UNDERSTATED LUXURY IN PARISIAN APARTMENT



I love understated luxury and I noticed that Belgian interior designers and architects have the perfect approach to it.
This Parisian apartment, designed by Belgian architect Nicolas Schuybroek demonstrated how a sharp vision of space and materials, you can still manage to maintain a warm ambience.

INTER EXCHANGE OF CREATIVE HOMES





My husband and I have been looking at exchanging our beloved and beautiful modernist 200m2 home (Yes, lucky us!;) ) in the middle of the fascinating district of Eixample in Barcelona with other home´s owners. We love the spirit of exchanging goods and services and it makes total sense at our eyes.
Unfortunately,  we quickly realised  that we did not manage to find the same style of apartment or lifestyle on all of those exchange homes places...
Don´t get us wrong or being too needy, they are some nice places, but we felt that we were not getting the same value in the exchange. :(  We thought that there was nice market in this !!
So, what a nice surprise, when we came across the new platform Behomm that offers just that ! :)

8 MUST HAVES FOR A READING NOOK THIS WINTER



It´s getting cold outside, time to prepare some comfortable areas in our homes..

For me the best way to relax is sitting down with a glass of wine reading a book or catching up on monthly magazines. But in order to fully disconnect and escape into my own world (which is something It normally happen (sometimes) after 9pm (when my boy is asleep an the house is quiet again.. Bliss....) or early Saturday morning (when hubby takes him to swimming lessons.. Grateful.....)....

LIVING THE FRENCH COUNTRY LIFE



I came across this blog this summer and what a pleasant surprise, I absolutely adore it and I could spend hours looking at those amazing pictures.

MID CENTURY BEAUTIFUL LA HOME




They are some houses, in which you feel immediately at home. In Silverlake ( neighbourhood of LA), stylist Jessica de Ruiter and sculptor-designer Jed Lind updated a 1950s gem into a bright family oasis. The house was originally designed in 1953 for an artist.
For this couple, the renovation of the structure was definitely a bigger project than they had anticipated.
They used warm woods, Moroccan rugs, kilims from Woven Accents and vintage Ikat pillows to soften and contrast sharper angles. Modern, eclectic and fashionable. Style crush !!

BEVERLY HILLS IN LONDON




India Mahdavi redecorate the 'Sketch ' restaurant in London : pink, pink and more dusty pink. A monochromatic and relaxing with velvet touches many curves and brass interior with Beverly Hills feel. The whole space is grounded by glorious chevron-patterned and multi-coloured tiles on the floor (very Missoni, no ? ) and check the majestic glass dome above.
Very classic, simple and bourgeois design. Almost like in La Durée Shop ! We love !
