A location home in Hackney

Before I head out for breakfast and errands, and then spend the remainder of the day at the folks place hanging out at the pool and enjoying some BBQ (because SUMMER!!!) I leave you with this gorgeous newly renovated Georgian home in Hackney, UK that is available via JJ Locations. Love the bold colour choice in the living and dining rooms, and the little kitchen is adorable. And I want that polar bear side table. :)

Wanda Café Optimista

This has got to be the prettiest café I have ever seen. Wanda Café Optimista is located in Madrid and was designed by Parolio. After the recent years, of recession in Madrid, Parolio wanted to design a place that communicates the opposite: projecting vitality, joy, color and a positive outlook on life. The idea is that when you enter Wanda you enter the emotional universe of vacations, summer, Surf and everything positive you feel on these fun days of the year. Inside Wanda it’s always sunny, there is always a good vibe. That description alone would have me stopping in. The pastel colours with pops of neon, all of the really cute patterned pillows and the amazing pattern on the bar make this such a happy place, where you would never want to take your last sip of coffee.

A 19th century Brooklyn tenement turned brownstone

One of the blog posts I had done while I was down south was about architecture firm Creative Renovations. It seems some of the photos I had featured of a sparse townhome in Red Hook, Brooklyn, have since been transformed into an eclectic and stunning home. Creative Renovations worked on this project with architect Rafe Churchill and his wife, interior designer Heide Hendricks. The 19th century six-family tenement was a diamond in the rough, and when purchased had already been almost entirely gutted.

Lacking any character, it was repurposed into a single family home with a first floor apartment. Rafe and Heidi went a traditional route with the decor, with some loft-like qualities and a maritime theme (it is a few blocks from the waterfront). At first I was a bit put off by the somewhat odd colourful trim detail.... 

But with the furnishings in place - an eclectic blend of traditional and mid-century, it makes complete sense. It was an inexpensive way to add an architectural feature and make it pop. Just the right amount of quirkiness. (Photos: John Gruen)

A colourful family home in Fontenay-sous-Bois

Add a studio space, beautiful floors and rambling vines draped over the house and it's ticking all the boxes for me.
