How Ashley Hicks magically transformed his rental apartment

Low ceilings, beige wall-to-wall carpet, plain doors, ugly windows, a grim kitchen....living in a rental isn't easy but designer Ashley Hicks certainly worked magic with his rental apartment. Graphic paint treatment on the walls, a photo transparency covering an ugly window, upholstery nails fancying up doors, paint details on cheap linen roller blinds, pendant lights made from copper and black paint, a handmade screen using a map of London to hide another ugly window, red vinyl and striped webbing used to spruce up a hallway, and the list goes on. Ashley may have spent a ton of time and energy transforming his apartment and customizing every square inch but the result is incredibly unique and dynamic and clearly well worth it.

Styled by Linda Åhman

Stylin' spaces just right until they become totally picture perfect. Love the work of Stockholm based stylist/decorator Linda Åhman. Also totally digging the photo below with the 2 tone wall with a border of photos. What a great idea!

A funky Brooklyn brownstone

I remember seeing this home quite some time ago and being completely smitten. I stumbled upon it again recently and was shocked that we hadn't featured it yet. After all of this time I still wish I had the balls to graffiti something in my home. Brooklyn brownstone with funk by Kelly Behun.


Maven loves pale pink

I could not help but notice Catherine and Patricia of Maven seem to have a crush on pale pink so I thought I would do a little round-up of their spaces featuring this colour. A lovely reminder why I love my dining room painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine so much. :)


Jacky Winter Gardens

As cute as a button inside and out. Melbourne, Victoria, Australia guesthouse renovations and interior design by Hearth Studio. To note: I love how they painted over the trim a couple of inches in some rooms and a couple of feet above it in others. A creative and very simple idea to painting a space without really painting a space. (Photos: Sean Fennessy, and more details here).
