The Renovation

This 90 year old house In Sweden was left on the market for a long time until one brave couple saw its potential. One year and many layers of wallpaper later they had completed the renovation and to wonderful effect. Thoughtfully done keeping some of the old and adding new where necessary. Simple and stunning...

Bright White, Beautiful Architecture

Well it has been a crazy busy week as I went to New York to pick up my daughter from school. She is here in Montreal for the summer and I love having her back home! We have lots of projects in the works and I look forward to showing you soon. 

Check out the amazing mouldings in this 1902 apartment designed by architect Gustav O. Johansson! Stunning!! Love the styling as well...

 

Enjoy!

Textured Blue

Love seeing blue and white... in a home, in clothing, on dishes...anywhere really and these are some great examples of all of these. What is really great is the wonderful texture and depth of these prints in white and blue...so beautiful!

Hope you are having a good weekend!

Dare to Compare: Bedroom and Food Styling

Another round of comparing home and food styling trends. I really love how the trend of wood in the home has found its way into food accessories such as salad utensils and cheeseboards. This natural look mixed with heavier handmade ceramics is one I love naturally and fits so well with the rustic styling in so many of the homes.

Studio Space with Style

Such a sweet studio space that features the living room in one corner and the bedroom in the opposite corner. A separate kitchen and eating area divide up the space nicely and the big windows in both rooms are so tall and bring in great light making it feel much larger.  I love the mouldings in these old Swedish apartments. Lovely....

Summer Linen

Summer is around the corner...ok spring just started but I am hopeful....and nothing says summer like linen. I love linen and have it all over my house and in my wardrobe. It's this time of year I change my heavy down comforter to a light linen blanket and pull out the linen pants and jackets. The more wrinkled the better in my books!

Colour Meets Rustic...and a Disco Ball!

This month Vogue Living features this amazing Manhattan apartment. I am not always a fan of lots of bright colours but the way this apartment comes together is so well done. A great mix of modern, classic and rustic that makes this feel new and approachable....and really. How can you not love a place that has a vintage disco ball in the bathroom! There are many mores pictures here on Vogue Living....

Neutral Territory

This is such a great little apartment in black and white and grey. Small and simple it proves you do not need to spend a ton of money or a big space to have super style. The wonderful wallpaper in the bedroom is the perfect backdrop to the neutral bed and accessories. Can you spot all of the Ikea pieces in the room?

pastel edwardian

This pastel beauty is a renovated Edwardian brought to a new life with a sleek and modern look. The light added through skylights and tall windows and the simple decor are so gorgeous! Don't you love the tones of pastel on the walls and through the accessories! With a touch of black to anchor the room it all feels so calm and peaceful .
