A PRECIOUS PARISIAN JEWEL

It's hard to believe this fabulosity-packed apartment is only 430 square feet. Home to interior designer Charlotte Vauvillier, this Parisian flat is tastefully decorated with a delicious mix of mid-century pieces and custom made furniture. One of its amazing features is the clean and clever storage solutions in the living area. But of course, that gorgeous kitchen is the pièce de résistance with that amazing floor tile and stunning gray, yellow and blue color combo. Undoubtedly, Charlotte lives in a small jewel worth drooling for. Wouldn't you say? Happy weekend!

FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

I can't get enough of this sweet apartment in St. Petersburg, Russia. It's design is an fresh interpretation of Scandinavian tradition mixed with mid-century modern minimalism by Russian architectural firm Int2. White walls and neutral floors are background to a soft palette of pastel like coral, blue, pearl gray, creating an atmosphere of warmth and coziness. But, of course, the best part of this flat is the its simplicity and beautiful attention to details.

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!

A LOG CABIN WITH A TWIST

The last words that come to mind when thinking about a log cabin is light and airy. But after seeing this adorable Melbourne house I must take it back. Home to stylist Simone Haag and her husband, the house was recently refurbished in a soothing Scandinavian flair — mostly decorated with a gorgeous collection of Mid-century pieces. What's not to adore about this cute love nest?

A LIVING GALLERY

The rich mix of styles from different periods and places is what makes this stunning Brussels house so special. Actually, it is a home/gallery with a decor that changes every so often depending on the owners' need to exhibit new incoming pieces. The Ampersand House and Gallery is a place where to be creative and constantly experiment with design. Although mostly a modernist decor, eclecticism reigns in this home.

AN EYE FOR MODERNISM

It doesn't take long to realize there's a design aficionado living in this mid century modern haven. Well, actually two. Designed by architect Edward Fickett, this is the California home of renowned photographer Jonn Coolidge and his partner and ceramist Warner Walcott. Every single piece of furniture, accessories and lighting fixtures is exquisitely curated — some even brought through eBay. The couple's love for style and design doesn't only come through in their work, but also in their beautiful home.

MODERN-CLASSIC LOVE

If you're a mid-century modern aficionado like moi, then you know how hard it is to find great pieces at prices that won't break the bank. At times, this can be a frustrating task. But with a growing demand for this timeless style, amazing reproductions are being manufactured so close to the originals that you have to be an expert to tell them apart. I'm always in the lookout for these classic beauties since they add a touch of modernity to any decor without trying so hard. I recently found, Exclusive Mod, a new wonderful online resource that offers a great —and affordable— collection of modern reproductions. So if you happen to be in the market for a Verner Panton style chair or an Arne Jacobsen Egg chair (among many others), then you're in luck. Our friends at Exclusive Mod are extending our readers a unique discount coupon worth 25% off their purchase. It's siimple: just remember to use coupon code DESIGNERPAD25 at checkout. Shop away!

AN IMPRESSIVE COLLECTION

After making the decision to sell her Chelsea loft and Hamptons beach house in order to spend time traveling, stylist/photographer Anita Calero just sold part of her impressive collection of mid-century treasures in 20th Century Decorative Arts & Design sale at Christie’s. I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Calero at a photo shoot a few years back in her live/work loft, and I remember being in complete awe of how exquisitely styled her pad was. It was almost as being in the coolest museum where I just wanted to touch everything. I'm sure her new home would be as gorgeous as this one was.
