In keeping with the coastal theme this week (click here if you missed my Nautical Nursery post), I’ve got a house tour that personifies small, but mighty. Despite the meager foot print this weeks Inspired Interiors selection is cozy, curated and gorgeous. Designer Raquel Garcia combines a thoughtful selection of colour and texture with clean shiplap and enviable natural light to create a space that feels much larger than it is. A beautiful mix of modern elements, traditional pieces and luxe finishes creates a home that is beautiful and inviting. Enjoy!
While I’m hesitant to declare any space my favourite to design, there is something particularly special about working on a nursery. Getting to play a small part in preparation for baby – setting the stage, so to speak – is such a joy and a real honour. Nurseries also allow for a little more creativity, which is never a bad thing.
When Jami reached out for help with her second baby’s nursery, she had two wishes: incorporating Joanna Gaines’ shiplap wallpaper and nothing too cutesy – I knew we’d get along smashingly! While it’s easy to get carried away with themes when decorating nurseries and children’s room, creating a space with an understated theme that will grow and transition with the child is my goal. I knew immediately what I wanted to do: a Nautical Nursery.
This year I made the conscious decision to work through summer, I have a number of exciting projects slated and wanted to give myself permission to put everything else (think: travel, lazy afternoons spent on patios through out the city, and getting out to the mountains) on hold. I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been challenging, but the fruits of my labour so to speak have been worth it and I have some amazing content and project reveals coming soon.
But until then, if like me you’re working through the summer, let’s live vicariously through this weeks Inspired Interiors feature, a stunning lake house on Ontario’s Lake Rosseau. Tunneling hallways covered in beadboard, a boathouse that is literally on the water and a colour palette that if you read last week’s Colour Crush post, you’ll know I love.
