Casa Mina

Posted on Fri, 30 Jul 2021 by KiM

I had to share another magical project by the talented team of Quintana Partners – Casa Mina in Mahón, Menorca. Their attention to detail and the methods they introduce in their designs that pay homage to the history and patina of the original structure and architectural details is really incredible and I have much respect for their philosophy.

A Tribeca penthouse

This Tribeca penthouse is a wash of white and so soothing, modern and fairly minimal when the world outside is anything but. Though I might have been tempted to paint the window trim black, I think going all white just adds to the serenity. Designed by Ashlie Broderic. (Photos: Richard R Allan)

Colour vs white and grey

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.

Bauhaus villa 1936

Posted on Wed, 28 Jul 2021 by KiM

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 WoodmakerWoodeffect)

Casa Jumanji

Posted on Mon, 26 Jul 2021 by KiM

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.
