Have have many dear readers of the blog who have followed us for years and years. Shirley is one of them. I featured her B&B ( in L’Orignal, about an hour drive east of Ottawa) back in 2012. Alot has happened since then as I learned in an email from Shirley the other day and it was so moving I had to share.

Lots has happened in the past years , I almost died last year because of a vicious immune system disease , and I was kind of told if the chemotherapy does not work for me , I might have 3 to 12 months left. Did not take that and went to do my own research and found out to fast again, meaning water fasting for days at the time, to give my body the chance to heal itself through Autophagy. To make a long story short , I did it instead of dying or staying ill on heavy meds for the rest of my life I am off all meds and healthier then ever before.

My story is here just in case you know somebody who wants to help themselves: , 

But why I am telling you all of this is , I had an art exhibition coming last year when I was at my worst, but the pieces I created were some of the best work I have done in my 45 year career as an artist. All black and grey. Now I needed the perfect back ground to display them in a way that satisfies my message. So I decided to flip our B&B living room from all white with chrome accents to all black with copper and gold accents.
Her artwork is breathtaking and really quite moving, and the redecorated space works so well to show it off. Congrats on beating this horrible disease Shirley, for creating such wonderful pieces of art, and for sharing with us.

A renovated apartment in Copenhagen

Posted on Sun, 2 Sep 2018 by KiM

I’m loving the energy in this eclectic 1898 home in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen belonging to and Anders de Lichtenberg that I spotted on . As the story goes, it was completely renovated (kitchen became a bathroom, living room became a kitchen…) and is now a contemporary space filled with statement pieces of furniture, such as a Arne Jacobsen Series 7 dining chairs, a Vertigo pendant by Constance Guisset, Poul Kjaerholm PK22 chairs, a Romeo Rega table, a Hans Wegner Flag Halyard chair, a FOS diamond table etc. Also, this may be my favourite pink kitchen.

A modern home in the Spanish countryside

Posted on Fri, 31 Aug 2018 by KiM

A touch of modern industrial in the rural Spanish town of Fonolleres is what I am sharing today. Because that combo sounds ideal and after devouring these photos it looks ideal too. Concrete floors, white washed pine (?), black steel beams and windows, some really gorgeous subway tiles and a pool has rendered me smitten. Interior design: Architect: Borrell Lisaver

A loft in a converted warehouse

Posted on Wed, 29 Aug 2018 by KiM

Didier Ryan of British architecture firm  worked some magic on this warehouse conversion to create an absolutely fabulous loft. What was once a furniture depot for the renowned department store Harrods is now modern, unfussy and spacious. Featuring windows I would do just about anything for.
