La Moraleja

Minimalist white box with hints of sea green and berry hues, grain sack linen on midcentury chairs, chippy painted furniture, patchwork kilims and a sleek almost invisible kitchen. Is it hard core minimalism tempered by eclecticism? White box architecture as theatrical stage for well loved pieces? La Moraleja, a 1984 house refurbished by ÁBATON is open, bright, a softer, less constrained minimalism. Beautifully livable.

New design book cause you can never have enough

We've posted about Sixx Design in the past, here and here. They are a husband and wife team (Bob and Cortney Novogratz) whom Jo and I have admired since we first came across their work. Their hip and bohemian style rocks, and I was SO excited to find out they have a book out called "Downtown Chic: Designing Your Dream Home: from Wreck to Ravishing". "One part practical guide, one part inspirational volume on creating a look for the home, the book pairs humorous anecdotes about the pitfalls and pleasures of renovation with a treasure trove of decorating tips: how to use both boutique and flea-market finds; how to inject lots of personality into a room affordably; how to decorate kids’ rooms so they appeal to children and adults; how to easily rehabilitate outdated furnishings; and many more." Their publicist sent a photo of the cover, and one of gorgeously pregnant Cortney. It's available on Amazon. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy!!
