Lee discovered this fantastic holiday rental from The Modern House. The house, designed by London’s Meld Architecture, is nestled into a hillside in south-west France and has great green credentials (including solar panels for hot water, rainwater harvesting for toilets and irrigation, a green roof, and locally sourced materials and labour.)
Also, I have to say that I’m loving all that chipboard. Anyone fancy a holiday in the French countryside?
There’s definitely a ‘faceted’ trend going around. Even Habitat’s in on it! Below are ‘Carat’ desk lamps from Arihiro Miyake, ‘Rock’ hanging lamps by Diesel ‘Successful Living’ (yes, the clothing label), ‘Crease’ dishes from Voon Wong & Benson Saw, planters from Habitat… and Lady Gaga, of course.
I know I’ve seen more products like these – but alas can’t remember where. If you see any others send them my way!
He’s also worked on the set of the most recent Harry Potter film, creating products and labels… I’d love to see some of this stuff!
Check out some of Nicolas’ work below…
I just stumbled on this barn-like, Hamptons house belonging to NYC designer, Rick Livingston. (I think this could safely be called rustic luxury?) The structure of this building is amazing – look at that roof and porch! Personally I’d add a bit more colour to the interior, but the shell of the place is just great, no?
Oh – and I love that collection of wooden ladders.
