How Ashley Hicks magically transformed his rental apartment

Low ceilings, beige wall-to-wall carpet, plain doors, ugly windows, a grim in a rental isn't easy but designer Ashley Hicks certainly worked magic with his rental apartment. Graphic paint treatment on the walls, a photo transparency covering an ugly window, upholstery nails fancying up doors, paint details on cheap linen roller blinds, pendant lights made from copper and black paint, a handmade screen using a map of London to hide another ugly window, red vinyl and striped webbing used to spruce up a hallway, and the list goes on. Ashley may have spent a ton of time and energy transforming his apartment and customizing every square inch but the result is incredibly unique and dynamic and clearly well worth it.

The Oakland home of designer Melanie Coddington

The Oakland home of Melanie Coddington has been a labor of love for the team at Coddington Design. The updated midcentury home features a playful use of pattern, as well as fun and daring colors against a neutral backdrop that will stand the test of time and trend. Multiple seating areas in the living room allow for easy entertaining and relaxing, and the bright, bold kitchen is the perfect place for family dinners. The home is pet and child friendly without sacrificing style. Such a beautiful home that is timeless, playful and colourful.

Whimsical art in an elegant home

San Francisco designer Jeff Schlarb describes his style as simply "rad elegance", and that is precisely how I would describe this home he designed for an art collecting client. The artwork is bold and quirky and very much whimsical, and he managed to pair it with bold, modern, elegant furnishings for an overall look of cohesive radness. LOVE!!!
