This bachelor is bound to score some dates with his fantastic pad in San Francisco designed by Studio Munroe. This single level three bedroom home for a 20-something bachelor needed to respect its classic Edwardian detailing while channeling the spirit and lifestyle of its young owner and the dynamic surrounding neighborhood. Unexpected wallpaper, deep jewel toned paint, and a mix of bespoke furnishings did the trick. (Photos: Thomas Kuoh)

A little bit of glam, bling, and colour for your Thursday afternoon care of China-based designer Baptiste Bohu. Located in one of the most luxurious residential tower of Shanghai, this apartment occupies the entire floor. The owners, a young and well traveled Chinese couple, share their life between Shanghai and Vancouver. They wanted a modern yet comfortable and elegant interior for their Shanghai apartment. Baptiste used premium materials which gave a very chic look and worked with a mix of French style and contemporary furniture.
San Francisco designer Alison Damante calls this “New York minimalism meet Berkeley funk”. Here’s the scoop on this inspiring project: Recent East Coast transplants wanted a sparse, white backdrop for their expansive art collection, as well as an authentic design response to their mid-century home, with its bay views, exposed wood beams and original 1960’s cast concrete fireplace. Vibrant colors, handcrafted fixtures and modern furniture take cues from each installation, unifying the space and meshing art with life. I really dig this house. Everything about it architecturally is awesome, and then Alison kept the basics all in bright white so you can really change things up easily by swapping out the art/cushions/accent chairs etc. (Architecture: YamaMar Photography: Bruce Damonte)
Chicago-based interior designer Alessandra Branca is mixing things up in unconventional ways. Mostly traditional furnishings are paired with bold floral and striped patterns, and some fairly bright colours. Taking things up a notch by creating spaces that are approachable yet elegant.
I have fallen in love with this London location home mostly due to the sheer size of the kitchen (maximum envy here!) but also because of the eclectic vibe throughout. Some bold accent colours, a touch of black, some patterns in a funky sofa and wallpaper…. Via 1st Option Locations.
