Photo Gallery: The Moggit Girls’ Favourite Spaces
The bloggers share unique white interiors.
“My eye is drawn to shape and texture and scale,” says Janet. “I just want to look at the pendant light’s scallops, the arches of the chairs and the table legs’ detail.”
“For me, too much vintage can make a room boring, while too much modern can leave a space feeling cold,” says Joy. “With the right mix however, you get perfection!” As for the zebra rug, there’s a bit of debate between the Moggit Girls over that: “You either love ’em or you hate ’em. Janet hates them! I think when used correctly, they can add great punch to a room.”
"This is one of many gorgeous bathrooms that Sarah Richardson, one of our design faves, has created," says Janet. "I am in love with the chunky crown moulding, the clean lines and the unfussy shapes of the fixtures and furnishings,"
“I love the juxtaposition of clean lines paired with organic wood features in this room,” says Joy. “The neutral colours let both shine and allow the eye to flow seamlessly over the entire room. Without those wooden accents, this room would have a totally different feel.”
“The arches on the glass cabinet doors and kitchen windows are very Barbara Barry inspired, and puts me in mind of her Bracelet Chair, though it’s actually by KraftMaid!” says Janet. “I also love the ‘baby cabinets’ up top — great for things you don’t use every day. I know because I have them in my own kitchen!”
“I love it when great design pops up in the most unexpected places,” says Joy. “These unique Moroccan stair stencils provide visual interest and make these stairs the undeniable star of the room.”
A few years ago, Janet came across a few magazine features on Annie and was fascinated. “She was living my dream life, salvaging antiques by the container-load from across Europe,” explains Janet. She recently rediscovered Annie when she was featured on TV and, once again, she’s obsessed. “Google her and you will be, too.” she says. “Her home in Jacksonville, Illinois is every bit as gorgeous on the inside as it is outside.”
“This room is light, airy and so full of character, without being overdone. I love that the table seems to go on forever, and the way the light fixtures float overhead,” says Joy. “Dark hardwood floors pop against the all-white walls and ceiling, and the curtains are the perfect shade of caramel.”
“In my dream home, the one inside my head, I have a space very much like this — white and bright and functional and dedicated to only one thing — flowers,” says Janet. “I love the utilitarian beadboard, the scroll shelf brackets and the no-nonsense concrete floor. Even my kids couldn’t ruin them!”
“Some people think eclectic is just another word for crazy — but it actually takes quite a bit of talent to pull it off,” says Joy. “Although these pieces of art are very different, they mesh together in an interesting and effortless way, and the zebra rug pulls everything together.”
