A 1400s Tuscan farmhouse gets a modern makeover

Take an ancient stone farmhouse in Tuscany - add some subtle modern additions then furnish it with some art deco style furniture with accents of brass and some glamorous glass light fixtures. What you end up with is one of the dreamiest homes I have ever seen. Via Bo Bedre, photos by Monica Spezia.

First stalking of the year

I love when the real estate market starts to heat up after the holiday break. More houses listed and a greater chance of hitting the design jackpot. If you are a regular reader you will know I have a thing for older houses in inner city suburbs and if they have an architect designed modern extension out back then even better. I'm stalking in Paddington, Sydney and I think it might be love. Exposed old brick, glass transition between heritage and new, slick open-plan living areas with a great connection between in and out. There's even a car lift and I don't know why that excites me but it does. With Sydney house prices we'll never afford it but it's all about the stalking and the gawking. Link here while it lasts.

A bohemian beach house 

Before the weekend begins I wanted to share a little peek into this project again by Twofold LA. Located in Venice Beach, it has a Cali-boho vibe featuring a gorgeous shibori wallpaper and of course a little bit of glam with the blue velvet with nail-head detail sofa. The fabulous patterns continue in the kitchen with a bold graphic backsplash tile. SO FUN!

Twofold LA revisit

It has been too long since we featured the designs of Jenn Pablo and Olivia Korenberg of interiors and events firm Twofold LA. They are still rocking spaces with their super casual and cozy yet super stylish approach. Always bright and fresh with textures and subtle elements of bling. Beautiful! (Previous features can be found here and here).

When compromise is no compromise

What do you do when the parents want no colour and no fuss and the kids are talking parakeet hues and bunnies for the bedroom? There may be a compromise but definitely not in the style department. Love this New York City loft by Monique Gibson. A fabulously family home for all.
