I found this 4 bedroom London maisonette a while back on Foxtons real estate site, and haven’t gotten around to blogging it. Not surprising, it’s still for sale. Not an easy sell I’d say. How many people could handle these colours, or be into having slides from one floor to the next? Do you think the batman statue comes with it? I do find the floor art by Richard Wood to be pretty fun (although overkill in every room!), and OMG it has a 360 degree rotating bed (by Asmech). All of this can be yours for £4,999,999.
Jo spread the love for French interior designer Joséphine Gintzburger a few times in the past (here, here and here) and I came across another one of her projects – an eclectic apartment in Le Marais. Only in this setting could a yellow chintzy floral sofa set actually look cute. Throw in a sleek red countertop, chandeliers, a turquoise Smeg and shower right next to the bed and you’ve got another quirky Joséphine space.
Like the greenest of green ponds in the jungle sits this gorgeous pool and its pavilions. Busca Vida House by Brazilian architect André Luque sits lightly in the existing vegetation with clearly defined private and public areas contained within two white boxes whose glass walls open to allow for cross ventilation and to let in the natural light. A beautiful home, a clever design solution, stunning surrounds and a seriously sexy pool.
I love a little juxtaposition of old and new in my interiors. I’ve probably said that a thousand times. It’s that element of surprise that gets me every time. This home I found on Le Case di Elixír rocks my world. Looking at the exterior, you’d never guess what was inside. Unfortunately the photos of the interior are mainly of the kitchen area but those alone did it for me.
