Grace: Every designer has a dream material, and mine is red brick pavers for an interior space. I love how much warmth, texture, and interest they add - and they just get better with age. (Im)patiently waiting for the perfect project to use these bad boys...

Marilyne: My favourite thing about Instagram is discovering creative people around the globe. Bobby Clark is an artist located in Melbourne, AU and she creates these inspiring prints, minimal yet bold!

Design: Nicole Holiss

Sacha: I'm really digging steel and glass shelves in kitchens lately and this particular shot stopped me in my tracks!

Dom: I like the combination of warm and cold tones, the mix of textures, the layered rugs, and the coffee table! If you scroll through Anita's feed you'll see many iterations of her living room as she is regularly refreshing its look.
Design: Peter Ivens
Eve: I love the minimalist look to this kitchen. They used the same marble for the countertop, backsplash and open shelf which allows that show stoping integrated cutting board to shine. The skylights are also a nice touch.
Natalie: I'm in love with everything about this kitchen! The dark lower cabinets make a bold presence but with the white marble counter tops, back splash and white shelving, it's not too over powering. The brass handles and fixtures also complete the look!
Design: Unknown (please comment if you know it!)
Melissa: The tile work in this bathroom is the obvious showstopper but what actually caught my eye was the "mini" cathedral ceiling! Long ignored or forgotten, I feel like ceiling details are becoming so important in design.

Monday Inspiration 02.19.18

We're all kept pretty busy around here with client meetings and site checks and project installs etc., but we try to have a housekeeping meeting with our team every Monday to check in with about what's on the go. To keep the meetings fun, we recently started asking our staff to come prepared with an image to share, and we spend a couple minutes discussing them and getting inspired for the week. As a new weekly feature, we'll be sharing our team's selections and giving you a glimpse at what's clogging up our screenshots folder. So much amazingness!

Sacha: I'm inspired by this bold and simple art and you can never go wrong with leather and marble!

Eve: I like unique touches incorporated in the design, like the subway tile on the back of the glass cabinets, the exposed plumbing on the copper faucet and the sunken herb garden in the centre of the kitchen island - which sits on casters, so super practical!
This is also a great example of how you can mix materials while keeping a cohesive design. They used flat panel lower cabinets made of wood, painted glass upper cabinets, marble countertop and backsplash, subway tile and even a bead-board wall.

Design: Lustre Home
Dominique: This before and after house exterior! The more you look, the more details you’ll notice were improved on. I especially love this because there are a lot of houses in my Ottawa neighbourhood, North Vanier, that look like the before picture. This gives me hope that they can be pretty again.
Grace: I'm inspired by how a bunch of different materials were mixed here but the space still feels totally cohesive and peaceful. Just goes to show that the 'three finish rule' is kinda bogus if you pay attention to detail and stay away from competing strong patterns. Standout feature: the tiled 'mantle' in the brick fireplace - so obsessed.

Marilyne: Nothing better than white walls as a backdrop for bold colours, textures and a bit of your personal story!
Design: Design Works
Melissa: This marble backsplash is just so stunning and that hit of wood on the range is the perfect detail! Yes please!
Natalie: This burnt orange colour is all the rage right and I'm totally into it! Our Candace Chandelier looks especially stunning in this space as well!
