Have have many dear readers of the blog who have followed us for years and years. Shirley is one of them. I featured her B&B ( in L’Orignal, about an hour drive east of Ottawa) back in 2012. Alot has happened since then as I learned in an email from Shirley the other day and it was so moving I had to share.
My story is here just in case you know somebody who wants to help themselves: ,
I’m loving the energy in this eclectic 1898 home in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen belonging to and Anders de Lichtenberg that I spotted on . As the story goes, it was completely renovated (kitchen became a bathroom, living room became a kitchen…) and is now a contemporary space filled with statement pieces of furniture, such as a Arne Jacobsen Series 7 dining chairs, a Vertigo pendant by Constance Guisset, Poul Kjaerholm PK22 chairs, a Romeo Rega table, a Hans Wegner Flag Halyard chair, a FOS diamond table etc. Also, this may be my favourite pink kitchen.

A touch of modern industrial in the rural Spanish town of Fonolleres is what I am sharing today. Because that combo sounds ideal and after devouring these photos it looks ideal too. Concrete floors, white washed pine (?), black steel beams and windows, some really gorgeous subway tiles and a pool has rendered me smitten. Interior design: Architect: Borrell Lisaver
Another project by Espacio en Blanco here
Didier Ryan of British architecture firm worked some magic on this warehouse conversion to create an absolutely fabulous loft. What was once a furniture depot for the renowned department store Harrods is now modern, unfussy and spacious. Featuring windows I would do just about anything for.
