I have always dreamt about having a cabin on a lake somewhere on the outskirts of Ottawa to spend weekends enjoying nature and the quiet of the country life. This cabin may not have much going on in the interior (which is typically what you get from an architect’s portfolio), but it is breathtaking in its simplicity. I would absolutely maintain a minimalist approach with this space and keep the colour palette neutral with some pastel accents. You know, that Scandi vibe. You basically have to with all that pine. By Montréal-based .
I love the idea of a second home/cottage/pied-à-terre – a home you can be brave with and do all the things you wouldn’t dare do in your primary residence. The owners of this pied-à-terre live in London and needed a space in the heart of Paris. took what is a beautiful 130 sq m structure, did a bit of re-working and added alot of charm and creativity in a Lisanathan-Adler-esque style that is a bit quirky, colourful and fun.

in L.A.’s Highland Park neighbourhood is a little bit of Paris bistro style in California. Designed by , this firm accentuated the 1920’s structure with some sexy lighting, beautiful floral wallpaper, pretty pale colours. The black bentwood stools and chairs, iron and marble tables, marble topped bar and brass accents really add to the Parisian vibe. There is also a cocktail bar in behind called with exposed brick and a gold bar. I would loooove to spend my Sunday here!
