Oh goodness! Oh double goodness. Double gosh. Double great and double double got to have. Two French apartments, St. Honoré and Faidherbe by Parisian architects Flora de Gastines & Anne Geistdoerfer of double g. Sophisticated and contemporary, colourful and clever. I'm hyperventilating I love these spaces so much.
ScavulloDesign created the interiors of this weekender just steps away from the water in Stinson beach, California. Large doors and windows bring the outside in while the sandy colour palette and blue accents of course give the coastal vibe but the interiors are in no way cliched. Casually elegant and family friendly, durable and darling from wicker to waterproof fabrics. Finally, accents throughout reflect the relaxed feel and include the family's collection of sea shells that they have found on the beach outside. What a lovely spot to get away to.

A tiny rundown 550 sqft shoebox flat in Singapore has undergone a remarkable transformation. The owner and her mother needed a stylish and modern home. It was time for a complete rejuvenation by Stanley Tham and Kusnin Tan from KNQ Associates. "While she is not exactly living alone, we wanted to create a chic and functional 'semi-bachelorette pad' which would reflect her personal style as much as possible. We wanted to transform the once ho-hum dwelling into a serene and cozy retreat that she could escape to at the end of a busy day. One which will also not be too feminine." The transformation from before to after is amazing. I particularly like the conversion of a utility room at the back of the kitchen into a private play-and-work room for the owner with built-in seating for lounging and watching TV as well as guest sleep overs. You can read more about the renovation on Home Rejuvenation.
No not sad but glad. Not a colour I'm normally drawn to but I'm changing my mind. Think indigo and shibori, natural dyes and fabrics all with a crisp, fresh vibe. All that is fab about blue interpreted by Swedish stylist Eva Lindh.
