Vintage masculine

Vintage masculine. Rustic meets Manhattan manly. Why am I trying to put a label on it when it already tells a story we can all understand? It's an eclectic mix of country in the city with a hint of industrial, found object and gentleman's den. Leather and wood, wool and metal. Layers of texture with stories to tell. West 60th Street by Manhattan-based BHDM Design.

Reconnecting with Brian Paquette - part 1

It has been a little while since Jo shared some projects by Seattle interior designer Brian Paquette (here and here), and it seems he has been busy lately so I thought I would share a couple of his latest projects. This one is a home in Victoria, B.C. and has a bit of a gentlemen's club vibe going on. I dig that style for all its leather (chesterfields!) and dark colours. OH YEAH.

Design from Taiwan

Whether their firm's name is HAO Design Studio or Ivan House Design or just House Design, I am smitten with the creativity and edginess of this Taiwan based interior design firm. These is a smattering chosen from several projects, but they mostly all have a masculine vibe, with industrial touches and are hip and fun for what I presume is a young-ish clientele. Cool work.

Like salted caramel. Luscious and rich. Morish. An adult space layered with texture, carefully strewn with objet d'art, the luxe and somewhat foppish countered by the industrial and abstract nature of the artworks. An elegant, masculine home. Vivienda Santiago Castillo by Madrid-based designer Lorenzo Castillo.
