restaurant The Corner is a century-old building situated in the historic town of Tivoli, New York. Owned by painters Brice and Helen Marden, the property is filled with an eclectic collection of furniture, lighting and art. Reunion Goods & Services worked with the Mardens to infuse the space with lightness punctuated by individualistic moments. The design included a restaurant space with a custom marble bar, two dining rooms and ten unique guest rooms. The identity for the hotel and restaurant was a direct collaboration with Brice whose drawings are paired with reserved text evocative of gallery wall captions. This typography was carried throughout the space, with hand-painted numerals on doors and sparing use of color.

A renovated terrace home in Paddington

I am forever in awe of architects who are willing to maintain original features in a refurbishment whilst modernizing the structure. This narrow terrace home in Paddington, Sydney is absolutely gorgeous and has impeccable attention to detail. The little workspace nook built out of the side of the kitchen cabinet is brilliant, and I adore the skylights over the kitchen and the narrow display nooks among the upper cabinets (a great idea if you are trying to squeeze Ikea cabinets into a space that just don’t fit). A sleek, chic and fabulous home. Kudos to Tom Ferguson (TFAD) on a superb project.

Modern minimalism in Berlin

Whenever I see a home as minimalist as this I wonder how long the sparseness would last if I moved in. Like, A DAY. MAYBE TWO. This 155 sq m home is gorgeous though as-is. So much open space. As much as I love ornate moldings found in old heritage homes, the lack of it here really appeals to me. Who needs baseboards anyway?!

A Swedish apartment filled with vintage finds

Happy Easter dear DTI readers! It’s a miserable day here in Ottawa but at least the rain is turning the brown grass green and we have no snow left. Bring on summer!! Whether you celebrate Easter or not hope you have a great day with family and friends. I’m off later to my folks’ place for turkey dinner and I’m bringing the dessert (made easy thanks to an incredible bake sale the Country Cat Sanctuary held yesterday out in Kemptville). And tomorrow I hope to visit the sanctuary and bring home a super sweet, skinny little cat that I can’t get out of my head that I think needs to live in a real home and get some extra attention (that is hard when you’re living among 150 others). Anyhoo, I spotted this apartment in Malmö yesterday @ MilK Decoration and had to share because it’s a Scandinavian dream of funky vintage finds and treasures from the homeowners’ travels. Love the accents in black too.

Bilateral house by Audax

I am completely blown away by this project I stumbled upon by Toronto-based architecture firm Audax. The exterior is pretty and original to the ‘hood and then the second you walk in the front door BOOM!!! Nothing that you could have imagined. I am especially smitten with the gorgeous bathrooms and that room in the roof peak. The homeowners of Bilateral House purchased a lot with a 116-year-old Period Revival home in a mature picturesque neighbourhood in Toronto. As avid collectors of contemporary art and vintage furniture, they wanted to build a modern gallery-inspired home with high ceilings to artfully display their collections. Responding to the homeowners’ vision and the City’s requirement to keep the front half of the original house, Audax sensitively restored and rebuilt the heritage façade, and designed a modern addition in the rear. However, the design solution ensured that both sides of the house could still relate to each other. To begin, Audax faithfully reconstructed the main façade with restored brick, new stucco and wood trim. Audax also rebuilt the roof to mirror the original design. Audax’s interior design strategy followed suit with a design that both honoured the original character of the house and satisfied the homeowners’ affinity for a modern gallery aesthetic.

Old-world elegance meets vintage in Madrid

I am completely in love with this renovated 19th century apartment in Madrid. The original architectural details including exposed beams and brickwork alone have me about to pass out, let alone the fact that this space is furnished with a wonderful random assortment of antique/vintage pieces. That chandelier over the dining table is especially scrumptious. Ana Cabellos and Elisa Fernández of La Traviesa de Conde Duque worked some magic here. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Opulent spaces by Lori Morris

Unparalleled luxury. Opulent elegance. Traditional without boundaries. An avant-garde edge. Extraordinarily dramatic. Toronto-based designer Lori Morris is a force to be reckoned with. I cannot express enough how much I admire her boldness and originality. And her love of obscenely ornate moldings that make me want to cry tears of pure joy.

The Oakland home of designer Melanie Coddington

The Oakland home of Melanie Coddington has been a labor of love for the team at Coddington Design. The updated midcentury home features a playful use of pattern, as well as fun and daring colors against a neutral backdrop that will stand the test of time and trend. Multiple seating areas in the living room allow for easy entertaining and relaxing, and the bright, bold kitchen is the perfect place for family dinners. The home is pet and child friendly without sacrificing style. Such a beautiful home that is timeless, playful and colourful.

The home of French & French Interiors

Eclectic and spunky decor that is right up my alley. This is the home of Heather and Matt French of French & French Interiors based in Santa Fe, NM. Their inspiration comes from travels throughout Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and South America, and their aesthetic is a blend of antiques, fun art, and modern pieces with an international vibe. The combination is unique and beautiful.

Another Victorian beauty in the U.K.

I think I have a new item for my bucket list — move to the U.K. and live in one of these absolutely glorious Victorian homes I continue to die over. This one I especially love because would you look at the kitchen!!! It’s soooo pretty — and I am smitten with the brass details including the backsplash (I want to do this badly) and chandelier. I really REALLY love this. Located in Stamford, Lincolnshire and is available as a location home through Shoot Factory

A Victorian with a bit of modern funk

Before the weekend gets going (mine’s a bit nuts — new foster kitty arrived Wednesday), how about a glimpse into another project by Jeff Schlarb. This grand Victorian was built in 1893 and needed a bit of a facelift. With some stunning original features maintained and some modern elements added, this home is now rockin’ a new era.

Dark and light in a modern apartment

This renovated 3 bedroom apartment in Sydney, Australia is sleek and modern with a black and white colour scheme. This combination makes for a very chic and dramatic pad. The open concept space is punctuated with a kitchen design that I absolutely love — as much as I love a fabulous kitchen, it’s even more fabuolus when it doesn’t really look like a kitchen at first glance (I thought it was a dressing room!).

A loft in Dumbo by Current Interiors

I am not super happy with my pale pink dining room walls. I had considered wallpaper but thought since my foyer that leads into the dining room is wallpapered that it would be too much pattern. Now I am regretting not going for it. This Dumbo, Brooklyn loft designed by Current Interiors has 3 different wallpapers happening and I think it looks fantastic!

Mid-century modern in the English countryside

A whole pile of mid-centry modern/retro fabulousness to end off the work week. Surrounded by beautiful English countryside, this vast new-build features floor-to-ceiling windows which highlight the stunning rural location. The sensation of bringing the outside in is further emphasised through the open-plan layout which flows seamlessly from room to room, offering the perfect space for socialising. Teeming with unexpected details at every turn, iconic pieces such as an Eero Saarinen table and Warren Platner chair elevate the space from ordinary to extraordinary. A unique sunken lounge exquisitely framed by a statement pendant and futuristic basement bar with a cinema and music room offer areas for both formal and informal entertaining in this inviting country home. By London-based architectural interior design studio Oliver Burns

A New York townhouse

I get excited when I find architects who maintain as many original features as possible when renovating homes. especially when it comes to gorgeous New York townhomes and brownstones. This townhouse on 6th Avenue is pretty simple but the details are so yummy including marble fireplace surround and pocket doors with patterned glass inserts.

Carroll Gardens by Tamara Eaton

NYC based designer Tamara Eaton does not follow trends so her interiors are often eclectic and unexpected. This home with its traditional details in a loft-like setting is unpredictable, but then add in Tamara’s unique assortment of styles in the decor and you have something that is whimsical yet sophisticated.

Whimsical art in an elegant home

San Francisco designer Jeff Schlarb describes his style as simply «rad elegance», and that is precisely how I would describe this home he designed for an art collecting client. The artwork is bold and quirky and very much whimsical, and he managed to pair it with bold, modern, elegant furnishings for an overall look of cohesive radness. LOVE!!!

Traditional with ocean-course views

I came across this generously sized home recently and it is allllll kinds of pretty! Designed by Alabama based interior designer Tammy Connor, this is a beautifully refined take on traditional/transitional/whatever you want to call this. I’d like to call it warm and inviting, carefully curated and picture perfect. I would frankly be quite content with just the kitchen. That tile is glorious. (Another project can be found here) P.S. I’m a bit short on pet entries this week. If you have some send them my way: kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net, or hashtag #DTIpetsonfurniture.

Reader’s home: Jen’s cozy remodel in Vermont (for sale!)

I have dreams of one day living on lots of land and having lots of animals and enjoying lots of space and sounds of nature. Maybe I should buy reader Jen’s home now for sale in Vermont! You might remember me from this post? Anyways…We sold that house the day the sign went up in the yard. We left Texas and have spent the last 5 years in Vermont, transforming a 1978 gambrel into something I think is pretty cool (think blue shag carpeting, blue trim, dark wood). Every surface has been touched and redone. We converted the attached garage to a funky apt with a sleeping loft with pods and have been renting it out on airbnb the last 2 years. We also added the garage/barn and I went bold and painted it black! This is such an amazing place to live but packing our bags for PA. Stalking an old stone house that needs a complete rehab 🙂 Read more about Jen’s fabulous home (on over 10 acres!) via the listing here

A modern townhouse by Qanuk Interiors Inc.

I am going to go out on a limb and state that this is one of the best designed townhouses I think I have ever come across. Sarah Keenleyside (who currently has a show on HGTV called Backyard Builds with Brian McCourt, and who coincidentally hails from Ottawa) and Lindsay Konior are principals of Toronto design firm Qanuk Interiors Inc. Every square inch is so well utilized and such attention to detail. From what looks to be a custom built-in sectional, to making use of under-stairs space to house a garden, to the most stunning double height bathroom I have ever seen, and then something as simple as a stackable washer/dryer behind a custom framed out floor-length mirror. Modern but with lots of wood and touches of wood make it really warm and inviting. And is that a sunk-in planter box I spot behind the kitchen sink?! This is all soooooo fabulous.

A Craftsman beach house

What a fabulous beach house designed by Threshold Interiors! This Jersey Shore Craftsman is so pleasing to the eye with lots of fun touches like graphic floor tile (and fireplace surround), wallpaper (love that Farrow & Ball Aranami pattern in the bathroom), and the bathrooms are absolutely stunning. And what about this kitchen!! Subway tile, copper, and pale grey cabinets make it timeless and polished.

Mediterranean style in a Spanish Colonial

LOOOOVE this home designed by Los Angeles-based Chris Barrett — especially the outdoor space above! WOW!!! Steps from the sands of Santa Monica, California, this Spanish Colonial home responds to its local context, but derives its essence from a rich architectural history of Mediterranean design. The home’s furnishings and finishes are rich and comfortable, inviting homeowner and guest to relax and enjoy.

A manor house fit for a queen

Nestled within 66 acres of beautifully manicured gardens and parkland in Tunbridge Wells, England is Hepburn House, a manor befitting a queen. Or a princess. Or a really high-paid actress. The decor is fairly minimal and essentially all white so it frankly is underwhelming but what I can say is that helps to not distract from the glorious details like many fireplaces, panelled walls, incredibly detailed plasterwork, 12′ ceilings, massive windows and dark wood floors. The rooms are SO BIG. What a dream home this would be to decorate. You could fit anything anywhere. *SIGH* Another location home available via Shoot Factory

A dreamy Madrid home in gold and black

I am unequivocally, unquestionably, undeniably in love with this home. An absolute dream in shades of gold and black, it is located in Madrid and owned by model Laura Ponte. It was featured in Architectural Digest Spain back in 2009 and is apparently now for sale. If I had the zillion dollars she’s asking for it, I would throw in another zillion and demand she leave all the furnishings…or at the very least those chandeliers in the dining room. SWOON!!!

Fiona Duke and dark spaces done proper

My heart will always be with the dark and dramatic, so I was pleased as punch to discover someone shares my passion for moody, inky shades. Fiona Duke is an interior designer based in Essex, U.K. and I love her eclectic, casual style. I discovered several of these fabulous photos are of her own home so she’s designing and living in awesomeness.

A Tribeca loft where artwork is the star

This Tribeca loft designed by Elizabeth Bolognino must be home to an art collector. And a lover of cats. 🙂 Both of which make this space really appealing to me. And I am completely head over heels in love with the butterfly art installation in the dining room. SO PRETTY!!! (More of Elizabeth’s work here and here)

A converted Victorian school

Every once in a while I feature a home that I completely lust over and spend hours redecorating it in my head, and this is one of those. St. Oswald’s Place is located in an 1861 converted Victorian school building that was designed by architect Tony Fretton. Approached through a gated arch and across a cobbled courtyard, the house is set back from the road in a secluded pocket backed by Vauxhall City Farm. Entry is through a glass-roofed extension, which connects the main space with a guest annexe / study positioned around a cobbled courtyard garden. The living room is a beautifully curated space with soaring double-height ceiling and towering original windows. A large internal window looks into the mezzanine level above, which has two bedrooms and a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. Behind the chimney stack, with its open fireplace, is the galley kitchen with windows that look over the front courtyard. A short corridor beneath the mezzanine leads to a second double-height space of similar proportions and exceptional levels of natural light. A glazed door leads to a verdant communal courtyard, shared by the six flats in the building. Currently for sale for £2.4 via The Modern House

Garrow Kedigian’s Montreal townhouse

I stumbled upon the Montreal townhouse of New York interior designer Garrow Kedigian and had to share because it is all kinds of traditional fabulousness. He is a master at making classic look chic, and his colours selections are outstanding. I particularly love the colours in the dining room — that wall colour (Benjamin Moore’s Caribbean Teal) is to die for. Photos by Paul Raeside for House Beautiful

A French bistro style kitchen

Dear gawd I adore this kitchen also by Qanuk Interiors Inc.! This is what I envision what my existing tiny kitchen has the potential to be. And you can never go wrong with a french bistro style. Subway tile (I love this longer, thinner version) with dark grout is always a winner. Add in some black steel & glass shelving for a not-so-typical open shelving option and dark lower cabinets and you have a winner! Industrial style lighting installed on the hood fan — why not if lacking space? I always love a good banquette and this one is VERY GOOD. Black leather + gorg brass light fixture = LOVE!!!

A 3-room apartment in Stockholm

Keeping things simple on this Friday, the beginning of Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada, otherwise known as May 2-4 weekend (because many cases of 24 beers are consumed on this first holiday of summery weather…I on the other hand may find myself a weekend cocktail to consume copious amounts of). Plus the Ottawa Senators are kicking some Pittsburgh ass in the Stanley Cup playoffs so much partying will be had around here. And exciting stuff continues as husband and I are meeting with a designer from Lyndsay Landscape Saturday to do some planning for our horrendously embarrassing gravel pit of a front yard (we live on a very busy street and I die a slow death every day my yard looks this awful). Starting things off with some soothing eye candy in the form of this 3-room apartment currently for sale in Östermalm, Stockholm via Lagerlings. Loving the neutral colour palette and those furry dining chairs!

Several months back I featured some spaces (here and here) by Illinois-based interior designer Kate Marker and because I love her style I am sharing yet another timeless and classic home she designed with subtle modern touches. Lots of bright white with colour and texture added mostly through pillows and rugs. Makes for an easy swap-out when you are looking for a change.

Reader’s home — Pati’s small kitchen renovation

If you love dark spaces then you will remember Pati‘s home (a rental) that I featured back in March. She recently renovated her very small kitchen and as always, it is DYNAMITE and I begged her to send me photos so I could share it on the blog. She sent along a bit of info as well: Since we moved in we hated our kitchen — it was was rather dated and I had updated it with black tiles and lino flooring 10 years ago as cream tiles and green lino did not go, but I didn’t want to do anything to the doors without getting permission first. There were a few options I could try with the existing doors which I will explain in details later (for those of you who do not want to change the doors) but in the end I opted for changing the style of the doors.
