This Place








I had a case of deja vu when I saw this house. I instantly loved the style naturally, but there was something extra that made me think "I know this place", and I do. I showed it to you back here, not so very long ago.

Same house, two ways. Which do you prefer?

I love this house so much. Autoban rock my world - they are one of the most exciting design duos in the world today. In my humble opinion... x dana

how funny that they changed it. I like it the first way much much more. Must be in Europe surely?

i prefer this way, it really highlights the stunning architecture of the home.

I love the warm pops of gold, but for me the first way gets my vote!

the wooden bookshelves look great!

I needed to look twice to see that it was the same. I like this version better. Love that book shelf!

Me too Dana, they are very talented!

Jane - the house is in Istanbul, which to me explains the old world parisienne style architecture, but with an edge.

This version above is the older style, from like 2006 or so, that link to the other version is the newer fit out.

Hiya honey....I like this one better, it's warmer. What an interesting rose light in the second last and what a mirror!

How to choose? I absolutely, completely adore both but I'm going to have to say that this one steals my heart by just a smidge(although I prefer the bed in the second newer version) - the gold mirror is perhaps the most glorious thing I have seen in quite some time. I love the mouldings and gold on the kitchen ceiling- love the octopus lights (hope to have on for myself soon) and the dining table/chairs- One of the best spaces I have ever seen- thanks so much for sharing!!

wow. just goes to show. i like this version better but probably because it seems "new". even if it's simply because we've seen so much of the other style lately.

but those tiled walls! that's something you can't change so easily or shouldn't. i would murder for a big room with all tiled walls like that. can you believe it, i knew someone who had a kitchen entirely like that in hoboken, nj. it had been a speakeasy back in the day, run by a nice italian family.

p.s. glad they didn't change the bed!

like this one better except for the Kitchen. The Kitchen in the previous one would be perfect in this new version.

Love the architecture. And I agree that gold mirror is stunning.

i love the simple lean to ladder shelves, but all the gold would be too much for me to live with permanently.. would feel a bit like i was an interloper in saddam's fallen palace! i know i'm probably out here on my own on this one, but just saying :)
