i’m not one to lust after luxury (looking at net-a-porter almost every day doesn’t count as lusting after luxury, right?) but i would really like to stay in the sweet room at maison moschino, please. those pillows!
this house is totally a case of oooooh i love the interior, but blegh why did they have to put that white block in the middle of a street filled with pretty old houses? really? way to ruin the neighbourhood guys.
the house from a single man is still up for sale, by the way. just in case you were on the market and you wanted to spend in the region of $1,5 million (or less? i mean, in the current climate…) – this would be a good buy. designed in 1948 by john lautner; it is an open plan living masterpiece made from redwood, concrete and glass which opens up to the oak forest that surrounds it. heaven?
the design of this attic to maximise space & provide for various living areas on different levels is pretty darn cool.
instead of taking the existing rooms as a starting point, the architect placed a large three-dimensional object in the space, creating a play of heights and a second level. the mezzanine-like structure not only provides a separate sleeping area and extra storage, but also screens off a kitchen area and bathroom.
i literally do not have the words to describe this flat, but that’s okay because i think the photos tell you everything
beautiful exteriors & interiors shot by douglas friedman, they look like they’re straight from a nancy meyer film
holy wow check out this flat in paris… though i think i would be shit scared to climb those stairs.
facing the eglise saint-gervais on one side and the hôtel de ville de paris on the other, this 95 sqm apartment occupies the whole of the the two top floors of an 18th century building.
a walk in bookcase is almost more appealing than a walk in closet (almost)
the rest of the house is pretty darn amazing too…
this place looks really awesome, the book club is situated in a former victorian warehouse in the east end of london that’s been renovated into a new venue for eating, drinking, meeting & dancing.
greg martin did an awesome renovation of this old building in minneapolis, taking 2 years to turn it from a run down warehouse-like commercial building into 2 residential units (one of which he settled in with his daughter) and one commercial unit, to supplement his income. impressive & so beautifully done…
( Ma + Chr ) is an art and design studio based in Paris, founded by Mathilde Aubier and Christine Delaquaize.
wow, two very talented individuals – i love the way they remix vintage imagery with a sense of humour, and really adore the interior & graphic work they did for the nambodaï restaurant in paris
i grew up in a white walls household – it just went with my parent’s ‘modernist’ house and that was that. i still get nervous about putting colour on the walls, though i have toyed with the idea of light grey (hah). my rented flat has a sort of beigey crap colour in all the rooms (even the bathroom!) that i’m not allowed to paint over & it drives me kind of nutso.
