A new bedroom and library in an old apartment

While I anxiously await the project that never seems like it is going to happen (the creation of a library in my third floor unused space), I can only hold back pang sof jealousy when I come across projects like this by Sophie Lallias of Atelier Sofi(A). She created a bedroom and library and left a narrow staircase to access the rest of the apartment. 3.5 metre high bookcases allow for maximum use of a very small space and the result is TONS of book storage, a workspace and a cozy bedroom. (That's Farrow & Ball's Tessela wallpaper in the hallway and Cole & Sons Woods & Stars in the bedroom)

A completely renovated home all in white

A 150 m2 home that was uninhabited for quite some time in Barcelona with no personality and lacking in light and flow was totally transformed by Bárbara Aurell, interior architect and designer of Espacio en blanco. I would guess Bárbara has a thing for white, and it seems so do these homeowners. This apartment was transformed with lots of white paint and furnishings and the result is beautiful. And the bathroom is to die for! Via Nuevo Estilo

Garden goals

There are three things I know when it comes to gardens. 1) I love gardening on a weekend, 2) I love super lush plantings and 3) I love Amanda Oliver's gardens. Amanda runs a small landscape design and garden making company in Melbourne with a focus on the plants. Oh such beautiful plants!

A family home in Tel Aviv

A big thanks to interior designer Scott Talmon for sending over photos of one of his recent projects. This is the home of a young family in Herzliyah, a district of Tel Aviv, Israel. The current homeowners bought the 30 year old home from the original owners , so as you would guess, it needed a lot of updates and modernizing including opening up walls, both interior and exterior and renovating the kitchen and bathrooms. The renovations and design were done on a very limited budget. The result is modern, family-friendly and timeless. Great job Scott!
