POETIC LICENSE

It's Friday!! so join me on a trip across the Atlantic to take a quick tour of the stunning home of creative couple Virginine Denny and Alfonso Vallès where they both live and work. When I saw it, it immediately captivated me. I mean, what's not to love about it? Besides being in my all-time favorite city, Paris, its interiors are simply poetic. Of course, it also helps that these stunning images by photographer Petra Bindel, styled by Emma Persson Lagerberg, truly captured the industrial beauty of what once was a button factory. The fusion of styles and casual design is spot on. Love, love, love all the phenomenal artwork and the spontaneous use of typography as decorating elements throughout the place. It's a smart and inexpensive way of adding an element of surprise and character to any room. I think I'm going to be dreaming about this place tonight. Have a superb weekend!

A SHINNING EXAMPLE

Yaaay, Spring has officially arrived!! 'Tis the season for brighter and extended daylight, warmer weather and a renewed sense of style. So let's welcome this rejuvenating time of year by taking a tour of this sunlit, 2-bedroom flat in Stockholm, Sweden. These 800 square-feet of glowing charm beautifully embody what this season is all about: a refreshing, invigorating, joyful and crisp vibe. I'm loving how effortless the decor happens to be, yet it has a warm and inviting ambiance that makes me want to lounge in that dreamy daybed.

MY DESIGN ADDICTION

I never get tired of gushing over impeccable Scandinavian interiors. You know, I sort of have a weakness for this style. There's something so sexy about it that it's rather addictive. It's unreal how all these homes have flawless white floors—I guess it's almost part of their DNA. This particular flat, photographed by Copenhagen-based photographer , is home to Britt Marie Hørsted which he shares with his girlfriend and kid. The place is filled with great pieces of furniture, art and loads of personal touches. I'm totally crazy about the amazing batch of mid-century chairs they have all over. They almost become sculptural pieces in every room.

STAPLE MINIMALISM

These exceptional rooms are simply to die for. They're part of the impressive body of work of French architect and designer Joseph Dirand, famous for his minimalist designs and restrained color palette. By using simple yet strong lines and as few as three colors (black, gray and white), Dirand is a genius at creating powerful design stories in his spaces. There is no need to say much more, just take in the dignified beauty of these habitats.

LIVING ARTMONIOUSLY

Living in this striking, modern home must be like living inside your own art gallery. Designed by architect Pedro Ribeiro Pita, the house is located in one of the most privileged spots in the province of Cadiz, Spain. The impressive art installations and collection of contemporary paintings magnifies the clean and simple lines of its bones. It's quite clear that art is what matters here—some pieces were even designed specifically for the space—and at times becomes part of the wall and ceilings like in the main stairwell of the house. On the other hand, the furniture and decor is comfortable and timeless and takes a secondary role so it doesn't compete with the beauty of the artwork.

DELICIOUS PANTONE

If you have a sweet tooth like me and an adoration for beautiful photography, you're going to fall head over heels in love with these delicious Pantone Tarts by French artistic director Emilie de Morello. Her passion for food, color and photography inspired her to create Griottes, an amazing blog where she shares her recipes and other things from around the kitchen with the most original and creative images. As we all know, the first thing that attracts us to food is the way it looks and is presented, and Emily truly masters this special craft. I absolutely enjoyed browsing through her amazing work, and I'm positive you will too.
