A complete renovation of a tiny Parisian apartment

Paris-based interior designer Adrien Pillay sent over some photos of one of his projects - the renovation (and decoration) of a tiny late 1800's 365 sq ft apartment, and the transformation is incredible! (Photos: Anaëlle Le Roy). I love when we are sent before photos, and in this case it really showcases the amount of work involved in this project. 

EEEEKKKK! But look at it now!! Simple, beautiful details and some great space-saving solutions.

A weekend home with ocean views

With views like this who cares what the house looks like?! But when it's as fabulous as this - BONUS! An interior landscape is created which merges into the surrounding external landscape. Materials and colours are drawn from the local environment and counterbalance the intense blue ocean hues. Natural timbers, local stone, textures tiles and muted stones are selected to mimic the surrounds. Selected paint and tile colours reflect the deep oranges and reds found in the local stone and local flora. The house is grand in scale, yet the spaces are relaxed yet sophisticated, modular and flexible. The balanced selection of imported and local furniture, lighting and materials celebrates the quality of local design within a global design environment. By FMD Architects.

A vintage industrial apartment by artKRAFT

I have lots of love for all things vintage and industrial so I am crushing on this attic apartment in Budapest sent in by the lovely industrial design shop artKRAFT. The furnishings they brought in are pretty awesome, and add in the most amazing windows and herringbone hardwood and I am ALL OVER THIS. I would add some dark paint here and there and some really funky photographic art and VOILÀ! (Photos: FOTODEKO

Industrial Shaker kitchen

"Industrial" and "Shaker" - not two words that usually go together but this showroom kitchen sees Bristol-based Sustainable Kitchens take a classic shaker-style cabinet and up the ante with a concrete counter, industrial-style tap, copper pendent lighting and reclaimed scaffold plank flooring. The wall of larder cupboards has me swooning but then you all know I go weak at the knees for a good British kitchen.
