A bland, outdated apartment is now a glam and memorable space for a Madrid family, thanks to Leticia Martinez and her team at Trestrece Interior. Amazing retro style. More here on Nuevo Estilo.
Have fun this weekend.

Shimmer. I've been really attracted to bronze tones lately — love its rich amber warmth. Model Guinevere van Seenus in Rodarte, photographed by Josh Olins for Vogue China, April 2011.
Love how fashion designer Raffaele Stella Brienza transformed a labyrinthine attic in Florence into the elegant space you see here. Fantastic sense of style. More here on Bo Bedre.

Getting your hands dirty. Whether you paint, draw, sculpt, garden, rebuild old cars, bake, make furniture or other manual occupations, it's deeply satisfying to create something with your own two hands.

I've always loved the work of Mark Rothko, but this piece, #11 from 1950, has an extraordinary luminous effect — the copper and gold just shimmers. Stunning.

Admiring the lovely home of vintage dealer Demetrio Zanetti today — a clean, minimalist approach to a mid century furniture collection that avoids the temptation to reproduce the look of the era, instead mixing classics with contemporary art and design. Wonderful. That's a shot of his store at the end, incidentally. More at Plastolux.

The house and showroom of designers Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli shows the same discerning eyes they bring to the elegant glazed ceramics they create for their iconic Paris firm Astier de Villatte. Their home is a beautiful interpretation of rustic French country style — with a humorous note here and there. Lovely. More here on Elle Decor España.
