Serenity Now

A quiet place to write, draw, work, drink coffee or just daydream.

Picturesque in Puglia

American-born art historian and curator Peter Benson Miller has been collecting seriously since he was 13, so it's no surprise that, many years later, he and his partner Giovanni Panebianco were beginning to find themselves squeezed out of their Rome apartment. They eventually found the perfect home in Puglia, where the hundreds of objects collected by Miller over the years can be displayed in all their glory. Stunning space. Read more about it here in T, the New York Times style magazine.

Boho in Paris

This elegant Paris apartment, home to two lawyers and their four children, is one I've featured on the blog before—but these new photos make a revisit more than worthwhile. Located in a Haussmann building in the 16th arrondissement, the space has been impeccably reorganized and styled by the Royal Roulotte studio. Love this one. More here at Architectural Digest España.

An Artist's Home

Six years ago artist Kate Tucker and her husband, Tom Crago, purchased a run-down turn of the century Edwardian house in Melbourne, needing more space with the arrival of their first child. Despite its poor condition, they could see its potential—and when they did renovate, it was with as light a hand as possible. Love the beautiful results (and artist studio in the back garden, too). More here at Dwell.

Une Maison Bleu

Today I'm admiring the exquisite Paris home of stylist Felipe Oliveira Baptista and her family, with its modern pieces in a 19th century setting—all delicately set off with the most ethereal of pale blues. A perfect setting for a modern Proust. More here on AD France.
