Dartk and moody, modern and minimalist. Blurring the lines between outdoors and indoors. This weekend home is designed to maximise water views while accommodating a low maintenance, single story layout. The spaces within the house are arranged around a central courtyard which not only acts as a physical separation between the guest wing and public areas but allows views of the water for every room. All of the building materials, charred wood siding, zinc metal and exposed concrete, require little maintenance and age gracefully over time. These materials reflect the owner’s desire for a home that will blend within the landscape and provide a relaxing retreat from the city. Architect: Adam Jordan. Photos: Eric Petschek.
Scandinavian, modern, minimalist vibes are evident throughout this Haussmannian apartment in Paris that was completely renovated by Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann of architecture firm Heju. They preserved as many original details as possible, and moved the kitchen such that it became the central gathering spot. The pink marble countertop is beautifully subtle and I adore the added curve in the island which is then mimicked in the cabinet hardware and light fixture.
Sharing another period home that I have fallen in love with thanks to Shoot Factory. This Grade II listed property was built around 1700. It includes a 5 bedroom restored and renovated stone home with outbuildings including a restored barn and man cave. The exterior has all the charm you could want in an old English home, while the interior has beautiful original details with some modern touches. (Photographer: Richard Oxford)
Sean Anderson always makes my heart skip a beat. His ability to create such dynamic spaces with a neutral colour palette, lots of textures like linen and raw wood and mixing old and new furnishings is so impressive. This Tennessee home is everything. (Architect: David Anderson, Photographer: Rett Peek)
I came across this incredible home the other day and fell in love. It is a 19th century farm house in Umeå, Sweden, and is home to designer Soraya Forsberg and her husband, 6 kids and 2 dogs. It is fabulously rustic and time-worn, and as you can tell from the photos is an ever-changing canvas. What a dream space! (Photos: Lina Östling via Sköna hem & Andy Liffner via Residence.
