In case you haven’t realised I’m enamoured by the work of Madrid-based design studio Casa Josephine. Contained within the walls of an 18th century convent Casa Alamillo is a quirky yet oh so stylish mix of classicism and 80s Italian design. Traditional with a twist … it’s my favourite design style.

A neutral nirvana, a land of milk and honey, heavenly rooms. A little too much hyperbole? I may be gushing but I love the neutral palette, the eclectic choice of furnishings, the sophistication and beauty of these rooms by Hancock Design.
Ah the stuff of dreams. An apartment in the Latin quarter with a view. Not just any view but large windows filled with the Panthéon in all its perfection. Double height living room or should I say salone or even more so library. Then there is the art, the clean lines of the furniture, the sweeping staircase, a simple yet stylish modern kitchen and did I mention those windows and the access to a small balcony? Yes it is the stuff of Parisian dreams. “Panthéon” by Hélène Van Marcke.
Why can’t I have this kitchen by Copenhagen-based KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri? (You may remember my previous post on them here.) Fabulous bespoke cabinets not to mention those black steel windows and wide plank oak floor. Love. Love. Love. While I’m at it I’ll take the office and that wine fridge under the stairs as well. There’s something so sexy about handcrafted and custom.
The exterior gives you just a hint at what treasures the interior holds. The white walls and black arched windows suggest a restrained elegance, a sophistication but the myriad of topiary balls cascading on the front garden suggests a sense of humour. Through the front door is a home full of personality and pizzazz but what else would you expect from Betsy Burnham of Los Angeles based Burnham Design? One of my favourite designers has done it again!
