Minimalist beauty

Posted on Wed, 27 Jan 2016 by KiM

there’s something about long linen curtains puddling on concrete floors…..

there’s something about a random chair in a corner sitting on original hardwood flooring…

there’s something about an unmade bed and an almost bare wall…

Stunning. Line Klein.

I am experiencing shortness of breath, heart palpitations and excessive drooling over these glorious photos by Copenhagen-based photographer Line Klein. Not only is each space heavenly, Line has captured their beauty in the most perfect way, at the perfect angle, in perfect light.

Now if this isn’t the prettiest fiddle leaf fig I ever saw 🙂

Heaven on a terrace

I cannot think of a better place to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city than this verdant terrace. The rest of the townhouse is pretty amazing too. From the portfolio of Robert Passal.

La Micheline

Posted on Wed, 27 Jan 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s Wednesday. Hump day. Time for a virtual getaway to the Ardennes region of Belgium, to La Micheline, an old railway station now a holiday home set amongst meadows. If the impressive renovation and rebuild using bluestone, rough hewn wood and concrete isn’t enough to get your design juices running there’s even an old railway line with trolleys. The gîte is the creation of architectural photographers Anne and Jean-Luc Laloux and is a sister property to La Classe which we featured here.

Latest from Ashe + Leandro

Posted on Tue, 26 Jan 2016 by KiM

I have been a huge fan of New York architecture & interior design firm Ashe + Leandro for years (see here and here for the last couple of features) so I thought it time for an update. Here are a couple of their latest projects. I love that they share my obsession of brass fixtures (that kitchen below is so cute!) and that they really just do their own thing, and aren’t all about trends. (Photos: Fran Parente)
