FIFTY SHADES OF WHITE

White is more than just plain white. Like many colors in the paint swatch book, white comes in a variety of shades and tones. There are cool whites with blue and/or gray undertones and then there are those delicious creamy whites with yellowish undertones. Some people feel an all-white room can look stark and uninviting, but you can create the opposite effect by layering different tonalities of white to create interest and dimension in a space. This early 1900's four-storey house in south London does this beautifully by using a nice range of whites throughout creating a delightful and welcoming ambiance. Granted, the amazing light in this home plays an important role in bringing out the different tonalities of this amazing color.

HIGH AND MIGHTY

Although white seems to be the color of choice in this fabulous Stockholm penthouse, it doesn't feel cold at all. The beautiful rustic tile floors, the wooden architectural details and the eclectic collection of furniture adds enough warmth to this attic apartment. Besides, this big white canvas opens up the possibilities to any decor style. It's fantastic. Happy weekend!

A STUDY IN CONTRAST

If you're a social media junkie, then you've probably tried your hand at Tumblr. And if you've ever wondered how the company's young founder and CEO lives then you're in for a treat. The New York Times T Magazine recently published David Karp's newly renovated Williamsburg, Brooklyn loft, giving us peek into the high-tech design leader's crib. Contrary to what everyone would expect, his loft is not futuristic and high-techy at all. As a matter of fact his style leans more towards the old and rugged—hence the exposed bricks, reclaimed wood and weather concrete in this amazing home. Actually, it's quite fascinating to see the contrast between his two worlds. By the way, you can learn more about David style and his home here. Happy weekend!

INDUSTRIAL BONES

I always feel the true essence of a place should survive any renovation, especially when talking about old homes. If anything, it adds character and interest to the transformed space. I think it's pretty neat how these Amsterdam dwellers left industrial traces from the original building to be part of their new home's look. The original steel beams and ceiling create a interesting contrast with their more relaxed and rustic decor. Also, by using wood throughout they softened the austere feel of the industrial bones, adding warmth and coziness to the house.

WITH FASHION IN MIND

Inspired by the strong graphic style of fashion designers Rick Owens and Damir Doma, fashion stylist Sofia Ragnwald Odier and fashion photographer Nils Odier renovated this old farmhouse into a sleek country home for their family. They decided to replace their big city life in Stockholm, with a quiter and more relaxing lifestyle in the countryside to be in touch with nature and offer their kids more space to live and play. Their mostly black and white decor is offset by beautiful wooden furnishings and an collection of whimsical accessories that add that glimpses of their personalities to the home.

THE POWER OF BLACK

I've always had a crush with the color black. Probably for it's strong and bold presence among other colors in the spectrum. It's such an easy hue to work with since it's one of the few colors that tie everything together in a room. Whether used as an accent or as the primary color in interiors, black always conveys sophistication and modernism. This sharp-looking house is one of the properties shown in Housing Fair Finland. I love the fact they used black as the predominant color in this home's decor. Although some might feel it makes it look impersonal and cold, the addition of wood furnishings throughout adds the right touch of warmth to each of the rooms. By the way, I would have never thought of painting the ceiling black, but I applaud them for such a bold move. Quite the stunner!

A LIVING GALLERY

The rich mix of styles from different periods and places is what makes this stunning Brussels house so special. Actually, it is a home/gallery with a decor that changes every so often depending on the owners' need to exhibit new incoming pieces. The Ampersand House and Gallery is a place where to be creative and constantly experiment with design. Although mostly a modernist decor, eclecticism reigns in this home.

FARMHOUSE CHIC

The weekend is finally here and I'm getting ready to go upstate to check on a project I've been working on for the last few months (a very exciting project I will be sharing with you down the line). We'll be spending the night at our friend's beautiful country house, what sort of inspired me to feature this sweet, turn-of-the-century farmhouse. Every room is classically rustic where white and soft natural tones intermingle with the rich textures of wood and leather—creating an exciting feeling and a wonderful mix. The perfect setting for a relaxing weekend. Have a great one!
