Old-world elegance meets vintage in Madrid

I am completely in love with this renovated 19th century apartment in Madrid. The original architectural details including exposed beams and brickwork alone have me about to pass out, let alone the fact that this space is furnished with a wonderful random assortment of antique/vintage pieces. That chandelier over the dining table is especially scrumptious. Ana Cabellos and Elisa Fernández of La Traviesa de Conde Duque worked some magic here. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Clock House

A sad and sorry 1960s mid-terrace building in Finsbury Park, London has had new life breathed into it by architectural studio Archmongers. By knocking through the internal walls and creating a glass and timber extension the ground floor layout is more connected and so much brighter. I love the use of glass bricks, terrazzo, tiles, rubber and plywood, even the quirky "brain-coloured" tile and clock on the facade. Tired and dated is now energetic and creative.

A converted nuns' residence in New York

What would you do with 6,200 square feet of living space in Brooklyn Heights, NY? Interior designer Britt Zunino and architect husband Damian of Studio DB turned what was once the 1830's home to the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor into their new sweet digs for themselves and their 4 children. Lots of modern touches and spaciousness I can only dream of, and a fireplace (original?) in the living room that I almost passed out over when I saw it. Catch more fabulous photos of this dazzling home in the latest issue of Living Etc.

Working on a Saturday

It's like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish. White and wood with pops of greenery and mint. The studio offices of interior designer Marta Castellano are so fresh and fun.
