This Modern Spanish Los Angeles Home is All About the Bathrooms (And the Archways, And the Pool…)

We first began to notice that Annie Ritz and Daniel Rabin, the architect couple behind LA's And And And studio, had a thing for bathrooms back when their own house was published. The kids bathroom in that house is honestly a delight, what with its blue tile and pink grout. We took notice again when the couple posted this image on their Instagram of a master bath, whose tiled checkerboard floor is made from pink and mustard 2x2 squares. But their latest project, a house in Santa Monica Canyon, takes the cake. See why after the jump.

"Is this even a house?" we wondered to ourselves when we first saw images of this renovation in Madrid, undertaken by the Spanish architects Lucas y Hernández Gil. Called CASA A12, the duplex home — once a deep and extremely dark space — has been turned into a kind of futuristic fantasy wonderland.

A Spanish Architect’s Wildly Colorful Renovation, Inspired By Disco and Nightclubs

Mario Montesinos Marco is just one year out of architecture school, but this marks already the second time we've featured his interiors, and this one's a doozy: For the renovation of a friend's apartment in Valencia's Ruzafa neighborhood, the Spanish architect designed most of the furniture and lighting according to the same principle that drove his art school thesis — "disco space."

A Palazzo in Puglia Provides the Perfect Backdrop for These Vintage Rugs

Earlier this spring, T Magazine published a story on a new design hotel located inside a restored 1861 palazzo in the village of Gagliano del Capo, which seemed a perfect encapsulation of everything that's beautiful about Puglia, frescoed ceilings and all. The Australian-based company Tigmi Trading — which sources one-of-a-kind vintage and contemporary Berber rugs from Morocco — seems to have also taken note of the palazzo, which provides the backdrop to their latest collection, Casa D'Arte, in these photos.

Is Menorca the Next Puglia? Probably, Thanks to This Hotel Designed By Dorothee Meilichzon

When we first saw photos of the Experimental Menorca, the latest hotel to be outfitted by one of our very favorite interior designers, Paris-based Dorothee Meilichzon, part of us wanted to keep it to ourselves — at least until we got a chance to personally visit it. Especially since its resume is so hip it's almost ridiculous: 43-room agriturismo on an under-developed and overlooked island, Meilichzon's signature style, au courant branding, textiles and ceramics by LRNCE, food sourced from the hotel's garden, pottery and painting classes on offer, owned by a boutique hospitality agency... We could keep going.

This Art-For-Hire Company By a London Interiors Stylist is a Genius Idea

As an interiors stylist, Laura Fulmine was constantly on the hunt for license-free art that could easily be photographed and shared — a deeply frustrating task made even harder by more stringent recent copyright laws. So she did what any reasonable person in 2019 might do: She started a company that would offer the exact thing she had always been searching for.
