THE POWER OF BLACK

I've always had a crush with the color black. Probably for it's strong and bold presence among other colors in the spectrum. It's such an easy hue to work with since it's one of the few colors that tie everything together in a room. Whether used as an accent or as the primary color in interiors, black always conveys sophistication and modernism. This sharp-looking house is one of the properties shown in Housing Fair Finland. I love the fact they used black as the predominant color in this home's decor. Although some might feel it makes it look impersonal and cold, the addition of wood furnishings throughout adds the right touch of warmth to each of the rooms. By the way, I would have never thought of painting the ceiling black, but I applaud them for such a bold move. Quite the stunner!

FARMHOUSE CHIC

The weekend is finally here and I'm getting ready to go upstate to check on a project I've been working on for the last few months (a very exciting project I will be sharing with you down the line). We'll be spending the night at our friend's beautiful country house, what sort of inspired me to feature this sweet, turn-of-the-century farmhouse. Every room is classically rustic where white and soft natural tones intermingle with the rich textures of wood and leather—creating an exciting feeling and a wonderful mix. The perfect setting for a relaxing weekend. Have a great one!

IN TOUCH WITH NATURE

Don't you feel sometimes like taking off to a remote spot in the middle of nowhere? A peaceful location where to relax and take a break from your daily routine? Well, Hotel Magazin1 in an island off the coast of Sweden might be the ideal place to do just that. A former grain storehouse from 1934, the building now houses this charming country retreat with five very unique rooms individually designed in that Scandinavian style I simply adore. The decor is rather minimalist but with beautiful details that make each space warm and inviting. This hotel is the right place to be in touch with nature and yourself.

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.

THE PERFECT COUNTRY RETREAT

We had a rather sweltering hot weekend here in New York, with humidity levels reaching way up there and making it almost unbearable to be outside. It was the perfect weekend to spend in a breezy country home like this one, — home to stylist Kara Rosenlund. The decor in this 1890's cottage in Brisbane, Australia is a dreamy mix of shabby chic with subtle touches of modernity. I can't get enough of the beautiful neutral color palette she used to convey a sense of freshness and relaxation. Just lovely!

DESIGNING OUT OF THE BOX

The daring use of color in this restored Victorian home in Melbourne, Australia is simply to die. Architects Nick Travers and Justin Northrop from the architecture studio Techne, strategically used just the right pops of color to create a harmonious flow from room to room. Every space in the home is stunning. The playfulness in which the vivid hues were applied is brilliant, particularly against the elegant white canvas of the rooms. I give the creative duo two thumbs up for designing out the box and having fun while doing it. Happy weekend!

FAMILY MATTERS

In celebration of family, love and life BODIE and FOU commissioned one of my favorite English artist Kerry Layton to create this bold and graphic Family Hearts print as a gentle yet beautiful reminder of what is important in life: family. Each print has the phrase LA FAMILLE... C'EST IMPORTANT inscripted to remind us how dear our families are. Don't you just love it? Happy weekend!

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.
