A new catalog Classique Chic by the French store Maisons du Monde is such a good confirmation. Here we have all the best that we love in the traditional French design. Enjoy!
Designer Margaret Naeve Parker adores interiors that look old and aged pieces of furniture. Her works are often difficult to tell from the real centuries-old mansions and historic houses. But still, this is not a classic or country style in a pure form – the designer tries to add sophistication to the spaces with a help of modern furniture and bright art objects. What a great sense of style!

Instead of building a new home from scratch, studio Hoedemaker Pfeiffer studio offered renovation of an old beach cottage with an extension, in order to preserve the authentic spirit and atmosphere of the home. Since the house is located near the beach on Whidbey Island in Washington State and is used by the owners as a holiday home for the weekend, most of the windows in it are oriented to beautiful sea views. There is also a terrace with soft outdoor furniture, where, it seems, you can spend hours enjoying nature in a good company. Perfect setting!
Susan Burns is a master of classical interiors. Despite the fact that she is from the United States, the influence of the English style in her works is felt with the naked eye.

Today we would like to share the best of the Susan Burns’ portfolio!
Interior designers do not always choose for themselves trendy modern interiors with a lot of cool original solutions, as someone can seem.

Do not miss a single detail: this phrase perfectly describes the approach to design in this modern American mansion. Every little thing is thought out here, paintings, lamps and accessories play the main role. Of course, the finish is also very important, but the mood is set precisely by details here.

In addition, there are many small decor pieces in each room that echo the general atmosphere. Wonderful home!
