The design of this São Paulo home by Pascali Semerdjian is about simplicity, comfort and a desire to stimulate social interactions. It maximizes light, comfort, ventilation and the outdoors. One creative feature to note is how the brick facade appears to decompose near the roofline. I am also a fan of the beautiful reclaimed wood floor and the lush backyard garden.
This industrial loft-y home in Montreal’s Mount Royal neighbourhood is the home and workspace of architect Natalie Dionne and her family. It’s brilliant U-shaped design allows the urban environment to be blocked off and for the outdoors to be enjoyed in peace. I love courtyards!! And with lots of sliding and garage-style doors, it brings the outside right in. In this climate, this is a unique feature that makes this a really special home.
Oh how I love some loft eye candy! This one by Chicago interior designer Anthony Michael is really eclectic and a whole lot of fun. A distinctive global vibe is evident throughout this glorious loft which adds a lot of warmth to the mostly-exposed-brick space, and painting some of the brick out in white makes it brighter and less industrial. Even the motorcycle parked within the loft works 🙂 (More of his work here and here)

Still no internet at home. Still relying on my phone. Still making spelling mistdkes because of my fat fingers. Still in love with everything that Workstead designs. Woven rattan … swoon.
