SOUTHERN MODERNISM

Wanting to recreate the feeling of their previous home, the owners of this spectacular abode commissioned revered interior designer Barbara Hill to renovate their traditional 1920s Mediterranean house in Atlanta, Georgia. By stripping down most of the original ornamentation, Hill was able to create a blank canvas where to conceive these pristine and magical spaces. This represents everything Hill's style is all about: incorporating pieces from different eras and amazing artwork to compliment them.

A CITY JEWEL 

I remember seeing this amazing space in photographer Richard Powers' online portfolio and immediately falling head over heels for it. I was left craving more and started wondering what the rest of the apartment would look like. To my surprise and viewing pleasure, Contemporist recently featured the whole place on their site. The fabulous loft is prestigiously located in NoHo, one of New York's trendiest and coolest neighborhoods. Its pristine and impeccable interiors were designed by Studio MDA. Their “approach was to curate gallery-like vistas in the living areas and separate the sleeping spaces to allow its own identity and privacy”. The space is unreal and the decor, although a tad over the top, is superb—especially the touches of gold here and there. Thank you Contemporist for satisfying my curiosity.

WHITE SPLENDOR

This spectacular and well-preserved Barcelona flat is anyone's dream come true. With captivating purity, lightness and inviting serenity, the immaculate interiors embrace the stunning detailing on the wall and ceilings. The owners did a phenomenal job of maintaining the essence and personality of the place by carefully restoring the original mosaic floors, windows and gorgeous arched doors that connect the living spaces. The strong architectural elements, high ceilings, simplicity and smart mix of elements from the past and present is what defines the identity of this breathtaking Catalonian home. All that glorious white... double sigh!

A NORDIC VIBE

This optimally planned apartment in popular Vasastan, Stockholm is a ray of sunshine. The 670 square-feet pad is quite bright and airy with a decor on point with that dreamy Nordic vibe. Overall, the place shows off a minimalist yet soothing style with obvious touches of personal charm. Despite the serene look, each room says a lot about its owners without trying too hard. You can tell every single piece they used was carefully selected and placed. I particularly love how the richness of the wood furniture glows and brings warmth to the soft color palette.

SPANISH SPLENDOR

Please, come right in and take a tour of this stunning Madrid penthouse. An impressive semi-circular wall of floor-to-ceiling windows frames the modish living room decorated with mid-century modern treasures. This Spanish pad combines color and art seamlessly—by no means the owner of this sweet apartment is intimidated by color. She really has outdone herself by spontaneously using bright and saturated tones to unify the decor of this top-floor haven.

TRÈS COOL

“Your home defines who you are, and who you want to be,” proclaims fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. And I second that way of thinking. Through decor and artwork you can easily infuse your personality and style in your home. This Parisian flat is no exception to the rule. It's the striking artwork by young artists that provides a perfect framework for this eclectic home in the French capital. An open floor plan houses the kitchen, the dining room and lounge area, all surrounded by bold and fun pieces of art that most certainly make a statement about the owners. I truly belief artwork should reflect your spirit and not just something to fill your walls with. You honestly can do it without breaking the bank. All you need is a little imagination.

SIMPLE BLISS

Light, air and space are the main ingredients in the home of Danish interior designer Tina Offshore Wind. The result is this fresh and sun-drenched first floor apartment in a villa north of Copenhagen, which she shares with her husband, son and adorable pet rabbit Thumper. There is a simple aesthetic comfort to it that I simply love, particularly the subdued color palette that's very representative of her design style: earth tones, gray, white rose with wooden touches. And for course, her selective use of furniture is perfect. Everything is carefully selected and placed so that each piece of furniture has enough breathing room around it, creating a very relaxing ambiance.

LIGHT AND MODERN

Here we go again. Another week starts and I'm all pumped up to continue working on a project that's almost completed and start planning for a new home office I'm about start. But before I get too busy with my to-do list, I want to share with you this gorg home in Houston, Texas. Right in the middle of the city's artsy district, and only minutes away from the Museum of Contemporary Art, the modern abode is drenched in natural light and exquisite sophistication. With a balanced mix of new and vintage pieces, the decor is right up my alley. And to reflect the spirit of the neighborhood, the owners have proudly displayed their small art collection in strategic places in every room. Isn't it sensational?
