can i live here?

There is something about this home that has a Kelly Wearstler flair. Maybe it's the wow factor that excites you and makes you want to keep looking at pictures of the home to see what other surprises lay ahead. Each room is like an outfit or story entirely on it's own. Creating spaces like this really takes time and patience so best thing is to make a list. Ask yourself what story you would like to tell and where you would like to begin. 

Painting out all moulding, doors and window frames are a super hot trend for 2014. I did this in my bedroom and dining room and it makes the room appear much larger than it actually is. 

That ceiling . . . 

Do I spy a hand chair by artist Pedro Friedeberg? Indeed I do! And what about those painted floors - if I was able to do this in my home, I completely would. There is much talk around the family of painting the floors at my cottage. I'm nudging towards painting a pattern on them but the majority are favouring the all over one colour. Stay tuned to see what the summer painting jobs are!

Wallpaper on the ceiling? This design trick really makes this white room be bold.

The homeowners hand picked each album, the requirements were it had to be all good tracks front to back. It had to be released when they were in high school. If I ever did this to my home then I guess I would have Blur, Coldplay, Collective Soul, Dave Matthews Band, Britney (I'm pretty obsessed), Dixie Chicks, Michael Jackson, The Fray, Gavin DeGraw, Goo Goo Dolls, Jack Johnson, John Mayer (side note ... really hope he marries Katy Perry), Jurassic 5, The Killers and Kings of Leon to name a few. 

Who would be on your ceiling? I think I need to dig out a few CD's to really remember who I listened to in high school. Do those 'Now' and 'Big Shiny Tunes' albums count?

You can buy one of these awesome hanging globe chairs here.
