Mauricio Arruda

Maurício Arruda is a Brazilian architect/designer whose funky, retro apartment was featured here last year. I stumbled upon his website recently and this apartment caught my eye. (The project is from a collective called WHYDESIGN, whose members are Mauricio Arruda, Guto Requena and Tatiana Sakurai). LOVE the gray wall colour. LOVE the forest mural (I have one too!). LOVE the Pierre Paulin Little Tulip chairs. LOVE the rosewood cabinetry. LOVE the graphic wallpapers. LOVE the built-in workspace. Photos by Marcelo Magnani.

A collector's paradise

I saw this home belonging to Greek collector Alketas Pazis on Yatzer and HAD to share. If I was fortunate enough to set foot in this home you'd very likely have to pick me up off the floor because I would have passed out from SHEER JOY AND BLISS. And then a couple of hours later after I had examined every single inch of this space you'd have to drag me out kicking and screaming. FAB U LOUS.

Glass house

Dreaming of a glass box overlooking water. Anchored by stone and garden. Filled with mid century treasure and art. White and bright. Restrained and curated but bold in its transparency. Strong and fragile. Dream come true. Fishers Island House by New York architects Thomas Pfifer and Partners.

Aaron Hom encore

We love a good stylist on DTI but Aaron Hom isn't a good stylist. Just joking. Aaron Hom is a great stylist. Jo has shared his work before (here and here) but when I stumbled on his website again this week there were even more fabulous photos. I can't think of a better way to end a less than wonderful week than with the  more than wonderful styling of Aaron Hom. Is it just me or is anyone else really loving the midcentury classics in so many of these? Platner chairs anyone?

Darren Brown and mid-century modern

Breathing life back into mid-century marvels. Putting the glitz back into the perfect Palm Springs bachelor pad. From his intial work with Jonathan Adler on the Parker in Palm Springs to work on a William Cody designed Palm Springs home, Frank Sinatra's pad in the same town and John Lautner's Garcia Rainbow house in L.A. New York based decorator Darren Brown worships at the altar of high mid-century camp. A mix of high end and Palm Springs thrift. (Obviously nothing wrong with Palm Springs thrift!) It's hep, it's hot, it's fun and it makes me swoon for mid-century madness all over again.
