ROOM OF THE WEEK 9.22

ken fulk living room masculine luxe giraffe head

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! :)

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: URBANE ECLECTIC IN SPAIN

mikkel larrinaga bilbao apartment living room1

I’ve noticed a shift in my interiors taste lately… which seems to happen every few years or so. It seems natural, of course, for this to happen. If we stay stagnant, we aren’t growing, and that goes for taste and life in general! But I’m actually surprised by some of the things I’m attracted to – […]

    I totally understand this shift in style preferences. I have been finding myself leading towards some of the same things, in a way I feel like it grounds me a bit a I get older

HOUSE TOUR :: A WHARF WEEKEND GETAWAY

3.nocrop.w1800.h1330

I can hardly believe it’s nearly Labor Day weekend. The true mark of the end of summer, I’m determined to make it count, so we’ve been hunting around a bit for last-minute cabins and weekend getaway spots that we can at least take a little day trip to. But if I were on the east […]

    Love it! kitchenette – (1) countertop surface? is it zinc? (2) compact stove – searching for one for guest house and reading mixed reviews for some brands- what company makes the stove? Thanks so much!

      Kathy – I have no idea to either question! If it doesn’t tell me in the article, we’re both outta luck. You can try and see if you can get more info from the original article (linked to in the post) or from the designer? Thanks!
