Damien Langlois-Meurinne

I regret not titling this post "Lighting porn" as these spaces by French designer Damien Langlois-Meurrine are outfitted with some of the most spectacular lights I have ever seen. And some of them are designed by Damien himself. These rooms are glamorous and luxe, but the lighting takes them to another level. They are pieces of art, making a statement.

Is it only Tuesday? Not Friday? Still most of the working week in front of me? Urgh! Time for a virtual escape to the French countryside. To Bassiviere in the Lot-et-Garonne region, a tra­di­tional farm­house and 17th cen­tury out­build­ings reimagined as con­tem­po­rary barn chic holiday apartments. Want to runaway with me?

A Paris studio apartment by The New Design Project

I can't get enough of The New Design Project's work. I spotted this beauty (located in Le Marais, Paris) on their site and had to share it as well. The perfect little Parisian hangout. The challenge in this 30m2 (320ft2) studio was to retain the quirkiness of the space whilst making it more practical. We decided to create an alcove bedroom with a half height wall to improve the general flow whilst keeping the apartment bright and airy. A simple and monochromatic palette was used in the "utilitarian areas" (kitchen, bathroom) to let the ambient charm shine through. Most of the items are flea market finds (Paris, London, Isle-sur-la-Sorgue) but we mixed vintage with industrial pieces, and high street with designer, to create an overall more eclectic look.

A Paris apartment

We can never get enough of Paris based interior designer Sarah Lavoine. Here is one of her latest residential projects - a classy apartment in Paris' 7ème arrondissement completed earlier this year. It seems alot more tailored and toned down compared to her previous work but it is eye catching nonetheless. And she always makes room for something a little quirky. How about a polar bear in front of the fireplace?
