Another look at Château de Fabrègues

Posted on Sun, 31 Oct 2021 by KiM

Last year I shared a glimpse of the château/farmhouse of designer Pierre Yovanovitch in Fabrègues, Provence. I came across more photos (by Julien Oppenheim and Jerome Galland) that I thought were a must-share. This home is jaw-droppingly beautiful inside and out and I don’t even know what more to say other than WHAT A DREAM!

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Dannijo Showroom New York by Stewart-Schäfer.

A designer’s pared-back home

Pared-back, carefully curated and immediately welcoming. The restrained colour palette is elevated by the layering of texture and natural materials. Timeless, elegant, comfortable. Mandeville Canyon by Caroline Irvin Davis.

A polished Polish apartment

Vintage meets contemporary, saturated colour meets bright white. Think orange and mustard and avocado hues as well as Tobia Scarpa and Mario Bellini. You could be in the 1960s or 70s. A masterful mix in this renovated Warsaw apartment by Paradowski Studio.

Earthy and modern in a California home

Posted on Thu, 28 Oct 2021 by KiM

This home is earthy, modern, somewhat minimalist and a touch bohemian and I adore it. Seen from the street, the crisp form of this home offers some compelling contrasts. The elevation is grounded by a plaster privacy wall, while the second floor floats beyond it. Slim cedar louvers break the otherwise solid, symmetrical façade, allowing a screened view through the upper level. Inside, the louvers cast linear shadows throughout the rooms and the glass-enclosed corridors. The L-shape footprint defines the outdoor spaces and a large atrium frames a beautiful ginkgo tree. Natural light pours through all spaces. The interior design was closely coordinated with the building design. Richly textured fabrics and floorcoverings counter the palette of hard plaster, metal, and glass. Custom furnishings maximize the usability of the spaces while their curving, organic forms complement the architecture. Designed by Woods + Dangaran. Photos: Joe Fletcher.
