MINIMALISM THAT WORKS

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.

LIVING SMALL BUT IN STYLE

With mere 226 square feet of space, this tiny Madrid apartment has stretched its diminutive size to the max. The narrow 100m3 apartment was designed by Studio MYCC, who maximized every single inch available. They were able to ”accommodate several pieces, which are limited in volume but at the same time all are visually connected to each other. Even the bathroom is within sight.” Its simple and spare decor also helps to visually enlarge this urban shelter. It's amazing what they did.

A PASSIONATE DECOR

His profound passion for architecture, music and fashion has evidently been an influence in Danish fashion designer David Andersen's home. His slick yet rustic pad is filled with amazing show-stopping pieces, like the fab African antelope taxidermy above the fireplace and the stunning tripod floor lamp in the living room. They add a bit of raw and industrial vibe to the minimalist home. Although David's palette of choice for the decor is mostly black and white (a man after my own heat), a subtle sprinkle of hot pink made its way on to the legs of the dining room table—a fun touch of adding an element of surprise. Double sigh!!

A KNACK FOR LIGHTING

I'm totally having a crush on these gorgeous lamps designed and handcrafted by artist and woodworker Ryden Rizzo. His lighting fixtures, sold at Allied Maker, are beautifully made by him in his Sea Cliff, NY studio. I personally love their simple yet elegant design and the perfectly balanced proportion between wood and metal. To me they're almost pieces of art. Happy weekend!

WHITE NIGHTS

A 17h century mansion in the historic center of Maastricht, the Netherlands, was transformed into this beautifully chic design hotel. The Zenden Hotel offers four different rooms and studios, all decorated in the most minimalist style where white dominates each space. The decor, although spare, includes pieces from Vitra with bathroom fixtures from Alessi. The clean and basic feel of the interiors play a strong contrast to the building's historic and ornate architecture of the city's architecture.

SUMMER WHITES

It took five years of meticulous renovating to transform a former 1920s schoolhouse into this magnificent Summer home in southern Sweden. The refurbished house has a timeless decor with an unmistakably personal touch. White walls reflect the shifting daylight that pours through the oversized floor-to-ceiling windows — perfect to contemplate the breathtaking views and roaming deer.
