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!

NOTHING FISHY ABOUT THIS HOME

It sure takes a certain dose of imagination to be able to turn an old fisherman's cottage into a magnificent home like this one in a coastal town not far from Copenhagen. Between old and new, the medley of furniture is fantastic. The neutral color scheme—with sprinkles of red, copper and wood—hightens the warmth of the place. And what about that stunning concrete floor? I love how beautifully the dark tones they used accentuates the rich textures of the furniture. Happy weekend!

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!

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.

TELLING A STORY THROUGH ART

How would you like start your week by taking a short trip to Mexico City? The trek might be worth just to visit the charming restaurant Malamén. Located in the trendy neighborhood of Polanco, the eatery was designed by Ricardo Casas Design Office with one of the most fun collection of memorabilia and wall art I've seen in a while. It's very interesting the way they created different visual stories in every single wall vignette which give the restaurant a homey and eclectic flair. It looks like a delightful place to grab a bite to eat.

ECLECTIC AND MAGICAL

Home is where the heart is, and for British artist and designer Rory Dobner this amazing place is where he loves to live and work. His love for everything vintage played a key role when it came to decorating his home in a rather peculiar and eclectic style. Sumptuous materials like cashmere, mohair and velvets, and gemstone colors like rubies, emeralds and topaz give a rich look to the home. Of course, no artist pad would be complete without the personal touches of his own art. Rory's whimsical artwork adds the final touches to this already magical dwelling.
