A curator of design and an arbitrator of style. That’s how London based design sales agency The Specified describes itselfs. Considered pieces and quality finishes bring a cool, contemporary feel to this apartment. Modern, stylish and restrained.
Lots and lots of white, wood and natural tones and hits of blue turned this renovated New Jersey home into a beachy, bright, relaxed home perfect for family life. Beautifully executed by Salt Design Co. (photos: Raquel Langworthy)
This home in Beaune, Burgundy, France takes bringing the outdoors in to a whole other level. Pine is abundant in this holiday family home surrounded by vineyards, and it looks incredibly relaxing and cozy. The homeowners kept the decor neutral which allows the pine to really take centre stage. Beautiful. Via The Socialite Family (photos: Constance Gennari, architect: Thomas Walter)
It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then it certainly helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. Birkenstock 1774 Paris Showroom by Nick Vinson. (OMG! It’s chair heaven. I’m moving in.)
The other day I was walking home from work, and a couple blocks from my house I came across a home that had been completely torn down (there was no sign of this happening the day before). My neighbourhood is filled with what were recently deemed heritage homes. My house was built in 1940. They are all fully brick exteriors, and if lucky like mine, have stained and leaded glass windows and other really beautiful features from that era. The new homeowners of this house must have gotten permission to tear down because the heritage status isn’t in full effect yet. I really wanted to cry because it was a beautiful home (and I would guess had sold to these people for close to $800K!!!). I am still utterly speechless at this totally ignorant decision. When I come across homes like this, which appears to be an older home that has been renovated and modernized and maintains some of the original architecture, I am grateful. This bungalow in New South Wales, Australia is gorgeous inside and out and I would move in and not touch a thing. Hats off to designer Louise Walsh for keeping it real here.
