{house tour: jessica claire}

Ok, you all know I LOVE a good house tour! What's even better? A peek into the home of a fantastically talented fellow Canadian blogger. YUM! This home belongs to decorator Jessica Waks who writes the fabulous blog, The World According to Jessica Claire. It's featured in this month's Style at Home magazine, and {update from Jessica}, check out the video walk-through tour set to appear on CityLine!

And ... the most amazing part ... this is a rental apartment! Can you imagine? The before & afters Jessica shared on Style at Home's blog will blow your mind ...



I just love that Jessica has mixed high end pieces with Craigslist finds. Believe it or not, that settee is a re-upholstered Craigslist purchase!




I could spot that piece of art above the settee from a mile away, it's by one of my current favorite artists, Joshua Jensen Nagle. I fell in love with his work the moment I first set eyes on one of his pieces on CityLine and blogged about it here.







A few before & afters:




Just gorgeous! I would move in today if I could :)

Hello, Nancy I'm your newest follower, I´m also a portuguese designer and blogger, besides gray, I'm also in love with peonies, so nedless to say this house got me in the first shot! Love the ikat benches and adore the bedroom, is there anything more beautiful than a crispy white room, with amazing pattern and a touche a colour, here is the proof. P.S. love the blog.

I have seen the dining room before and loved it. I had no idea the rest of the apartment could be so beautiful! So glad you posted this!

Stunning. I noticed that white nightstand/side table and I wonder if I am brave enough to do a little DIY project to re-create it. I am inspired.

I saw the video clip today on City Line. Lover Jessica's place. Since I am huge fan of the black and white scheme, I love this place. It is a bonus that it is a rental! She proves you don't need a million dollars just an eye for design!

Ok. This might be my very favorite House Tour post. I am OBSESSED with this lady's home! I want to move in. I adore that petite bench with the lucite legs. And her bedroom! WOW. Love.

Does anyone know who the photographer is of that cool photo above her bed?

WOW i'm in love! saving to my inspriation file!

Oh wow what a gorgeous home!! Makes me feel so stupid for not even wanting to paint the walls in my rental, when she even re-tiled her bathroom! I love all the golden touches in her home, and the way she uses contrast. So lovely! And those beach photos.. After you first pointed them out, I keep seeing them everywhere! (same thing with the floor art). I feel like I'm bouncing a ball off a creative wall whenever I visit your site =D

Barbara@HausDesign said...
