An apartment in Milan in dark neutrals

I found this exquisite apartment in Milan by interior designer Paolo Badesco and had to share because Europeans always seem to know what to do when it comes to architecture and not following rules. There is nothing trendy about this apartment and that is why I love it. Also, THOSE CHEVRON WOOD FLOORS. AND THAT MARBLE BATHROOM. WOW! As an aside, I can't stop laughing. Did the dog in the photo above eat the trim on the door and this is his guilty face?

The view

When the view is so spectacular why try to compete with your interior design? You'll only come off second best. Instead be understated, sophisticated, complementary. Love the subtle cloud references in this stylishly simple apartment in Sydney by Ioanna Lennox Interiors. I'm quite sure living here would at times be like living in the clouds.

House of Ideas

It may have been only existed as an installation for the Lodz Design Festival earlier this month but how amazing would it be if this hauntingly beautiful old house could retain its modern trappings, even better if I could live there. A fantastical world of peeling ceilings and tattered wallpaper as backdrop to cutting edge furniture, striking art and a jungle of indoor plants. This slightly fractured dream of a domain is by Design Alive and you can read more including sources here.

Industrial rough luxe in a North London Edwardian home

Last week I featured this project by Sue Miller of Mad Cow Interiors. Of course her home is totally rad so I had to share it as well. Sue used reclaimed materials and up-cycling to create bespoke furniture, with a goal to create an industrial rough luxe theme, mixed with various mid century modern touches. Lots of dark walls, bold colour accents and patterns in fabrics and wallpaper are common to Sue's style and this is all prominent in her own home. So much fun and energy and creativity.

Here

I just want to be here. Oh I also want to be glamorous and rich and as young as I was in the 80s. You may think it is a decade that taste forgot and how on earth would we want it back but then along comes a room that has its design zeitgeist so firmly in that era and it's love at first sight.
