I spotted this location home on Shoot Factory and had to share. It is soooo spacious – 7000 sq ft with 6 bedrooms, a pile of bathrooms, 3 living rooms, an indoor/outdoor pool…. The following photos are only maybe half of the rooms in this house. WHOA! I adore the kitchen (that brass and marble!), and the openness to the dining and living room (one of them).
Café Birdie in L.A.’s Highland Park neighbourhood is a little bit of Paris bistro style in California. Designed by ETC.etera, 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 Good Housekeeping with exposed brick and a gold bar. I would loooove to spend my Sunday here!

Pink and blue and brass … not what you would expect in a kitchen but this is not your average kitchen. No. It’s another Naked Kitchen. Modern and chic with that clean lined, no handle look. Think fun and flirty and fresh.
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 AD France 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 Studio KO, 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 AD Germany, 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.
Another remarkable project from the talented team of L’agence Véronique Cotrel. This time it’s the complete renovation, layout, and decoration of a 60 m2 apartment in Saint Germain des Prés. From an architectural point of view, the fundamentals were totally restored. The original wood beams were uncovered from beneath layers of plaster. The kitchen, a bit of an awkward space is a total gem with stunning tile and brass accents. It’s odd they chose dark uppers and lighter lower cabinets but hey – in Paris anything goes!
