THE BLACK HERITAGE BARN

Hey dear friends, I know it's been a while since I last sat down in front of my computer to write a post, but to be tell you the truth the last couple of months have been a little crazy. Needless to say I haven't had the time or energy to find cool stuff to write about :( God knows I've missed it. I can't believe it's already November!! Where has the time gone?! Anyhow, I felt it was time to get back in the swing of things and continue sharing doses of inspiration for y'all, especially with the Holidays fast approaching. Right? So let's get to it. Being that today is Monday, I thought this dreamy barn renovation from the Czech Republic would be the perfect burst of inspiration to start the week of. The amazing transformation was done by Oooox design firm with the utmost level of coolness and fabulosity. I'm loving how a minimalistic approach works so well for a countryside retreat. Despite is restrained color palette, the Boooox Heritage Barn still feel warm and inviting. By the way it feels good to be back!

SLEEPING IN THE PAST

The opportunity of staying in a Middle Age monastery doesn't come along very often, especially in one that has been gorgeously transformed into a luxurious hotel. "What we wanted for Fontevraud was not the classic hotel and restaurant experience, but something unique; a journey between tradition and modernity that reinterprets the story of Saint-Lazare for the future, marrying emotion, sensual pleasure and poetry," explained designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku of Agence Jouin Manku who steer headed the stunning renovation. With a simple palette of wood, metal and fabrics the creative duo created a serene atmosphere that complements and brings forth the history of the building. Simply put, this hotel is a heavenly place to kick back and relax.

DANISH HOSPITALITY

It's no secret that Danes have an exquisite taste in design, and that their hotels are no exception to this rule. The recently opened Hotel SP34 is one of the newest additions to the impressive line up of design hotels in Copenhagen. The hotel, formerly known as Hotel Fox, was completely revamped by architect/designer Morten Hedegaard into a chic 118-room boutique hotel. Designed with the staple Nordic aesthetic, the hotel is decorated in a soothing grey and white palette with deliciously warm details in wood and leather. No doubt Hotel SP34 should be on the top of anyone's list traveling to the Danish capital any time soon.

A GENDER NEUTRAL LOFT

I can't get enough of the beautifully serene color palette of this 1860 loft in SoHo, New York . Its soft neutral colors flow from room to room creating a harmonious and soothing ambiance. The whole renovation and design story was conceived by British interior design firm Ochre, known for their exquisite attention to proportions, use of luxurious materials and matchless craftsmanship. One might relate these soft hues with feminine interiors, but by mixing in metal, wood and clean-line pieces they made it a gender neutral home. It is absolutely to dye for!

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.
