I don’t know what has been going on, but these past few months have just flown right by! A part of me still thinks that it is March, but the fact that I am currently writing this blog post while sitting on my balcony, enjoying the warm weather and sipping on an Aperol Spritz implies that we are much further into 2019 then I care to admit to myself. This means that I have now been living in my new place for over six months and I have barely scratched the decorating surface! It is about time that I kick things into gear and give myself a deadline.
The biggest challenge that I am currently facing in terms of decorating, is that I can’t seem to decide what I like, and when I do decide I can’t seem to find it OR it is completely out of my budget! What is a girl to do???
Having said all of this, I think that I have narrowed it down and in my head things are finally starting to come together (or so I hope). I finally painted my living room – I went for a pure white colour which I absolutely love, and now time for the fun part…decorating! To find inspiration I have been doing A LOT of research and today I am sharing with you a project that I recently stumbled across from a studio who’s work I have admired for a few years now.
Bao Proyectos is a Madrid based firm who’s work is clean, fresh and absolutely gorgeous! Their projects include the One Shot Hotel in Saville along with countless private residences and restaurants. Today’s Inspiring Interior is a private residence in Madrid that really captured the mood that I would love to achieve within my own home.
This light filled residence has a clean aesthetic thanks to countless windows, bright white walls and minimal furnishings. Despite the minimal aesthetic, the home still looks lived in and welcoming – this is often challenging to achieve, yet the team at Bao Proyectos has achieved it beautifully. Built in book cases and storage along with intelligent furniture choices helps to achieve a clean, sleek yet inviting look that I absolutely love. Playful accents such as the yellow couch against a mint green wall and the geometric designed storage in the bedroom and rugs throughout the home, help to infuse some fun into the overall clean aesthetic. The icing on the proverbial cake of this stunning apartment is the gorgeous bathroom with marble and matte black hardware – heaven! Bao Proyectos did a wonderful job on this project and I can’t wait to see what they achieve in the future! Take a look:

Today’s Inspiring Interior is the very definition of Stylishly Zen. Located in Carlton, Australia, this light filled family home is chic, unique and incredibly charming. It combines elements of a Victorian era home with Parisian chic and the result is heavenly.
The bold blue door and lovely Victorian details are the perfect welcome to this home. Inside, a clean colour palette of white walls and dark floors are the perfect backdrop to showcase the many gorgeous details of this family home. Dark herringbone floors, a marble waterfall island and unexpected furniture colour choices elevate this home to a new level.
I especially love the pink dining chairs and the blue couch which helps to carry the charm of the exterior into the home. Sculptural lighting and neutral furniture otherwise help to balance out the showcase furniture.
Plenty of large windows allow natural light to fill the home and it helps to bring nature indoors which adds an additional level of calm to this serene family home.
The attention to detail is incredible and I love how certain elements such as sculptural lighting, herringbone flooring and marble quietly repeats itself throughout the home.
This dreamy family home will have a consistent spot on my inspiration board for current and future projects, Love! Love! Love!

I have no excuse, I fell off of the blogging wagon! I have spent six months thinking about blogging and coming up with new topics but that’s all they were….thoughts. I got caught up in life and failed to take some time to nurture my creative outlet aka this blog. I have missed all of you and I am so happy to be back! Here is a quick update – I bought my first place! I have dreamed of this moment for a very long time, and more importantly I have dreamed about how I would decorate my place. But now that I finally have the chance, I’m stuck – I can’t seem to find any furniture that I like (within my limited budget obviously). Needless to say, I am frantically searching for inspiration and through this search I have come across some gorgeous Inspiring Interiors that I am so excited to share with you.
Today’s Inspiring Interior is in Cordoba Argentina and it is soooooo cool! Named “La Negrita” and located within a forest, this abode was designed to exist harmoniously within nature. The home owners gave Cordoba based architects Morini Arquitectos the goal of creating a home that would be private from the street but connected with the surrounding landscape. The result is three separate modules (garage, bedrooms and open plan living and dining room) connected by a black facade. The black walls hide the home from the street but the latter part of the home has floor to ceiling windows that connects the interior with the stunning landscape.
Cool details such wooden floors that echo the trees outside and concrete walls and ceiling give the space a warm yet clean minimal vibe. This home is filled with beautiful contrasts, my favourites being the black facade against the light from the floor to ceiling windows and the privacy from street views to the openness and embracing nature of the home to it’s natural surroundings. Love it!
What do you think of this unique masterpiece?

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Spanish designer Katty Schiebeck’s work. Clean lines, a mix of textures against a beautiful colour palette of bright white and bold colours are all hallmarks of Katty’s signature style. So when I saw pictures of a recent Barcelona based project of hers, I was pleasantly surprised to see the evolution of Katty’s style. There were still clean lines and a contrast of layered textures, but this project was darker, moodier and dramatic all the while maintaining a modern vibe of class and elegance.
Grey walls, gorgeous marble and dark herringbone floors provide the perfect backdrop for the minimalist aesthetic that Katty excels at.
This is gorgeous apartment has large windows and a large outdoor space. The cohesive design and colour palette successfully integrate the outside with the inside of the apartment making this apartment even more swoon worthy.
Overall, this apartment is a work of art and will be serving a design inspiration for future projects.
