There is something so incredibly peaceful and comforting about a home filled with white and pale wood. This 1970s structure underwent major renovations and the results leave you to believe the home has been around much longer than that. A very neutral colour palette and many European antiques are a welcome addition. I could not love this more. (And that antique stone sink in the kitchen! SWOON!) Designed by Shannon Bowers.

Back in 2018 I was sent a copy of designer Amanda Lindroth‘s book Island Hopping and was mesmerized by her tropical, breezy, timeless style. I stumbled up on her website again the other day and continue to be smitten. With winter coming and the thought of missing out on yet another trip to Mexico, I can use all the tropical inspiration I can get.
I am rendered virtually speechless over these breathtakingly beautiful spaces designed by Studio Peregalli. I will simply let you scroll. Prepare to be transported to another time and place… (Photos: Elle Decor – Simon Upton (1, 7, 8, 12), Architectural Digest Germany – Robert Rieger (2-5, 14, 15), Architectural Digest/Condé Nast (6, 10, 11), Galerie – Massimo Listri (7, 9, 13))
I have been following Atelier Vime for some time now on Instagram, and it finally dawned on me that I should feature this truly magical French shop/design studio here on the blog. They are a vintage basketry shop and producer of wicker, rattan and rope furniture, located in Vallabrègues in an 18th century hôtel particulier. You would never know their photos were actually “product” shots as the architectural details and styling of the spaces is consistently exemplary.
I fell in love with this home when I first saw it featured in a recent edition of Architectural Digest and though I think it made the rounds on the web over the summer I still wanted to share for those who might have missed it. The architecture is the wow factor, and the cozy and unique furnishings, a lot of which I think are vintage, add high class and sophistication yet aren’t too precious that the whole family (with 2 kids) can’t enjoy. This perfection was designed by Alisa Bloom.
