A small minimalist apartment in Bucharest

Architect and interior designer Alex Calin sent in this project of a small, Nordic-inspired minimalist apartment that I wanted to share: The studio has about 40 sqm and it is located downtown Bucharest, in a building located near the Cismigiu park, in a historical city center. By the time we started the project, nobody had made changes or improvements of any kind from the date of commissioning of the use, somewhere in the mid 60s. The significant changes were losing the balcony and inserting it into living space. This is how a little space for conversation and a work area appeared and at the same time this has increased glass surface adding up extra light. One of the former windows has got a bookshelf open on both sides that filters light in the sleeping area and delineates pleasantly the interior space. The furnishings are in shades of white, with small touches of oak and dotted here and there by a few spots black. The minimal furniture has a touch of nordic inspiration. All the furniture was designed and executed together with partners from Mobilaunicat.ro and is made to completely cover the minimal needs posed by such a space. The owner has a passion for film and music (he works in the creative industry) so the walls are decorated with black and white portraits of several iconic characters (Tilda Swinton, David Bowie, Grace Jones and Patti Smith).

A Swedish apartment filled with vintage finds

Happy Easter dear DTI readers! It's a miserable day here in Ottawa but at least the rain is turning the brown grass green and we have no snow left. Bring on summer!! Whether you celebrate Easter or not hope you have a great day with family and friends. I'm off later to my folks' place for turkey dinner and I'm bringing the dessert (made easy thanks to an incredible bake sale the Country Cat Sanctuary held yesterday out in Kemptville). And tomorrow I hope to visit the sanctuary and bring home a super sweet, skinny little cat that I can't get out of my head that I think needs to live in a real home and get some extra attention (that is hard when you're living among 150 others). Anyhoo, I spotted this apartment in Malmö yesterday @ MilK Decoration and had to share because it's a Scandinavian dream of funky vintage finds and treasures from the homeowners' travels. Love the accents in black too.

A charming family apartment 

A renovated Art Deco apartment in Darling Point, Sydney, home to Kate Nixon of Busatti Australia and her family, is full of charm and character as well as the beautiful Italian fabrics that Nixon imports. A neutral palette allows for accents of pattern and colour to take the limelight while delightful vignettes provide the eye candy.

Never underestimate the power of neutrals

Beige, white, gold, tan, brass, brown, sand....all of these colours together make for such a warm, sophisticated and polished space. With the assemblage of gorgeous furnishings by the oh-so-talented Brian Paquette, this condo is a beauty.

A Chelsea apartment designed as a gentleman's club

Everything British designer Hubert Zandberg touches turns to gold. I absolutely adore every interior design project this man has taken on. This one is no exception. This two-bedroom Chelsea apartment was renovated and designed to offer his out-of-town client a playful take on his own private gentleman's club for short stays and meetings. Drama as soon as you enter with bold wallpaper (used throughout) and large scale furnishings, then the masculine vibe and dark colours stand out throughout the rest of the apartment. It is really stunning.
