ROOM OF THE WEEK 2.4

Raise your hand if you have recently become completely obsessed with tile. It’s everywhere right now – and I’m definitely not talking subway tile. But do you love it enough to do it in your living room? This Room of the Week, belonging to David Stark and recently featured in NY Mag shows us how it’s done… The […]

    Beautiful tile, but I would definitely not want it throughout the house. Tile is way too hard and cold for me (even with radiant heat). For me, there is not substitute for wood floors. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Gorgeous for sure but I could not take that much pattern…..one of the reason that I can’t handle wallpaper (besides it being a miserable experience to remove) I like pattern on things easier to change (read as fear of commitment if you wish!)

    I have two favorite things here – the pattern on the floor which is trippy and totally awesome, and that coffee table, which I’m sure cost an arm and a leg but was totally worth it.

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 1.14

Scott and Scott Architects: North Vancouver House

You’ll probably be seeing me posting a lot more about kitchens around here as we are looking to start on our own kitchen renovation in March (eeek!). I’m beyond excited at all the possibilities, but of course I’ve gotten quite carried away with inspiration in the process. This Room of the Week being one of those spaces that […]

    Absolutely LOVE that marble sink. I love the look of the wood counters but as someone who has pale wood counters they are definitely not the most functional in a kitchen. We recently resanded them and coated them with three coats of matte polyurethane and they STILL are getting oil and water stains. We will definitely be picking a stone when we decide to update our kitchen :)

      I’m with you! The lighter counters look good, but don’t seem super practical. I think I would have done a concrete or something to cover them… We’re leaning towards quartz in our own home!

HOUSE TOUR :: A MODERN MOUNTAIN ESCAPE

modern mountain house tour outdoor fireplace

This past weekend my guy and I headed out for a snowy mountain adventure where cozy cabins were buried in a winter wonderland, and I couldn’t help but dream of extending this lovely time off for another week to enjoy such an escape! Alas, here we are – the first Monday of a new year […]

    Ummmm, I’m obsessed with this home! The bed, curtain choices and that dresser with metallic drawer were my favorite details.

    I am blown again at the perfection of this home. What a dream come true to stay here! May I ask from which service did you rent it from?

    Thank you!

      Oh, I WISH we were renting this! Sorry if that was confusing in my intro – we didn’t stay up in the mountains, just went for a day trip, but it had me dreaming of renting out a cabin there and locking myself in for the winter! This is a private home of a couple in Wyoming!

    Being a modern enthusiast I love this! The materials do not come across as trite because their seems to be a sense of humor with the way the elements are used. Nice balance with the color. Perfectly done in my opinion!

    “Stunningly beautiful” is the only possible way to describe this gorgeous mountain retreat. It is perfectly staged in all of it’s loveliness and has the perfect balance between rustic, chic,and modern design.
    Who wouldn’t want to spend a night (or a lifetime) in this space? Thanks for sharing. I look forward to reading and viewing more entries that reflect such beautiful and inspiring spaces.

    I have never imagined that a gorgeous housing like that in the mountains. I wonder what the house looks like during spring and fall in a mountain area. It is so majestic. Who would want to cover the windows with cheap blinds with such beauty to look out at. You can really feel the beauty of the place via this article. I am sure anybody would love to stay in this place for a vacation.

A MODERN-MEETS-TRADITIONAL FRIENDSGIVING

What happens when you mix Scandinavian sensibilities with cozy cabin moments? The perfect Thanksgiving tabletop to show off a modern, yet traditional style, that’s what. And yet – it’ so much more than that. Stay with me here… See, when I think about my girlfriends, I see strong, forward-thinking women who can definitely hold their own. And yet… we’re all […]

A MODERN + ARTISANAL INSPIRED TABLETOP

Image-2

Just two short weeks ago I was asked to design a simple but refined tabletop for a 20-person dinner at a new private space in Seattle. Since launching The Emerald Studio last year, we’ve been hard at work with interior clients, but – other than events hosted in our own space – have yet to design […]

    Your client must have been thrilled. The table is stunning! Love the floral arrangements and the silverware, dinnerware and napkins are the perfect complement! Would love to be a guest at that table…
