This Orange County family home is full of warmth and a really grounded energy. Design firm Soko Dai added alot of natural stone, wood and textural fabrics to bring an earthy, modern, minimalist vibe. Also, I’ve never seen so many gorgeous bathrooms in one home! WOW!!! (Photos: Tramp Studio)
Lauren Lothrop Caron of Studio Laloc added soooo much warmth, personality and inviting touches to this historic Capitol Hill, Seattle home that I could not love it more. Lots of vintage finds, the most beautiful custom made sofa in a unique fabric (‘Flying Ducks Velvet’ by Mulberry Home), a dining room wrapped in Willian Morris wallpaper, the prettiest pink bedroom….I could definitively move right in.
“This pied-à-terre in a 1920s building in Marylebone was replete with period details. The two-bedroom apartment is the London residence of a Los Angles based couple who wanted an elegant canvas to display their growing contemporary art collection. The residence had incredible features to work with which provided the scheme with a sense of timelessness and character, such as original mouldings and parquet flooring. We felt it was important to blur the line between being able to tell if something was original or new which allowed us to push boundaries and flex our artistic ideas.”
Elegant and chic with clean lines and a mix of bespoke, contemporary and vintage pieces. Subtle yet sexy. Marylebone Pied-à-Terre by Maddux Creative.

Former archives of the Larousse publishing house, Charles Zana’s team transformed this atypical Parisian space into a creative residence. With a garden designed by Louis Benech, the house celebrates open spaces, high ceilings, light entering from all sides and a garden becoming one with the interior. To have all of this open space complete with secluded outdoor space in Paris is an absolute dream. Another wildly eclectic, contemporary space that only Charles could dream up and meticulously execute. (Photos by Nicolas Matheus, and Ambroise Tezenas & Jacques Pépion via Yatzer)
These days I don’t often feature new build homes as those with history are more my thing but these photos of a model townhome in Markham, Ontario by Kylemore is quite spectacular. Their attention to detail (even in the photo above – check out the curves in the drywall above that stove wall) and the finishes and décor are spectacular. I’d happily move in there with a truck full of antiques and make this work.
