COLONIAL MEETS INDUSTRIAL MODERN

One of the many things Mexico City is known for is for its modern and innovative architecture. But this colonial revival stunner is also a sight to be seen. Located in ‘El Zocalo’ right in the city center, the beautiful Downtown Mexico Hotel merges the magnificent Mexican colonial style with a contemporary and industrial vibe. The new, modern identity and character of the boutique hotel was conceived and designed by Cherem Serrano Arquitectos. I'm amazed how brilliantly they incorporated such a basic material as Mexican red bricks to create sculptural dividers in the guest rooms and also as protagonist in other areas of the hotel. I love the whole juxtaposition of the old and new!

KITCHEN LOVE

There is a growing trend in kitchen design ruled  by minimalism and innovative storage solutions. Unlike classic kitchens, the modern versions usually do without top cabinets or simply replace them for some sort of open-shelf unit. This serene kitchen, designed by Danish company Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri, is a gorgeous example of this trend. I do love the idea of a simpler kitchen, although I know it's not optimal when space is an issue. Are you loving the trend, or not so much? Have a phenomenal weekend!

SPRING CLEANING TIME

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I guess because it's a time for renewal and for getting our homes ready for the warmer seasons. While attempting to do some Spring cleaning I came across these old frames I had bought a few months back. So in order to spruce things up a bit I decided to take them out of seclusion and give them a fresh new look. With couple of paint testers and blue tape I created some cool looking artwork for my bedroom wall. You can see the whole process and how great they turned out here.

DESIGNING WITH COLOR

This magnificent flat in the heart of Madrid uses color details beautifully to create a design story. Interior designer Pablo Paniagua remodeled the seventies apartment to open up the existing floor plan in order to make the space brighter and airier. There's no doubt it was the right decision to be able to create the perfect canvas to combine objects and furniture of different eras and styles. Pablo also used color only through artwork and accessories to inject visual impact and energy to each the rooms and to ccompliment the minimalist architecture of his gorgeous apartment.

THROUGH THE LENSE OF: STELLAN HERNER

I can't recall experiencing a Winter as harsh and snowy as the one that's about to depart. Nor have I been so excited about the arrival of Spring as much as I'm today. Although we've already started getting a hint of the new season in the air, I can't wait for it to arrive tomorrow and stay for good. These beautiful and refreshing images by photographer Stellan Herner bring about that airy and warm feeling that Spring is all about. So to officially give a big welcome to sunnier days and blooming trees I felt her work would inspire us all to freshen up our homes for springtime.
