A not-so-Victorian apartment in London

A big thanks to Selina for sending us the link (via The Modern House) to this fantastic and strange apartment in London. Here are some specs: Designed by architect David Kohn, this very special four-bedroom apartment (approx. 1,633 sq ft) with balcony and garden is arranged over two storeys of a converted Victorian terraced house in Queen’s Park. The building is very well-maintained, with steps up to a communal front door and entrance hall. This flat is entered on the raised ground floor. It has a large living space with a bay window at the front of the property, which flows into an open-plan dining room and kitchen with separate larder. From the kitchen, you go down half a level and find a study area with access to the garden via a handmade powder-coated-steel walkway. Along the hallway are built-in, angled cupboards. The first two bedrooms and bathroom are found at this level, with the larger one at the rear having direct access into the garden. Down another level are two large bedrooms with lots of built-in storage, and a further family bathroom. I am smitten this apartment - the crown moldings and the fireplace are dreamy but ah mah gawd what have they done with the floors?!?! Yellow, green and red stain? HUH? And don't get me started on those massive baseboards. Epic fail. Kudos for creativity I suppose.

Colour candy

It's a photoshoot for iconic Melbourne store Fenton & Fenton's quilts and rugs but to my it's pure eye candy. Colour, pattern, layering. Love.

Can't go wrong with black and white

Black and white is such a great starting point for a home. In this case it is white walls and BEAUTIFUL glossy black hardwood. (Gawd how I would love floors like that. DAMN CATS!) Here the owners added lots of colour and kid friendly furnishings to make it energizing and fun. Take out all the colour and add lots of wood, grey and brown and you've got another totally different vibe against the black and white. Easy peasy. Via Hus & Hem.

Eccentric old Europe

When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.
