ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: A BOLD JEWEL BOX

Tilton Fenwick sofa detail

I’ve enjoyed putting my sourcing skills to the test lately with these more unique inspiration rooms, but this bold beauty designed by design duo Tilton Fenwick might have been the greatest challenge yet! Barely a peek into the brightly colored space offers a glimpse at how saturated it is with print, pattern and jewel tones… And, indeed, […]

IN THE DETAILS :: UNIQUE WAYS TO HANG ART

in the details unique ways to hang art raji radhakrishnan

This fall I’ve vowed to tackle the biggest part of my loft to go untouched since moving in … the art wall. While I’ve pinned many a gallery wall in my day, I managed to uncover a few more clever ways of hanging art that hadn’t really occurred to me before, which may influence the […]

    I like hanging it off center (in the corner of the room) and maybe running into another wall and I also like not hanging it at all — laying it against a wall can look modern and fresh too! Just my two cents.

    Having “just moved into a MUCH smaller space” and NOT wanting to “let go” of my paintings..I placed them in vignettes on top of my kitchen cupboards (at least tall ceilings here.) I know…I’ll think about dusting them….tomorrow… franki

ROOM OF THE WEEK 9.22

I managed to get a bit behind on posts recently so I thought we’d kick off our Monday with a seriously inspiring space I had reserved for last week’s Room of the Week! A little wild, quite masculine and delightfully luxe, I have to say this living room belonging to Ken Fulk had me at… giraffe. The bit of […]

    Love the whole look but I have to agree with Molly, that the taxidermy is not for me…however, it could be done faux style and still have the same effect. The windows are stunning and the design is simplistically elegant!

IN THE KITCHEN :: COMMERCIAL VS. CONVENTIONAL

industrial kitchen with light wood

i come from a restaurant family, so it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to a bit of a commercial style in my kitchen. After all, open shelving, plenty of stainless steel and a more ‘deconstructed’ feel isn’t anything new… But, how far is too far when taking this look into the home? The kitchen above just about […]

    It’s so funny because whenever I see photos of such beautiful kitchens (mostly on pinterest), I always surprise myself at the really big variety of styles I’m drawn to. While at heart I love my classic kitchens with a more rustic feel, I also have seen some uber-modern, sleek and minimalistic kitchens I love. That last kitchen is just the right balance though- so gorgeous and can only dream of having something like that one day!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the romantic, industrial inspired kitchen with patterned floors, as well as the rustic, traditional kitchen with the morning light flooding in!

    I like the last kitchen with the glass door and the window with flowers or herbs beside because I’m into big romantic traditionally looking kitchens. Like you said, the light is very important when you cook and for me, also the possibility to get fresh air into the room very quickly is quite essential, especially when something goes wrong during cooking. ;) I moved to Toronto a month ago and I want my new flat to be original so I’m thinking about trying vintage style. I found a list of some shops here last week and I’ve already visited some of them. They had some unique pieces even for the kitchen but I’m still not sure. What do you think about vintage kitchens? Is it a good idea? I would be thankful for any of your recommendation!

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: DARK + PREPPY

gingham study_1

Ok, I know. Dark and preppy aren’t normally words you put together. But maybe that’s why I’ve always been so into this gingham-covered room for so long now… It’s a little bit traditional, a little bit badass. I mean, it takes guts to cover an entire room with gingham, after all. And I love the […]

    I love dark & preppy – it’s kind of more like country club or a hunt room. I always remember a quote I read in a magazine that said ‘one thing overdone is kind of like not overdoing it’. I always tell myself that! :)
