Feeling ‘With It’ {Pantone’s Top Color for Spring 2013}

So if you are up on news in the design world you may have heard awhile back that Pantone has announced its Colors for Spring 2013…. And it’s top pick? Blue, baby. MONACO BLUE to be exact. Can I tell you how happy I am to see my favorite shade of blue selected? Particularly fun [...]

Style at Home magazine feature

It’s a beautiful long weekend here in BC, and I’m stealing a few moments from the landscaping project underway outside to sneak into my office and write a quick post! I’m so excited and thankful to share that one of Kerrisdale Design’s projects has been featured in the September issue of Style at Home magazine! It is [...]

Of babies, adoptions, and the colour PLUM

A week and a half ago I braved the snow and freezing rain that was pelting Greater Vancouver and headed off to North Vancouver to do a nursery install for some old clients/friends who are expecting their first child! The baby girl {who will be arriving in the next few weeks} got a lovely room in [...]

The Blue Bedroom – Questions Answered!

Well, first of all THANK YOU for some many sweet comments on the “Before and After” post for our Blue Bedroom. The room turned out simple, fresh, and pretty and we’re so glad you liked it too! I’ve gotten a few emails with questions about the room, so I wanted to do a quick post [...]

Pink or Blue?

I know, what you’re thinking! Nope, we’re not talking about babies folks {and no, I don’t have any annoucements to make!} I’m refering to the recent Master bedroom design I did for a client. My very sweet client contacted me this past fall asking for help with her Master bedroom. Her and her husband are like a [...]

{Sneak Peak} Modern European Home Part 2

Next up on the tour {go here to read part 1} is the Family room at my clients new house. Being avid entertainers, they decided to forgo doing a formal living room, and instead have a wonderful “Great Room’ – large kitchen, family room, and eating area. Perfect for parties, as we all know everyone [...]

{Sneak Peak} Modern European Home Part 1

One of my favorite things about reading blogs is seeing what other designers are up to….it’s so much fun to get a peek at their design inspiration and schemes and see what they’ve come up with for their clients. I’ve got a backlog of design scheme boards I’ve done over the past few months for [...]

Tiny Tweaks

Sometimes its amazing what a tiny tweak to a design can do, isn’t it?   A month ago some former clients {oldies but goodies!} that I’d worked with last Spring emailed for a bit of help. They had bought a beautiful piece of land in North Vancouver and were working with a builder to create their [...]

‘Good Bones’ – An Update

Back in the Fall I posted some pictures of the work I was doing at a friends – a fireplace reno and millwork, along with “Design To Go” services. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, you can read the original post HERE. The panelling and fireplace place have been complete for a little while [...]

{Sneak Peek} Living Room

Hi everyone, After a fun-filled and jam-packed 4 days in Los Angeles I’m back to the grind …..kids, work, and the usual fall time sickness has hit full force! Los Angeles was a great time though of visiting suppliers, shopping, Disneyland, movies, eating out {yummy food and such a treat not to have to cook or [...]

Basement Bliss

I think everyone who loves to entertain dreams of a fantasy space in which to do so. If you are a fun, laid-back family like my clients the “Smith’s”, the ideal space is one in which kids and adults can hang out together, with lots of room for everyone to spread out – bar area, tv/entertainment space, place [...]

Creating Good Bones

First Things First I’m a big believer in adding architectural detail to rooms. Great millwork painted a fresh coat of white can work miracles! With clients I’m always looking to address the bones of the house first….creating beautiful, classic bones in a house means the rest {furnishings, decor}  is easy {ok, easier }. When there is balance and proper [...]
