Here are some of our favorite stories from around the web this past week. Enjoy the eye candy!
- Sculptor power couple Jean-Michel Othoniel and Johan Creten invited AD into their summer home in the south of France and (spoiler) it’s the most elegant artist’s retreat we’ve ever seen. Built in 1840, the pair has thoroughly spruced up the historic space while conserving original features like the grand skylight and kitchen tiles. Topped off with their own artwork, this is a swoon-worthy space brimming with creativity.
- Keeping with the French theme, we were thrilled to find this très original crêpe recipe from Cocokelley. Blueberries, ricotta, lemon, and lavender honey combine to make a fabulously sweet treat. Bonus: it’s oh-so perfect for a Spring soiree!
- And one more story de la France一this time from Paris! Trad Home has a tour of the spectacular flat of former Williams Sonoma creative head, David Jimenez. Of course, as you might expect given his career alma mater, Jimenez’s apartment is full of enviable art and antiques (and ceiling heights一they top 14 feet!!!).
- Norwegian restaurant, Under, is a totally new approach to underwater dining. Designed by Norwegian architecture studio Snøhetta, the structure literally juts out of the North Sea and offers diners an unobstructed view of wide open sea. Yatzer has the photos of this jaw-dropping space.
- British designer, Kit Kemp, has just opened a pop-up in Bergdorf Goodman that’s being described as “whimsical, pattern-punched, and unabashedly kooky.” Set up as an ultra curated living, dining, and bedroom, this apartment is a maximalist’s dream where everything is for sale! (Elle Decor)
