Streamline Moderne

Interior designer Chad McPhail has lovingly brought this 1930's Art Deco Streamline Moderne home into the new century, refreshing and reinventing but not slavishly restoring. All the Deco details are there but in the hands of Los Angles-based McPhail the home is sophisticated and stylish, modern but not modernised. Beautifully created and curated, inside and out.

Modern farmhouse

A contemporary family home with a farmhouse feel in Medina, Washington by H2 Design + Build. The house may be new but its contents have been carefully collected over time. Crisp and white but warmed by lovely wooden floors and layers of texture. Pops of colour are used sparingly for impact and personality. I love the pared back simplicity of the exterior, the white contrasting beautifully with the green of the garden.

Diving into the weekend

With only a couple of days until winter in my part of the world we are still experiencing summer temperatures. Where is winter? I want to pull out my winter wardrobe and layer up. Instead it's perfect weather for lounging around a fabulous backyard swimming pool like this one by Pepo Botanic Design. I guess I shouldn't complain too much.

Up on the roof

I'm rounding out the week with another project from French design firm GCG Architectes, a rooftop home and garden terrace. The architects modified an off-the-plan house, streamlining, ironing out layout problems, improving functionality and brightness. Then the fun began with interiors by Kierszbaum Intérieurs. Eclectic in style, exuberant in taste, fun and fab meets OTT, it is like a magpie collection of trinkets and treasures. Just when you think you cannot take any more there is the garden. Oh the garden. A little piece of paradise on the banks of the Seine.

The Little Monastery

Hooray for Fridays! The weekend is just about to begin and my mind is turning to getaways. How about a Belgian B&B? Bricks and render and a monotone palette of greys and creams and linen and lush lawns with clipped buxus? We can take tea and relax in the summer house or explore the countryside and be back home in time for work on Monday. OK I'm daydreaming but what a lovely dream. The Little Monastery in Damme, Belgium.
