District Design

I recently came across the interiors of Carmel Greer of District Design, based in Washington, D.C. and WOW! The drama! Who would have thought peach walls could be so drop-dead gorgeous?!?! I chose a random selection from her portfolio, ranging from dark and moody to bright and modern.

Black and white

You can’t go wrong with black and white. Well, most of the time. In this home designed by Tamara Magel I think she nailed what can often end up be harsh when tackling this colour scheme but this is cozy, warm, and family friendly with a mild dose of glamour. Also, black windows will always have my heart. (Photos: Rikki Snyder)

A moody Swedish villa

This home in S?r?, Sweden I spotted on Residence ticks all the right boxes for me. The warm neutral walls accentuate the architecture, the green tile in the kitchen is blowing my mind, and the eclectic mix of eras in the furniture really lends itself to a storied interior. (Photos: Fanny Hansson)

Lake house luxe

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2020 by KiM

I often say I need about 6 homes to get in all the styles I really gravitate towards. In the case of this lake house if you buy one big enough you can get in several styles in one go! That may be a bit of humour but I actually love how D2 Interieurs managed to pull this off and it still be cohesive. There’s a sort of minimal earthy elegance in the foyer and Miami chic in the formal living room and a beach vibe in the casual living room and retro in a sitting room and boho retro in the main bedroom…. it may seem like alot of competing styles but it has a wonderful flow and with a fairly neutral colour palette it is a success.

Gardens by Miranda Brooks

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2020 by KiM

I am really trying to embrace the beauty of the fall season, but it is so heartbreaking knowing my days to enjoy the backyard and greenhouse with husband and cats are numbered. These gardens by landscape architect Miranda Brooks are sure to keep my spirits up and have distracted me if not momentarily from winter’s horrors that are soon to come. (Yes, I hate winter that much, especially during a pandemic when I cannot escape it)
