A RUSTIC AND WHIMSICAL FARMHOUSE

I can't get over how cool this century-old farmhouse is. Located in the Netherlands, the converted farmhouse is decorated in a natural and rugged Scandinavian style with strokes of whimsy that makes it so fun. I love the rustic look of the floors and of course the way the left the original wood beams exposed and painted them to be part of their decor — a very clever solution. It looks so cozy that I wouldn't mind being there right now. Happy weekend!

BLACK MAGIC

Black is often a color not everyone falls for at first sight, especially when it comes to one's home decor. It usually takes some getting used to, but at the end it's a choice that most end up loving. There's something magical about this color that makes everything else around it pop and look super chic. The owners of this Hamburg home have used black exquisitely, especially in their kitchen. You might feel an all black kitchen is way too much, but after seeing these pictures there is a big probability you will be changing your mind — it's dramatic and quite stylish. Don't you think?

A WALL TO TALK ABOUT

There's really no excuse for having boring, empty walls in our homes, especially with the wide variety of new cool products that makes it easier to easily add a bit of glam to a room. The fab Swedish company Photowall has made it even easier for us now with their environmentally-friendly wall murals and canvas prints. Their super fun and varied collections offer a big range of motifs for every taste.They've also invited designers and illustrators to create exclusive wall mural collections that are to die for. One of my favorites is from Swedish illustrator and graphic designer Albert Sjöstam whose unique, masculine style translates into these über graphic wall coverings influenced by symbols and ethnic patterns. But if you're willing to let your creativity run wild, you can even create an original mural by submitting your favorite photo and have converted into a customized wall print or mural—and most definitely a conversation piece for your home.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

It's been a while since I've shared one of my projects with you. But to tell you the truth I've been so swamped with deadlines that I hadn't had a chance to download any of my photos. In this particular project I had to stage a two-bedroom model apartment for a new building in Brooklyn. They wanted it to look fresh and contemporary to appeal to the new trendy crowd moving into this hot neighborhood. This kind of project is lots of fun but also rather hectic because of the short amount  of time I have to put it together — from purchasing to installation I only have a few weeks. To keep it simple and sophisticated I decided to go for a soft and neutral palette with just a few splashes of color to add personality. I mixed and matched furnishings from a couple of styles that I knew would complete my original design. But for me, accessories are one of the most important details to bring life to any home. Since time was of essence, I had to buy various home accessories online which helped immensely at the end. The key is to find the right objects that will complement the other pieces of the room. From artwork to throw pillows, each accessory should add to the aesthetic value of your home. So have fun when choosing them but never forget they should always represent who you are.

A MISMATCH OF STYLES

Shabby chic is the style that best describes the lovely home of interior designer and architect Muriel Bardinet. Although it's quite hard to imagine, this serene and poetic Brussels house once was an orphanage and a busy Japanese restaurant in a past life. Muriel did a magnificent job renovating the old commercial space into this charming abode. She had to completely reconfigure the layout to create a comfortable home for her family. But what's truly lovely about her home is the spontaneous mismatch of styles she managed to design.

A CHÂTEAU LIKE NO OTHER

I've always dreamt of spending the night in a French Château, but after seeing this stunner I definitely have to make this dream come true sooner. Not your typical French country side estate, The Châteaux de la Resle has been splendidly renovated and decorated to meet the 21st century. With two guest rooms and four luxurious and spacious suites, this country retreat is a beautiful fusion between the past and the present. The exquisite blend of antiques with modern and contemporary decor generates an interesting juxtapositon of styles that gives the hotel an exclusive and sleek look.
