Alia Bengana - part 1

Alia Bengana is a French architect from Algiers currently based in Paris who kindly sent us photos of a few of her unpublished projects to share with our readers. This first project is the complete refurbishment and division of a 195 square metre Parisian apartment into 2 separate apartments. This is great - I dig the mid-century/modern/vintage feel, that marble bathroom is heavenly and helloooooooo herringbone floor!

Stalking modern boho

If my last stalking home left you cold with its unsympathetic, icy and bland extension (you were cruel in your comments) then perhaps this North Carlton house might be just what you were hoping for.

Hand crafted materials, found objects, organic elements. The perfect retreat. Beth Dillard of Notre Maison in Rosemary Beach, Florida.

P.S. Check out her blog too.

Take me away

I could really use a break from the chaos of everyday, and when I came across this home captured by one of my all-time favourite photographers Jordi Canosa I was momentarily transported to a gorgeous villa in Barcelona. A place where wonderful memories could be made and relaxation is essential - how could you not feel at ease in a place like this?

Swedish neutral apartment

My twin sister sent me a link to an awesome little Swedish apartment for sale. According to the photo of the plans it's a studio but has all the amenities - decent sized kitchen, a great built-in desk, lounge chair for TV watching, washer/dryer and a balcony. What's even better is the decor - it's everything I'm obsessing with these days - black/white/touches of wood, industrial lighting, white tiles with dark grout, linen.....
