Designer Feature: Moth Design

I came across the blog written by Erica Cook of Moth Design a few months ago. Erica is an interior designer, stylist and Sarah Richardson Design alumnae and has created a stunning home for herself and her five boys. Today I wanted to share it with you.

I love how she has created a neutral backdrop and changes things up through accessories to create a new look in the space.

Her closet is full of wonderful storage ideas and innovative ways to display all her pretty things. I love how organized it is – everything is accessible and there is no fear of losing things in the pit of a drawer.

She framed shopping bags she has collected – love the colour and the gallery!

Her kitchen is the hub of the house with massive counters, white cabinets straight to the ceiling and marble tile – there is even a nook that she created to hold essentials around the stove.

She has created vingettes of her favourite things around the house and artfully displays sentimental things.

I love her home office.

Being a Mom of three boys I love seeing how others create a space for their men.

And here she is with her boys!

I just love the bright, white, airy home she has created. Thank you Erica for sharing your home with us on your blog!

Designer Feature: Urban Grace Interiors

Today I am sharing snippets of the portfolio of design firm Urban Grace Interiors. Designer Erika Powell and her team have created spaces that are calming to the eye and I love how they mix vintage pieces with new.

Check it out:

I could live in every one of the spaces. Take a minute to check out more of her portfolio or her blog.

Happy Friday!

Designer Feature: Meredith Heron

Today I’d like to share with you some of the fabulous work of Toronto based designer Meredith Heron. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Meredith several times through blogger events and chat with her periodically on Twitter. She is not only insanely talented but an absolute riot.

Her blog, Sashay, recently won the award for “Best New Blog“. It’s a regular read for me and is full of insights into the design process, peeks at projects she is working on and a forum for her rants and raves from everything design related to toilet training her charming and adorable toddler.

Her home was recently featured in April’s issue of Style at Home. I love how she has made a narrow Victorian house feel big and has mixed bold colour and pattern to create a lively yet relaxing space. Check it out:

One of the really cool things about Meredith’s blog is that she shares peeks at projects that she is working on. As a current interior decorating student (coincidentally at the same alma matter as Meredith!) I love seeing some of her sketches that she uses to communicate her design ideas.

Meredith’s office was recently featured in Chloe Magazine and it’s nothing short of fantabulous and inspirational. The wallpaper is a showstopper and everything else flows from there.

And, finally, the lovely Meredith herself!

Meredith doesn’t shy away from bold patterns and bright colours and she mixes everything together in a way that’s livable and not overpowering. Be sure to check out her portfolio and blog.

A definite Canadian designer gem!
