Living the American dream

Understated elegance with a play of pattern and texture tempered by fresh whites. Obvious attention to detail. At times eclectic but rooted in tradition. Think crisp white sheets with monogrammed pillows, showcase wallpaper in the powder room, dramatic den and a sea of white cabinetry and stone in the kitchen. Family living just so. Sophisticated but comfortable. For someone on the other side of the world this seems the American dream. By interior design firm J.K. Kling Associates.

Saturday drinks

Drinks tonight? I'd love to come but I can't. I have to work. You'll have a fab time at The Nelson. The fitout by Techné Architecture + Interior Design is so cool. Rustic meets maritime meets industrial, distressed and recycled. I'd call in sick to work but I'm the boss. Have a rum for me!

Another project by General Assembly

Here is another peek at a project by General Assembly. It is a single family home in Brooklyn built in the 1950s and was in desperate need of an overhaul. It now sports a mid-century modern vibe and some definite coolness. The reno included custom kitchen cabinetry with concrete counter tops; a kitchen island with built in wine storage; and additional custom storage throughout – including flip-top kitchen benches. Then there’s the solid oiled white oak suspended shelving we custom designed for the kitchen. The shelves are supported by steel bracing and anchored into a steel plate in the ceiling. By opening up the shelving above the sink, GA was able to capture the light from a nearby skylight and the surrounding windows to create an open, sun-filled environment for serious cooking. (Photos by Joe Fletcher)

An apartment by General Assembly 

I absolutely adore this Brooklyn apartment, designed by Sarah Lawlor Zames of General Assembly. After trying and failing to find an apartment with character, the owners of this space opted to combine two fairly lifeless new development apartments and renovate to perfectly suit their style. Bringing in as many natural materials as possible was important to these penthouse owners, so GA incorporated concrete wall and ceiling details, reclaimed wood floors, marble slabs in the shower and kitchen, and plenty of custom Walnut millwork. We designed steel and glass doors to divide public and private areas, and full height flush millwork doors to stretch the space upward.  This is a fantastic example of how to create a modern space that is comfortable and has personality. The wood flooring is an absolute dream, and is beautiful when combined with the marble and walnut. The southwestern vibe in the living room really works and the unexpected graphic wallpapers add some whimsy. I would not change a thing. Lucky owners! (photos by Joe Fletcher)

The marble against the walnut and matte black is stunning.

Retro vintage

Ok, I had to share one last project by The New Design Group....mainly because this one was clear right away who inspired some of the bold decor choices. :) We wanted to instill a fun atmosphere in this beautiful townhouse by using a bold palette. To give the space a younger feel we decided to paint out most of the period features (to tone them down) and then layer styles from different eras for an eclectic and inviting look. We sourced and repurposed items from a variety of places: thrift shops, antique dealers, high street and custom made orders (the hot pink lacquered coffee table is based on an original design by Abigail Ahern).
