Brian O'Tuama Architects

Sometimes I get really excited while doing blog research. The portfolio of London firm Brian O'Tuama Architects definitively got my heart rate up. I'm not quite clear why...there is nothing overly exciting about the residential space they have created. But I think that is the key. They are not over-designed, flashy, complex...they are simple and understated and all you really need. Here are snippets from several of their projects....with my absolute favourite coming up next so stay tuned :)

Gelati spotted rooms of fun

Neither Kim nor I have kids. It goes a long way to explaining why we don't feature children's rooms on Desire to Inspire. (Besides which Kim's twin sister Julia has a great kid's design blog the boo and the boy so why compete :) The trouble is when I came across Petite Vintage Interiors by Belinda Kurtz I started oohing and aahing and gushing. I stopped short of wanting to have a child. I'll just have me some of the gelati spotted, vintage fun instead. I wish my room had looked like this when I was little.

Hotel Baume Paris

I have shared a couple of Paris hotels here in the past, specifically La Belle Juliette and Hôtel du Pantheon. Alain Bisotti sent links to photos of the latest hotel - Hôtel Baume. It is as beautiful as the others. In a couple of weeks my parents are heading to London, the Canary Islands and coincidentally Paris...I am thinking about finding a way to cram myself in one of their suitcases. And this is absolutely where I would stay. I particularly love this first room. Lovely muted tones and the pale pink and black with mirrors are perfect touches of girly glam.

A Parisian trinket

A trifle, a trinket, a gem of a studio apartment by Marianne Evennou ... chez Duncan ... 25m² ... Paris. Bigger is not always better.
