KITCHEN LOVE

There is a growing trend in kitchen design ruled  by minimalism and innovative storage solutions. Unlike classic kitchens, the modern versions usually do without top cabinets or simply replace them for some sort of open-shelf unit. This serene kitchen, designed by Danish company Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri, is a gorgeous example of this trend. I do love the idea of a simpler kitchen, although I know it's not optimal when space is an issue. Are you loving the trend, or not so much? Have a phenomenal weekend!

HEART TO RESIST

To celebrate this day of love and friendship I thought this sweet wooden board in the shape of a heart by Orphan Socks would be the right treat for the occasion. I hope you have a love-filled day in the company of your sweetheart and closest friends. Happy Valentine's Day and a fantastic weekend!

A GREAT NEW ADDITION

When it comes to renovating a kitchen, IKEA, in my humble opinion, is by far your best bet. Ever since I started my love affair with IKEA, I've designed all my kitchens (and even those of my clients) with their fabulous METOD cabinets. They're great fun to design with and truly not very hard to install. But the talent of IKEA never seizes to amaze me. I'm beyond excited they're expanding their already fantastic kitchen system by introducing METOD — a brand new line which is simply to die for. With new cabinet sizes, different door choices and accessories, METOD gives you endless possibilities to design the stylish kitchen you've always wanted. What I love most about this new kitchen line is it's versatility and sleek features. I can't wait to see it in person.

AN EYE FOR MODERNISM

It doesn't take long to realize there's a design aficionado living in this mid century modern haven. Well, actually two. Designed by architect Edward Fickett, this is the California home of renowned photographer Jonn Coolidge and his partner and ceramist Warner Walcott. Every single piece of furniture, accessories and lighting fixtures is exquisitely curated — some even brought through eBay. The couple's love for style and design doesn't only come through in their work, but also in their beautiful home.

GUEST STYLE

Who says small can't be cool? This fabulous guesthouse in Denmark has all you can ask for a conformable and stylish weekend in the country. The 53 square-foot annex was beautifully designed by Martin Degener Architect outside of Copenhangen. I'm quite certain the lucky guests staying in this chic retreat will enjoy all the amenities one can dream of and more. Happy weekend!

NATURE INSPIRED

Imagine finding a gutted warehouse in the middle of Paris as a blank canvas to created the loft of your dreams. Then hiring interior architect Grégoire De Lafforest to transform 1,100 square feet of space into the most amazingly playful loft ever. The result is right in front of your eyes. There are now words to describe how fun and imaginative this 2-bedroom apartment is. Can we talk about that adorable kitchen set inside a green house? I mean, it that's not clever I don't know what is. Every inch of this space is filled with special details that are simply genius. I mean, having an actual tree in the middle of the living room is not the first thing that comes to mind when decorating your home. Or is it? I'm totally drooling.

LOCAL MATTER

This past Sunday was such a gorgeous day we took a drive upstate to get away from the city—at least for a few hours. Of course we also took advantage of the day trip to search for some of those wonderful hidden treasures the Hudson Valley has to offer. And what a treasure we found as we walked into Materia Locus (Latin for local matter) — this amazing barn-turned-showroom/gallery with a beautiful collection of furniture, lighting, art and the most incredible industrial antiques from the area. Megan Summerville and Matt Ensner merged their expertise in fashion, movement arts, environmental conservation and landscape design to create this artists' co-op and home design store “born out of their quest for specialized objects that compliment and highlight their eclectic approach to living.” It was truly an unexpected treat to come across this new gem, especially after chit chatting with Megan for a while and getting to know a little bit about them and their cool design vision.

A WISH COME TRUE

My little Frenchie Oliver has always dreamt of having a little dog house, but living in a 500 square-foot NYC apartment hasn't giving me the chance to grant his wish. But, this adorable dog house set by Six Hands might just do the trick. The house/bed combo is made of Douglas Fir Plywood and a comfy Natural Cotton Canvas. Although both pieces can be bought separately, Oliver thinks they're the cutest when put together. Don't you agree?
