Appartement Saint Paul

Posted on Thu, 21 Jan 2016 by KiM

I have fallen in love with this 18th century apartment in the heart of Le Marais, Paris. Designed by interior architect Margaux Beja, it is a stunning blend of old-world and modern. With a Scandinavian feel, this space is cozy and bright. A beautiful walnut wall hides spaces like the laundry and bathroom, and a glass wall separates the bedroom from main living space allowing light to flow through. It is pretty much perfection.

Holding court

Posted on Thu, 21 Jan 2016 by midcenturyjo

It seems we have lost our design hearts on the blog to all things French like these fabulous rooms by interior designer Olivier Gampel of Les Nouveaux Décorateurs. Le “sigh”.

House Amanda

Posted on Wed, 20 Jan 2016 by KiM

For those who are into black and white with pops of colour, this house in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa is for you. House Amanda by Inhouse. The brief was to design a house that would celebrate local contemporary art and allow the owners to entertain guests frequently. The house had to accommodate a mature family and be equally livable by day and night. It was important for the house to embrace the area in which it was located, so a sensitive architectural design was one of the criteria. The house needed to embrace the exterior with its beautiful views of the Hout Bay valley and surrounding mountains.
