Danish Countryside Loft

Lovely city escape in Denmark care of Marie Claire Maison. How great is that window in the third picture? Looks like art.

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.

Mediterranean Bliss

I’d be thrilled to stay in a shack anywhere near Sardinia – so I can only imagine what it would be like to stay in a place like this:

Contemporary home in “ile de La Maddelena” designed by architect Jean-Paul Arrivetz, as seen in Marie Claire Maison.

What I particularly love: Window instead of backsplash in kitchen, tiled bathroom walls, black oval tub. steel beams. Could go on and on…

A Splash of Colour

I’ve designed a house with pretty neutral tones – walnut floors, white walls, charcoal doors and accents. But I love colour. I think little touches of colour here and there make a home.

Here are some shots that add a bit of upmh by mixing it up a bit.
