The Victorian home in Larchmont, New York is just beaming with personality! Sooooo much colour and pattern and an energy that is truly unmatched. Also, it basically has 3 kitchens so I am head over heels in love with this home. Designed by Robin Henry Studio, photos by Eric Piasecki.

This apartment in Warsaw designed by Finchstudio is so incredibly warm with shades of green, yellow and brown. The cohesion with using some repetitive colours and tiles in more than one room really makes the spaces flow. Now THIS is how you design a small space right! Photos: Aleksandra Dermont

Casa Alamillo 2

The Madrid apartment of Iñigo Aragón and Pablo López Navarro of design studio Casa Josephine is, as Jo commented in this post on a past project of theirs (I think located in the same building), ‘quirky yet oh so stylish mix of classicism and 80s Italian design‘. This one is perhaps leaning a bit more on the global/ethnic side but I am here for it! These designers have such a unique eye. Photos: Pablo Zamora

A two story penthouse in Paris

Posted on Tue, 7 Nov 2023 by KiM

Once in a blue moon an apartment directly overlooking the prestigious Parc Monceau comes on the market! The Parc Monceau clients jumped on the occasion, even if they had to trade in their spacious Haussmannien apartment for a series of quirky spaces. Located on the upper floors of a wonderful “hotel particulier” overlooking the park, this project was a real puzzle! In the end we managed to structurally open it up so much that now the light even flows in the darkest corners of this home. None of the authentic architectural elements survived the previous renovations, but the uncovering of the beautiful “violin” structures of the windows was poetic enough to inspire us throughout this whole process.
The exterior of this residence is everything you could want in Paris architecture, and the interior is indeed quirky but the uniqueness and those photo-worthy windows really makes this apartment stand out. Designed by Hélène Van Marcke. Photos: Cafeïne.

Often when you see a designer creating a space for an art collector it gives off very “museum” vibes but not in this newly renovated Paris apartment. Hauvette & Madani designed this space to showcase the art with many unique and sculptural pieces of furniture and brought back the Haussmannian features that add so much charm. The result is a really welcoming, cozy and has a really playful energy. I am in love with the retro-vibing pink and green kitchen. Photos: François Coquerel
