A French apartment

Posted on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 by KiM

This apartment in Lyon is so gorgeous and subtly elegant. Maison Hand nails Parisian chic each and every time. Neutral palette, luxurious linens, modern classic French furnishings…everything comes together so perfectly. (Previous features here, here and here).

David Tsay update

Posted on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 by KiM

Photographer David Tsay continues to amaze me with his photographs that are so lively and bright (we also featured his work here and here). They remind me of summer – which at this rate us Ottawans are never going to see this year. (Does anyone else wish they had a bright yellow front door?)
P.S. Sorry folks looking for Monday’s pets on furniture – there we not enough entries this week for a post. Hopefully it will be back next week.

Natasi Vail Design

Posted on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 by midcenturyjo

The soaring ceiling in this two bedroom duplex in a converted 19th century schoolhouse in Cobble Hill, New York lifts this otherwise small space to another level. Natasi Vail Design has exploited the height during their renovation of the space with clever built ins to maximise storage and provide architectural detail. Splashes of blue and pink play against white walls while a gallery hang of small art pieces accentuates the height. The original kitchen has a low ceiling height but by removing upper cabinets and replacing them with open shelves the space appears more open. An awkward apartment soars to new heights

Summer gelati

Posted on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 by midcenturyjo

A room that is a promise of summer to come. With zest and zing and joyful squeals of colour. Like scoops of fruit gelati on a hot day this wonderful bedroom, or should that be boudoir, is just the antidote to long, lingering winters. By interior designer Robert Passal.

Casa dos Outros

Posted on Sun, 30 Mar 2014 by KiM

I stumbled upon a really cool Tumblr site (via casa.com.br) yesterday that I wanted to share. Casa dos Outros (House of Others) features many homes of “regular” folks around São Paulo, Brazil. It’s similar to The Selby and Freunde von Freunden. Here is a selection of some really fun spaces I spotted there.
