Moroccan Paradise


A stunning space in Morocco for you today, the second home of London-based interior designer Lisa Burke. Gently renovated, this 18th century house has been decorated in a bohemian style that reflects the culture surrounding it, blending African and French influences. Currently available for seasonal rent, this tranquil home is where Lisa and her partner plan to eventually retire, far from the bustle of London. More here on Casa Vogue.

Buffet


This week's links. Enjoy.

A Stable Home
Take a tour of a beautifully renovated 18th century former stables in Stockholm, now a lovely home with great original details. Love the textured walls and beams. 


Farewell William Trevor
The Irish writer William Trevor passed away last week at the age of 88. Follow the link for a wonderful interview with him in 1989 by The Paris Review.

7 Movies That Will Make You Feel Better About the Future
Interesting list of hopeful movies for anxious times, including one of my all time faves, Wings of Desire.

The New York Times Gift Guide
Get some shopping inspiration for the holidays with this beautifully designed interactive guide there's something for everyone on your list. 

100 Years of Kitchens
Architectural Digest has a fun video that shows the evolution of the kitchen over the last 100 years. Fascinating. 

Best Food Books of 2016
Smithsonian has an interesting selection of food history books released this year — perfect for any gourmets you know (or treat yourself). Several focus on one thing only (butter, bourbon, candy) while others examine restaurants or food culture in New York. Perfect reading by the fire, with appropriate drink and/or snack on hand.

Roasted Broccoli Salad With Pine Nuts, Raisins and Feta
Balance out the rich festive foods of the holidays with delectable and healthy dishes like this one.

Cocooning


A forecast of freezing rain outside today makes the idea of spending an afternoon in a lovely space like this even more appealing.

Photogenic in Madrid


This lovely Madrid apartment by interior designer Julian Gallego reminds me of the set design for Jean Cocteau's films — there's a slightly 1940s Surrealist feel to it. Beautiful. More here on Nuevo Estila.

Vintage Style


Love the fantastic mix of vintage Scandinavian and French in the seaside home of Shelly, owner of Etcetera Vintage. So much character and charm here. See more photos at Mademoiselle Poirot.

A warm, cognac-toned leather sofa is definitely something I'd like one day. In the meantime, a little inspiration from stylist Corina Koch.

Moments of Beauty


Mysterious beauty. Love this photo of Lady Amanda Harlech, photographed for W magazine in November 2012 by Tim Walker — she looks like a character in a rather sophisticated fairy tale.

Beautiful in Berlin


Love this sensitive renovation of a 1900s Berlin apartment by Marc Benjamin Drewes Architekturen — must have been exciting to discover the beautiful original flooring and ceiling frescos underneath all the paint. Love the great mix of wood pieces from different eras and places, too, such as the Moroccan door beside the Bavarian chairs and mid century Scandinavian buffet. More here on Yellowtrace.

Small and cautious interventions by Marc Benjamin Drewes ARCHITEKTUREN, in collaboration with Schneideroelsen, attempt to preserve the special atmosphere and retrieve hidden interior qualities in this refurbishment of a typical Berlin apartment dating back to 1900s. In three of the rooms, several layers of old colour were taken off the extensive moulding on the ceiling. Behind the thick layers of colour, parts of the original frescos appeared. Since the ceilings weren’t repainted, the rooms are now characterised by a lively and diverse aesthetic full of history. The walls were plastered with a simple lime cement, which creates a slightly irregular and textured surface. The heritage oak parquetry and timber floorboards were sanded and treated with an oil & wax mixture, preserving much of the original character. In the rooms with no original moulding, the cement tile patterns create a colourful and vivacious atmosphere. The rest of these rooms are kept pure and without complicated details. Between the kitchen and the bedroom, an old Moroccan door marks the transition between the richly decorated original parts and the new pure and modern sections of the apartment. This almost surreal element bought by the client establishes a strong personal touch.
