Crushing on another Heidi Caillier project (if you missed the last one it is here) and this one is lighter and dare I say funkier than the last. But it is equally fabulous and I just love how she pairs pieces from various styles always with a vintage touch and creates magical spaces.
This apartment could not be more uplifting, fun, quirky and retro-fabulous!!! I found this Ibiza home (of vintage shop owner Vicente Ganesha) on the website of super-talented interior stylist Pete Bermejo and I am having heart palpitations. I had to start with the bedroom because it is beyond gorgeous. (I hope he has hired someone to clean because I can’t imagine dusting his glass collection). Photos: Pablo Zamora
This mid-century house would be such a dream – architects back then knew their sh*t I tell ya. And Studio Shamshiri recently brought it back to life. An eight-year excavation, restoration and revitalization of a 1948 Rudolph Schindler house. Every window and surface of the original section of the house was brought back from it’s then unrecognizable state, and, with a fresh eye, new additions of the house were built, paying strict homage to the original spirit of the home. Purposeful, custom furniture and millwork were designed to fulfill various needs. Schindler ‘s designs sought to transform low art into high art through the poetic use of standard everyday materials and the Lechner House stands as a lasting and remarkable example of this vision.

“Located along the coastline of Port Phillip Bay and within arm’s reach of the Portsea Pier, Portsea Beach House is the refurbishment of an existing cliff top residence. The proposed scheme pays homage to the understated character of the house which is reminiscent of the modernist era and adopts a sympathetic palette that draws inspiration from the surrounding coastal context.”
Simple, stylish, so satisfying. Respect for the past informs new design decisions. Finishes are luxe but restrained except those crazy paved floors. They’re just outrageously good. Portsea Beach House by Melbourne-based Studio Esteta.
Where would I rather be on this cool and rainy Sunday? How about lounging poolside or soaking in a tub at the beautiful Hotel Joaquin in Laguna Beach (formerly a dilapidated Motor Inn). Hotel Joaquin was designed by Studio Robert McKinley to embody chic, playful, and layered décor. Inspiration for the décor was taken from the island of St.Barths, the 1950s Southern California beach culture, and the timeless and pristine aesthetic of the Mediterranean coast. Each room was individually designed with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, customized furniture, and curated artwork. Luxurious bathrooms feature monolithic imported stone offset by glinting solid brass fixtures. Hand-cut and crafted tile pays homage the timeless work of coastal craftsmen.
