These modern stone designs by Kim HyunJoo are simple and beautiful. Her minimal approach to the objects she creates is stunning. I like so many of her pieces but the one that stood out to me was the Seoul Tray. The shape is elegant the topographic like lines on the interior of the tray ads an interesting texture while holding its content steady.

These dark masculin interiors by Vincenzo De Cotiis are quite engaging. They have a sense of warmth and luxury to them. I love the old world architecture meeting modern, you haven’t hear that from me before. I feel like there is a quality of materials that is expected with these spaces. There is something so perfect in the first picture. Is it the mix of or lack of color? The woods, metallics and other colors and textures work phenomenal together. I think that the photography plays a big role in how good these room look as well.
This modular shelving by Modiste Furniture is quite intriguing. In my mind, it is certainly influenced by the work of Paul McCobb. I like the credenza with the marble top. I don’t think I like the exposed plywood edge, maybe because it “cheapens” or “lessens” the piece? Maybe it provides a lower price point for the unit? I would love to see it built using another set of materials. Brass, walnut and marble would look mighty fine. Over all, I like the design and the visual simplicity of the structures.

This contemporary remodel in London by Paul Archer Design is a minimal work of art. This older building has gone through a complete transformation starting at its bare bones structure. I love some of the older design elements like the fireplace and moldings. They are a reminder of what the house was but at the same time they work really well with the updated interiors. The room with the fire place has to be my favorite, normally I wouldn’t think about painting trim gray or any other color for that matter but it works so well here.
This stunning Parisian home belongs to Jean-Christophe Aumas and has a wonderful eclectic vibe going on. I have taken a liking to the reinventing of buildings and spaces. This particular space was part of a convent now a texture filled home. The floors look so worn and are a great contrast to the white walls and architectural details. All of the little vignettes around the house loving display objects and art that I am sure all have a story behind them.
“His home, part of a former convent built 300 years ago on the narrow winding Rue des Petites Ecuries in the 10th arrondissement, sits in a multicultural microcosm that, over the past few years, has seen an influx of creative types setting up shop just like Aumas”
