It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at . Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.
While I anxiously await the project that never seems like it is going to happen (the creation of a library in my third floor unused space), I can only hold back pang sof jealousy when I come across projects like this by Sophie Lallias of . She created a bedroom and library and left a narrow staircase to access the rest of the apartment. 3.5 metre high bookcases allow for maximum use of a very small space and the result is TONS of book storage, a workspace and a cozy bedroom. (That’s Farrow& Ball’s wallpaper in the hallway and Cole & Sons in the bedroom…and these photos are by Benoit Alazard)

Rich velvets and metallics, fine art and carefully curated collections, dark corners and soaring ceilings. It’s all about the drama, a glamorous modern drama. Luxurious, refined, sophisticated, rich. West Village Residence by New York based .
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.
Li has sung the praises of Géraldine Prieur of before and I just had to share a few more of her intense colour schemes. Brave, bold and brilliant. (If you check Li’s post you’ll notice that the first pink room was once eau de nil and purple. I’m torn but I think I like this pink version better.)
