IN THE MOOD FOR SPRING

Last year on my trip to Copenhagen, I visited, among many gorgeous spaces, this stunning apartment set up like a gallery/showroom right in the middle of the city. I have to say it was quite the treat. You might remember it from a post I did featuring The Apartment in all its glory. A few days back, I was pleasantly greeted by an email from its Co-founder and Creative Director Tina Seidenfaden Busck with pictures of the space newly decorated for Spring with the most amazing furnishings. I'm particularly enamored with the bench by Ilse Crawford (above) they've recently introduced in their kitchen. Come on, that tall back is to die for. Don't you think? Luckily, most the pieces in their beautifully curated vignettes are for sale in their site.

A FRENCH LOVE STORY

Do you believe in love at first sight? That's exactly what happened to the Norwegian designer Steinar Berg-Olsen and his partner Mark when they drove by this 1910 abandoned mansion in the French countryside. When the couple took over the house they found inspiration in its former glory and gave it a much needed facelift. Most of the furniture and accessories they used to create these beautiful vignettes are pieces they have collected along the years. I can't say enough nice things about this place. I'm quite fascinated with it. Happy weekend!

A PEACEFUL SPACE

The ultimate simplicity of Finnish design is what makes this airy country home a peaceful and tranquil environment. Homeowner Ulla Koskinen, designer for Finnish firms like Marimekko and Artek, worked alongside her husband to create this magnificent open-layout floorplan for their home—where they both live and work. Using concrete, wood and glass, combined with mostly a gray and black palette, they achieved a very clean yet rustic feel. Much of the wood used in the construction came from fallen trees around the property. "The best thing about living here is the wide-open space, the peaceful feeling and the calming views. And that we are now more aware and sensitive to change of seasons,” explained Ulla to Nuevo Estilo.

A DREAMY FLAT TO CALL HOME

It doesn't matter from which angle you look at this Parisian flat, you can find the touch of a designer (or two) behind its stunning design. Patrick Gilles & Dorothée Boissier, who run an architecture and design studio, have renovated this 19th-century apartment into their dream home. Through the transformation, they saved all the original glory the apartment had and brought into play, to contrast, they're modern design concept. The artwork is to die for, especially how it's randomly placed throughout the space. Of course, a lot of the furniture we see here was designed by the talented duo to make sure it fit their impeccable taste. Thank you Yatzer for enlightining us with this beauty.

IN PERFECT HARMONY

I'm always curious to find out where and how other design bloggers live, and today I'm letting you in my latest find. This darling flat belongs to fellow blogger Desiree from Vosges Paris. A Parisian stylist, painter and DIY'er living in Amsterdam, Desiree is in constant search of the perfect harmony between her love for French grays and Scandinavian white. “It's a cliche to say you can find inspiration everywhere around you but I think there is something true about it”, she explains. “I guess it is  all about what you do with it. If I come across something I like, I can use it some other time in combination with a new find”. She has a great eye for mixing pieces and styles, which she uses splendidly to tell stories in charming vignettes throughout her home. Thank you Desiree for sharing your place and inspiring us all with your splendid sense of style.

A BACHELOR PAD LIKE NO OTHER

This is not your typical bachelor pad. To the contrary. This Berlin rather spacious pied-à-terre is home to landscape architect Guido Hager when he's visiting the German capital from his home base in Zurich. The apartment is at the fourth floor of an historic building with alluring vistas of the city's charming local streets. Although the apartment was in need of complete renovation, Guido was ultimately captivated by the amount of wall space where he could display his brightly-colored art collection. I'm glad he kept the ornate details of the lofty ceilings as it adds a beautiful contrast to his minimalist and modern decor.

A BRIGHT DELIGHT

I'm looking forward to the weekend, so I'm very happy Friday is finally here (can't you see the big grin on my face?). Like weekends, color also has the same effect on most people—it certainly does for me. Here's a wonderful weekend treat from our friends Down Under at The Design Files who featured this creative and colorful one-bedroom loft of arhitect Rodney Eggleston from March Studio. The open-layout apartment uses simple materials like plywood, pegboard and concrete to create an effortless design style. Color was also key in making this home a fun and bright delight. Happy weekend!

A HIDDEN TREASURE

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this staggering display of clothes was not a fabulous boutique, but a master bedroom turned into a office/closet combo in this extraordinary home in Malmö, Sweden. Fancy ceiling woodwork combined with a meticulously curated mix of furnishings (even pieces from IKEA) make this flat a unique place to live. The apartment was decorated with a great sense of humor and inspiration from different design styles—like the English-library-inspired dining room with unexpected dark green walls. Triple love!
