A TINY PARISIAN JEWEL

One really needs to get creative when space becomes a luxury. I'm amazed how this micro apartment in Paris was designed to fit everything needed to live comfortably. French design firm betillon / dorval-bory used a minimalist approach in its design where light becomes an important element to compartmentalize the space. Using white as its primary color was key in making the apartment look more spacious than it actually is. This proves that square footage doesn't actually matter that much, and it's how you take advantage of it that counts.

A FACTORY OF POSSIBILITIES

It's hard to believe this bright and impeccable dwelling was once an old factory building in Berlin's city center. After relocating from London, Eve and Gerard Ruecker were in the hunt for a quiet, light-filled oasis in the middle of the German capital —a not-so-easy find in such a urban city. But when they found this crumbling factory, they instantly fell head-over-hills in love with its charm and saw plenty of potential in it. They hired the German architectural firm Miethe+Quehl to help them transform the industrial structure into a home with the Scandinavian flair they were going for: an ultra comfortable environment with a clean and minimalist approach. After completeing the long renovation, the Rueckers got the stunning oasis the had hoped for.

A FEAST OF COLOR

As you know, it isn't easy combining different colors in any interior, but the designer of this Portuguese home was audacious enough to push the color boundaries beyond the expected. It helped to have a great foundation to make each color shine on its own, but at the same time making them all complement each other beautifully. It is quite the place to brighten up your days.

A SEASIDE HAVEN

Please, don't think I've abandoned your or my blogging duties for that matter. I've been just working tirelessly in a project that has kept me away from the keyboard. But after a week of nonstop running around I'm back in front of my computer set and ready to indulge you with a lot more design fabulosity. And what better way to resume my devoir than by showcasing this amazing villa in The Netherlands. After a much needed renovation by architectural firm Maxwan, this seaside beauty was redesigned into a modern haven with breathtaking views. Besides the vast amount of floor-to-ceiling windows, the coolest feature in the house is the spiral staircase adorned with a lace-like pattern. It adds a touch of whimsy to a rather minimalist space.

A RUSTIC SURPRISE

It really doesn't take much to create a peaceful environment for your home. This charming flat in Stockholm is a perfect example of how simplicity combined with great taste can do a lot. They used the bones of apartment to highlight its beautiful original architecture. Their neutral color palette is enhanced by sprinkles of peacock blue spontaneously scattered around their home. But the most amazing feature in this Scandinavian home is the distressed pair of doors that lead to the bedroom—they add a cool rustic surprise to a very impeccably clean decor.

THE POWER OF BLACK & WHITE

There's nothing more pure and beautiful than the use of black and white in interiors. Although it's a very basic color palette, this two colors make a dynamic duo when placed in the same room. I recently came across Universal Blueprint and I spend quite some time drooling over the exquisite curation of their Tumblr page. Since I don't like keeping great finds to myslef, I thought I'd entice you to pay their site a visit with a few of the heart-stopping images that caught my eye. Enjoy!!

A FRENCH LOVE STORY

Do you believe in love at first sight? That's exactly what happened to the Norwegian designer Steinar Berg-Olsen and his partner Mark when they drove by this 1910 abandoned mansion in the French countryside. When the couple took over the house they found inspiration in its former glory and gave it a much needed facelift. Most of the furniture and accessories they used to create these beautiful vignettes are pieces they have collected along the years. I can't say enough nice things about this place. I'm quite fascinated with it. Happy weekend!
