Back in 2017 Jo shared some spaces that were done in rich yet muted colours by Belgian designer Natalie Haegeman. I was perusing her portfolio and was mesmerized by both her colourful and neutral spaces and wanted to share some more of her work here. So moody with lots of antiques and textures and patinas. Brilliant.

It has been a little while since we shared a project by Polish design firm Loft Kolasiński. Bauhaus Villa 1936 is a 250m2 home located in the town of Konstancin-Jeziorna. The firm, who was responsible for interior design, parts of furniture, stairs, fireplace, interior woodwork, renovation of vintage furniture and accessories, turned this home into a modern, book lover’s dream with such incredible attention to detail as I have come to expect from them. I love the repetition of circles throughout the home – so fun! (Photos: Joel Hauck, furniture made by Woodmaker, Woodeffect)
“An addition to an existing garage, this loft space was designed to create a backyard artist retreat for the homeowner. Though the footprint may be small, the design pulls out all the stops. We like to think of our design as the more lighthearted, well travelled, slightly bohemian sister of the primary residence. With built-in planters, an oversized pitched skylight and unique detailing throughout, this retreat will allow our clients creativity to flow.”
I dream of a artist retreat in my backyard but my dreams have never reached these lofty heights (pardon the pun). If this is the garage extension I wonder how amazing the house is. Park Hill Loft by Calgary-based Fort Architecture.

Old and new. Soft and subdued in private areas, luxe and dramatic in public spaces. Antique and bespoke with an emphasis on ongoing patina of materials and the pattern of stone. Carefully curated and but playful. John Street by Sydney-based Phoebe Nicol.
I am head over heels in love with this home designed by Barcelona & Menorca based design firm Quintana Partners. If I ever had the opportunity to move to a city with such beautiful, centuries-old architecture I would want to experience it just like this. Jumanji’s main reference is the Bauhaus school, which dates back to Germany in 1919 and was very famous during the 20’s, for its modernity and rational ideology. What we wanted with this residence is that the client feels like in the family house inherited from his grandparents, keeping the original furniture of that time. It is a tribute to the owner of the house, who is German, and with this renovation we wanted to move his roots to Menorca with the Quintana’s merger.
