Another lovely home from Domus Nova. This time I'm loving the 2 sofas, the quirky art - except maybe the saddle and the demon with boobs in the dining room- and all furnishings but the dining table. What NOT to do with silver leaf. (Does it drive anyone else nuts that there is no light fixture above the dining table?!)
Warm whites with rich wood accents, a dash of regal purple. Texture and layering. Elegance but liveability. Stylishly curated art and furniture. A study in restraint and good taste in Woollahra, Sydney. Love the cascade of frames down the kitchen dining area, the little details like the glass doorstop, the texture of the grasscloth walls, the sculptural elements, the flash of sexy, narrow legs on furniture. From Australian architects Pearse. (More on this firm here.)
Architect and furniture designer Pedro Useche has created this open plan home, his own, settled in a lush tropical garden in São Paulo, Brazil. The Venezuelan designer surrounds himself with his own furniture pieces as well as mid century classics but what I love most is the riot of art that brings life, an extrovert personality to the large white spaces that are a perfect counterfoil to the vibrant green surrounds. A home full of discoveries for the eye. I can imagine walking in and racing from spot to spot exploring all the treasures of a creative mind. The wonderful photography is by Fran Parente.
My twin sister found these photos on Sköna hem on our lunch break and I had to post them because I think these are absolutely brilliant ways to achieve high impact looks with a little bit of paint. And into my inspiration folder they go!
