While paying respect to the original Tudo- style house, this renovation takes a thoroughly modern approach. The result is a casual luxury, perfect for its beach side location. White, nude and grey tones reference the bleached coastal palette while materials evoke a warm and relaxed elegance.

This Edinburgh flat with its elegant Georgian lines is no shrinking violet. What could have been restrained and dare I say plain is instead alive with colour and pattern. Grey walls anchor the scheme allowing the designer Jessica Buckley to create a space that reflects the owners personality and style. The repeated use of pink and yellow must be so uplifting on a dreary Scottish day. Another great example of traditional with a twist.
An old plaster moulding shop on the ground floor of an early 20th century building in Barcelona was dark and derelict until architectural firm Valentí Albareda created a magical light filled home with central courtyard and a distinct modern flavour inside its rustic exposed brick walls. Love the almost sculptural feel to elements such as the staircase and shelving.
