Spotlight on McGill Design Group
Hello heyyy! I love you all for reading, have I mentioned that? If I knew you in real life I would hug you lots and call you shmoo. Or at the very least apply the sh as a prefix to your given name. I do that too.
Moving on to McGill Design Group. Let me be the first to tell you–these Canadians got class. I mean class like the Chanel bag that never goes out of style. Class like that really exceptionally behaved older child. Class like class. McGill’s aesthetic is also decidedly spare, a streamlined, clean look that conjures the adjective “modern” in my mind. For me these interiors don’t scream “live in me!” so much as they do “admire me in a magazine!” But sometimes that’s the point, k?
Still life with breakfast nook, I call this. This is perhaps the most livable of the bunch, what with the picture board banquette, china tea set, cake and all. Do note the built-in drawers down yonder- those are winners.
Next up, a second take on the dining section. The darker tones here create a sort of glamorous moodiness that I’m fully on board with.
But wait, here’s that proper banquette. Two pillows would have been too many.
I heartily approve of this use of the pull-outs.
Our tour continues on into the kitchen, or heaven, as the case may be. I’ll admit the vanilla cake and three tiered macaron stand are doing their work on me. But regardless: hello?
Next up, a perfectly refined sitting room. Rooted in the neutrals, but with a good helping of some contrasting brights, this is totally the living room of your most elegant aunt.
Or is it this? No, no, this room belongs to your classiest lady friend. Check out those well appointed details, eh?
The features of this room should just belong to you and to me and to us all: darling settee and ottoman, window adjacent, not more than three steps from the fireplace and television set, and all in the comfort of your (our) very own bedroom.
Because everyone should be so blessed as to have a fuchsia bench to greet them upon entry:
And a circular 4-paned peek-hole window to admire the view from inside the shower.
If you’re curious what I’ll be doing this weekend, it’s that.
In closing, it’s come to my attention that some loud-mouthed female is going around telling all the bitties that using a face wipe to remove makeup is an acceptable alternative to an actual face washing at bedtime. Let the records show this information is false. Get up and wash your face, for shame.
