Montana home by Anna Burke

In honour of the cold weather, I decided to share a Montana winter retreat designed by Anna Burke Interiors. I recently featured an East Hampton home from Anna on the blog and I just keep coming back for more! I love her unique take on design. This home is stunning! I would love to cozy up here in front of the stone faced fireplace with a good book and a cup of joe!That rustic wood coffee table!The views are divine! Love the softness in this bedroom… The style doesn’t quit in this home, even the recreation room is done to…

Studio_Munge_La-Societé_21

   Just the other day I was enjoying a cup of tea and indulging in a little Pinterest therapy when I came across the title photo (above) in my feed. I thought to myself…oh la la… that is one chic little Parisian bistro! I have to see more! I clicked on the image, and to my surprise, I was brought to Studio Munge’s Portfolio page where I learned that this little piece of heaven is located right here in Toronto! Why did I not know this was here? And more importantly…when can I come for dinner? The restaurant is called La Société and it’s…

Becki Owens Style by Clark Martin 1

   Hello, and welcome back! I hope the holidays were good to you. We were buried in turkey dinners, delicious wine and sugar cookies for two days. It’s nice to get back to writing and start looking forward to the new year. Below is a lovely house tour from designer Becki Owens. She is known for creating beautiful and chic interiors.

Interior Designer Becki Owens 5

   Happy Wednesday everyone! Today, I’m featuring a beautiful project by Becki Owens. The photos below are from her  “Alta South Project.” Becki is a blogger, interior designer, wallpaper/textile designer and a mother of four who lives in Orange County, California. I would describe Becki as talented, driven and inspiring. When I came across her Instagram account, I knew I had to reach out to her. One look at the room she designed below and I couldn’t help but melt! When Becki was a little girl, her father owned a paint store and both parents remodelled homes in their spare time. Their…

Newport Beach Interior Designer Kelly Nutt1

   As we get further into winter, I find myself dreaming about the beach. All I really want to do this week is book a flight to California and enjoy a Pina Colada in the sunshine! Right now I need a healthy dose of summer. This is the perfect time to feature a seashore residence designed by Kelly Nutt. I contacted Kelly last week and she was nice enough to allow me to share this project with you! Kelly is known for her soft and sophisticated designs. She mixes modern materials with playful fabrics to create her signature relaxed style. After working…

When I contacted her earlier this week, I was delighted to hear that she was open to allowing me to share her work with you. Anna studied at the Parson’s School of Design and has worked under celebrated interior designer, Celerie Kemble.…

Genevieve Gorder

The extraordinary Genevieve Gorder recently redesigned and renovated her New York City brownstone. The project took 18 months to complete and was documented on Home & Garden Television. Genevieve and her daughter lived in the home prior to the renovation for a number of years. It features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on two floors. This home has so much history and character! It was originally built over 150 years ago. I really love what Genevieve came up with! Here are some shots from her website portfolio at www.genevievegorder.comWhat an unexpected kitchen! I love the white marble and the rolling ladder.…

WindsorSmith Interior Design 8

Can I just tell you how much I love Interior Designer Windsor Smith? I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that looking at photos of her home in Brentwood, L.A. is giving me home decor heart ache! When I discover someone like Windsor, I honestly start to feel light headed. If you live for interior design like I do, you know the feeling! I only get this feeling when I see a home that combines great taste, texture, style and elegance. She has me light headed with delight!  Windsor is one talented woman, she is also a published author, home decor…

NYC Apartment , Jamie Drake 3

Interior Designer, Jamie Drake is not shy when it comes to colour. He is known for injecting oodles of bright colour into his client’s homes. Which made me wonder if he walks the talk when it comes to colour in his own home. I was pleasantly surprised to find that his New York City apartment, in the western edge of the Chelsea neighbourhood was saturated with it! At over 3000 square feet, this is not the tiny shoe box that most New Yorkers live in. His apartment even comes with a very impressive perk, his own parking space attached to…
