In an interview earlier this week, I was asked about some of homes I've photographed, and what were some of my faves. I have to say it's the ones that are a mid-century modern style, mixed with anything and everything. I personally have some mid-century pieces mixed with new and some flea market junk tossed in for good measure (I say 'junk' in a very loving way).
The following homes all had a nice mix of style, that perfectly suited the homeowners. I'm a little less "minimal" than these though ;) (that would be less "tidy").
This home was reno'd by Andrea Mclean for her very modern parents.
Ahh, Bertoia chairs. Love them.
I've been trying to find side tables like this here in Vancouver. Not an easy task. Cushion is from Ouno Design.
An impossibly tidy home office. I want the Saarinen "womb" chair. Dream.
I loved the deck off the kitchen. The happy yellow chairs are vintage 70's Solair chair, designed and made in Canada. I have a couple of green ones, but I would love the yellow. They were known as "motel" chairs, and never taken too seriously, until recently. They've been relaunched, but I still prefer the old ones with a touch of rust ;)
This next home is a beautiful reno of a 75 year old home. The designer (also the homeowner) is Catherine Radcliffe of Riesco & Lapres.
Catherine's office is on the left, and the upstairs hallway office is generally used by her two sons. Great use of extra space.
Catherine in her comfy Eames chair. Love the orange Eames bucket chair mixed with her country style dining table.
One of Catherine's sons rooms. So cute.
Her youngest son's bedroom. I love his secret closet where he can just play his guitar. My husband needs a secret closet.
On a final note for Friday, I did a little DIY project for Poppytalk...it was posted yesterday. Oops. Check it out if you can. Maybe a fun project to do with kids on this long labour day weekend (if you're in North America).
