A dreamy Madrid home in gold and black

I am unequivocally, unquestionably, undeniably in love with this home. An absolute dream in shades of gold and black, it is located in Madrid and owned by model Laura Ponte. It was featured in Architectural Digest Spain back in 2009 and is apparently now for sale. If I had the zillion dollars she's asking for it, I would throw in another zillion and demand she leave all the furnishings...or at the very least those chandeliers in the dining room. SWOON!!!

Working on a Saturday

I was almost going to call this one "Shopping on a Saturday" but, as wonderful as it would be to spend time in this store as a customer, can you imagine how fabulous it must be to work in such a beautiful space? As I always say, if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. Ulla Johnson boutique by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture and Design.

A traditional home by Tammy Connor

A little bit of traditional to end off the work week. This home designed by South Carolina/Alabama based Tammy Connor is exquisite, carefully curated yet inviting and that is the traditional I enjoy. I am trying to decide what I love more - that foyer with the painted mural or the dining spaces. I am dying over those upholstered dining chairs - would love to see them against a weathered harvest table. Yum!

Scandinavian modernism in New York

Scandinavian minimalism meets industrial in this Tribeca loft by Søren Rose Studio. From it's original, now whitewashed oak floors and exposed brick to the super slick marble and stainless steel kitchen what's not to love? The old windows playing against the black steel and glass walls, the use of wood veneered storage walls to warm the space, the Scandinavian style furniture, the skylight flooding the space with lovely light. Perfect.

Stalking an artist's apartment

I'm stalking the inner-city Sydney suburb of Surry Hills. I'm stalking what would normally be a rather unremarkable 2 bedroom apartment except ... I'm stalking artist Guy Maestri's apartment. It's amazing how a stellar art collection can elevate the unremarkable to the exceptional. The price may be stratospheric but unfortunately that's due to Sydney's inflated market not wishful thinking that the contents are thrown in for the price. Link here while it lasts.
