CELEBRATING COLOR

One thing is for sure: the lucky owners of this vibrant home are not afraid of color. That's for sure! Without going overboard with their color treatment, these happy dwellers strategically scattered touches of bold hues to create a balanced palette. The use of wood throughout the house together with fields of black set the perfect stage for these colors to pop. It's a cheerful celebration of color. Happy weekend!

ART NOUVEAU MEETS MODERN ELEGANCE

Celebrating the building's 100th anniversary, the Parisian jewel Hotel Vernet underwent a jaw-dropping restoration by interior designer François Champsaur. The results: a wonderful combination of Art Nouveau and modern elegance. Besides its stylish new interiors, the hotel houses a magnificent glass ceiling designed by none other that Gustave Eiffel himself—a rather good reason to pay the staple hotel a visit. Happy travels!

They're not just pretty but sustainable too—all leftover steel is recycled and reused to maximize materials and minimize waste. I love their beautiful and streamline design!

A TINY PAD WITH A BIG PERSONALITY

It's hard to believe this gorg and functional apartment in Moscow, Russia is only 485 square feet. I have to say the design of this studio apartment is quite brilliant. The designers took advantage of every single inch of space to incorporate much needed storage solutions. Additionally, I think that raising the bedroom area on a platform was very smart: it created separation from the living room and kitchen and also extra storage space. By the way, the use of a unifying color story throughout the apartment actually makes the home look bigger than what it is. The soft pastel palette is adorable and very fun. I have a new crush!

BUILT AROUND HISTORY AND CULTURE

Formerly a homeless shelter and a strip club, The Dean hotel is the new talk of the town in Providence, Rhode Island. Built around the history and culture of Providence, this charming 52-room boutique hotel is filled with custom furniture, craftwork from local purveyors and found objects from Europe and beyond. If you happen to be in the area, The Dean is a must place to stay in, specially if you're looking for a mellow yet friendly inn. But if you're just passing by, do stop to at least partake on some serious singing in The Boombox, Providence only karaoke lounge. Happy weekend!

A LOG CABIN WITH A TWIST

The last words that come to mind when thinking about a log cabin is light and airy. But after seeing this adorable Melbourne house I must take it back. Home to stylist Simone Haag and her husband, the house was recently refurbished in a soothing Scandinavian flair — mostly decorated with a gorgeous collection of Mid-century pieces. What's not to adore about this cute love nest?
