A Greenwich Village Pied-à-terre

This apartment designed by Antonino Buzzetta is HOT STUFF! In every apartment or house there should be a cohesive thread that starts at the front door and continues to the bedroom. In the case of this Greenwich Village Pied-à-terre, the first thread was our decision to bring this apartment to modern times without loosing it 's charm and elegance. In putting the elements together for this 700 ft apartment, I paired velvet and wool with a calming color palate of blues and grays. Geometric patterns were used to visual enhance the dimensions of the space. A unique mix of vintage furnishings, lighting and art adds its distinctive flair.

Stalking in Surry Hills

I love the inner city suburbs of Sydney. Darlinghurst, Potts Point, Paddington, Redfern and the suburb that contains today's stalking victim subject, Surry Hills. You all know I love a Victorian era terrace house. I stalk enough of them here on the blog. Narrow and small, dark and dank, often difficult to live expansively in, a design challenge to update for the needs of modern living which is why I'm taken by this interesting interpretation of inside/outside, up/down living. A fab inner urban crash pad. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. The video helps explain the space much better than the photos.

The White Room

White, blanched, chalky, snowy, milky, ivory, clean, spotless, pale, light, colourless, pure, unblemished, achromatic, without hue. The White Room by Barcelona-based Italian architects CaSA is a minimalist holiday apartment in Sitges, Spain just a few steps from the beach. At just 36 sq m with 11 sq m of terrace this tiny, shiny white box was renovated on a very small budget and is now a light filled refuge, a peaceful place for introspection for its owner, a French Art historian and curator, professor at the Sorbonne University.

An apartment of curiosities

This apartment in a 1930's building belongs to a couple (and their 2 children) who are antiquarians and gallery owners in Saint-Germain, Paris. They did not expect to live here for more than a couple of years because the space is only 700 square feet but the Parisian charm has kept them there 11 years so far. Their home is outfitted with antiques and items found on the street, making it so wonderfully eclectic. Via MilK Decoration magazine, photos: Brunet Souet.

An apartment by Tavares Duayer Arquitetura

I came across this apartment by São Paulo architecture firm Tavares Duayer because BLACK, BRICK, CONCRETE, SUBWAY TILES...all of which results in a really cool industrial, masculine-vibe space. The black windows and doors are a nice touch too. The decor is well done too, but I would change out the light fixtures everywhere but the enamel kitchen pendants.
