Design: Mix and Match Prints

I’m oddly drawn to this outfit even though I normally usually always avoid pattern mixing myself in both wardrobe and home design.

What do you think? Do you mix patterns regularly? How about colours and patterns?

Design: White and Wood

The combination of white and light wood is inspiring at this time of year. The duo evokes charm, ease, and adventure. This is a perfect pairing for all rooms in the house as you’ll note from the inspirational room designs featured here.

Design: McKinley Burkart Architecture

I don’t know how Instagram algorithms work, but sometimes the fancy behind-the-scenes technology really works in my favour. Recently, Instagram introduced me to the work of McKinley Burkart. This architecture and interior design firm, which has studios in Calgary and Vancouver, has an extensive portfolio of beautiful restaurants, retail, residential, and work spaces.

Design: Black and White Floral Wallpaper

While I don’t like wallpaper in my own home, I definitely appreciate how others use it in their homes. Fellow designers/bloggers Tim Lam and Christine Dovey work wonders with wallpaper (have you seen their recent One Room Challenge reveals: Tim’s dining room, Christine’s basement), but I’m happy to sit on the wallpaper sidelines.

That said, I do love flowers, and these floral wallpapers have certainly caught my eye. I could easily frame up samples and add them to my office gallery wall or switch out my inkblot wall for a wall full of florals! Now, there’s an idea!
