When I get my own place I'm going to have parquet flooring. I absolutely adore the style!

I saw this home on tv a while ago. luckily I found a video of it on youtube. this is paulina rubio’s home in barcelona, spain. she presented it on the tv show mtv cribs a while back. I absolutley love this place, and was so impressed that the architect who built it [ricardo bofill], did so from an old concrete factory!

here’s the video:
paulina rubio’s home.

and the story behind the home [click el taller on the bottom left, and then the image that turns to color] with some flash images.
enjoy.

paulina comes across as a complete nut
writhing around on the bed in her underwear

the house itself is interesting.....
i love the white.....the high ceilings and arched doorways.....
not a fan of the dark wood in and around the kitchen though- its far too heavy compared to the rest of the light airy space.........

thx for the link-

i adore barcelona- would love to have a home there

Oh, some parts of Linda's home I really like, thanks for posting! I didn't know Australians also had white!

These are all from Finnish magazines, Finnish homes. The first apartment is small, but good ideas save space. The bed goes up in the wall, behind sliding doors!

Emilia - wow! So many scans! Thank you honey!

However, to me, these homes are all very similar in style and remind me of an IKEA catalogue Same colour palette and all! They are nice but they don't feel lived in, have little character and it's hard to find the owner's personality stamped on them...
