Blue and white in South Africa

Layer upon layer, blue on white. A home for relaxing, for entertaining family and friends. Expansive ocean views and expansive hospitality. Natural elements are celebrated yet subtle and a fresh look comes with a change out of accent colours. Imagine earthy tones or shades of green. Plett House by Yvonne O'Brien of South African The Private House Company.

A mock Tudor-style house in England

I love the gothic vibe and drama that comes with a Tudor-style house. This home in Hertfordshire, England is gorgeous and plays up on the Tudor architecture with dark blue and black accent colours. Some bold choices like the lighting and stools in the kitchen, a ceiling in high gloss navy and another in red, and black tile in the bathrooms help add to the drama. Another amazing project London-based Studio Duggan.

Contemporary coastal

"Seaside Residence was a partial renovation of a grand Georgian home. Our clients have a young family with 2 boys. An active life by the coast is ideal for them, and they wanted a home that was calm, but filled with personality - something young and fresh, that still honoured the traditional architectural style of their heritage house."

Melbourne-based interior designer Sally Caroline opened up the floorplan and created a sophisticated, contemporary look with statement furniture pieces and a colour palette that references the seaside location with soft neutrals and splashes of blue.

Toluca Lake home by Barbie Palomino

Modern luxury 

Modern luxury is all about attention to detail, bespoke craftsmanship and the opulence of simplicity. Quality over quantity. Distinctive, meticulous and refined. Like the Prahran Residence by Lucy Bock Design Studio. The simple juxtaposition of deep blue tile and marble in the kitchen island is sublime.
