Kishani Perera favourites

I die for that rug. And painting the trim and part of the stairs black is such an easy solution to add drama to otherwise boring architectural detail. 

I could definitively chill here. Fantastic window. 

Such a cozy living room. I can see myself sitting there whilst planning a trip to Africa.

When pink accents actually work really well. 

I want this art. LOVE!

Dark bedrooms are so fabulous for the cocooning feeling they exude. I miss my chocolate brown bedroom. 

I desperately want to move to a warmer climate and have a porch like this. I'd live out here.

Canal House

Monday means escape day. Run away from the beginning of the work week and dream of faraway places. Enter the dark and moody luxury of the Canal House boutique hotel in Amsterdam's Jordaan district. Waiting within is a secret green oasis bathed in dappled light. Light and dark, old and new, drawing inspiration from Dutch history and art. Shall we run away to the dark side? Work can wait.

An air raid shelter turned loft

My dream of living in a loft has never wavered, and the idea of living in a very industrial loft and having the challenge of warming the space up has always been intriguing. This loft isn't necessarily all that warm and cozy, but I really love the dramatic vibe it gives off. It is a former Nazi air raid shelter (complete with WWII bullet holes) erected in 1942 in central Berlin, and is the home of ad agency founder and publisher, Christian Boros, and his wife, Karen. Formerly devoid of natural light, the homeowners had the 3000 sq m bunker completely reconfigured and added massive windows. They have an amazing collection of furniture (and art of course - love the upside down head!), and the dark flooring and concrete walls make it dark and moody but the windows keep it fairly bright. Oh, to have that much space..... (via Freunde von Freunden)

Darkly

Move away from the light my darling. Revel in the shadows. Deep within the bosom of this home, retreat, renew, resist the trauma of the harsh and jarring world. Live your life ... darkly. Startling dark beauty by New York based Sawyer Berson.

The Hedgehog's nest

This dark and moody apartment is in Rio de Janeiro may well be the nest of that spiny creature deep within the earth but no, instead it is the creation of Brazilian architectural firm Ouriço (Portuguese for hedgehog). Outside it may be bright and sunny and tropical but inside it is calm and cocooning with graphic punches and vintage finds. Love the hero wall of books, the industrial lights and the warmth of the wood. Like a den, a club, a nest.
