A renovated apartment in Berlin

Posted on Wed, 24 Oct 2018 by KiM

How to win me over in 2 steps. 1 – install some crittall doors as a room separator. 2 – install some old-school patterned tile in a “rug” pattern. Studio Karhard + TWArchitecten won me over just like that with this Berlin apartment renovation.

A SoHo loft with Parisian vibes

Posted on Wed, 12 Sep 2018 by KiM

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.

A renovated 1950’s ranch in Denver

Posted on Tue, 24 Jul 2018 by KiM

I had to share another jewel of a project from Denver architecture and construction firm Design Platform. This single level 1950’s ranch was transformed into a 2 story beauty on the inside and out and has a seriously funky mid-century vibe. THAT KITCHEN THO’!!! Such a genius move to take the tile all the way down the wall and across the floor. Spacious, fun and fabulous storage throughout.
