French inspiration

Geraldton, Australia. A cosy home furnished with vintage treasures and family heirlooms. It may seem like time stopped here... one hundred, two hundred years ago?

Hans Blomquist: vintage mood

"I think people should treasure possessions and not throw so much away. It is easy to make simple updates and still feel like you have something new. An old sofa or armchair can be refreshed by adding some new cushions, while a bunch of fresh flowers in a simple vase can make a room feel totally revived. Small changes can make a big difference." Hans Blomquist

The Pierre House by Tom Kunding

A house so perfectly integrated into the nature of San Juan Islands, that it almost disappears among the majestic rocks. The interior also blends seamlessly into the surroundings - both fireplace hearths, washbasin in the bathroom and even an entire powder room were carved out of existing raw stone. And by the way: in french 'the pierre' means 'rock'.

In Malmö

A real historical gem - an amazing apartment in Sweden, once owned (and designed) by the architect Harald Boklund, whose works were influenced by Neo-Renaissance, Art Nouveau and National Romanticism. It feels like a castle, doesn't it?

Stream-of-consciousness

Freehand illustrations crept out of the drawing pad - flooding onto almost all the surfaces in this Brooklyn apartment. Here lives the author: Shantell Martin, London-born artist known for her intriguing murals and live performances. Magical!

Nerd Chair by David Geckeler

A new icon has been born - Nerd Chair, honoured by Beckers International Design Award 2011 and Muuto Talent Award 2012, has just been put into production and will arrive at the first shops next month. The concept refers to mid-century modern scandinavian design: clean, refined shape and construction simplicity - laminated plywood sheets connected without any metal elements.

The designer says: "To me, Nordic design is unique in terms of tradition well approved quality. It is fascinating to see how a new generation of young designers transform this heritage."
