A penthouse in SoHo by Studio DB

Here is another other project in New York recently completed by the talented design/build & interiors firm Studio DB.  This is a 5,286 sq ft penthouse in SoHo that is outfitted with beautiful vintage furnishings, a spacious kitchen and views to absolutely die for. One of the main design goals behind Penthouse A was to keep the space feeling light but with rich and natural materials. The stone was honed, the tiles hand-glazed, the cabinetry and floor finishes were customized and crafted specifically for One Vandam. The triplex staircase creates a spectacular centerpiece for the Penthouse, taking advantage of the triple-height space and creating a dramatic effect. A custom LARIAT light fixture from APPARATUS was chosen to emphasize this breathtaking space. Additionally, sculptural furniture and luxurious textiles were sourced to further elevate the space. The materials throughout the apartment are natural woods and stones that are used in a modern way. The kitchen, for example, is a bleached walnut, which allows for the beautiful character of the wood to read through, but the lighter tone is modern. The blue de savoie stone backsplash is honed to expose the natural elements of the material. Additionally, we designed a line of plumbing specifically for this project with Watermark, which is based in Brooklyn. The handle of the faucets are inspired by a stud, that play off both the artistic history of Soho and the refined jewelry of the high end vendors that currently define Soho.

Screen House by Carter Williamson

When a home is totally unassuming from the exterior and then you walk in and POW! The dreamiest of black kitchens complete with black penny round tile backsplash. (Man I love black kitchens! So sexy!) But it doesn't stop there....a bathroom completely clad in black penny rounds? YES PLEASE!!! Screen House by Australian architecture firm Carter Williamson.

Pati's dark and maximalist mini home 

I wanted to share another home with you today that I fell in love with on Instagram. A while back I met Pati Robins virtually through this awesome social media outlet and her and her home have become instant favourites. Let me tell you a bit about Pati before I take you further into her home, but as you can see from the photo above of her entryway, Pati's joie de vivre and bold style is immediately apparent. Pati is a Polish chick who moved to the U.K. in 2007. She rents a small 2 bedroom, disabled-adapted home that is 78 square meters and shares it with her disabled veteran husband, daughter Olivia and 2 dogs. When they moved in to this home it looked NOTHING like this. It was painted in magnolia with smelly smoke-stained walls and a sloping mud patch of a backyard...clearly she has free reign from her landlord when it comes to painting her home. WOHOO! Over the past 10 years Pati has slowly renovated and decorated her home herself on an almost non-existent budget (having only paid a plumber once to install a radiator). She's so damn crafty that she even dyed a leather chair black! (see 3rd photo below) Oh, and did I mention she's a fabulous photographer??? This girl is so freaking talented!! And sweet! I just love her to bits and am so stoked that she was eager and willing to let me share her home here on the blog, which she has been reading for years! Mutual love fest happening here folks. Anyway, may I introduce you to Pati's dark and maximalist mini-home! *insert black hearts here*
