I have no excuse, I fell off of the blogging wagon! I have spent six months thinking about blogging and coming up with new topics but that’s all they were….thoughts. I got caught up in life and failed to take some time to nurture my creative outlet aka this blog. I have missed all of you and I am so happy to be back! Here is a quick update – I bought my first place! I have dreamed of this moment for a very long time, and more importantly I have dreamed about how I would decorate my place. But now that I finally have the chance, I’m stuck – I can’t seem to find any furniture that I like (within my limited budget obviously). Needless to say, I am frantically searching for inspiration and through this search I have come across some gorgeous Inspiring Interiors that I am so excited to share with you.
Today’s Inspiring Interior is in Cordoba Argentina and it is soooooo cool! Named “La Negrita” and located within a forest, this abode was designed to exist harmoniously within nature. The home owners gave Cordoba based architects Morini Arquitectos the goal of creating a home that would be private from the street but connected with the surrounding landscape. The result is three separate modules (garage, bedrooms and open plan living and dining room) connected by a black facade. The black walls hide the home from the street but the latter part of the home has floor to ceiling windows that connects the interior with the stunning landscape.
Cool details such wooden floors that echo the trees outside and concrete walls and ceiling give the space a warm yet clean minimal vibe. This home is filled with beautiful contrasts, my favourites being the black facade against the light from the floor to ceiling windows and the privacy from street views to the openness and embracing nature of the home to it’s natural surroundings. Love it!
What do you think of this unique masterpiece?

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Spanish designer Katty Schiebeck’s work. Clean lines, a mix of textures against a beautiful colour palette of bright white and bold colours are all hallmarks of Katty’s signature style. So when I saw pictures of a recent Barcelona based project of hers, I was pleasantly surprised to see the evolution of Katty’s style. There were still clean lines and a contrast of layered textures, but this project was darker, moodier and dramatic all the while maintaining a modern vibe of class and elegance.
Grey walls, gorgeous marble and dark herringbone floors provide the perfect backdrop for the minimalist aesthetic that Katty excels at.
This is gorgeous apartment has large windows and a large outdoor space. The cohesive design and colour palette successfully integrate the outside with the inside of the apartment making this apartment even more swoon worthy.
Overall, this apartment is a work of art and will be serving a design inspiration for future projects.

Today’s Inspiring Interior was love at first sight for me. Lately, while researching design projects for Stylishly Zen I have struggled to connect with any of the projects that I have looked at. That is until I stumbled across this one while scrolling thru Instagram one day. Templeton Architecture in Australia have created some phenomenal design projects and I am officially in love. This home combines my love of grey, black and white interiors, clean lines and minimalism with unexpected details and accents. Needless to say – this home is positively swoon-worthy!
Located in Australia, Templeton Architecture worked with Lou Prentice Interiors to enhance the original character of an older home while still giving it a modern and contermporary feel. One of the challenges of working with a large space is to create a space that feels intimate yet not stuffy or overwhelming. It is a lot more difficult to achieve then it sounds, yet here the designers make the intimacy of this space feel effortless and calming.
The archways and paneling throughout the house are further highlighted with contrasting paint colours making them both stand out and blend in seamlessly with the rest of the house.
While I love everything about this home, I am completely enamoured with the kitchen. The dark cabinetry, marble and appliances contrast beautifully with the stunning tile floor and gorgeous archway. Love! Love! Love!
Overall this home is a slice of design heaven, and I cannot wait to see what else the very talented team at Templeton Architecture design next.

I love discovering designers and beautiful spaces on Instagram, which is exactly where I discovered the designer of today’s Inspiring Interior. I was especially excited to discover Montana LaBelle’s work because she is Canadian just like me.
Located in Toronto, this Lytton Park residence is elegant and modern perfection. The bright white walls contrast perfectly with the darker touches and details such as the beautiful banister, frames and black grout in the bathroom (which I am particularly obsessed with). Contrasting marble in the kitchen, the light filled living room and floating bed in the bedroom sharply elevate the fabulous factor of this home. Love! Love! Love! Here are some of my favourite pictures of this gorgeous home.
