Oh, how I wish I could spend my Sunday in Paris’ Pigalle neighbourhood, enjoying a delicious meal at Pink Mamma. Designed by MBDS, this bar/restaurant is beautiful from the pink tiled exterior to the plant filled interior, including a rooftop garden. (photos: James McDonald unless otherwise noted)
I can’t think of anything I’d like to do than potter around my garden on a weekend and at the end of all my landscape labours to sit, drink in hand, surveying my little kingdom. Now if only I had an inner city oasis like this one. Morocco meets Sydney by Garden Life.
It’s all about a modern elegant style. Strong and confident, easy going but chic. Light pours in through large windows or doors that can be flung open to the outdoors. Exquisite finishes, attention to detail, clean lined yet devoted to comfort and easy living. A timeless sanctuary in Brentwood by MLK Studio.
What is it about the mix of rustic simplicity and elegant living that is so appealing? Think stone, white washed walls and old wooden beams as the stage for an enviable collection of art and furniture, objet d’art and curiosities. Pops of bright colour energise the scheme and though everything is beautiful nothing is “precious”. Casa Mallorca by Spanish interior designer Ramón García Jurado.
Elena Frampton and her architecture, design and art advisement team at Frampton Co typically bring on the funk in their boldly graphic, highly artful spaces but this Bridgehampton estate is not that. And I love it just as much as say, this project, or this one. It’s modern farmhouse style with a calming, neutral colour scheme and art to coexist harmoniously.
