I love Brazilian design. The work of their young architects and interior designers has a freshness, an irreverence, a sense of fun. It's a super cool mix of eras, of young and old, high and low. It provokes and cajoles. Casa Cor 2015 by Rio de Janeiro architectural firm Studio RO+CA.
Before I head off to a full day helping my dear husband with his Daff Design booth at the Idle Hands Art, Craft and Vintage Sale where I plan to get all of my Christmas shopping done, I thought I would share this glorious century old loft in Barcelona. Once belonging to the current owners' grandparents, the space was renovated and as much of the original detail restored while modernizing where possible. The kitchen is a fantastic, and the vaulted brick ceiling is such a beautiful reminder of the structure's history. Eclectic furnishings (including a worn leather chesterfield *GASP*) and black elements elevate the coolness factor. Via Nuevo Estilo. Decor: Luzio. Photos: Montse Garriga.
A few months ago Architectural Digest Spain published a feature on their website about incorporating art in your home. I had to share some of my favourites because I adore art, especially photography, and their round-up was superb. Here you go. Eye candy for your Friday. Happy weekend everyone!
