Sharing another simple, white space in Madrid because simple can be so good. This 250 m² home is in the Salamanca neighbourhood and was designed by . It has a cool, eclectic vibe with some mid-century and rustic elements that make it homey. I’m really digging all of the lighting here.

I am sharing a bit of Architectural Digest inspiration today as these 2 homes caught my attention hard and really got my design juices flowing. This first one was featured in and is located in Place du Palais-Bourbon. Doesn’t get much swankier than that…until you see inside this apartment! It is a stunner, down to the brass trim in the living room. And will you look at the hardwood in the photo below!! Designed by , photos by Ambroise Tézenas.
This was in just as fabulous but much more casual, bright and showcases some gorgeous vintage furniture and lighting. Featured in , this next home is that of fashion photographer Andrea Maino and is located in a 100 year old converted shoe factory in northern Italy. Photos by Helenio Barbetta.
