A sophisticated colour palette and an inspired use of wallpaper and tile makes this Fitzroy house by Melbourne-based interior designer Kate Challis one of my all time favourites. It is brave and quirky, elegant and jewel like. It is in fact the designer’s own home, an ever evolving space, growing more and more beautiful with time. You can see an earlier version of this Melbourne house here.

High up in the rafters in the centre of Madrid is a penthouse full of light and space, pattern and colour and most of all exhuberance. It’s about modern living within a historic shell, keeping the past but surrounding yourself with contemporary luxury. Fabulous Spanish interiors by design duo Melián Randolph.
I am loving this renovated apartment in Madrid designed by Raul Martins. Those exposed wood beams and that tile floor throughout are beautiful features, and the colour accents really warm up the space. Greenery in vases appears to be his signature design element. (You’ll see what I’m talking about in the next post)
Oh, how I wish I could spend my Sunday in Paris’ Pigalle neighbourhood, enjoying a delicious meal at Pink Mamma. Designed by MBDS, this bar/restaurant is beautiful from the pink tiled exterior to the plant filled interior, including a rooftop garden. (photos: James McDonald unless otherwise noted)
