Baroque in Paris

Posted on fév 7, 2013 | 0 comments

Welcome in the remarkable world of Lee Radziwill, Jackie Kennedy’s sister, and her apartment in Paris, which she designed herself. Ideally situated, the balcony looks out onto the Avenue Montaigne in Paris. A symphony of light, white and deep pink of falling rose petals, rose silk… in a baroque spirit.

Scandi 50′s

Posted on jan 22, 2013 | 0 comments

Today we are heading to Seddon, suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Emma and Damon have been living here for twelve years, and have managed to squeeze four bedrooms and two bathrooms into this modest Victorian cottage. The Scandinavian and mid-century design is clearly present here, but also a distinctly Australian aesthetic, using a colour palette of desert orange and gumleaf grey/green.

Blooklyn artist

Posted on jan 4, 2013 | 0 comments

The artist Anthony Goicolea renovated this town house in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The multilevel house has a basement studio; an open kitchen and sitting room; a mezzanine living room and office; and two bedrooms above that. Levels of windows and a glass partition between the mezzanine and kitchen flood the place with light. The furnishings include thrift-shop pieces, like the 16-year-old sofa in the mezzanine living area, next to a Restoration Hardware armchair. On the mezanine, the sliding door of the guest bathroom doubles as a blackboard.

Scandinavian white

Posted on jan 3, 2013 | 0 comments

This lovely 67 sqm apartment is situated in Johanneberg, in the south of Göteborg, Sweden. Very bright, this home is characterized by the Scandinavian style with soft touches of colours that pop against all the white. The wall between the kitchen and the living room was taken down to create a big open space.

Originality and joyfulness is brought by all the details : colourfull butterflies on the living room lamp, a kitchen illuminated with five bulbs in different heights…
