It’s what happens when minimalism meets material honesty, craftsmanship meets everyday life and austerity meets beauty. It’s rustic, restrained, one should say pared back but always a delight to the eye. Pina House by Barcelona-based Francesc Rifé Studio.
Minimal, sleek, modern, neutral, simple. la SHED Architecture is one of my favourite architecture firms. They take the beauty of the Canadian landscape, and showcase it with clean, simple designs that blur the lines of interior and exterior regardless of the season. This home on Lac Saint-Pierre in Trois-Rivières, Québec is simply beautiful.
Villa Castelluccio is a restored villa located in the heart of Puglia, Italy, set within 5 acres of olive groves. Designer Andrew Trotter was brought on to assist with renovations and interior design of this beautiful home which is available as a rental vacation property. Sign me up!!! This would be such a relaxing, calming space to spend time in, while enjoying the traditional Puglian architecture.

An uncomplicated retreat and relaxation space at the end of the garden. Just living, dining and yoga areas. Minimalist lines with a design riff of contrast. Light and dark, open and closed, public and private. Simple beauty by General Assembly.

I am smitten with the designs of Belgian architect Pieter Vandenhout. Minimal in details but the details he does add (like statement windows and textured walls and wide plank floors) make such a statement. The kitchen below went straight into my inspiration folder. A kitchen that doesn’t look like a kitchen is everything.
