So French so fabulous

Oh the French. They have that certain something. Effortless style and sophistication. A little bit rustic with simple luxury, primitive next to midcentury, vibrant colour playing against whitewash. An understanding of what is needed and what is not. Be style my beating heart. Maison des champs, Sainte-Foys-Lès-Lyon by interior stylist Nathalie Rives.

Mid-century Parisian chic in Monaco

An apartment in Monaco can only be one thing - STYLISH! This mid-century vibing pad has a Parisian chic vibe that I have come to expect from Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet. The lighting throughout this space is fantastic - especially that spunik light over the dining table. WOWZERS!!!

Riad Mena & Beyond

Hump day? What hump day? No we're all on a virtual getaway to Marrakech, to Riad Mena & Beyond. Just when I though my love affair with all things Moroccan might be waning I'm smitten by this traditional riad with it's minimalist interiors and iconic 20th century furniture pieces thrown into the mix.  The "beyond" bit? Forty-five minutes outside of Marrakech, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains is the Riad Mena & Beyond outpost. A fully-functioning permaculture farm where you can spend the day in wonderful nature, enjoy a seasonal picnic, or even spend some nights in the rustically charming houses. I'll be back at the main house waiting by the pool.

A Victorian townhouse in London with mid century touches

I had to share this Victorian townhouse I spotted from the March issue of Homes & Gardens magazine because it's everything I love all mixed together in one gorgeous package. A restored heritage home with traditional details, a neutral colour palette, mid-century furnishings, vintage glam light fixtures, brass accents throughout, a modern custom kitchen and and an outdoor space make this home pretty much perfection.

Minimalist extension 

The original house may be full of Victorian era charm but the new extension with its clean lines, neutral palette and natural materials is the perfect complement. Think minimalist with a mid century vibe. Seddon Residence by Melbourne-based architectural design firm Templeton.
