MINIMALISM MINDFULNESS






































  • Formentera is a stunning and acclaimed island in the Mediterranean Balearic sea. Neighbor to Party Central, Ibiza, Formentera is in contrast a peaceful escape surrounded by villages, dirt roads and secluded retreats where many lucky families make their home. One of those villages that can be found on the island is this beautiful abode, planned and designed by GCA Architects – also from Spain. The company was tasked to create a home that blended with the environment and spoke of the feel of the site. Clearly that was successfully achieved.

    The project is divided into three separate villages that used natural and texture-filled materials that bring warmth and beauty to the interiors: micro cement, timber and wood, to mention a few.




    The simplicity of the village exterior effortlessly blends into the outdoors, it almost seems like an extension of the rocky, Mediterranean outdoors. This residence is truly a portrait of slow-living, natural elegance and the spirit of Mediterranean living - GCA Architects went above and beyond the project's scope, converting this into a safe retreat for the families who reside in them.

  • This Belgian furniture powerhouse is a three-generation business founded by the Ostyn family. They started in the world of furniture craftsmanship by creating school furniture and have grown into a company with international reputation for their kitchens and interior design concepts that are simple, functional and that clearly make a statement of sophistication and minimalism.

    Obumex is responsible for the majestic interiors of this renovated coastal property that is a display of luxury and elegance. This home attests to the fact that minimalism in any shape or form can be warming and inviting. The play of textures in the interiors allows this 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home to have a timeless feel without appearing heavy or busy on the eye.

    Art meets architecture – and it helps it evoke a sense of peace and quiet for the people who reside in it.

    Would you like to be the lucky one?

  • Oh, the charm of Amsterdam! I could easily have been born there.

    Yes, Amsterdam happens to be one of my favorite cities in the world. It's not only the warmth of the people and the cultural contrast – but also the architecture and the beautifully preserved canal homes.

    Thomas Geerling is the Founder and Art Director of Studio Framework. He renovated this (in his own words) "rundown home" in Grachtenviertel as a personal project and completed it in less than a year. He and his wife had wanted to move to that part of Amsterdam for the longest time and with the help of his studio they made it a reality.




    The interiors were meant to remain "imperfect". Thomas wanted to keep some of the unfinished feel and have the home serve as a stage for their art, including the two sofas he designed for their dinning-room area. Visibly, they were able to achieve every one of their goals.

    This renovated home is a gem in the busy-yet-charming streets of Amsterdam.

  • Jotun has launched their new range of colors for 2019 – and it is absolutely what I expected from Jotun (and then some). Jotun is a reference in new color trends and design inspiration. Their color cards often determine what we will see in people’s home throughout the year – and justifiably, they’ve grown bigger and stronger over the years.

    Their new collection is divided into 3 categories: calm, refined and raw – and every color does justice to each category. This year we’ll be seeing trends move from stronger shades to beautiful, muted – almost pastel – tones that perfectly compliment each room.

    Personally, I’ve fallen for the 12078 Comfort Grey and 2078 Comfort Grey colors.

    Which is *your* favorite?
