I continue to crush on the fabulous Parisian apartments the ladies of Desjeux Delaye have designed. I continue to adore the details and the drama and the addition of colour. This dining room (though I’m unsure why it has a sink) is killer! LOVE that shelving! And the mirror!
Stylish black and white living in California with a hint of the 70s but definitely of the current design moment. Artisanal and organic, zen like and beautiful in its simplicity. Carmel Valley Residence by integrated design studio Salt + Bones.

Love the vibe in this home designed by L.A. based designer Barbie Palomino. Some dark paint choices make it moody, with furnishings that give it a groovy, mid-century feel. I dig all of this.
I could not love this Paris apartment more. Seriously spectacular detail. By Studio Razavi Architecture.
Before Baron Haussmann started gutting Paris under Napoleon the 3rd, a wave of modernization had started in the center of Paris where new buildings had gone up according to a different set of rules which would ultimately lead to what is known as the Haussmannian type. This apartment is located in such building and its decorative influence (both on the facade and inside apartments) bares a Greek influence, rather than Neoclassical, which would be generalized for later buildings.
As in most apartment renovations in older buildings, the layout was radically modified as the kitchen was brought right next to the front entrance and left as an open space and a master suite was created where the kitchen was formerly located. We undertook heavy restoration of original features (more specifically a remarkable wood floor) and created a smooth transition with remodeled areas so as to preserve the feel of an early 19th century apartment. Whenever possible, contemporary elements were introduced which, in combination with the furniture selection, create a lively and modern interior.
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.
