Celebrating the Grape

Oct 23, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

It’s that time of year…the Niagara Wine Festival is on. Running through September 30, the region is focusing on the wineries and vineyards, tastings and events, all with a local flair. The odds are good that you will come home with a bottle or several based on new discoveries. For those who are passionate about their wine, stowing it on a shelf somewhere is not appropriate. And kitchen trends over the past couple years have seen a sharp decline in wine fridges. So where should your new vintages be stored prior to consumption? The wine cellar, naturally.

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Have you ever driven by a stockyard and wondered what becomes of all those stacked shipping containers when they are deemed no longer useful for transport? Increasingly, many are being transformed into usable spaces, both commercially and residentially.

Inflatable Structures Help Solve Space Dilemmas

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Do you think air pumps are just for tires and balloons? I think AirClad would strongly disagree. For years, the UK-based company has been producing temporary structures for both commercial and residential use that inflate when needed (usually for three days to three weeks) and deflate and neatly store away until they are needed again. Made of fabric, the structures are designed to compress with a ratio of 100m2 of usable space to 1 cubic metre when stored.

Design for the Greater Good – Mattel Children’s Hospital

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Though some see design as a waste of time, the truth of the matter is that design has the power to change lives. It can brighten a sunken mood. It can envelope and bring a sense of safety. It can also unite; bringing people together to focus on a worthwhile task or cause.

Colour + Colour + Neutral

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

"For me, colour-plus-colour-plus-colour isn’t as good an equation as colour-plus-colour-plus-neutral. Adding a neutral keeps colours from looking childish and amateurish, and colours look richer when they’re paired with neutrals." -Betsy Burnham (House Beautiful, June 2012)

The Design of Yoga

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

September is National Yoga Month. While a yoga practice should not focus on the look of the studio, a space can certainly impact one’s practice just as much as the combined presence of those practicing within the space. As an avid practitioner and teacher, I have compiled images of studios in which I would love to practice.

Space Saving Tables

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Small space living is certainly not a new discussion point on Design Bites, but Milano Smart Living (MSL) is a company that is new to me. MSL “offers a prestigious and diverse array of specialized furniture for small apartments, impressive and beautiful in each of their functions,” all of which are 100% crafted in Italy.

Living Within your Volume Requirements

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

It is hard for me to believe that two (2) people live in this awesome looking, but ultra tiny, home. At only 25 m2 (or 269 ft2), that means a living space about the size of the average office cubicle for each inhabitant. Yet the owners find they have more than enough space for themselves and overnight guests.

Spinning Like a Top

Sep 20, 2012 by MeCC Interiors

Given that it is the first day of the new school year for many (at least for those in North America), I thought the playful Orbit Stool ideal. And an educational implement, if you want to teach about rotation, balance, or other such things.
