Pretty pastels in a home in Paris

Jo has featured the work of Paris design firm GCG Architectes a few times here on the blog (like here, here and here) and I am totally smitten with this talented crew. Style out the wazoo, an unwavering need to add random colours, patterns and architectural details throughout their projects...their unique approach is unlike anything I have ever seen. Yep, safe to say I am their biggest fan. And this home in the Boulogne Billancourt suburb of Paris decked out in mostly pastels is fabulously random, as I would expect from GCG. Photos: Robin Petillault

Stealth House

"A heritage listed grand terrace-house is re-configured in the form of a three-storey home to create a sense of place for a young growing family. In a dense urban setting where heritage takes respectful precedence, natural light, privacy and accommodation form the battlefront and are achieved in large by stealth."

Traditional with hints of modern

The design approach of Louisiana based firm Ty Larkins Interiors is "liveable elegant modern". Mixing antique/vintage pieces with modern is the way they roll and coincidentally, how I roll too. This home is on the traditional side but has some modern lines that makes it less stuffy and more cool. Inspired by city houses, this detached Greek Revival Townhouse was designed and built in an established leafy neighborhood by Ty Larkins Interiors. Every effort was taken to make it convincingly "period" suggesting it had been built a century earlier. The traditional and formal interior architecture is juxtaposed against a young and modern decor, creating a beautiful and unexpected tension.
