It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Beauty Block by Melbourne-based Bergman & Co.
Scandinavian, modern, minimalist vibes are evident throughout this Haussmannian apartment in Paris that was completely renovated by Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann of architecture firm Heju. They preserved as many original details as possible, and moved the kitchen such that it became the central gathering spot. The pink marble countertop is beautifully subtle and I adore the added curve in the island which is then mimicked in the cabinet hardware and light fixture.
Bathrooms need not be mundane. London-based Boundary Space has designed these colourful (all be it extravagant) bathrooms to put a smile on your face. Think glamour, luxury and decadence in pink and green.
I am curious… if you purchased a very old home with loads of character, complete with peeling wallpaper, peeling paint, original doors and windows etc…..how much would you want to keep vs salvage and live with? Kudos to the owners of this home in Pau, France (Lisa and Julien Ménard and their 5 kids) for maintaining much of the period details. Stripping it of its history would have been cruel.

I really appreciate designers who set out to create wow moments in their designs. In the case of Chad Dorsey and “the listening room” it’s this sumptuous deep red/burgundy wall colour with matching furniture (Ginger Snap by C2 Paint). In his “covid nights” bar area it’s another punchy colour enveloping everything but the floor. Birds in a ceiling alcove, and a massive brass hood with royal blue stove in an all white kitchen are just a couple more from his portfolio. WOW indeed!!!
