Hi HI!
WELCOME TO OUR DESIGN BLOG

Have fun, it's filled with interior design inspiration

We travel the world for you and bring you stories on all things pretty in interiors, art, and architecture.  Each month Christophe, our creative director, takes you on a trip exploring design and creativity in a different country. 

We immerse ourselves in the local design community and provide in-depth reviews of designers, projects, local makers, and visual inspiration from around the globe. These stories are complemented with interior design mood board ideas and unique custom carpet patterns, all drawn from inspiration discovered during our exploration trips. A truly unique perspective, allowing you to discover a region in detail and from a designer’s perspective.
