The Weekend

FUN LINKS

Concrete lovers, this home is not to be missed.

What if Microsoft were to redesign the Apple packaging? Well, this is so true and hilarious.

Perfect backpack for photographic excursions (or weekend getaways).

What was this thing with the overuse of mayonnaise and jello in the past decades? These recipes look totally unappealing.

Swooning over this easy to wear long t-shirt dress (currently on sale ^^).

Incredibly gorgeous bar design in Vienna (just look at these terrazzo floors).

Check out my latest article contribution on Interior Collective about my love over minimalistic kitchen design.

These sculptural topiary gardens are out of this world.

These mobiles are for babies? I want one in my living room for sure.

Guess you won't be missing the final week of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? This pom pom throw blanket, this marble and wood serving board and this table lamp are on my wishlist.

While striving for a quiet environment to focus and work in my home office (which is located right in the heart of my home and with a toddler always curious to see what I'm up to ^^), I came across this working nook and felt just like heaven. So simple and welcoming, a perfect spot to be inspired and knock off the to-do lists. The sloped arched window is such a beauty too. Actually, the whole apartment styled by Pela Hedeby and photographed by Sara Medina Lind is. Swoon!

THE ROOM: Bedroom with bathroom inside

Bathroom inside bedroom. Design by Isabel Otero and Ramiro Mora, photo by Amador Toril

Check out this sweetest bedroom with attached bathroom designed by Isabel Otero and Ramiro Mora. What is not to love? The smart glass partition over the sinks that follows the molding line? The geometric patterned floor tiles that separate the bathroom area from the bedroom? The Parisian flair of the interior architecture (although located in Madrid) and the soft neutral color palette? The little balcony brimming with plants sure does up to the welcoming feeling. Swoon!

Masseria Moroseta in Puglia, Italy

Masseria Moroseta in Puglia, Italy. Design by Andrew Trotter, photos by Salva López via Welcome Beyond

Design is all about the feeling (and function, of course, but feeling). So, to me, seeing a gorgeous space doesn't mean much if it doesn't get me butterflies in my stomach. To make me dream, project myself inside the photos, actually try to feel the experience, smell the smells, touch the fabrics, sense the sun rays coming through the windows on my skin.

This is exactly what happened when these photos of Masseria Moroseta landed in my inbox a few days ago. I had to instantly pause what I was doing at the moment and stare. Just stare. This place is like it just popped out of my designer dreams. It is so close to what I'd like to build one day for myself on the southern Cretan mountains. The Puglian landscape is similar to the Cretan one; the harsh sun washed volumes, the stark nature, the wise olive trees, the blinding blue skies, and the crystal turquoise sea waters, very typical Mediterranean indeed.

15 impeccable examples of sophisticated interiors with concrete floors

Interiors with concrete floors | My Paradissi

Concrete floor is currently my favorite type of flooring (I even used it in my latest interior design project!). It is easy to the eye, easier to maintain, quite affordable to place on your home and has tons of finishes and variations to pick from. I won't be dealing with the technical pros and cons in this post (there's actually a pretty good article on Houzz you can read more about), I just wanted to show you some images that justify my love for it. Far and furthermore, it is how it adds an understated, casual vibe to any interior being used, from a classic Parisian type apartment with high ceiling and moldings to the more contemporary country and minimalistic designs. Follow me, after the jump, for some gorgeous pin-worthy interiors with concrete floors.

THE ROOM: Modern small bathroom design

Small bathroom design. Photo via Kvarteret Mäkleri

It is no news that size doesn't matter and it definitely doesn't always take high end or exquisite design moves to create a beautiful interior. This petite bathroom stole my heart the moment I saw it and it is as simple as it is stylish and functional. My love for white tiles and black grout goes a long way now (and how it serves as the perfect background for a round mirror), but I also like the unexpected teal cabinetry, the black toilet and floor, and the little white sink faucet. So many to adorn, right?

Terrazzo floor, pink walls and an indoor tree? Well, that's a cool juicery indeed :O

This sculptural easy to wear white dress is on my wishlist.

Dream destination: Sicily (and this villa).

Gorgeous minimalistic arm sconce.

Well, that's what design is all about. To be able to fit a whole life in 22 sqm.

Thinking of buying a backpack lately. What do you think of this one? I adore its nude pink hue.

Craving for this mouthwatering pizza.

Sofas are getting bulkier and closer to the ground. Maximum lounging bliss guaranteed.

The Valentino Rome Flagship Store is out of this world.

This candleholder OMG, it's a piece of art.

Red and white in Mykonos

Red door on white wall in Mykonos. Greek minimalism. Photo by Eleni Psyllaki @myparadissi

While browsing through my photo folders the other day, I was inspired once more by the red touches on the white background on the island of Mykonos. There is this belief that everything on the Aegean islands are blue and white (and quite fairly so) but it is not always the thing. A red door and a blooming bougainvillea framing a red window break the rule with attitude. 
These photos are from my trip to Mykonos a few years ago and I posted about them here and here (check the posts for some deep green and turquoise details too!).

THE ROOM: Minimalistic kitchen design

Minimalistic kitchen design by Hans Verstuyft Architecten

I'm inspired by the overall clean and simple design of this kitchen by Hans Verstuyft Architecten. Love how the wood finishes literally pop up on the gray and white background and add a sort of speaking warmth to an otherwise stark interior. I wish there were photos showing where the fridge and oven are located, however, but I guess they will be cleverly hidden as well. What do you think?
