Happy weekend! Hope it's a relaxed and lovely one. The weather promises to be bitterly cold here, so we'll be curling up indoors and keeping warm while catching up on a movie or two. How about you?

I am in awe of the sheer beauty of the Parisian apartment of designers Gilles & Boissier — love their confident mix of antique, modern and flea market pieces, set against rich swirls of stucco decorating the walls and ceiling. A minimalist palette of black, dark brown and white allows the eye to really take in each object placed in the space — the effect is like a sculpture gallery, but a comfortably liveable one. Beautiful. More here on Afflante.
A staircase salvaged in 1989 from the Eiffel Tower and relocated to Center of the World, Felicity, California now mysteriously leads to nowhere. More staircases going nowhere here on gizmodo.
