Clean lined, simple architecture with emphasis on natural materials such as wood, stone, metal, linen and cotton. The pursuit of timeless, beautiful spaces without losing functionality. That’s the manifesto of Madrid-based Estudio María Santos and this light and bright, modern apartment in the Ventas area is a perfect example.
I am envious of people who live in homes with soaring cielings with windows that seem endless. My home may have beautiful stained and leaded glass windows but they aren’t very big so I get patches of direct light in certain rooms for about a half hour each day. It is definitively a love/hate relationship. Instead I live vicariously through other people’s homes, like these with windows and doors to die for by McAlpine.
I have always had a thing for cozy seating areas like banquettes and window seats. It seems Julie Goldman of J.Latter Design and the owners of this home in New Orleans share this obsession. Happy weekend!
I’m in Collingwood an inner-city suburb of Melbourne and I’m stalking one half of an old concrete block warehouse. Inside it’s soaring ceilings and white walls, black steel windows and open spaces. From the mix of mid century and contemporary furniture to the striking artwork it’s the quintessential industrial meets modern living conversion. It appears that’s it is being used as a commercial premises and I’m stratching my head as to where I’d put the bed. You must view the listing video and leave your critique of the acting in the comments. Link here while it lasts.
P.S. Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s post on the other half of this building. A completely different take on the space.
