The apartment of photographer Therese Winberg and her husband Oskar Ture is a perfect showcase for her wonderful eye for details — all set off with touches of colour and texture, plus a vintage industrial piece or two to give it an edge. The trompe l'oeil kitchen floor shows off another facet of Therese's creativity, as it was entirely hand painted by her. So fun. Via Plaza.

Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. The weather promises to be a wild and blustery mix of rain and snow, so we'll be staying cosy indoors and catching up with books and movies. How about you?

An interior design consultant as well as furniture designer, Florence Baudoux's lovely home, a Haussmanian townhouse built in the 1870's for the Comtesse de la Tour du Pin, is a richly atmospheric setting for her work. Love. More here on Homelife.

A move from New York to Chicago meant that Robin and her husband could finally build the house of their dreams — and without quite giving up what they loved about New York, either, as their new Bucktown neighborhood abounds in restaurants and shops just as their old one did. Definitely the best of both cities. More here on Vårtnya Hem.

Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. We'll be catching up with a bit of movie watching and (if the weather isn't too messy — it's been rain mixed with snow here) a walk around the neighborhood, too. How about you?

House hunting in Brooklyn, New York, Liana Pai and Geoffrey Quelle saw past the sadly dilapidated state of this row house in Fort Greene and recognized its potential. With no working electricity, sanitation or heating as well as floors and windows that needed replacing, it was an opportunity to transform it into a dream house for themselves and their two daughters Mica and Ima. Love the results. More here on Elle Decoration Sweden.
