Iconic Mexican, Spanish Colonial and vintage European. It’s a heady mix perfect for the renovation and redesign of the 18th-century stone mansion Casa Michelenao in Morelia, Mexico by Paris-based interior designer Luis Laplace. Bakery, cafe, a bar and bookstore on the ground floor with private living above. My favourite part? So hard to choose but I think I’ve fallen in love with the colonnades and courtyards.
“Across the road from Little Manly beach, this timber clad beach house was designed for clients who have a love for tropical plantation homes of yesteryear. It is adorned by rare vintage Moroccan rugs and cane collectables.”
From the vintage cane (hello pretzel chairs) to the cascading plants and fabulous staircase there is so much to love about this relaxed beachside home in Little Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches by Jase Sullivan. AND it’s only a stone’s throw to the beach!

Luxury details in a Haussmannian apartment. Isn’t that what we all crave in our dream Parisian home? Located between Place de la Concorde and the Elysée Palace, this 230m2 home has a fresh contemporary look with that oh so French style. “Faubourg Saint-Honoré” by interior architects and designers Le Berre Vevaud.
This gut renovated pre-war apartment in the West Village is a gem. Despite having high ceilings I love that it didn’t end up as an industrial loft as I think most people would be tempted to. Thumbs up to Gabriela Gargano of Grisoro Designs for keeping this timeless, clean lined, neutral and so easy on the eye. (Photos: Shade Degges)
Great old bones but this Chicago house needed an injection of character when it came time to renovate. Carefully curated vintage finds, splashes of colour and an almost Parisian flair. Sophisticated and nuanced. Hyde Park House by Jen Talbot Design.
