A narrative of scale and tactility, of tradition and family life, artefacts and generous living. Pared back yet aesthetically layered. A former ballet school turned townhouse in the heart of The Hague brought to life by Avenue Design Studio.
“Conceptually we wanted to keep the space free from ‘visual stress’ and we embarked on a journey to use materiality and tactility to create unique detailing which is not always noticed at first but can often be felt before it is seen. The kitchen is a beautiful example of this with the marble ‘live edge’ shelving, handmade walnut handles and brass details in the breakfast bar. The coffee station further removes clutter by hiding most of the kitchen equipment.”
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. Kiln at Ace Hotel Sydney by Fiona Lynch.

A traditional finca and the masterly touch of Swiss architect and designer Valérie Chomarat has resulted in a sensuous minimalism where tradition meets modern with a restrained line, form and palette.
When I stumbled upon this majestic home for sale in a small town in the south of France called Cintegabelle, my heart skipped a beat. This is what I have been dreaming about for many years. A home that is historic, with modern touches throughout where the 2 blend so beautifully and effortlessly. Add in an orangerie with massive columns, the beautifully landscaped grounds and access to a river and it quite literally my idea of heaven. Listing via Selection Habitat.
