Our Miniature Poodle Walter, snuggling in a Norwegian throw. I would come home to find the blanket all messed up then one day I found out why and it was cute.

I took this photo yesterday of Lucky with my new iPhone 8X (love that portrait setting!) while he was prepping for a snooze on our sectional in the media room. 

At the office on a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 11 Feb 2018 by KiM

Once again I am completely envious of this work environment that could not be more opposite of the one I have been living with for the past 16 years. The folks working for GitHub in SoMa, San Francisco, have it made 10 times over thanks to the designers at .

At the core of GitHub technology is social collaboration, which was made physically evident in their 55,000 square foot headquarters. The three story office space includes a variety of work environments to accommodate different work styles and flexibility including multiple cafes, a commercial kitchen, full bar, indoor park, dojo and coder caves. As a company founded in local cafes and bars around the city of San Francisco, it was important to infuse these types of environments throughout the space as a nod to the company’s roots.

The beautiful brick and timber space was once the site of a dried fruit packing warehouse in the early 1900’s. Along with GitHub’s own “ship it” mentality, the design honors the rich roots of the space through the use of vintage shipping containers, deconstructed and rebuilt on site as a reference to the train that rolled right through the ground floor.

The eclectic chic style of Allison Crawford

Eclectic chic with bold colour accents, a crazy pattern here and there and an obvious love for mid-century modern. This is what Austin, Texas based interior designer is all about and these are some of my favourite spaces of hers. 

Sprucing up a Nashville renovation

Hannah Crowell of  did a fabulous job with this renovated Nashville home. Some dark wall drama in the dining room, a bright white kitchen and some gorgeous  wallpaper in the bedroom made this a had-to-share project.

A ranch-inspired home in the Ukraine

Posted on Wed, 7 Feb 2018 by KiM

Husband and wife team Sergiy and Anna, from Kiev, Ukraine, are long-time readers of our blog and started their own blog called  about 7 years ago. They recently completed their first interior design , an absolutely stunning ranch-style house in Kiev with inspiration from American brand Restoration Hardware. The earth tones and black accents are really on point and beautiful with the wood details in the home. Outstanding job Sergiy and Anna!
