When simplicity is key. I think having a minimalist summer cottage would be an amazing thing. This beauty is by Norm Architects. Scandic-Bohemian feels and barefoot luxury is found in this renovated and modernized coastal home in a quiet and secluded corner of Denmark, where Japanese zen aesthetics and danish cottage style charm come together, boasting subtle, nordic luxury and eclectic design elements.
I’m almost at a loss for words. This home in Wentworth-Nord, Québec designed by Montréal architect Alain Carle is so incredibly beautiful from the outside in. Most of the wood and stone throughout the house are reclaimed and are what really make this home special. Alongside the concrete floors, plaster walls and crittall windows, it is a winning combination. Bonus points for the dark stained wood adding in some moody drama. This is everything I love.

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. They can, though, place beautiful slabs of it throughout its interior for us to “oooh” and “aaah” over. Dark and moody meets sophisticated and chic, tailored, polished and precise. The Glasshouse by Sydney-based Nina Maya Interiors.
Italian architect and interior designer Elisa Ossino has completely captured my heart with these spaces her team has created. Our work combines geometrical abstraction, monochromes, metaphysical and surrealist references, giving rise to a coherent and allusive relationship between space, light, and objects. The projects that we create are defined by lightness and intensity, two apparently opposite concepts; we pay attention to the composition and the weight of the objects in the space with few but very strong marks, in which the objects themselves become symbols developing meanings. These rooms I selected from her portfolio are somewhat mystical and every corner is a work of art in an of itself.
I really love several design styles but modern is not typically one of them. South African interior designer John Jacob is bound to convert people like me with this black and white penthouse that is sleek, glamorous and super sexy. His attention to detail and use of bold artwork has really drawn me in.
