Inner City Blue

A loft renovation in Stockholm is stylish, relaxed and timeless, a bit like the inspiration pictures that informed the project - a brown cashmere coat, a pair of sand-colored sneakers and a plaza in Rome.

"When it was our turn to renew the the 200 square meter apartment our first step was to simplify everything we felt was too much, in terms of dimensions and materials. The task was to create a relaxed, soft environment and the main interior feature is a dark, low-lying base line that runs like a unifying horizon through the whole apartment. All walls and ceilings are painted in apricot pink and sandy beige tones which gives a soft, hazy atmosphere, creating a dynamic but gentle contrast to the blue-gray base. Nothing in the apartment is white!!"

La Micheline

It's Wednesday. Hump day. Time for a virtual getaway to the Ardennes region of Belgium, to La Micheline, an old railway station now a holiday home set amongst meadows. If the impressive renovation and rebuild using bluestone, rough hewn wood and concrete isn't enough to get your design juices running there's even an old railway line with trolleys. The gîte is the creation of architectural photographers Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux and is a sister property to La Classe which we featured here.

Not your grandmother's apartment

I am dying a slow death over this total gem of an apartment. It is EVERYTHING a Paris apartment should be. AND MORE. Featured on The Socialite Family you can catch all the juicy details there. If you're going to take over your grandmother's apartment and keep the tradition alive THIS is how you do it - by working with all of the jaw-dropping original architecture and adding in vintage mixed with iconic modern elements (with help from architect friend Samantha Hauvette). 

The Ploum sofa by the Bouroullec brothers is one of the coolest sofas of all time IMHO. 

Up there with the Ploum is the Togo. YAAASSSS!

White and wonder

Resplendent in winter white this penthouse loft in Soho by New York-based David Hotson Architect almost qualifies as a winter wonderland to this Australian-based blogger. Christmas in summer here dear readers. And what exactly is hiding in its dark, dark heart? The perfect retreat from all that wonderful white.

Marcus beach house

My concrete floor and modern architecture obsession continues with this beauty also by Owen Architecture. And I will continue to dream of living in a climate where having sliding panels that open a home to the exterior can be enjoyed more than 3 months out of the year.
