[Above: The bedroom is all about quiet for me so I like to keep it white and simple. Pillows add splashed of colour and I can change them depending on my mood.]
My living room is usually used as a design space and so we keep it pretty sparse so that things can move in a out. Today we had two ginormous poufs in there which will be a brand new collaboration with furniture designers/manufacturers and fellow Montrealers, Periphere, a brother and sister design team. The poufs will launch this month in New York at ICFF- We hope to see Grace there!!!I LOVE to cook and so the kitchen is a wonderful place for me to be. I painted the wall a charcoal grey called Bleeker Street by Ralph Lauren and chosen because of my love for the Big Apple! I used Ikea shelving because it seemed the most versatile I could find and I thought that it could work well in any space be it a kitchen or a bathroom. Most of the things in my kitchen are collected. The invisible shelf for my cookbooks is from Umbra.
