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.

according to the calendar it is finally spring, and while in reality the cold weather has decided to stick around a little longer (as I write this, it is currently pouring ice rain and snow is expected shortly) I am ready to start shedding a few layers of clothing. Closet staples are a personal thing that depend on your lifestyle and fashion needs but there are a few key items that work in most people’s wardrobe – a white t-shirt and a well fitting pair of jeans are perfect examples of this. Then there is my favourite closet staple – a white dress shirt. This key item has the ability to elevate any look that you may be rocking, be it classic, sexy, conservative or modern to name a few. I prefer my dress shirts to be loose fitting so that I can easily half tuck it into jeans or dress pants. Here are a few of my favourite looks featuring the white dress shirt:

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.
