The Mit Chit House

Hi Everyone!

Since the pandemic started and we were forced to stay indoors more often than not, I have become more aware of open spaces, green space and natural light. In Montreal we are now back in lockdown, so naturally today’s featured project has many areas that I am currently missing in my life right now. It also checks off all of the boxes of projects that I am currently loving!

Located in Bangkok Thailand, The Mid Chit house by Looklen Architects features four different courtyards that extend beyond the double height interiors of the home.

The Mid Chit house is a new residence the is connected to an existing family home that is connected by an upped level enclosed bridge. Mid Chit means “close together” and it a beautiful example on the balance between private spaces and more public ones that invite the outdoors inside via courtyards.

Strategically placed skylights and windows allow daylight into the heart of the home, while natural materials and light colours give the home a natural airy feel.

The home is three levels entered around an open living and dining area that encourages interaction and openness within this family home.

The private level on the third floor houses the bedrooms that allow the residents privacy within their own personal space.

Light, airy and open while still allowing it’s residents privacy, Looklen Architects has done a wonderful job renovating a preexisting home to suit modern day. What are your thoughts on this stunning home? Let me know in the comments below.

Emerald Envy

Hi Everyone!

I hope that your 2022 is off to a great start! Today’s featured project first captured my attention by showcasing one of my favourite colours throughout the home. Located in Moscow, this apartment is intelligently designed by Natalia Vologdina-Anikina to suit the lifestyle needs of both adults and children. As requested by her clients, Ms. Vologdina-Anikina used an emerald jewel tone colour throughout the home, helping to elevate the apartments luxe factor. From the dining room chairs to cladding in the master bedroom and a geometric art feature in the living room, the colour was seamlessly integrated throughout the home.

With large windows that flood the apartment with natural light, this apartment is both sophisticated yet welcoming. While the kitchen is small, it is designed to encourage socializing when in use which is perfect for both entertaining and family bonding.

The children’s bedrooms are both playful and chic, and the design will work even as the kids grow into teenagers and beyond. I especially love the suede grey panelling and wire star pendents in the room below.

And of course the bathrooms are just as gorgeous as the rest of the home. The textured ceramic tile in the guest bathroom adds a artful and dramatic touch to the space. Love it!

Last but not least (and what initially captured my attention about this project), I love the master bedroom. The captivating mix of emerald green paired with a customized bed with a taupe suede headboard and sleek white pendent lights is memorable and elegant. Love it!

Inspiring Interior – St. Germain by Montana Labelle Design

Hi Everyone!

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know about my love for all things marble. I love seeing how designers use marble with a space to create some very dreamy interiors. One designer whose beautiful use of marble gets me every time is Toronto based designer Montana Labelle.

Today’s Inspiring Interior is one of my favourite projects by Montana Labelle Design. The St. Germain project is a sleek and modern residential project. True to Montana’s design style, it is made up of a neutral colour palette with a heavy use of black and white. Various marble stone is used as statement pieces throughout the home elevating it to a modern, chic and inviting space.

The marble used in the kitchen on the range, backsplash and hood (how gorgeous is the hood!?!?), is also carried thru to the living space where the same marble is used on the fireplace. White cabinetry paired with a sleek black kitchen island perfectly complement and showcase the beautiful stone.

The plush grey velvet dining chairs paired with a statement marble top dining chairs set the tone for the luxe dining room. The dining room is further elevated with a vintage chandelier and oversized mirror. The beautiful chevron oak floor provides the perfect chic base for this space.

A bold black and white marble is used in one of the bathrooms.  Pairing it with matte black hardware and an abstract shaped mirror keeps the marble from looking too heavy and overbearing.  Sleek white tiles and black hardware in the shower nearby ensure that focus is not pulled from the eye catching marble sink but complemented by its surroundings.

I love this home for it’s chic, modern, and minimalist style, neutral colour palette and fearless use of marble throughout the space. Vintage pieces such as the leather club chairs in the living room help to create a welcoming vibe throughout the home

Commercial Interiors Crush – STK Toronto

Hi Everyone!

It feels like the longest January ever and combined with the lockdown that we are currently in here in Montreal things seem a little bleak. One thing that I am doing to keep my spirits up is to research and plan all of the places that I would love to visit once things start to open back up. One mini getaway that I would like to take is to Toronto for some good food and great design.

Heavenly Home – Ornamental Modern by Dylan Farrell Design

Hi Everyone!

I love a good house tour and today’s project is one home that I am completely in love with. Located in Melbourne and designed by the extremely talented firm Dylan Farrell Design, this home is exquisite. With it’s modern Italianate exterior, and grand interior proportions, it would be easy to for many design decisions to underwhelm, but by adding layers of warmth such as gorgeous timber chevron floors and a black and white repetition throughout the home the design elevates the overall mood of the home. Steel and glass doors framed by floor to ceiling wire brushed oak, help to create a sense of separation and flow throughout the home. The result is an urban edginess combined with a rustic farmhouse vibe, love it!

Given all of the incredible features throughout the home it’s hard to pick a favourite, but the warm warm tones of the dining room next to a well stocked wine cellar create a welcoming and intimate vibe that I love. I am also completely smitten with the aged mirror panels on the steel framed closet doors.

The warm tones of the interior are carried throughout the exterior spaces of the home. With a sprawling leafy garden, gorgeous lap pool and outdoor fireplace area this home is the perfect place to entertain indoors and out.
