Given our love for all things Parisian, particularly of the Haussmannian variety, I had to share another project by Alexandra Boussagol. This gorgeous family apartment is 185 m2 and is located in the 17th arrondissement. Bless her for leaving the exquisite moldings and chevron parquet flooring intact (I love chevron floors so much I have a chevron tattoo on my left forearm). Many modern and stone pieces were added for weight and graphic touches (the dining table is Calacatta Viola marble and the table in the dining nook is travertine, with black granite in the kitchen). Also, I love when designer’s spend the time and energy making the children’s spaces as fabulous as the rest of the home.
When a house that has been a hodgepodge of styles and rooms for many years meets a designer like David Lucido magic happens. Things were rationalised, removed, replaced but always with a respect for the buildings original features. The result is a calm oasis in the hustle of LA, sophisticated yet relaxed.

I don’t really have the words to describe how beautiful the Mallorcan farmhouse of Tatiana Baibabaeva and Tyson Strang of design team Terra Coll Home is. But I have dreamt of visiting Mallorca for many years and this is exactly what I imagine staying in. Rustic and natural and rough around the edges. Most, if not all photos by Salva López.
Living simply with things you love in a house with the history of those who have gone before. The next generation custodian. That’s what and where I’d like to be. Harbor House in South Port, Connecticut by Billy Cotton.
