Eccentric old Europe

 Eccentric old Europe

When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.

A space I am crushing: Get the look

You guys. A little about what has been up with me. I have been getting into shape, which is easily the most torturous act one can ever commit to. I mean my abs are so sore that it is physically painful to laugh. For those of you who know me, I laugh. A lot. Mostly at people, but I cannot help it. So basically I am being punished for something I find great joy in. Hmmmm. Is being fit truly worth it? Jury is out for me, folks. Couple that with clean eating/Paleo, mama is in her own personal hell. Give me a few weeks, I will come around. I am skeptical…

So something that is TOTALLY delightful is this room below. I snagged this a few weeks back and cannot get over the chicness of the space. It’s all boho glam and I am all oooooohhhhh and aaaahhhhh. I am not generally one for purple hues, but this space is making purple feel all kinds of right, and not in a Barney sort of fashion. I mean if anyone can take a lilac space and not make it overly girly, you are a decorating genius.  So bravo. Standing ovation.

Tastefully Renovated 19th Century Apartment Exuding a Classical Eclectic Style

Collect this ideaapartment renovation Tastefully Renovated 19th Century Apartment Exuding a Classical Eclectic Style

This former Communist home was renovated by interior designer Judit Koczoh in collaboration with Beck Real Estate Kft to create a beautiful, practical, and energy efficient apartment. There were virtually no original features to be saved due to neglect and destruction during the Communist era. So the designers created this crib from scratch using talented workmen and carpenters and by moving 100 year old ceramic kitchen tiles from another apartment in the same building. The style is classical eclectic, reflecting the belief that renovated apartments in 19th century buildings should respect the aesthetic spirit of that era, while being updating with stronger doses of color in the furniture and accessories.

 Bernheimer Architecture

Is there anything cooler in the world of architecture than a Brooklyn brownstone? I think not. Brooklyn-based Bernheimer Architecture has renovated brownstones, lofts, penthouse apartments, warehouses and designed some really fantastic modern homes. I really admire how they incorporate traditional and original with modern and new. It is taking what was SO good back in the day and making it even better today.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Friday is typically a nice day, isn’t it? There’s a certain magic in the air midday. When I worked in corporate, I’d hang out with my colleagues chatting about weekend plans and discussing our week and silly upper management. We’d disappear for coffee, for that final jolt of caffeine to push us through until 5pm when we’d be free at last like birds.

 Happy Friday Everyone!
