After having watched the dearly departed Anthony Bourdain’s Layover episode in Paris while eating dinner last night, and seeing such a beautiful space like this apartment in le Jardin des Tuileries, I could totally see myself living it up in that incredibly unique city. (And I speak French!) L’Appartment Parisien did a wonderful job adding some understated elegance here. And that multi-coloured set of Gubi beetle chairs has me totally sold.
From sophisticated soiree to lavish luncheon, majestic wedding to intimate celebration South African events designer Otto de Jager and his team at Otto de Jager Events create magic, transforming empty spaces into temporary wonderlands but it’s deJager’s more permanent creations that have caught my eye. I’ve chosen just two of his interior designs (the second is his own home) to share. Both rich with natural finds, aged timbers and a sense of theatre. After all he is in the business of staging extravagant events.
“Located in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, this interior and landscape project to a 1930s weatherboard and rock house offers a careful manipulation of dark and light to suit the particular needs of a writer with a predilection for darkness and exploit the site’s broad established garden outlook.”
Melbourne-based architecture and interior design practice Freadman White have taken a confused warren of rooms and created a home that moves seamlessly from cave like living room to light and bright open plan kitchen dining. Bedrooms with their ensuite bathrooms continue to play with the idea of light versus dark. The result is a modern remake of a dated farmhouse.
When simplicity is key. I think having a minimalist summer cottage would be an amazing thing. This beauty is by Norm Architects. Scandic-Bohemian feels and barefoot luxury is found in this renovated and modernized coastal home in a quiet and secluded corner of Denmark, where Japanese zen aesthetics and danish cottage style charm come together, boasting subtle, nordic luxury and eclectic design elements.
Once again Jean Stoffer Design shows her love of blue in this beautiful Michigan home. Alongside the blue, brass accents really glam things up and WHOA her tile choices are spot on here. And the exterior is absolutely gorgeous too as a bonus. All of the black detail really modernizes it.
