Designer: Studio Mcgee 
Melissa: Obsessing over exteriors at the moment as we make changes to ours. I can’t get enough of the black and white look (outside or in). Next up on our house is the roof! It’s in desperate need of a makeover for cosmetic reasons but also it’s in such bad shape it’s going to start leaking soon. Yikes! We are definitely going with a dark charcoal for the shingles and are thinking of doing something like this with the metal only over the garage.


Designer: Life Made Modern 

Sacha: We’ve been planning our kitchen renovation recently (Just for fun right now as we’re still saving up) and I came across this design which inspired me to consider a corner storage “garage”.  The window positioning here is also very similar to our home and it gives me hope we can move the sink to the island without it been awkward.

Design: Banner Day

Grace: Honestly, every house should have a TV-less sunroom. This one has painted white ceiling beams, brick floors, cozy his & hers chaises, California shutters, and a SWING. So it’s basically perfect. Wondering if I can find this place on Airbnb…

Natalie: People are often scared to paint their bedroom a dark colour but I think this photo is proof that the results can be fantastic! Large open windows, light furniture and bedding really balance the dark walls!

Eve: This amazing forest home reflects a minimal Japanese style that really speaks to me for its serene aesthetic where the finishes and architecture do all the talking. The brick floors laid in a modern stacked pattern and floor to ceiling windows that showcase the views of the surrounding trees make this style inspiration one I can’t get enough of!

Marilyne: So many beautiful details in this picture. I never thought of using the space in front of a window as a spot for the vanity, great use of space!
