A modern bachelor pad

This modern bachelor pad designed by San Francisco interior designer Regan Baker really hits all the right notes. Love the lightest and the touches of orange and blue throughout, and it is not too masculine. The overall color pallet was derived from his uncle’s large scale highway artwork, which is now displayed proudly above the custom sofa. From there we built the design around his love for modern spaces, his personal hobby of photography and his love for music. With the exception of a few great pieces of art, we worked hand in hand with our client to assure his bachelor pad was masculine, yet casual modern and in the end created a bachelor pad Ryan Gosling would be happy to bring his dates back to.

Stalking the 70s

Be still my beating heart. I'm having palpitations. My favourite architectural real estate site Modern House has a new listing and it has me in a spin. Rippon House (1971) by Gerry Rippon of Towell & Rippon. I think I could have called this post stalking chair porn. An amazing house, an amazing collection of furniture.

Tulip chair extravaganza

Nuevo Estilo

When this post publishes I will be in Montreal with my mother's massive SUV (while she's partying it up with my dad in Paris) loaded up with a set of 8 tulip chairs for my dining room. I am super excited to have acquired these for a great price, and EIGHT of them! What this means is my husband has to get cracking on building me a new dining table. I'm thinking about a reclaimed wood top (not too rough) with some sort of powder coated steel base. Anyway, I thought it fitting that today I do a round-up of tulip chairs in dining rooms. Finding these photos has made me even more stoked about my latest furniture purchase. Photos to come ASAP! (Along with living room pics - the painting is just about complete!!!)

Leather, wood and stone

I fell in love/hate with this cottage/home in Spain featured in a recent issue of Nuevo Estilo. It's huge open layout is perfect for cottage life and would be a fantastic gathering space of lots of friends and family. The combination of rustic (reclaimed wood, stone) mixed with a leather chesterfield and plaid chair also joined with some mid-century chairs and tables - bringing such disparate pieces together really works here. However, I am baffled by all of the window treatments - massively long purple curtains (why purple? WHY??) and blinds hung way too high. AGH!! The one red, one silver light fixtures in the bathroom...bad idea. (I won't even discuss the bedding). And it is disappointing to see such a lazy approach to the ceiling and beams. Spraying it ALL white instead of leaving some of the raw wood showing, or at least the steal pieces. (Designed by Kotablue and Mercedes de las Heras)

NOVONO - apartment #1

This is the first of two projects I wanted to share with you from Berlin interior architecture firm NOVONO. Founder and director Nora von Nordenskjöld designed this apartment in Berlin with a distinctive global vibe. Swathed in rich earth tones with a mix of ethnic and mid-century furnishings, this modern residence is serene and welcoming. I love every inch of it.  

P.S. Sorry folks, due to a shortage of entries, pets on furniture should hopefully be back next week.
