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.
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. !!!!!!

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.
