The history of this house on the Costa Brava, Spain, began in the 50s of last century, but for the last 40 years, it has not seen any repair. The owner Eugene, interior designer, renovate the interior spaces with great attention to detail and lovingly revived the territory. Now nothing tells about the former despair. In the bright rooms of the house, retro details and rustic style are beautifully combined together, there are a lot of wood and natural fabrics. We just love the wonderful staircase with white and blue tiles and a spacious kitchen. Not to mention the well-groomed backyard. This house has really got a new bright life!
The owners of this Californian home in California has a very interesting profession – they are winemakers, and their dwelling is part of an old winery. Over time, the house fell into decay and it had to be preserved. It was decided to make the house more modern without significant alterations. It turned out to be minimalist and stylish. We especially liked the kitchen with a panoramic window, the area by the fireplace and the bathroom on the second floor. It’s so easy and elegant, a house with a history can really find a second fascinating life!

Very often wallpapers can work miracles, and in this English bedroom a fairy tale really happened. The Upper Brook Street wallpaper by Little Greene has a very active print: a dark base and a vivid floral pattern were created perhaps for any room except bedroom, but designer Karen Knox decided to give it a try. As a result, she got one of the most unusual bedrooms that we have ever seen!
Killiehuntly Hotel in Scotland is an ideal place for those who love quiet rest and remote getaways, as well as for fans of English novels. This former farm is located in the Highland area, that is famous for its landscapes and the fact that it is home to the famous Loch Ness lake. Killiehuntly resembles a traditional country cottage lodge and externally it does not look like a hotel. But inside there is a lot of comfort and style: you can relax by the fireplace with a glass of famous whiskey, take a walk along the green hills, feel like a farmer or try those farm products in the cozy atmosphere of a Scottish house. Wonderful place!
The interior designer Helen Bergin turned this old New England style 1949-year cottage by the ocean into a chic eclectic home. Helen wanted to play with shapes, textures and prints. The result is an interesting contrasting interior: the atmosphere of the tropics, and outside the severe Atlantic Ocean. This impression is enhanced by the grey stone fireplace in combination with palm trees, blue surf and floral ornaments. “We wanted to make the home to look fun and at the same time experiment with different design styles,” says Helen. And this game was definitely worth the candle!
A home for a modern family can be classic, but at the same time with a spark – today we have an excellent example of this. When the owners bought this old house, it needed an urgent renovation. But the family decided to take the original classic design as the basis, and only to let more light into the space and make it brighter with details. Of course, the home has some modern touches in design, but in essence the interiors are rather traditional. What a lovely and warm dwelling!
Not everyone can decide on a completely black walls at home. Especially in the bedroom, where, as a rule, we all expect to see light and unobtrusive shades. But today we have an example of a rather bold color choice for this very private part of the home – designer Jessie D. Miller created a very dramatic and glamorous feminine bedroom. All 4 walls here are painted black and only small details are in contrast white. Golden elements and stylish designer decor created the character of this extraordinary interior. Gorgeous!
Parisian interiors always differ not only in their elegance and style but also in their unusual approaches to solving design questions. In this apartment, for example, the designer came up with a wonderful partition for the kitchen – it visually fences the kitchen from the living room and dining room while not overloading the space. We also loved the bathroom floor tiles – honeycomb fits very well. Not to mention the amazing blue fireplace and the cool green sofa. Great example of modern French design!
