Magical. Playful. Sophisticated yet childlike. What a joy it would be to live in this Paris loft by interior architect Grégoire De Lafforest. From the pine tree in the living area to the hothouse in the kitchen, sorry the kitchen in the hothouse the loft is whimsical like a modern fairytale.

The folks at Polish architecture firm mode:lina sent over their latest completed project. It’s 140 sq m, and the clients are fans of Scandinavian style so they requested concrete and wood, with lots of white, and dark grey and yellow. They also wanted lots of storage while maximizing space so all doors are sliding, and the dog gets a spot to nap under the stairs. The clients also requested a fireplace and a TV that didn’t stand out, so dark walls help to hide these features. (Not sure why you would want to hide a fireplace). I have to mention how cool the concrete stairs with wooden treads look – seems to be an ongoing feature of a mode:lina property.
Colour is great! And what is better than colour? More colour. Don’t get me wrong.

Colour is the icing on this cake! Fabulous family home by Bestor Architecture.
