The history of stylist Yvan Mispelaere's wonderful Florence, Italy home is just as interesting as the space itself — located in a sixteenth century botanical park, it was originally intended as a pool house for a pool that was never installed. Transformed into a romantic garden in the 19th century, the park is filled with such neo-Gothic touches as a Renaissance wall, ancient temples and esoteric stone carvings — elements that are a perfect complement to the modern surrealism in the house itself. Here, Yvan has created a world inspired by the Dadaists and Surrealists, brightened with notes of brilliant blue and silver. Love. More here on AD France.

Today I'm admiring 'Up with in' by the American painter Frederick Hammersley in 1957-58 — such great colour, forms and energy.
