A century old loft in Barcelona

Posted on Sun, 29 Nov 2015 by KiM

Before I head off to a full day helping my dear husband with his Daff Design booth at the Idle Hands Art, Craft and Vintage Sale where I plan to get all of my Christmas shopping done, I thought I would share this glorious century old loft in Barcelona. Once belonging to the current owners’ grandparents, the space was renovated and as much of the original detail restored while modernizing where possible. The kitchen is a fantastic, and the vaulted brick ceiling is such a beautiful reminder of the structure’s history. Eclectic furnishings (including a worn leather chesterfield *GASP*) and black elements elevate the coolness factor. Via Nuevo Estilo. Decor: Luzio. Photos: Montse Garriga.

Linen love

Posted on Thu, 12 Nov 2015 by midcenturyjo

Love a linen slip-covered sofa… or an armchair… and a warehouse setting… or a sandstone and glass walled living area… or a funky inner-city pad… and maybe in blush pink. Found via MCM House.

An apartment in Paris…

…or is it?

Israel-based Ando Studio designed this apartment in Saint Germain, Paris last year. The team of architects, interior designers and CG artists specialize in 3D renderings. So this apartment is….or isn’t…. Although either way it is freaking fantastic!

Suzy Hoodless encore

New work from one of my all time favourite designers, Suzy Hoodless. Working in collaboration with architects Hackett Holland, this 5 storey townhouse in Notting Hill is simply sublime. Graphic, playful yet sophisticated, stylish.

A townhouse in the West Village

Posted on Thu, 22 Oct 2015 by KiM

My New York townhouse spree has not stopped. This West Village home that was completed a few years ago by BWArchitects is fan-freaking-tastic! Located in historic Greenwich Village, this extensive reconstruction of a 1840s townhouse fuses past and present into a new, sophisticated 4,000 square foot home. Striking a balance between historic and modern guides all aspects of design in this reinvigorated Greek Revival townhouse. Steel and glass windows line the basement and parlor floors’ South facades, drawing in natural light and air from the garden. Daylight is also funneled through the home via a skylight-topped 4- story open staircase. Industrial details of structural steel and an exposed manually-geared hardware operate a pivoting glass and steel Penthouse wall. Interior design by Poonam Khanna.
