A rare glimpse into exemplary craftsmanship – Hermès At Work

“Behind every finishing touch, there is a starting point.  Behind every technical accomplishment, there is a long  apprenticeship and ceaseless endeavour.  Behind every finely tuned gesture, there is the right tool, a history and a name.  Behind the smallest detail, there is a human being, guided by a watchful eye and pride in work well done.”

– Hermès

Masculine Sensibility – Yaletown Loft

 

 

In this project, we once again we had the opportunity to explore the relationship between the single male and interior design. There continues a movement in design today that reflects a more masculine sensibility. With this project we further explored the world of restrained furniture details and sombre colours. The goal was to create a masculine home with great style without appearing in poor taste. The clean lines, beautiful woods and varied textures found throughout the space helped in achieving the look. You don’t have to be a man to love this style.

Monet’s Kitchen

Summer makes me think of Claude Monet and his home in Giverny, where he lived for 43 years.  The French painter, one of the founders of the Impressionist movement, had one of the most beautiful properties in Normandy.

I can only imagine walking through his house and garden and dream of what the atmosphere of the kitchen with its walls covered in blue Rouen tiles must have been like.  The coolness of the blue contrasting with the soft glow of the copper pots and utensils is inspiring.  I envision fresh flowers strewn about, with vegetables from the garden being prepared for family and friends.

We may never have the house, however, we are now able to have the kitchen tiles thanks to Pavé Tile, Wood & Stone, Inc.  This American company has recreated Monet’s tiles, ensuring that any combination of the hand painted blue and white works of art will add French elegance to any style of kitchen.

In the Words of Claude Monet

“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.”

– Claude Monet
