Sunday at the barbershop

I love my hair stylist, but he works out of a rowhouse he owns that he never really decorated and is waiting for an offer so he's not putting any money into it. Because I spend at least 2 hours a day there every 8 weeks, it would be a much more pleasant experience if it looked as awesome as this barbershop (but he often brings his dogs, so that makes up for the lack of design). One Love Barbershop in Nice, France was designed by Baldini Architecture and I adore the somewhat random and dark colour palette. That shade of green is delish.

Spanish Mission style renovation

A sweet renovation of Spanish style home in Los Angeles by Jette Creative. Exposed beams were added, floors stained dark, encaustic tiles transformed kitchen and bathrooms and a limited palette of black and white was highlighted with blues, greens and brass. The exterior was reworked with stucco and paint while a self contained studio is the prize at the end of the garden. So stylish, so bright and fresh, so cool!
