A little bit of glam, bling, and colour for your Thursday afternoon care of China-based designer Baptiste Bohu. Located in one of the most luxurious residential tower of Shanghai, this apartment occupies the entire floor. The owners, a young and well traveled Chinese couple, share their life between Shanghai and Vancouver. They wanted a modern yet comfortable and elegant interior for their Shanghai apartment. Baptiste used premium materials which gave a very chic look and worked with a mix of French style and contemporary furniture.
My friend Roseline sent me a message the other day that her friend’s mom passed away suddenly and her beautiful farmhouse in The Netherlands has been put up for sale. Built around 1910 on the border of the towns of Knegsel and Veldhoven, it has been renovated and rebuilt several times over the years yet still maintains a time-worn look and appears to have been given a bit of an ethnic facelift recently. This home is absolutely stunning and what a dream it would be to put my mark on such a space. Listing details can be found here.
Keeping things simple and somewhat minimalist today with this loft apartment in London. Gorgeous worn wood floors, concrete columns, a dramatic dark panelled bedroom and some homeliness added in with some paintings and lot of plants makes this apartment something I could totally call home. Available as a location space via Shoot Factory.
I think if all we featured were Parisian flats, the world would be a better place. LOL! Here is yet another beauty located in this heavenly French city designed by Spanish interior designer Isabel López-Quesada. A pied-à-terre for the homeowners who clearly have a thing for modern art and Isabel has given it a funky boutique hotel feel. This has me feeling all the feels for that mustard yellow carpet in the living room. So simple yet it is the perfect dose of bold colour. (Photos: Ricardo Labougle)

Here is another example of why I am such a fan of Reath Design‘s style. Frances Merrill took another Craftsman (this time a 1910 beach house) and brought home the funk! More fun wallpaper, tile, patterned fabric and vintage finds make this home soooo much fun and a total eye candy. If you ever thought about painting your old kitchen cabinets yellow, this should sell you on the idea.
