This post is a combination of 3 big loves of mine. Paris architecture, jaw-dropping interior design and one of my favourite architecture + design firms GCG Architectes. This apartment is really REALLY fabulous. I adore every inch of it – from the blue and green colour scheme to the chevron wood floors to the tile and that little high gloss dining niche (that is something I’m taking note of – I ADORE how they painted out the window sills). ***Update: this is the apartment of Studio Maddox, who is responsible for the interior design.

This is one of the most unique lofts I think we have ever shared on the blog. And this one might be my favourite. Located on the entire third floor of a converted shoe factory (2850 sq ft) in Shoreditch, London, it features 30 original Crittall windows (dreamy!!!), green plaster walls and ceilings, handmade Moroccan Bejmat Zellij terracotta tiled floors, bespoke oak joinery, hand-woven linen shutters. It is absolutely stunning. Designed by the insanely talented Chan + Eayrs, and currently for sale via The Modern House.

This 110 m² apartment in São Paulo, Brazil was built in the 60’s and needed a revived, modern life. Pascali Semerdjian Architects opened up the living room by removing the kitchen, service entrance and a bedroom, and it now includes a library, media area and is open to the dining room and new kitchen. Tons of new storage has been added, and some exposed brick and peeling walls remind the owners of its history. I REALLY love how they separated the kitchen space by carrying the tile all the way around. the tall
This house designed by Pascali Semerdjian Architects is pretty sweet too!
Despite my love of good food I don’t know what I would be able to concentrate at all on what I was eating if these were my surroundings. You would first have to pick my jaw up off the floor. Congrats to designer Jaime Hayon for coming up with this spectacular decor and what might be the most creative colour combination. La Terraza del Casino in Madrid is where you want to spend a magical Sunday evening. (Can you imagine this for a wedding venue?! *GASP!*)
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.
