A Modern Design Project in the South of France

Quiet House in France

On a small plot of land, sandwiched between a vineyard shed, a driveway, and a main street, the Quiet House is a project by Artelabo in a village in the south of France. With its tight locale, along with consistent winds, the design proved a challenge and consisted of creating privacy among the chaos. That led to a home that turned inward and to the incredible valley views below.

New In: Interiors | Neo-Classical Meets Modern


Interior MA is a wonderful compact apartment design of only 55 square meters by INT2 Architecture, located in a house built before the Revolution in Moscow, Russia. French neo-classical elements are seen throughout this small space, white walls, high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling walls, parquet flooring, plaster cornices, wood shutters. The white walls work perfectly for reflecting light throughout the interiors and highlights the proportions of the room, showcasing clean lines. A minimalist black box in the space houses rooms with technical purposes (toilets, boiler room, kitchen) and storage (laundry, closet for clothing and shoes). It is situated in the center of the room, around the main functional area, the open plan kitchen and dining area with a four meters long island, a bar and lounge space with leather furnishings, bio fireplace and projector as well as a bedroom with work space.

The herringbone pattern on the wood flooring makes the space feel luxurious and warm. The modern elements of the interior contrasts with the materials and style of classic architectural features of the walls and flooring. At the same time they seem to complement each other quite well. The home exudes character and personality, creating a whole incredibly designed architectural space.

I’m really loving the art featured by the homeowner!


New in: Interiors | A Venture Into The Vintage Glam Home

the vintage glam 1

I’ve always been interested in tiny house living, when I first saw a book about it a couple years ago before it was even mainstream. The thought of downsizing and owning only what you truly needed to live, being able to move your house wherever you wanted appealed to me. I did love the minimal aspect of it. Today’s tiny houses are so creative, there is no limit to what you can build.

Created by Tiny Heirloom for a Portland couple, Ben and Callie, the Vintage Glam Home is a sleek and sophisticated tiny house that allows them the freedom and mobility they enjoy.

Built on a 33′ gooseneck trailer, this 200 sq.ft tiny house comes with heated hardwood floors, a living plant wall, bathroom skylights, and a multi-functional platform that will include living, sleeping, and dining quarters. The kitchen includes granite counter-tops, white cabinets with dark handles, and a farm sink. The counter-tops and all white interior is what drew me to this space.

Would you consider living in a tiny home?


New in: Interiors | Small Scandinavian Apartment


New week and what better way to start it than with a nice Scandinavian apartment. What this apartment lacks in size makes up for in room opening industrial glass doors. This grey toned apartment is also styled by Scandinavian Homes, as you can see in some of the decor details throughout the entire home. It’s such a beautiful light-filled space!

Lite And Cycle Featured Image

(Lite and Cycle Lavender Candle, $78)

Artist and designer Kristi Head created Lite + Cycle in 2013 with the intention of harnessing the aromas  of the wild to create genuinely pure scents and beautiful, functional designs. Applying her love of elegant aesthetics, belief in nature’s intelligence, and stubborn commitment to purity standards, Kristi creates refined products that nurture body and spirit.

Lite and Cycle’s signature geometric pattern is a modern take on the mandala, a spiritual and symbolic representation of the universe that, according to Carl Jung, signifies to the whole self striving for harmony. The open negative space at the center represents a quiet point of focus — the light.
