Playful Details


Located in northern Zealand, this renovated barn is now the bohemian home of Danish designer Christina Lund Steen, husband Marc Brøndum and their three children. Love how it's filled with all kinds of unexpected and playful details — especially like her interesting use of scale and fantastic colour sense. More here on KK Living.

Simple Pleasures


Having a little serving of mystery in your day.

Loft Living, Italian Style


The Florence apartment of Marco Semeghini reflects his sophisticated eye for pattern, colour and texture — something that comes naturally to someone who works in the fashion industry, as marketing manager for brands like Gucci and Tom Ford. Beautiful space. More here.

Monday


A delicate nature still life to start your week gently. Have a good one.

Quiet Minimalism


The quietly beautiful home of Stine, who runs her own fashion agency, and Henrik, a clothing designer, perfectly demonstrates their instinctive good taste — not surprising for two people who work in the clothing industry. The 1900s apartment they share with their two young children has been carefully decorated with a minimalist aesthetic, to allow the lovely original details — stucco ceilings, huge windows and parquet floors — to have pride of place. Love this one. More here on Bo Bedre.

Weekend


Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. Thinking of seeing some live local music here — enjoy your own!

Modern Oasis


Twenty years ago cultural manager Francisco de Blas purchased a plot of land in Sevilla la Nueva, just outside Madrid. The house he designed in 2000 reflects what he describes as a basic need for him — "the ability to listen to music when and how I wish." Those astounding views are definitely an added bonus when he's blaring Puccini at 3 a.m. More here on AD España.

Smile


Still one of my all time favourite movie scenes — the frozen palace in the 1966 film Doctor Zhivago. If only winter ice was always this beautiful.

Minimalist in Montreal


Love this inspired transformation of an 1880s Montreal rowhouse by Mark Fekete and Viviana de Loera, co-founders of interdisciplinary design firm MARK + VIVI. Especially like the clever use of recycled materials in the kitchen. Fantastic. More here on Dwell.

Mark Fekete and Viviana de Loera, co-founders of interdisciplinary design firm MARK + VIVI, happily took on the challenge of building their dream home in a transitioning Montreal neighborhood. Working with a relatively small footprint that gave them just 1,100 total square feet of finished living space, the couple used simple and minimal materials to embrace and celebrate the original character of the 1880 home. Space was thoughtfully maximized by opening up the ceiling to expose both the original and new beams, removing partition walls to create an open floor plan, and converting the crawlspace beneath the home into usable storage. The result is a bright, quirky, and imaginative blend of old and new.
