I came across the portfolio of interior designer Catherine Bedel recently and was intrigued by her bold use of colour and pattern in a modern way. Here are 2 apartments she designed. The first is in Luxembourg and the second is her own apartment in Saint Germain, Paris. Both are just really graphic, eye-popping and ballsy. So I now love her. And she makes me want to grab a paint brush, a huge canvas and some black paint and make some art.
Sharing another simple, white space in Madrid because simple can be so good. This 250 m² home is in the Salamanca neighbourhood and was designed by Ricardo de la Torre. It has a cool, eclectic vibe with some mid-century and rustic elements that make it homey. I’m really digging all of the lighting here.
Close your eyes and imagine living in Paris in an apartment over your own art gallery. When I imagine such an appealing scenario this might just be what my mind’s eye sees. White and wood, amazing art matched by interesting architecture, old bones and modern minimalism, it is more like living in your own gallery immersed in the works of some of France’s best contemporary artists. 200 m² of French sophistication in the 9th arrondissement by Batiik Studio.
