Interior Inspiration: Santa Clara 1728 Hotel

interior-inspiration-santa-clara-1728-lisbon-3-desmitten

Apologies for the temporary pause in posting. Today I am dreaming of a tranquil, relaxing getaway to Lisbon, Portugal. The Santa Clara 1728 hotel is located in the old cultural quarter of the city. The 18th century building offers an old world feeling while the interior’s modern amenities make guest feel right at home.

Repaired Beauty

In an effort to reduce waste, I always aim to repair things before replacing them. From holy sweaters to broken dishes, there is a subsequent beauty in repaired objects. Romy Northover explores the beauty in the broken dishes of her series entitled Fracture. Shop the entire Fracture collection at The Garnered. The best part, there are no two dishes alike.

Interior Inspiration: Minimalist Fireplace

After a quick trip up north where I spent most of my working hours sitting in front of a fireplace, my obsession with having a minimalist fireplace in our New York apartment grew exponentially. This dream will have to wait until we build our own minimalist home one day. In the meantime I am gathering some major interior inspiration on the subject. Everywhere you look, from New York and New Mexico to Italy and Greece, minimalist fireplaces quietly adorn spaces all over the world. A bare space to build your fire allows the fire to take center stage. There are no ornate mantels or complicated doors to obstruct the view, just a simple setting for a warm fire. Here are my current favorites, oh and don’t forget about this one. Visit me here for more interior inspiration.

It’s hard to believe it’s already the second week in January. As the Women’s March on Washington approaches next weekend, I can’t help but find solace and motivation in the strong women who fill my Instagram feed…

Interior Inspiration: Jil Sander Flagship

There’s nothing like an empty, minimally designed space to make you want to clear out your entire apartment and start fresh. I have been KonMari-ing my life for the past two years, but I still find myself surrounded by things, no matter how much I donate, sell or throw away. Do you have this problem? Anyway, I thought the Jil Sander Flagship in Milan offered great inspiration to clear your mind, or your home for the new year. I can’t say that I will be THIS minimalistic, but it does spark ideas for a piece of furniture I am designing for our kitchen. The thoughtful use of space, movement of lines, contrasting textures and natural materials are all noteworthy details to consider.
