An exceptionally unique Paris apartment

Posted on Wed, 14 Oct 2020 by KiM

Someone once left a comment on a post about a Paris apartment: If life were at all fair, we would all have an apartment in Paris at some point in our lives. That post happened to be designed by Italian designer Fabrizio Casiraghi. This one is one of his latest projects in the 7th arrondissement, with architectural details that will blow you away. And I go back to that comment, with the belief that nothing could be more truthful. How is it fair that something this stunning even exists? With classical details and a vibrant yet not overdone and very unique colour palette, this is a dream. (Photos: Cerruti Draime)

I came across the portfolio of award-winning landscape architecture firm Ground Studio based in Monterey, California and found a plethora of outdoor inspiration that is once again making me dream of warm climates and winter-less seasons. I’ll take one of each please!

Colourful and quirky, perhaps one could say eccentric. Packed with personality, wit and wonky walls and it’s for sale. The Modern House has all the best properties on its books. A charming Grade II-listed 16th century cottage positioned on Bell Street in Henley-on-Thames. loving brought back to life by The Curious House.

The prestigious A’ Design Award & Competition is ongoing for the 2020-2021 season and with over 100 categories the A’ Design Award & Competition is the worlds’ largest design competition. But it is not just an award. It is an indicator of quality and perfection in design, recognized worldwide, your design front and centre before design companies and professionals. Entries will be judged by an international jury panel of scholars, professionals and media members and the benefits to the winners are inspiring. The trophy, of course, an invitation to the gala night, a certificate of quality, inclusion in the prestigious A’ Design Award & Competition exhibition and the yearly ResultBook but even more importantly press, PR, introduction to industry professionals and companies and international exposure. There is still time to get entries in. You can register here.

Today I thought I would share some of the top winners in the Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design category (one of MANY categories that are included).

A’ Design Award & Competition is organized and awarded annually and internationally in a wide range of categories not just Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design but you know how much we love a great piece of furniture here on Desire to Inspire. You can see all the other winners here and if you’d like to register for 2020-2021 you can still do so here.
