House Tour: A Majestic Home.

I fell for this airy, Scandinavian home ! What an apartment ! The architectural features of the building are just so beautiful that only a simple and elegant interior like this would do it justice. The designers at Bybon are responsible for the interior of this fabulous home.

As you probably noticed, my list turns very much around the tones and shades of blue, green and grey. Those are all cold colors and that’s what I like having around me and they are colors I feel good around. Make your own inspirational list at home, you might like warm colors or maybe even neutrals. Share your list with me, I cannot wait to see what kind of inspiration you have found for your new fall home !

House Tour : A colorful Ibiza home

If you love color and mix matching you will love this playful house in Ibiza. Owned by a Dutch couple, it is straight out of a fairy tale with whimsical elements all coming in electric shades, against a clean white canvas. It is a dynamic house with such an eclectic mix of color and textiles, you truly feel the identity of the family in the creation of this home. Wonderful !

Moroccan HOMES

I live just across the strait from Morocco and Morocco is one of my absolute favorite destinations (as you probably have noticed already !). Every single time I visit, I am stunned and amazed by the beautiful Moroccan interiors and architecture. And let’s not forget the tiles !!

Characterized by intricate carvings, arched doorways, and colorful fabrics, it should come as no surprise that Moroccan interior design has become very popular around the world.

Here, for your inspiration, are a few of my favorite examples.

White on White

White has always been my favorite color, this neutral, Scandinavian non color…

White on white on white is a beautiful look, but can you pull it off without your home looking hospital or museum ?

When treated right, it makes a bold, clean and dramatic statement ! Here are a couple of gorgeous ideas with the focus on white :

Inspiration for your outdoor space

I’m redoing my roof terrace and actively looking for some cool inspiration so I thought I’d share some of my finds with you ! A shallow balcony can be a welcome respite or a way to take in a summer breeze. When the weather is nice, a terrace or balcony can extend your square meterage, giving you more space for entertaining, dining or relaxing. However, it’s not only fantastic hours up there in the summer, but in the real estate market, outdoor space is gold. It’s expensive, it’s rare, and it can add enormous value to a home.

Here are some ideas to create an amazing outdoor space, no matter how small…

A green oasis in Venice beach, California

Photographer Philip Dixon created this Moroccan style retreat almost 20 years ago and it looks likes something out of a dream ! I am especially impressed by the magical garden and the calming water; the incredible river like pool running through the house. The inside/outside features of the house with the different spaces blending in together is another wonderful part of the house.  This sanctuary reflects his unique vision; a finely tuned aesthetic of minimalism, natural beauty and ethnic accents.

It feels worlds away… Have a look for yourselves !

In the name of PINK

The restaurant Sketch in London was redecorated by the Iranian architect and interior designer India Mahdavi in June 2014 and it’s all about Pink !

Screen-Shot-2014-06-25-at-20.27.20

I know it’s not exactly new, but Sketch is such a surprising place that I wanted to share it with you anyway. It it is the paradise for design and art lovers as well as foodies and India Mahdavi has the ability to sprinkle magic where ever she goes…

It is a monochromatic interior, strikingly simple, with powder pink walls and velvet-covered custom-made furniture and an art installation (a backdrop of 239 works) with new works by British artist  David Shrigley. It is a playful contrast between his works and the classical bourgeois side of the restaurant. There is a definite feeling of drama and elegance.

The work will comprise new ceramic tableware, manufactured by British heritage brand Caverswall featuring Shrigley’s distinctive mordant drawings and texts. Shrigley’s plate design reflects the restaurant’s location in the West End of London.
