    Modern Glamour in Black and White

    {Alek from From the Right Bank has issued the "What's Your Style in One Picture challenge" - this whole space pretty much sums it up for me. If I were to pick one - perhaps the living room in number 1 and 2 or the last photo of the bedroom.}

    I almost gasped in delight when I saw the cover of this month's Canadian House and Home. I was immediately captivated by the cover could not wait to see the rest of the home. I could happily move right into Jennifer Ferreira's beautiful Toronto home. This is precisely how I would see my own personal style - a classic, clean white and neutral palette with strong black accents. As an interior designer who has worked as a set designer for Martha Stewart Weddings and as a buyer for Tom Ford, her classic, glamorous style is evidenced through each detail of this space.

    A beautiful mix of romantic French and mid-century modern furniture. Lots of natural light. Books, art and personal touches throughout the space - but not cluttering it.

    Glamorous luxe details - the ornate gold mirror, the gilded inside of the pendant lamp.
    The Hermes blanket! I love how playfully the bicycle is positioned in the corner.

    The bold, graphic zebra print continues the simple black and white theme in the home study Jennifer created for herself. Someday I'd love to have a library with a ladder.

    I smiled with delight when I saw this photo - I just bought the very same desk for my own little home office area. I also have a bulletin board above mine. While I do love this West Elm chair, my own desk chair is a glossy white Eiffel Eames. (See, told you I could move right in!)

    The simple black trim adds a sophisticated touch to the white curtains.
    I love the light flooding into this elegant yet understated space.

    This bedroom is just dreamy - grey cowhide rug on the floor. Classic French furniture in white with rich pewter upholstery. Very luxurious yet comfortable. In my eyes, pretty much perfect.



    the couch in the first pic is gorgeous! love the hanging lamp too! xo


    such clean lines and rich texture. very nice.


    Those were some of my favourite things too!
    I love anything Black & White


    I knew whatever you chose for the challenge could easily be my "one picture" too and sure enough, it could! :) How positively perfect is this house? I could easily move into this house and live very happily. Thanks for taking the challenge! Have a great weekend. xo
