Copenhagen based studio File Under Pop specializes in surface design. Directed by Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer, they transform rooms by clothing walls, floors and ceilings with handmade tiles from clay and lava stone, hand painted wallpaper and exclusive paint. All of their products are processed entirely by hand, combining antique craftsmanship with modern technology, resulting in characteristic and unique surfaces and finishes. Texture and colors are the keywords of File Under Pop. And the results are so beautiful I had to share.
Many of you have likely seen this to-die-for SoHo loft already, when it was owned by actress Meg Ryan and featured in Architectural Digest, but I had to share and give you a second look because it is has a Parisian vibe I live for and is designed by one of the best – Monique Gibson. A prime example of how mostly black and white can work so sooooooo well. And why subway and hex tiles will always be at the top of my list.

This Beachwood Canyon, Los Angeles home was built in 1963. The 60’s were a really happening time with respect to architecture and it is such a shame when the homes from that era are replaced with new builds or renovated beyond recognition. Reath Design kept it real in this mid-century home and that is why I love this firm so much. They did not paint the brick. Nor the wood clad walls. They even remodelled the kitchen and it is 1960’s awesomeness. A home I would LOVE to own. AS IS.
