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!

MINIMALISM THAT WORKS

Minimalism has always gotten a bad reputation especially for family living. Is thought not to be kid-friendly or even practical. But this amazing open-plan home has proven the critics wrong. This family of four manages to live comfortably with kids n a wide-open space where clutter is not part of their modus operandi. With clever room layout solutions and plenty of creativity, they've created a home to envy—a true testament that simplicity reigns!

A BRASSY COMEBACK

Metallics have always been in vogue, but usually only one dominates the market setting a shiny trend. For some time now stainless steel and platinum have been ruling the world, but after many years of being the underdog brass is swaying its way back to the top once more. I'm so glad this metal's golden tones are gleaming in the design stratosphere yet again. So here are some fun pieces that will definitely brighten up your decor while jumping on this trend. Are you glad brass is back?

DRAMATIC AND SEXY

There's always room for dark and handsome interiors in my book. Although some people might feel a dark color palette can make a room look gloomy and smaller, this sexy French home makes a good case for the opposite. The secret is in mixing different shades of gray and black to create dimension and interest in every room. In this particular abode, the use of white, cream and wood accents add the right amount of light to complement the stunning dark hues. Talk about drama!

CHARM BY THE INCH

I'm quite amazed how every single inch in this minute studio apartment in Lyon, France, has been utilized to the max without sacrificing a bit of charm or style. Conceived by design studio Maison Hand, this home feels airy and larger that its 380 square feet thanks to their clever use of white. The use of natural materials in the decor also adds the right amount of warmth and coziness to complete the look. But one of the features I love most about this lovely abode is how with simple elements like baskets and mirrors they created a whimsical focal point on the walls. Truly magnificent!

MOROCCAN REVIVAL

I love mixing decorative styles in my designs, it makes things a bit more interesting and a better design overall. Although it can be at times tricky, two completely opposite styles can merge beautifully in a room. This past weekend I came across this stunning riad in Marrakech and it simply blew my mind. With the help of French designer Romain Michel-Ménière, a British expat transformed an old home into a serene and stylish oasis for her and her mother. By seamlessly blending the traditional Moroccan architectural features from the house with a more modern and minimalist look, they were able to update the house and create a dreamy place to call home in their adoptive new city.

NORDIC CHIC DOWN UNDER

Looking at the beautiful Nordic style of this home you would think this gorg house is somewhere in Denmark or Stockholm. But I was pleasantly surprised to find out it's actually in Melbourne, Australia. With the quintessential Scandinavian color palette of black, white and gray, Whiting Architects created a stunning habitat. The occasional wooden accents around the house are the perfect touches to add warmth and spontaneity. I'm in love!
