An earthy colonial by Maurizio Pellizzoni

This home (dubbed the Antigua House) in Chelsea, London is all about neutrals, graphic art (a favourite it seems) and stripes - a winning combination. Antigua House is so-called because Maurizio Pellizzoni was asked to create interiors which echo its owner’s second home in the Caribbean. Evoking colonial charm, Maurizio opted for polished wood floors, natural linens, coir matting and a cream, taupe and chocolate colour palette.

Parisian love affair

Yes my love affair continues. Just one more apartment by Emma Donnersberg Interiors. Oh so chic, so elegant with a wonderful collection of global artifacts including three Tiwi Island burial poles. Such an amazing collection my eyes can't settle. They are flitting from treasure to teasure.

Indigo + Ochre

I spotted this bathroom above while scouring Pinterest one day looking for brass inspiration for my kitchen. It is what solidified my decision to go with brass hardware and faucet. Shanti and Courtney of Brooklyn-based Indigo + Ochre are responsible for this beautiful bathroom and the other spaces below. Brass seems to be a favourite of theirs too, as well as incorporating ethnic finds in their designs. The combination results in timeless spaces filled with character and soul.

Annette's apartment in Oslo

Back in the summer I blogged the beautiful work of interior designer and photographer Annette Nordstrøm, so I was excited when Annette emailed the other day wanting to share with us her dream apartment in Oslo, Norway. I can see why it's a dream. It has fantastic architectural details like huge windows, arched cielings, exposed beams, old radiators etc. etc. Annette and her stylist partner Christian have created such a stunning home, utilizing many pieces of furniture that were inherited or found at auction, mixed with Moroccan details for an eclectic, global vibe. The neutral palette, mix of textures and patterns along with the architecture has me completely smitten.

Maristela Gorayeb

I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the portfolio of Brazilian interior designer Maristela Gorayeb. Her style is a favourite of mine - a mix of ethnic and modern. She works with each, and the 2 in conjunction, so beautifully. It's about neutral backdrops with jewel tones pops of colour and lots of textures and patterns. Maristela's vibe is not for minimalists nor die-hard modernists. :)
