i love this house because of all the glass, so it feels like there’s almost nothing between you & the forest.
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.
i can hear my dad in the back of my mind saying, no sense of place. with a disappointed shake of his head… and i’d have to agree! but i can appreciate the interior at least.
discussion is welcome, i’m sure lots of people out there actually love the outcome. via contemporist.
if you’re like me then you peruse the selby often (and by often i mean all the time), and there would be no need to show you these pics. but i’m going to take a shot in the dark and share them with you in case you’re not a follower. this is hervé pierre‘s apartment in new york city, he’s the design director for carolina herrera.
pierre has literally brought paris into his home, and it’s filled with the coolest stuff – hat boxes, paper art, vintage portraits, giant perfume bottles, fashion illustrations … not to mention the fact that his fridge is basically stocked with water and chocolate.
i urge you to see all the photos here
look at him in his jammies!
i have never been a carpet person, i much prefer an expanse of empty floor than having rugs lying all over the place (especially loose carpets on a floor that already has wall-to-wall carpeting… something i will never understand.) slowly though i have come to the realisation that it might just be because i have never come across carpets i actually like.
these antique carpets by swedish artist & textile designer martha meuse fjetterström (on auction at bukowski’s) are a huge exception. considering they’re priced between $4000-30,000 they probably would not be displayed on my floor.
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.
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.
this one is also pretty cool,
the project centers around a 1.6 x 3 m rotating door separating the living room from the bedroom.
