Rooms that are incredibly stylish and profoundly functional, that’s the style mantra of New York based interior designer Amie Weitzman. This Greenwich Village home is clean lined and classic, modern and beautifully edited. A color palette of greys is accented with pale woods and rich cognac leather while layered textures increase the sense of warmth. A key to the success of the rooms are the statement art pieces adding life to the spaces.
This home is WILD! This is what you get when an architect in the 60’s designs himself a house. One of the great post-war Modern houses in London, Housden House was designed and built by architect Brian Housden for himself and his family between 1963-65. Presented to the market in beautifully original condition, this is the first time that the house has been available for sale. The concept is a clear demonstration of Housden’s understanding of pioneering European modernism, sharing many principles with the Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht and Pierre Chareau’s Maison de Verre in Paris. The façade, a mix of protruding concrete platforms and glass bricks, belies the scale of the house, which is best captured from the rear. The back of the house is almost completely glazed with glass bricks, flooding the internal space with a warm westerly light at every level. The house is in fascinatingly original condition, having been lovingly maintained by the Housden family throughout its history. You can read all of the details as this house is for sale on The Modern House (and now under offer).
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. I think I’d be very happy working at the New York offices of Comfortzone by Melody Weir.
Casa V+F by Italian firm AMOAMA Architettura is a knock-your-socks-off home located in drop-dead gorgeous Erbusco, Lomardy. The views on the outside are spectacular but so is this super fun and brightly coloured interior. So much creativity to take in. I would be quite happy to move in with everything left as-is.

Sharing some Scandinavian modern in greys and pastels to ease you into the weekend with this beauty designed by Laura Melling. Wonderfully styled and I absolutely adore that bench/storage wall. That one needs to go in the inspiration folder. So easy to achieve with a quick trip to Ikea 🙂
