A renovated 1980 villa in the South of France

Posted on Thu, 26 May 2022 by KiM

This 1980’s villa in Saint Clement de Riviere, in the South of France was fully renovated and transformed by Baptiste Bohu Interiors into a hacienda with a mix of Spanish/Mexican architecture and Moroccan elements. In the perfect colour palette of black and white, with a bit of mustard, and lots of wood and rattan it’s a visual feast of earthy goodness in an absolutely stunning setting.

A renovated Pennsylvania barn

Posted on Tue, 24 May 2022 by KiM

After renovating and moving into a small farmhouse, a young family of five decided to transform the century-old stone barn and silo complex on their property into their new home. The main floor of the barn features very large vertical public spaces, finished in reclaimed wood and field stone. The three levels of the barn are connected by the silo which, repurposed for vertical circulation, contains an industrial, spiral stair. Fusing the aesthetics of both husband and wife was challenging, but ultimately led to the modern-rustic feel.
WOW, to live among all of that wood and stone. Being one with nature like that must be so comforting and serene. A gorgeous renovation by NYC based Cicognani Kalla Architect.

Cliff House

This sprawling home with the most epic views is located in Glen Ellen, California and is another project by those talented Hommeboys. Indoor/outdoor living is essential with a location like this, and the organic materials used throughout really do help bring nature indoors. Absolutely stunning.

A Di Biase Filkoff Architects roundup

Posted on Mon, 16 May 2022 by KiM

After featuring this project last week by Di Biase Filkoff Architects and being in awe of the beauty of their work I thought I would show a smattering of spaces from some of their other projects. I am particularly fond of the Swedish manor in the first few photos.

R├ęsidence Coloniale

Posted on Mon, 16 May 2022 by KiM

The Maison-Boutique Coloniale is an atypical residence in the Plateau Mont-Royal area of Montreal, designed by the owners Michael Godmer of Godmer, who specializes in residential renovations of period buildings, & Mathieu Turgeon. It was designed to be their main residence, doubling as a showroom for Michael’s firm and including a design studio on the lower level. A living portfolio. Throughout the 1800 sq ft house is a careful selection of materials, objects, furniture and lighting, available from local suppliers with whom the designers collaborate (including light fixtures from one of my favourite lighting studios – Lambert et Fils). I love this home because I know how hard it can be to work with a very narrow space – my last home was 10′ wide. (Photographer: Maxime Brouillet)
