Beautiful Riad

A chill wind is whistling around my house, tugging on windows and licking under doors. I'm cold and miserable and need a little lift. Time for a virtual getaway. Ah Morocco can you get anymore perfect? Sunshine sliding down smooth plaster walls, dappled shadows on plunge pools, mid century classics mixed with medina finds. A beautiful escape to the Beautiful Riad Marrakesh.

A renovated 1940's home in Seattle

When unexpected styles collide. A fabulous home designed by Seattle-based Brio Interior Design. A 1940's home where the client's mother spent her teenage years was purchased from the grandfather's estate shortly after his passing. The purchase and renovation were a way to reinvent history by making an old home new again for the young family who decided the house carried too many precious memories to be sold to the next highest bidder. Perched atop a generously sized waterfront lot in north Seattle with panoramic views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Peninsula and Olympic mountain range, the aesthetic of the home is classic meets modern and eclectic. It's fun, colorful and whimsical. Perfect for a family that dines most days together in a formal dining room around a table that family members have gathered at for decades to celebrate the best things in life.

Mid-century modern in the English countryside

A whole pile of mid-centry modern/retro fabulousness to end off the work week. Surrounded by beautiful English countryside, this vast new-build features floor-to-ceiling windows which highlight the stunning rural location. The sensation of bringing the outside in is further emphasised through the open-plan layout which flows seamlessly from room to room, offering the perfect space for socialising. Teeming with unexpected details at every turn, iconic pieces such as an Eero Saarinen table and Warren Platner chair elevate the space from ordinary to extraordinary. A unique sunken lounge exquisitely framed by a statement pendant and futuristic basement bar with a cinema and music room offer areas for both formal and informal entertaining in this inviting country home. By London-based architectural interior design studio Oliver Burns

Mid century kitchen love

Recently I've been seduced by English country-style kitchens but every so often I return to my first love. This bright white modern kitchen has more than enough mid century to make me smile. From the Marina Residence in Huntington Harbor, California, a mid century remodel by Jette Creative.

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.
