  1. This is a modern home, that has a lovely flow, and is warm and inviting. I don't know why people hate the nook. When you don't have any upper cupboards in a kitchen due to numerous windows (who doesn't want natural light), you do need more storage. The nook offers extra seating, and storage both in the kitchen and the living room (win win), and is unusual and quirky like the owner. As for the butt photo, it's kind of sexy which is why it may have been placed over the bed. I would have personally placed it near my elliptical/workout area as an incentive. I loved the entire house. Yes, I would loved to have seen a before and after also but a great project. One of my favourites.

  2. It is simply beautiful! I would prefer a huge kitchen with an island and a huge table, rather than a separate dining room. They are rarely ever used and it's just a room setting there alone. ❤

  3. Love everything especially the art piece ❤️… not the butt lol, though I can appreciate but the dining room table… It's super exquisite. I would like some information on it please.

  4. Hello Shirley nothing speaks of contemporary and warmth more than the dining room with its glass base n brass vases! That's an unusual combination along with the wall lights.The paint in the bedroom is an inspiring design in itself.Kudos.Thanks Alison for showcasing your home.Wish you both a Merry Christmas.

  5. You two are cute together and I love these spaces. We are building onto an art deco home and whilst I am looking forward to straight walls, draft free, and having sunlight in my rooms – it kind of scares me a little. 'Quirkiness' might be just what I need, and some of décor items already meet that criteria. Thanks ladies xox

  6. I'm a huge fan of honeycomb tile first off…In addition, it is rare that I find so many other similar taste in one house…The unobstructed vies…and drama of the dark paint in the bedroom which I've done in my living room in the past…and the artwork – omg…I especially love the piece on the wall in the entrance….very lively space.
