This was at one point Kevin Dumais‘ apartment. A Manhattan studio on the Upper East Side that is only 350 sq ft. It used to be painted butter yellow and baby blue, but Kevin had his way with it and spiffed it up into a proper gentleman’s quarters. This was several years ago mind you and I am hoping he has managed to move up. Because I frankly can’t imagine living in so little space for very long, especially since he was working from home.

White, blanched, chalky, snowy, milky, ivory, clean, spotless, pale, light, colourless, pure, unblemished, achromatic, without hue. The White Room by Barcelona-based Italian architects CaSA is a minimalist holiday apartment in Sitges, Spain just a few steps from the beach. At just 36 sq m with 11 sq m of terrace this tiny, shiny white box was renovated on a very small budget and is now a light filled refuge, a peaceful place for introspection for its owner, a French Art historian and curator, professor at the Sorbonne University.
I could not stop at just one project by London interior designer Hubert Zandberg. This pied-à-terre in Le Marais, Paris is just about the coolest little apartment I have ever seen. Once again, it is fabulously eclectic but this time a bit more theme-y, with industrial touches, and a colour palette of black, grey, white and green. So cool!!!
This space above proves Hubert is the KING of fantastic bathrooms. Another one I am totally swooning over.
Crosby Studios is at it again, this time with a very small apartment (with a name that cracked me up so I had to use it as the title) that appears to have had a fairly limited renovation budget. And once again, they managed to keep it sleek and cool and homey.
Actually I’m stalking an apartment by Smart Design Studio but in another incarnation. You’ll see the original styling of the apartment by the architect a few photos done but what is listed is another owner’s take on the space. Not quite as dramatic (or perhaps it’s the difference in photographers, the double images are from the architect’s website) this softer, whiter version still showcases the clever layout of this studio apartment in Potts Point, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.
