A Barcelona Loft

Admiring this great industrial loft in Barcelona, renovated by interior designer Marta Castellano and architecture studio Serrat-Tort—so many great original details. Also love the retro decorating of the space, harkening back to the first reclaimed industrial spaces in 1970's New York—check out that lounge platform off the dining area. More here at Est Magazine.

A Photographer's Retreat

Looking at this beautiful, light-filled home in Sonoma County, California, it's hard to imagine what it was like when photographers Laura Resen and Cloud Devine first saw it—dark walls, fluorescent kitchen lighting, purple and cream shag carpeting in the bedrooms. The pair saw the potential behind it all, though, with Cloud happily taking charge of the renovation. Love the results. See more here at One Kings Lane.

Green House

The tiny fourth floor Copenhagen apartment of Thilde Santin seems a long way away from its central city location, thanks to its splendid profusion of plants. Love how she's created a peaceful green oasis in her home. More here on Bolig.

The Beauty of Japanese Bathing Rituals
From Vogue: "In Japan, bathing is about so much more than just getting clean, encouraging an almost meditative appreciation of one's body. Here, Sophie Bew heads to Kinosaki to explore the myriad benefits of traditional onsen."

Italian Toastie
Perfect for when you just want a sandwich, but yearn for something a bit fancier and more filling than the usual. This one features mushrooms sautéed in garlic, black tapenade, provolone cheese, fresh oregano leaves and salami on good bread rolls, but it's endlessly adaptable.

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.
