Perhaps I've been living under a rock lately, but I only just discovered (thanks to some random googling) the blog The Socialite Family, created by Constance Gennari. Formerly a children’s fashion journalist and then Art buyer for an advertising agency, I recently decided to immerse myself in the world of blogging to share with you my true passion: observing interior design through the eyes of a family, whether in Paris, New York or anywhere else in the world. I am particularly inspired and passionate about these contemporary, urban families and through this blog, wish to inspire you with my interpretation of these unique environments and people. I LOVE this blog - it's essentially MilK magazine in blog form. And speaking of MilK magazine, check out this stunning vacation home of Isis-Colombe Combréas, editor at MilK, her husband and their 2 children (aged 9 & 15). It is located on l'Ile de Ré, an island off the west cost of France. It's pretty much my dream home - a rustic structure with a black and white colour scheme with some designer pieces mixed in with vintage finds. GORG!!!
This apartment is nothing fancy and isn't too "out there"....it's sort of JUST RIGHT. The colour scheme is right (grey $ white with black accents is always so good), the wood flooring and accent walls are gorgeous and add some warmth, the kitchen is picture perfect, and the subway tiles/stone keep things a bit more graphic than boring drywall. Yep, I could settle in quite nicely here. Again via The Village
Very little is revealed from the street. Hints are glimpsed along garden beds and walls. Once inside, the public areas of this Melbourne house open to a sunny courtyard blurring the boundary between in and out. A bluestone ledge runs around the room from courtyard to kitchen providing hearth, shelves and seating. Private areas look out to raised garden beds, screening and sheltering the spaces within.

There once was a girl from Quebec by the name Geneviève Labbé who studied interior design. After she graduated she ended up moving to Denmark, met and married a lovely Danish boy, and then moved to Sweden where she landed a job working for Ikea on their catalogs and brochures. (DREAM JOB) This is her apartment in Malmö. And no, it's not completely furnished by Ikea. She prefers to mix styles and loves incorporating vintage items in her home. And then I moved in. :) (via Le Soleil)
