Happy Friday!

I was only going to use these first 2 photos for this post because OMG...but this Sicilan vacation home of architect Laurent Buttazzoni is so fun I had to include a few more. Via Architectural Digest France. Happy Friday! Peace out. 


Holly Hickey Moore

I recently discovered interior designer Holly Hickey Moore's work and I love her style. She is focused on creating vibrant, layered, and eclectic interiors. With every project, she strives to design a timeless living environment with multi-generational appeal. She is edgy (and a little rebellious), designing spaces that are complex and unique, yet intuitive and comfortable. She primarily works in New England and Texas but is looking to branch out to New Zealand (where her husband is from) and Australia (perhaps I could convince her she needs me as an assistant ;)). This home in particular I really like for its funky midcentury modern/retro vibe. To complement the architecture, the look is inspired by Palm Springs in the 60s. Accordingly, artwork and décor is bright, bold and beautiful. Restored vintage furnishings and lighting are mixed in with new elements. Additionally, the white walls act as a canvas for the colorful works of art, most of which are original pieces by the family members. The open floor plan and glazing across the back of the house gives a sense of being outside. Can I get a HELL YEAH for the tumbled block tiles above. !!!!!!

A simple apartment in architecture and decor, but sometimes all you really need is simplicity and the basics. Located in central Madrid, by interior architect and designer Juan Carlos Fernández.

An eclectic apartment in Madrid

I have a thing for eclectic spaces, where it appears that the homeowner does alot of thrift shopping and most pieces have not originated from Ikea. This simple yet eclectic apartment in Madrid caught my attention. It has some fun, graphic art mixed with mid-century furnishings and accessories (ie. beautiful West German vases!). I personally would have maybe added some colour to a wall or 2 (maybe they aren't allowed) and I find the dining room very underwhelming. Other than that it is a wonderful, bright open space that is very inviting. Via Architectural Digest Spain, photos by Asier Rua.

Geremia Design - Canning Street

I am stoked to feature this home by Lauren Geremia of Geremia Design now that I got my hands on these fabulous juicy photos (by Melissa Kaseman btw). It is mid-century sophisticated with an youthful edge. We wanted to give our client an updated and contemporary look for his one story Craftsmen home, including furniture with detailing that nods to the architecture of the space. Our client travels frequently, but when he is home likes to host dinner parties and cook for his friends. We created a comfortable living and dining space that can accommodate guests, and curated a evocative selection of contemporary art that suits his taste. LED lighting and a custom designed hand oxidized brass media unit are design highlights of the project.
