A completely renovated home all in white

Posted on Sat, 3 Mar 2018 by KiM

A 150 m2 home that was uninhabited for quite some time in Barcelona with no personality and lacking in light and flow was totally transformed by Bárbara Aurell, interior architect and designer of . I would guess Bárbara has a thing for white, and it seems so do these homeowners. This apartment was transformed with lots of white paint and furnishings and the result is charming and bright. And the bathroom is to die for! Via .

A family home in Tel Aviv

Posted on Fri, 2 Mar 2018 by KiM

A big thanks to interior designer  for sending over photos of one of his recent projects. This is the home of a young family in Herzliyah, a district of Tel Aviv, Israel. The current homeowners bought the 30 year old home from the original owners , so as you would guess, it needed a lot of updates and modernizing including opening up walls, both interior and exterior and renovating the kitchen and bathrooms. The renovations and design were done on a very limited budget. The result is modern, family-friendly and timeless. Great job Scott!

Another Paris apartment by Desjeux Delaye

I continue to crush on the fabulous Parisian apartments the ladies of  have designed. I continue to adore the details and the drama and the addition of colour. This dining room (though I’m unsure why it has a sink) is killer! LOVE that shelving! And the mirror!

Los Feliz style

Love the vibe in this home designed by L.A. based designer . Some dark paint choices make it moody, with furnishings that give it a groovy, mid-century feel. I dig all of this.

A dreamy Paris apartment

Posted on Fri, 23 Feb 2018 by KiM

I could not love this Paris apartment more. Seriously spectacular detail. By .

Before Baron Haussmann started gutting Paris under Napoleon the 3rd, a wave of modernization had started in the center of Paris where new buildings had gone up according to a different set of rules which would ultimately lead to what is known as the Haussmannian type. This apartment is located in such building and its decorative influence (both on the facade and inside apartments) bares a Greek influence, rather than Neoclassical, which would be generalized for later buildings.
As in most apartment renovations in older buildings, the layout was radically modified as the kitchen was brought right next to the front entrance and left as an open space and a master suite was created where the kitchen was formerly located. We undertook heavy restoration of original features (more specifically a remarkable wood floor) and created a smooth transition with remodeled areas so as to preserve the feel of an early 19th century apartment. Whenever possible, contemporary elements were introduced which, in combination with the furniture selection, create a lively and modern interior.
