There are some interiors that you see cropping up time and again on Tumblr and Pinterest – usually because they’re just so good or interesting that they strike a chord – and this apartment in Paris is one of them. I’ve posted and reblogged images of this space myself on my other blog, and the image above that showcases a large scale photograph of a horse by Steven Klein is one of my favourite interior photos of late.

Every so often you come across a place so gorgeous that one mention just isn’t enough. I first noticed this house online back in April while searching for international properties for sale to feature on my previous blog, and I posted about it then as it was too good to resist.

This project has been a favourite of mine for some time – indeed, since I first laid eyes on the images on another site. This dramatically redesigned townhouse in Chelsea in NYC has had its fair share of online coverage (see these posts on HomeDSGN, Afflante and Freshome for starters) so why feature it here?

The kitchen in this apartment in Mantua in Italy has to be one of my favourite kitchens that I’ve come across this year. Why? Because of the contrasts, where the minimalism of the cabinetry and that gorgeously subtle interplay of greys is played against the character of those rustic roof beams. Continue Reading…
