Playing favourites

We try not to play favourites here on Desire to Inspire but sometimes we just have to fess up. There will always be a special spot in our design hearts for those who are ahead of the pack, who repeatedly create homes where every room goes straight into our inspiration files, where we would move in in a heart beat. Jessica Helgerson and her team are such designers. Just look at this 1920's Portland home with its soft and muted colour palette and a modern, fresh fitout that respects the history of the house. Actually I'd be happy to just live in the kitchen a la Cinderella. Neely House by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design.

A modern....farmhouse

We have featured many modern farmhouses on the blog over the years, and according to Anthony Michael this is such a dwelling... but this may be the least farmhouse-y home we have ever featured. Not one bit of reclaimed wood to be had! I am not sure what part of it constitutes a farmhouse but I frankly don't really care because it is beautiful and I love the kitchen - especially that pretty backsplash.

A renovated family compound in California

This Healdsburg, CA home is a family compound that was once stuck in the 80's. Jeff Schlarb's team took it to a whole other level, with cool, neutral tones, classic style with some traditional and bold furnishings mixed together for a little unexpected combo, and a very relaxing atmosphere. The perfect getaway with really sweet views.

A 1980's bungalow gets a boho makeover in Bangalow

A joyous celebration of all things boho in the hills behind the beautiful blue beaches of northern New South Wales. In a part of the country known for its lush greenery and laid back alternative lifestyle, it's not surprising to find such a colourful, individual home. Stylish, fun, liveable and lively ... and it once was a boring 1980's brick bungalow. A home about personality and passion by Byron Bay based Alida and Miller.
