Another dreamy home in France

Posted on Thu, 25 Feb 2016 by KiM

This home is another stunner by the team of Mis’en scène 40. Tours, France is the location, and every room has something unique to offer. I can’t help but notice that every fabulous French home MUST have a Serge Mouille light fixture.

Why am I not surprised? Where else would one of the world’s leading design couples Ludovica Serafini and Roberto Palomba of Palomba Serafini Associati retreat to but a 17th century ex oil mill brimming with their own iconic pieces. Rustic sophistication at it’s finest.

Set in stone

This is about as rustic as it gets. Among stone walls and olive groves deep within the countryside of Salento, Southern Italy this 18th century home of architect Luca Zanaroli and his family is absolutely breathtaking. The simplicity of the interior draws your attention to the beauty of the architecture inside and the exterior beauty of the stone surrounded by lush vegetation. (Photos: Max Zambelli)

Chalet Vieux Valet Verbier

Posted on Tue, 2 Feb 2016 by KiM

Last week marked 9 years of this blog’s existence. It has been a long yet very fun 9 years I have to admit, but after all the hours upon hours upon HOURS of blog research it seems to take alot to REALLY get me excited about a home these days. While getting this post ready, I was so damn excited about it I wanted to crank my tunes, jump up and dance on my desk. This chalet designed by Marianne Tiegen is going on my list of top 5 favourite homes I have ever featured. It is a truly magical blend of rustic, industrial and mid-century styles….all the best rolled into one.

Stalking where I’ve been before

I’m stalking a house I’ve featured before, the Balmain House by Fox Johnston, only this time I think I like the real estate photos better. The house seems to have mellowed, grown into its modern extension. Great to see a floor plan. Link here while it lasts.
