Built in 1830 in the Mexican town of Xucu, Yucatán, this somewhat derelict structure became abandoned in the 1970s and was brought back to life by French designer Emmanuel Picault. Becoming one with the surrounded landscape, it has a story to tell and a new lifetime of memories to make. Via MilK Decoration, photos by Michael DePasquale + Martina Maffini
I’m almost at a loss for words. This home in Wentworth-Nord, Québec designed by Montréal architect Alain Carle is so incredibly beautiful from the outside in. Most of the wood and stone throughout the house are reclaimed and are what really make this home special. Alongside the concrete floors, plaster walls and crittall windows, it is a winning combination. Bonus points for the dark stained wood adding in some moody drama. This is everything I love.

People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. They can, though, place beautiful slabs of it throughout its interior for us to “oooh” and “aaah” over. Dark and moody meets sophisticated and chic, tailored, polished and precise. The Glasshouse by Sydney-based Nina Maya Interiors.
The perfect marriage of sophistication and rustic style, of old and new, humble object and high end statement piece. Stone and straw play against the gloss of lacquer and hints of gold. While the dichotomy provides the drama in this Mediterranean Townhouse by Spanish designer Serge Castella, the contrast is more curated than clashing. Imagine living surrounded by such beautiful things.
It’s a quintessential English country house but with a modern twist. The renovation of this 18th century home in Oxfordshire by Louise Holt Interior Design has resulted in a light-filled family home with all the mod cons while retaining period features such as the beams and inglenook fireplace. The best of both worlds.
