Modernizing the traditional can be tricky but I think the folks of architecture and construction firm Design Platform based out of Denver, Colorado really nailed this one (I assume it’s a complete renovation of an older home). Lots of elements I am quite smitten with like the entire exterior, the yellow front door, the exposed brick, the white washed wood floor, the massive sleek kitchen, and each and every bathroom. How cool are those designs in the hex tile?!?! I’m imagining how that would have looked in my hex tiled floor from the front door through the vestibule and foyer and down into the kitchen. *insert gaping mouth here*
Here is another example of why I am such a fan of Reath Design‘s style. Frances Merrill took another Craftsman (this time a 1910 beach house) and brought home the funk! More fun wallpaper, tile, patterned fabric and vintage finds make this home soooo much fun and a total eye candy. If you ever thought about painting your old kitchen cabinets yellow, this should sell you on the idea.

I would give anything to take a vacation right now. And I think I have found the perfect spot! Los Enamorados is located in northern Ibiza, in the harbour of the little seaside town of Portinatx. This little paradise hotel consists of 9 rooms, a restaurant, beach bar and little shop (which includes some vintage finds). The decor is colourful, and rustic and sooo inviting. Oh how I would love to spend a week here!

I’m always a fan of style mixin’, and in this apartment in Gdańsk, Poland it starts with some some classic moldings, chevron hardwood floor, a clawfoot bathtub and some exposed brick. This is all modernized in bright white with added built-ins, mirrored walls (storage perhaps?), contemporary furnishings and lighting and some funky tile work. A very dynamic and stunning space designed by Anna Maria Sokołowska. (Photos: Fotomohito)
