Paris Modern

This is quite an apartment. I love the dark cabinetry with the wide plank floors. The kitchen is fantastic – I think that might be a floating hood vent, I’m not sure. I have no idea how that would work – but it looks very cool. I also don’t know what type of counter top is used, but it has this very neat texture. I love that the original ceilings were maintained + Sergio Rodriquez chair + Caravaggio pendants + + +. I only wish they’d shown the living room – you can get a glimpse of an oversized pendant in the space, but man, would I love to see it. Thanks Marie Claire Maison.

Brooklyn Home of Eva and Gentry Dayton

I love the floors, tone, overall feel of this Brooklyn home belonging to designers Eva and Gentry Dayton. The pair designed the Helmut Lang showroom in NYC, amongst other projects. Eva also runs the store Eva Gentry in Brooklyn.

I feel like every time I see a new home in a magazine or online, I learn something about styling. This home has a consistent, monochrome feel throughout and I love the details in the kitchen…like the cutting boards and tea pots. Those little wood and black touches are great against the white backdrop.

Home of Architect Martina Eriksson

Sorry for some extended silence – I just got back from a few days in Florida with my kids and husband. Great little break – but I think my trip away made me crave some natural finishes and paired down scale. I saw (i.e drove by) so many over the top mansions by the beach.

Here’s a country home outside of Stockholm where architect Martina Eriksson lives. This house is beautifully done – it’s simple, natural, and filled with some really interesting details (I love the wicker pendant in the living room, the open tread wooden staircase, the outdoor shower, mix of modern and rustic…). I imagine living in this house would feel like a real escape.

Pattern Please

I’m in the mood for a lot of colour inspiration today (and everyday, really). I particularly love this red and white fabric in this top photo. Any idea where it’s from?
