At Rebecca’s

From soaring ceilings and flooding light in a  three level Parisian atelier to a small, cocoon like apartment in the 18th Arrondissement.

“Inspired by the Mediterranean, the theatrical architecture of this apartment is emphasized by natural materials: travertine, tadelakt and concrete. The alcove creates a bubble of softness and the pink waxed concrete floor soothes and sets the tone.”

At Amélie’s

When Batiik Studio transformed an old workshop in the 9th Arrondissement into a chic Parisian apartment the emphasis was on soaring ceilings and light circulating throughout the space. A neutral colour palette is matched with natural materials while a stunning gallery wall of art climbs the stairs in this warm and inviting three level home.

Light and airy elegance in Madrid

Posted on Mon, 27 Jan 2020 by midcenturyjo

A cool oasis, a retreat from the heat and bustle of the Madrid calles. Filtered light through floaty fabric, coffered ceilings and archways washed in white. Monochrome splashed with rich oriental blue. Sophisticated and welcoming. Conde de Aranda by Madrid-based Estudio Maria Santos.

I thought nothing could be better than a genteel country house by Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada. That is until I realised you could have a genteel country house with a flower room. Room crush!

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it better be somewhere stylish. Ya Vsesvit, an architectural studio, showroom and 80 seat lecture room for events in Kiev by Yakusha Design Studio.
