Vie's Favorite Interior

Today for Favorite Interior Tuesday we have Vie from Verdigris Vie, and I am honoured she is here!  A lot of you fellow Canadian Bloggers know Vie as the delightful host of the Canadian Design Bloggers Meet Up and those of you who weren't there are sure to know her blog.  Either way, Vie's style is impeccable, so let's get to the space she chose for today...

 When I first stumbled across the portfolio of Bates Corkern, I knew I would be making frequent visits to their site for inspiration.   They create interiors that feel like they have historical relevance.   One of the most important aspects of a home for me is that delicate balance of old and new.  It has to be present in the architecture, floor plan, and furnishings.
 
 A modern and functional kitchen is a must. The counter height table is perfect for snacks and homework, or coffee with friends.    I love how the more traditional fixtures tie in to this romantic and French inspired Dining Room.  I don’t think there is a home on my list of favorites that doesn’t have traditional elements of French Design. Louis chairs, gold gilded mirrors or even the romantic doors that open to the outdoors add old world charm.


 One of the most impressive characteristics of this home is all the architectural elements that have been seamlessly incorporated.  Exposed brick walls that are painted to look like they were original, rustic wood beams overhead, large round windows, arched hallways, even a contemporary floating staircase are harmonious and create a very unique identity.  It’s a signature that you know can only come together when there is a magical chemistry between the designer and client. 


What do you think of this massive piece of artwork resting in front of the tub?  I think it’s brilliant, if you don’t have a view, you can always bring one in.

And there you have it, my current favorite.  Thanks Staci, for inviting me to be part of this series.  It’s a pleasure!

Stunning.  Period.  I think the bathroom shot is the one I love the most, although it is very hard to choose.  Thanks so much again to Vie for participating today, and thanks to all of you reading - be sure to stop by Verdigris Vie for more fantastic posts from Vie!

  1. Love the character that a painted brick wall gives and LOVE that big piece of art in front of the tub. It makes the bathroom not feel so sterile and cold and makes it feel like a real "room" and gives it such warmth and personality. Beautiful!!
