The timbered house

It is as if an exquisitely restrained, minimalist interior has been inserted into a 19th century timbered house. Colour is used sparingly and when it is, coloured blocked "boxes" contain the new. The stark contrast between old and new heightens the impact of both. Maison à Colombages by 05AM Arquitectura.

Sunday at the barbershop

I love my hair stylist, but he works out of a rowhouse he owns that he never really decorated and is waiting for an offer so he's not putting any money into it. Because I spend at least 2 hours a day there every 8 weeks, it would be a much more pleasant experience if it looked as awesome as this barbershop (but he often brings his dogs, so that makes up for the lack of design). One Love Barbershop in Nice, France was designed by Baldini Architecture and I adore the somewhat random and dark colour palette. That shade of green is delish.

Working on a Saturday

Many years ago I worked weekends in an art gallery to help put myself through university. No one had to drag me kicking and screaming to work. I loved it. So I guess featuring this gallery design by lsl architects doesn't really fit my usual mantra for working on a Saturday but what the heck I love the black and white contrast and the strict aesthetic of the space.

An eclectic apartment in Paris by Camille Hermand

This 350m2  in Paris is a total dream with to-die-for moldings galore and my favourite chevron hardwood throughout. Add a floral wallpaper that I am completely smitten with, massive ornate mirrors, a luxurious kitchen and some bold paint colours and I am about ready to move right in! Another stunner by the incredibly talented Camille Hermand Architectures
