Built on the long, narrow site of a formed garage, this West London house is bright and light thanks to a series of courtyards and roof lights dictated by existing high boundary walls. The simple yet stylish interiors use a palette of white walls, oak floors, black framed windows and doors and cedar battens.

Have I told you how much i love a loft? The soaring ceilings, the open plan living, the industrial vibe. Add a wall of books,a scattering of colourful rugs and a fabulous collection of personal pieces and I want to move right in. Williamsburg Waterfront Loft by Space Exploration, an integrated architecture and interior design practice in New York City.
Clean lined, simple architecture with emphasis on natural materials such as wood, stone, metal, linen and cotton. The pursuit of timeless, beautiful spaces without losing functionality. That’s the manifesto of Madrid-based Estudio María Santos and this light and bright, modern apartment in the Ventas area is a perfect example.
I am envious of people who live in homes with soaring cielings with windows that seem endless. My home may have beautiful stained and leaded glass windows but they aren’t very big so I get patches of direct light in certain rooms for about a half hour each day. It is definitively a love/hate relationship. Instead I live vicariously through other people’s homes, like these with windows and doors to die for by McAlpine.
I have always had a thing for cozy seating areas like banquettes and window seats. It seems Julie Goldman of J.Latter Design and the owners of this home in New Orleans share this obsession. Happy weekend!
