Working on a Saturday

I would have absolutely no problems heading into work on a weekend if my office looked like this. Yes please! Stylish, streamlined, bright, classic. BHDM Design's own studio. A design firm's workplace is always a great indicator of their work. But wait! There's more. The Manhattan-based design studio can do quirky and whimsical as well ... for a law firm. Think life size orange sharks floating across ceilings. In a law firm? I'd be heading in to work on a weekend if there were sharks on my ceiling!

Bride's Row

I had to share another Brooklyn row house with you, again by architect Lorraine Bonaventura, because I cannot get enough. 1850's house was completely restored after being taken down to the brick...Mantels were restored, plaster work recast, herringbone floors meticulously restored and replaced, new limestone and antique french oak floors added to kitchen and dining level. Every surface was completely redone, rebuilt or restored. Radiant heating, air conditioning was added, brick work repointed, new sand cast iron exterior railings, brownstone facade replaced, new weight and chain mahogany windows with antique glass, all wood moldings replaced to replicate original moldings, original window shutters restored. It's essentially a brand new house! But with character! This home has such lovely details...it's unfortunate that the decor is bland (IMHO) - I would have added so much more drama with some (better) colour, and a bit of pattern, and some statement light fixtures. Oh, I could dream about what I would do to this home for hours. (Photos via Houzz)

Dreaming in the dark

As someone who has painted her own bedroom black I can fully attest to the calming, cocooning nature of a dark room. No dark dreams. Just dreaming in the dark. Beautiful bedroom by Meme Interior Design & Architecture.



In a parallel universe I am French. I live in this beautiful home. I'm surrounded by history and personal treasures, the rooms traditional, slightly faded with a ripple of the modern. By LB Architecte and interiors by Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi.

In a parallel universe I am French, pencil thin and always 35.
