Gunkelman Flesher

It's been quite some time since Minneapolis interior design firm Gunkelman Flesher has been featured on DTI so how about a long-overdue encore. They have an undeniable creativity and unique use of colour, but on the other hand a wonderful ability to keep things muted yet still eye-catching. I love the lines of the furniture used throughout. Captivating, sophisticated and timeless.

John Jacob

Sophisticated and glamorous but with just a touch of the earthy. It's a look that is grounded and yet well travelled. It's part grand tour, part drama and tension, part family estate, part luxury hotel,  part Out of Africa and always elegant. South African interior designer John Jacob doesn't just interpret his client's needs and he creates a dream home. Sundown drinks on the patio? Maybe after a soak in the tub ... glass in hand of course.

Swanky

I was scoping out the portfolio of architecture and interior design firm West Chin the other day to see if there were more photos I could showcase here that Jo hadn't already done in her post back in June. I came across a swanky pad that I thought was worthy of it's own post. This flat is modern but not too harsh, with funky bits here and there (including a couple sets of boobs and a pair of diaper chairs), and even some cute spaces for the kids (the parents must lock them in their rooms for fear of dirty hands on the furniture). FAB!

Hey ho it's retro!

"For the newly-wed, the about to-be-wed or indeed any young couple, setting up home is one of the most exciting of adventures. But although it is - and should be - a marvellous experience, real problems can arise which may create anxieties, perhaps even mar the pleasure of the occasion." - introduction from The Complete Homemaker,  edited by Isabel Moore, Marshall Cavendish, London, 1976. And here dear readers are some of the solutions for a harmonious life together. Enjoy!
