In a small part of the Empordà paradise is Mas Pla de Calabuig, a place of 5 hectares of peace, of exquisite decoration full of details and with a unique Mediterranean garden. Three houses and a studio, a total of 700m2 and with a particular style each but with the harmony of the whole. Let yourself be seduced by every corner you find. A unique Mediterranean vegetable space, with a central garden with a saltwater pool and a pergola covered in natural shade. Enjoy the garden with seasonal organic products.

Do nothing? In a place like this? SIGN ME UP!!!
I stumbled upon the San Miguel de Allende home of Jorge Almada and A-M Midy of casamidy as part of a series of properties they own and offer for weekly rentals. Lord have mercy sign me up for a week or 2 here! I still yearn to visit San Miguel one day and this property represents all the good things about that beautiful city – views, character, gorgeous architectural details, unique design, and inviting outdoor spaces.
“Intoxicating and serene, the ’70s Rêve is a glam rock riff on the sultry vibes and breezy bliss of bohemian life. Restored and reconceived, this lush estate in Ross, California, exudes a balmy calm with a sexy swagger. Earthy and sumptuous, playfully plush, it teems with the effervescent cool of a YSL muse—both ageless and of the moment.”
If that’s the way Alexis Tompkins and Leann Conquer, the design duo behind San Francisco-based Chroma describe this house then anything I can add is just useless verbiage. Crazy perfect!

I love this story…
Miss Rose contacted me from Philadelphia in the midst of pandemic to ask if I would be willing to make her a pied à terre in the Marais. An American who had fallen in love with France, she dreamed of being able to offer herself a refuge in Paris. In this particular health context, the urgency to live her dreams took precedence. The flat was bought from a distance and we worked together on the project by skype. It was a great way to escape from everyday life by defying the prohibitions, to meet around a project that offered us a beautiful escapade in the imagination. Miss Rose has that quiet determination that breaks down all obstacles; that confidence and emotional generosity that carries you along. She knew even before she bought the flat that I was going to make her nest and she accompanied us throughout the project with a patience and enthusiasm that made this adventure an exceptional moment…

Loving the modern and tropical, Spanish finca-esque vibes of this renovated 1970s home in the South of France. Another stellar project by the talented Baptiste Bohu.
