Over the weekend I stumbled upon pictures of this incredible São Paulo house on the German blog Ignant. For some reason I have always been drawn to concrete structure. Is it because my dad used to often take me to construction sites when I was a kid? Or simply because I like the raw and pure aesthetic of the material? I don’t know.
Over the weekend I discovered the baker Josey Baker through GARRETT LEIGHT’s blog and I felt very inspired by his San Francisco apartment shot by Alanna Hale. I love the color of the walls that reflect the Californian lights entering the living room through the big window; typical of the architecture of the bay’s Victorian houses. It brought up many memories from my latest trip to San Francisco last year.
This week I feel inspired by L’Appartement N°50 at Le Corbusier’s Cité Radieuse in Marseille, decorated by interior designer Pierre Charpin and photographed by Philip Savoir for the magazine Wallpaper. I just love the combination of the light wooden furniture and floors, and the colorful ceramic and glass vases. I am a huge fan of architecture and furniture design from the fifties and clearly I could spend hours obsessing over these pictures…Read more >
Last weekend I discovered Nicolas Ouchenir’s apartment on the German blog Freunde Von Freunden (photographed by Fred Lahache). The French calligrapher lives in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, in an apartment for which he found a bunch of stylish objects from the past. My favorites are this copper lamp from the 1950s and the vintage anatomical poster. What do you think of this interior?
This week’s interior inspiration is the coffee shop Snickarbacken 7 in Stockholm, photographed by Caroline Kurze for IGNANT. It also serves as an exhibition space and a concept store. Like often in the Swedish capital, it’s spacious, all white and minimalistic. Obviously, I love it! I especially like the balance between the severity of the light walls and waxed floors, and the warmth of the communal tables and dark wood chairs.
Last weekend I discovered Jessica Barensfeld and Simon Howell’s loft in Willimsburg, Brooklyn, photographed by Freunde Von Freunden. A peaceful place in a busy neighborhood, the designer/photographer couple have created such a refreshing living space. They turned the two-floor apartment previously shared by a group of friends into a place that resembles them: cosy and creative. Brick walls, massive windows, wooden furniture and a frenzie of houseplants.
This week’s interior inspiration feature is the bar at Westward Ho in Seattle featured by Remodelista. We love how the restaurant has transported the feeling of the sea and inside of a ship onto land, without making it cheesy. We saw this photo of the bar and the rustic side of the boat and immediately thought about our ‘special beard’ selection! We envisioned a seaman with a thick and long beard enjoying a cold beer at the counter…
What a treat to stumble upon architect David Baker’s San Francisco loft shot by Dwell. He doesn’t try to hide his bikes from the view and I really like that. Instead, they act as an installation of art and accent the main room. I love the high ceilings, the textured rugs and the Californian light that flows through.
