All I need are a few books, some tunes, a handful of cats, lots of wine, and I’ll see you in October! Villa Rauhanniemi located in Karjalohja, Finland, is an ideal spot to escape for the summer months. Designed by Joanna Laajisto.
A little vacation to a cottage as beautiful and soothing and easy on the eye as this one would be a dream. This neutral stone & thatched roof cottage in The Cotswolds is all wood and white and sisal and stone and wicker and linen/cotton….it’s heaven. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.

Small space big style. If you need a little pied-à-terre (or let’s face it with increasing housing costs in capital cities across the globe perhaps a permanent base) this little studio space in Paris may just be the stylish solution for you. Bastille by Intérieurs de Collection.

Brian Paquette is a favourite designer of ours and we’ve featured his work on here many times in the past. I found out recently that he launched his first book last month which I’m excited to get my hands on. And with that, I am sharing some of his recent spaces because they are always classic, and so very easy on the eye.
This Los Angeles Tudor home has a dramatic light and dark situation going on, with most of the spaces having a nordic/scandi pale wood and lots of white and neutrals going on, and then the kitchen takes a 180 degree turn and has several black elements. I love that unexpected pairing, especially when most people would go white in a kitchen (BORING!). Another fab space designed by Freudenberger Design Studio.
