A colourful apartment

I found this fun apartment while doing some blog research and had to share. The 65m2 space is located in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France and is the creation of Turin, Italy based architecture firm MG2 Architetture. It's a funky blend of modern and mid-century, bold and sassy colour and some of my all-time favourite lighting.

Serena Eller Vainicher update

It's been a few years since Jo featured the mesmerizing images by Italian photographer Serena Eller Vainicher, and it seems that her work just keeps on inspiring. Eye-catching and perfectly composed. European spaces always intrigue me. Who else can get away with somewhat tacky patterned tile floors?

Cactus in the kitchen

Nothing fancy, just a very white apartment decorated with an odd assortment of lighting, furniture and a huge cactus in the kitchen. Because WHY NOT?! Via Le case di Elixìr.

Crate madness

Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian readers! I am beyond excited to head to my parents later today and eat my face off. :) Speaking of giving thanks, I know I should be thankful that I have a home (among many other things) but WOW - I'd rather live in this funky loft! I have an obsession with vintage storage items - particularly wooden crates, and I have never seen anything like this before. It's crate madness!!!! They're EVERYWHERE!!! They're makeshift walls, a kitchen island base, a bed, night stands, a coffee table, sofas, a bathroom vanity..... (via Le case di Elixìr) **OOPS - Jo already blogged it here but these photos are much better)

Zash

It's a Monday. I want to escape the working week. Time to runaway to a luxury getaway faraway, at least in my dreams. Zash is, the the hotel's own words "a country boutique hotel where historical fragments meet a contemporary taste, in an 'elegantly quiet' project, to let nature's physicality emerge, to respect our past vestige and to satisfy our traveller's needs. A place which is refined in its rooms, rural in its context and vital for the soul."

Old meets new in a startling juxtaposition that makes each element stronger. Clean, minimalist lines enhance the crumbling stone shell of the original building. Perched on the hillside amidst citrus trees Zash is in eastern Sicily in the province of Catania. A building of contrasts just like Sicily is a land of contrasts, hulking Mt Etna and crystal blue seas, barren lava and rich agricultural land, where the warmth of stone meets sleek manmade finishes, rugged and luxe.
