CB House, located in Madrid and designed by Plantea Estudio, is about as uncomplicated and neutral as you can get. Everything is painted white, the pale grey concrete floors ground the space and accents in copper, peach and tan and a bit of zing. I adore this space because you can change up the entire vibe quite easily and go very bold if you wanted to.

It’s what I say time and time again (join me if you want) … if you have to drag your sorry self into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. Amanu West Hollywood (bespoke leather sandles while you wait) by ETC.etera.

“Architecture meets the art of living in this extraordinary, contemporary three-bedroom home comprised of a plinth and pavilion structure nestled into the northern California nature. An array of sliding glass panels retracts completely into the home’s core, dematerializing the structure into a native-oak-strewn ridge.
Bridging architectural innovation with day-to-day functionality and family living, the interiors are accented with warm finishes, elemental materials and personal accessories. Anchoring the highly edited spaces, custom furnishings are crafted with exacting artisanship. Interiors are both timeless and welcoming.”
I was going to string along some totally inadequate descriptions which included words like fabulous and amazing but I don’t have to. The designer’s own description and the photos tell it all. The only thing I would like to add is WOW! Larkspur Hilltop by Nicole Hollis.
One of my IG friends, the lovely Katie Saro, managed to score a really REALLY cheap Vladimir Kagan sofa. Maybe I hate her now. And then while I was sharing it in my IG stories and blogging last night I spotted this home with a Kagan sofa and figured it was fate and I should share the Kagan sofa love. This is Summitridge by Marmol Radziner. The Summitridge interiors are modern and feminine with strong mid-century modern European influences. We selected a primarily neutral color palette of cream, ivory, blush, and violet tones. Soft curves abound, from the mid-century Vladimir Kagan Serpentine sofa and custom Marmol Radziner round parchment coffee table in the living room to the Pierre Paulin mushroom chairs and ottomans in the family room.
It may seem a little sparsely curated, perhaps a little spartan chic but the home of designer and stylist Louisa Grey of House of Grey is, after all, a location house. What appears stark in one photo is magically transformed into swoon worthy rooms full of swoon worthy product for exhibitions and photo shoots. In the Neighbourhood – The Grey House was an exhibition of works by designers such as Frama, Mass Productions, Nest Design, Henry Wilson and Tycjan Knut just this last September. (Can we just take a moment to drink in the beauty of those custom curtains by Nest Design.) A stunning simple house home to a woman with a great eye.
