A Show Stopper

This 1930s hunting lodge in Wilton, Connecticut, has been gorgeously transformed into a contemporary home by Amsterdam’s UXUS Design firm. While maintaining the classic American style and paying homage to the heritage of this 2,339 square-feet house, the designers used an unexpected fusion of American and European design inspired by rustic luxury. The lodge is filled with fun and amazing pieces like my all time favorite Dear Ingo lamp by Moooi (in white) in the foyer. The colors used are soft and quiet, except for the deliberate injection of orange to add some spark to the space. Altogether, this chic hunting lodge is most definitely a show stopper! Don't you agree?

Color Fest

I love traveling. Besides getting away to relax, visit new places and experience other cultures, for me it's a great source of inspiration. One of the things that caught my eye in my recent trip to Isla Mujeres, a little island off the coast of Mexico, is how Mexicans are not afraid of color. To the contrary, they embrace it and make it part of their everyday life. Everywhere I would turn there was an explosion of bright and happy hues of orange, yellow, pinks, blues, greens and so on. Here are some pictures of my island travels to give you a taste of this wonderful color fest. Enjoy!

A Small Parisian Jewel

As you know, good things come in small packages, like this 540 square-feet Parisian flat designed by interior architects Manuel and Agnes Bonnemazou Cambus from Element. The original layout was compartmentalized and poorly distributed, the reason why the two roommates who share the pad sought professional guidance to help them maximize their tiny space. Every inch of the apartment has been optimized by incorporating custom storage that keeps the pad clutter-free and only leaves the essential objects visible. Color was also key in making the apartment look more spacious. With a palette ranging from purple and blue to gray and taupe, the designers played with contrast to create depth. Another neat solution was to divide the living and sleeping areas by raising the hallway floor. Like I always say, space should never stop you from living très chic. Happy weekend :)
