Gardens by Nelson Byrd Woltz

The temperature has risen here about 30°C and I am dreaming of all the things I would love to do in my yard once the piles of snow melt away. My husband has made an absolute mess of the front yard by parking his work pick-up plow truck right on the front lawn so I am preparing myself to die of embarrassment when the snow is gone and we are left with a mud pile (not helping at all that we live on a very busy road). As soon as I get this post completed I am stashing a bunch of these photos away for reference. These gardens, walkways, backyards and rooftop patios by landscape architecture firm Nelson Byrd Woltz (located in Charlottesville Virginia and New York City) are soooooo beautiful. The outdoor space above is magical - I love grasses and very "feathery" plants that look like cotton candy.

Parisian chic

Don't get me wrong. I love Haussmannian apartments. But stunning as they are they need a firm but deft design hand so that the the contents are not overpowered by the almost saccharine sweet plaster embellishments, the commanding windows, the drool worthy floors. Sandra Benhamou is a story teller, a lover of light, of beautiful objects and furniture, a woman who embraces eclecticism. Hell, she runs with it but her style is clean, with attention to detail and a dash of humour.

Casa en el sur

Today's daydream involves a cool drink by the pool then a saunter through the stylish rooms of this house in the south by Madrid-based design firm Melián Randolph. Mediterranean chic.

A colourful home

Talk about making a statement from the outside in! This home designed by architect Peter Pennoyer is a stately gem with a bit of an unexpected choice of red for trim colour...but then when you walk inside it all makes complete sense. The homeowners appear to have no fear of colour so I would expect an designer such as Katie Ridder to make the interior a random assortment of some very bold colour choices. And it starts the second you walk in the front door! Not sure how I would feel living with these colours but the architecture of the home is really spectacular.

I want 

I'm like a spoilt child. If I see something I like then I want what I see. Please mummy can I have a beach hut right on the beach? Just meters from the water? Pleeeeeeaaaase. Except I'd want sand not shingle but you can't have it all. Beach House by Studiomama.
