Stripped back to its fundamentals, with honest materials and spare in its use of space this stone studio references not only the simplest finca or stone outbuilding but also the many Roman ruins that dot this area of Spain. Yes, these photos are very architectural (translated as an interior designer would have added a few more worldly comforts whereas an architect likes to photograph the essence of their design form) but the simplicity of living in this rural setting is beauty distilled. Noa studio by Tarragona-based NUA arquitectures.
A magical child’s bedroom full of wonder and whimsy by Meta Coleman. It’s a room celebrating the inhabitant’s love of nature and race cars. Maximalism with plenty of storage for containing the inevitable creative chaos. What a fabulous space for inspiring imagination and learning!

Who knew Québec slate and burnt wood could be so sexy and modern and perfect for cabin/chalet life? Chalet du Marin is another project by la Shed Architecture that has me in complete awe. Absolutely storing this one away in my inspiration folder. Particularly the photo of the plant/dog shower. OMG. Photos: Maxime Brouillet
Serenity in a white minimal space. Not sure it could be my every day cup of tea but imagine this as a weekend getaway. OH YES. This is the Barcelona apartment of interior designer Isern Serra and object designer and ceramist Valeria Vasi. A white microcement space left very open with lots of built-ins make it the perfect studio space and blank slate to display objects. Simply lovely.
