What a serene, earthy, charming home this is! Located in Mallorca, this 250m2 residence is so relaxing and comfortable, and would be so pleasant to come home to after a long day at work (or as things have gone over the past year, to work from home in). Designed by Meritxell Ribé and Josep Puigdomènech of The Room Studio.
It’s an exercise in volume with the space designed as a single room without the doors or separations. It’s an exercise in public and private, a promised glimpse, a quickly barred shutter. It’s an exercise in the elegant purity of a minimal palette. Most of all it’s an exercise in fabulous French taste. Appartement Rue Etienne Marcel in Paris, France by Atelier du Pont.

Bright, warm, neutral and an organic vibe in this Barcelona home leaves me smitten. Putxet House designed by The Room Studio. We expanded the upper floors and reconfigured the spaces. This house measuring 700 m2 house in the upper area of Barcelona is large, bright, and functional. Both facades of the house were kept intact, respecting the structure’s original state and paying homage to its history. The large staircase was made on site and functions as the heart of the house. Next to it is located the courtyard, which extends vertically through the house. An industrial style was achieved without losing warmth by using natural woods combined with metals, hydraulic tiles, and microcement.
Loving the casual and warm vibe of this Newport Beach, CA home that looks a bit mid-century but reads more contemporary farmhouse. Lots of pale wood, stone, tile, marble add lots of texture and the neutral colour palette really allows these features to take centre stage. The to-die-for views are a welcome distraction. Designed by Denise Morrison.

“The Cable House transforms a small, dark workers’ cottage into a contemporary family home, finding elegant solutions to the challenges posed by the dense urban environment, narrow south-facing site and heritage context.”
Light is drawn into the space through tall windows and skylights while the sensitive roofline sits sympathetically with the neighbours. Vines trail lazily over steel cables inside and out softening the structure over time. By Tom Roberston Architects.
