Inspiring Interior

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.

20071d45-0100-46b5-b872-763a0825af26Today’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.

Inspiring Interior

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.

Hi Everyone!

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.

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a small space with a lot of style.  Located in Kiev, this compact (484 square feet) apartment was tastefully designed by MARTIN Architects.  The owners intended to use this apartment as a rental so it needed to have universal appeal to attract potential renters.

Despite not being a very large space, the abundance of natural light and open layout makes this apartment feel much larger then it actually is.  The bedroom is partitioned off from the rest of the apartment by a glass wall allowing natural light from the bedroom window to brighten up the entire apartment.

The colour palette is kept neutral with greys, blacks and brown but a aqua green accent colour has been incorporated throughout the apartment upping the style factor on this gorgeous space.

My favourite part of this apartment though is the kitchen.  The exposed brick wall was painted black to contrast with the light floors – it’s positively swoon worthy!
