I’m almost at a loss for words. This home in Wentworth-Nord, Québec designed by Montréal architect Alain Carle is so incredibly beautiful from the outside in. Most of the wood and stone throughout the house are reclaimed and are what really make this home special. Alongside the concrete floors, plaster walls and crittall windows, it is a winning combination. Bonus points for the dark stained wood adding in some moody drama. This is everything I love.

From the heady heights of a mid century classic to a humble ranch abode, is there anything Los Angeles based interior design firm Hallworth can’t put its hand to? Apparently not. I’m packing my bags to move in.
This Los Angeles mid century house by John Lautner had, in the words of Bestor Architecture, “slipped off the radar” and fallen into disrepair. Their sensitive renovation addressed structural issues, replaced glass, stripped the interior down to the original red concrete floor, added new cabinetry, addressed the leaking roof and reinstated the original carport. A wonderful new life guaranteed for this 1948 gem.

I’m stalking in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote today and what is on my real estate radar is this light, bright, family home. The modern renovation and extension takes what is a simple wooden cottage and transforms it into a four bedroom, open plan home with seamless indoor-outdoor living. It’s up for auction with a guide price of $1,800,000 – $1,980,000 AUD. (And yes Australian house prices are still crazy.) Link here while it lasts.
I’m always a fan of style mixin’, and in this apartment in Gdańsk, Poland it starts with some some classic moldings, chevron hardwood floor, a clawfoot bathtub and some exposed brick. This is all modernized in bright white with added built-ins, mirrored walls (storage perhaps?), contemporary furnishings and lighting and some funky tile work. A very dynamic and stunning space designed by Anna Maria Sokołowska. (Photos: Fotomohito)
