Simple Pleasures

A peaceful place to read, write, think or dream.

Atmospheric in Madrid

Designers Ciszak Dalmas, Alberto Gobbino and Andrea Caruso took an archeological approach to renovating an old Madrid apartment, painstakingly removing layer after layer of linoleum, wallpaper, paint and false ceilings to reveal the bare bones of the original space. Now a home and studio to Ciszak Dalmas and his family (with creative partners Alberto and Andrea working there by day), it's a remarkably serene space that is conducive to creative thinking.

Colour Theory

The inspiring apartment of the Danish artist and educator Aliki Skytte is a perfect example of how a little creativity is all you need to have a beautiful home. Constantly experimenting with the look of her space, Aliki uses white as a backdrop for her playful approach to colour — and her DIY, fearless transformation of flea market finds is happy encouragement to be adventurous when decorating one's own home.
