Casa Areca

Posted on Wed, 14 Jul 2021 by KiM

I had to share one more spectacular retreat designed by CO-LAB. This one is a touch less modern and a tad more bohemian and earthy. Tucked into a lush landscape of Areca Palms, Casa Areca was carefully positioned on a narrow lot to preserve existing trees and palms. Designed as a vacation home, Casa Areca, features 4 en-suite bedrooms on the 1st floor – allowing for an open ground floor plan. The kitchen, dining and living room are spatially integrated and open to the exterior through retractable and or pivoting floor to ceiling glass doors. A wrap-around deck frames the pool and private gardens. Built from CMU blocks and reinforced concrete the walls of the house are finished with white polished cement techniques. Light grey polished cement floors complement the walls to create a soft color pallet to better contrast the bespoke furnishings designed by CO-LAB and built with Yucatan artisans. An abundance of windows carefully oriented to capture prevailing breezes, keep the house cool and fresh throughout the year, creating a peaceful atmosphere optimal for unwinding after a beach day. Architecture + Construction + Interiors + Landscaping: CO-LAB (Photos: Cesar Bejar)

A gut-renovated home in LA

Posted on Wed, 16 Jun 2021 by KiM

Here is another project by Josh Greene I wanted to share with you. This old-school west L.A. style home in Brentwood, California was gut renovated for a young family. It too is a slam dunk, but this time the colour palette is much more neutral and the overall vibe is more casual and bohemian. (Photos: Shade Degges)

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Lifehood by Romanel Design Studio.

This modern beach house in East Hampton is tons of fun. Loaded with tropical colours and wallpaper, it is coastal vacationing with a chic, graphic twist. Such uplifting energy in these spaces. Designed by Ghislaine Viñas. (Photos: Jaime Viñas & Mick Hales)

Weekend getaway lodges in Texas

Posted on Fri, 21 May 2021 by KiM

Paloma Ranch consists of twin hunting lodges for a pair of brothers on a seventeen-thousand-acre spread in the south of Texas. (For those who find taxidermy offensive, please skip this post). These photos are from each lodge, designed by Emily Seiders (married to another of the brothers). A comfortable + casual, bohemian + southwestern, modern + organic mélange that doesn’t distract from the beauty of the landscape.
