Set in stone

This is about as rustic as it gets. Among stone walls and olive groves deep within the countryside of Salento, Southern Italy this 18th century home of architect Luca Zanaroli and his family is absolutely breathtaking. The simplicity of the interior draws your attention to the beauty of the architecture inside and the exterior beauty of the stone surrounded by lush vegetation. (Photos: Max Zambelli)

Moody Brazilian

The palette is restrained, black, neutrals, wood tones except for the flashes of yellow and gold. Spaces within the open plan room are defined by ceiling heights and furniture groupings while layers of texture prevent the whole from being sterile. Moody, masculine, urban, polished, Brazilian.

Inner City Blue

A loft renovation in Stockholm is stylish, relaxed and timeless, a bit like the inspiration pictures that informed the project - a brown cashmere coat, a pair of sand-colored sneakers and a plaza in Rome.

"When it was our turn to renew the the 200 square meter apartment our first step was to simplify everything we felt was too much, in terms of dimensions and materials. The task was to create a relaxed, soft environment and the main interior feature is a dark, low-lying base line that runs like a unifying horizon through the whole apartment. All walls and ceilings are painted in apricot pink and sandy beige tones which gives a soft, hazy atmosphere, creating a dynamic but gentle contrast to the blue-gray base. Nothing in the apartment is white!!"

A home in Saint-Germain 

A little dose of France gorgeousness, also from Marianne Tiegen. Gawd she ROCKS! (And in case you forgot, there was this Ibiza pad and this to-die-for apartment in Paris that Jo featured last summer)

Chalet Vieux Valet Verbier

Last week marked 9 years of this blog's existence. It has been a long yet very fun 9 years I have to admit, but after all the hours upon hours upon HOURS of blog research it seems to take alot to REALLY get me excited about a home these days. While getting this post ready, I was so damn excited about it I wanted to crank my tunes, jump up and dance on my desk. This chalet designed by Marianne Tiegen is going on my list of top 5 favourite homes I have ever featured. It is a truly magical blend of rustic, industrial and mid-century styles....all the best rolled into one.
