The walnut slab door feels right at home in this gorgeous art-filled loft

Wanting to replace a old sliding door for the front closet, our client asked for our opinion. After seeing the space, nothing speaks louder than a solid walnut slab door with horizontal planks on the stainless steel barn door hardware. At the end of the loft is a built-in bookshelf that was also made of walnut, so we thought we would have a dialogue going with the walnut pieces. As it turns out,the newly renovated kitchen area also has walnut cabinetry.

Oh, and did I mention the art? Both Rock and I were so overwhelmed by the art in this loft that was hard to focus on the question at hand -- the barn door. It's like going to a gallery, except this was in someone's home, and so the curated collection was much more interesting . No wonder this loft was featured in Designlines magazine.

There it is. I can't say anything more. It's just simply stunning, and those black shoes on the it art? or is it function? See what I mean about it being much more interesting a gallery?

The walnut flows  nicely with the orange front door. The loft is being re-design by Eduardo and his team at I like the orange so much I called Eduardo to ask for the code. We ended up painting the door we displayed at the Interior Design Show this orange.

This picture doesn't do justice, but your senses and brain get a stimulation rush in this place.

Rock always has to make his way into my picture somehow. I love that black piece that looks like a double tobacco pipe.  And of course the door. The horizontal planks leads the eye into the loft where all the excitement awaits...



Lionfish Developments is the New Hip Spot on Dupont and Ossington!

I was in love with the space when Rock brought home the pictures to show me after his installation at Lionfish Developments's new office at Dupont and Ossington.  I no longer go on installations with him due to the arrival of baby number 2.  I wait at home to see the finished installs in images. Isn't this such a cool space?  Notice that walnut slab door. It's on stainless steel hardware.

I have to give it to Valery, principal designer of the firm on the way she chooses lighting.  There is something unconventional and  bold about her choices.

That pendant is quirky, and charming and just goes perfect with that sliding walnut door!
