Connecting with nature out in the country, with nothing but fields and trees and wildlife as far as the eye can see is just what I could use right about now while stuck at home. How peaceful living here must be, especially at a time like this. This is the home of interior stylist Adeline Maillet and her family, in Lyon, France design by architects Stéphanie and Damien Gallet. Via The Socialite Family.

A lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend. It doesn’t feel right. So many of us have lost our jobs. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead.

Allison Crawford did a fabulous job designing this downtown Austin, Texas industrial loft to create a masculine and comfortable space despite it being wrapped in concrete. Hip yet totally functional with some pretty sweet views! (Styling and photos by Alyssa Rosenheck for MyDomaine)
More neutral and modern from Arthur Casas in this 375 m2 New York townhouse. In an elegant prewar building standing five stories tall, just a few steps from central park, this ground floor apartment called for extensive renovations. The aim of the design was to illuminate the interiors and re-create environments, eliminating dividers and lending a visual unity to the apartment. We imagined the living room, with its 6 m ceilings, as the central space in the house. It connects the apartment’s three levels via a staircase that goes from the basement—transformed into a guest suite and laundry area—to the walkway on the upper level, which leads to the children’s bedroom. The garden is separated from the living room by large glass doors that slide into the walls, integrating interior and exterior spaces. Sober, neutral tones; simple gestures; integrated spaces; and furnishings that cover much of the best in 20th-century american design—with works by icons such as george nakashima, peter lane, and edward wormley, among others—are all key points in the design.
