Dirty pastels

Definitely not your typical pastel palette. Not a sign of nursery pink or sugar Easter egg blues and greens. No, a more mature pastel scheme, muted, dirty, soft but still striking. Add to that beautiful textures, patinaed metallics and playful patterns and the result is a charming and stylish family home by Los Angeles-based Reath Design.

A pretty seaside home

Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of Jersey Ice Cream Co. sure do know how to add rustic, feel-good character to a home. This summer and weekend getaway in Long Island was about 10 years old and the only interesting element it had was wood beamed ceilings. This creative duo added a sense of history that would make you think this house had been in the family for decades. With pale pastels, a stunning kitchen and a bit of gorgeous Farrow & Ball wallpaper, this home now has all the character the homeowners could ask for.

Modern pastels

I'm still reeling from the crowded chaos of my Christmas shopping. It's time for another getaway to calm my jangled nerves and as for those of you facing the long, bleak hours of a hump day at work I'm guessing you'd like a virtual escape too. How about the soothing pastel prettiness of London's Leman Locke Hotel by Grzywinski+Pons? I love the play of powder-puff pastels against the raw concrete and the modern minimalism. Meet you in the bar for a drink. Something pink perhaps?

A Scandinavian style apartment in Poland

A big thanks to Polish interior designer Iza Olszewska for sending along these photos of a 55 sq m apartment in Warsaw she designed. It has a Scandinavian vibe with bold, graphic tile and wallpaper and pretty pastel colour accents. This is super fun and bright and OMG I want that bathtub!!! (Photos: Joanna Korczynska)

Happy in Happy Valley

A dark and dingy 3 bedroom apartment in Hong Kong's Happy Valley has been completely reworked and revived by architectural firm Lim + Lu. The idea was to explore the multi-use of spaces through a series and glass and black steel sliding doors. Rooms could expand and contract, be open or intimate all dependent on how the owners wished to use the space. Colour and pattern not only add a vibrancy and freshness to the apartment but also help delineate core living spaces from the extensions.
