Playing favourites

We try not to play favourites here on Desire to Inspire but sometimes we just have to fess up. There will always be a special spot in our design hearts for those who are ahead of the pack, who repeatedly create homes where every room goes straight into our inspiration files, where we would move in in a heart beat. Jessica Helgerson and her team are such designers. Just look at this 1920's Portland home with its soft and muted colour palette and a modern, fresh fitout that respects the history of the house. Actually I'd be happy to just live in the kitchen a la Cinderella. Neely House by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design.

The new luxury

Oh the drama! High contrast less-is-more palette, soaring ceilings, walls of flowing fabrics, rich metals and dark woods yet this new luxury is about carefully curated opulence. No OTT gaudy glitz but a well considered elegance. Historic Nashville mansion renovation by interiors firm Chad James Group.

Sinuous and sexy

With a spiral staircase wraps its way upwards like a snake coiling languidly this NYC apartment is seriously sexy. Let's add a third "S" - subtle. The luxury level is high and there are certainly touches of bling but it's pared back, restrained. I love this look. I'm not quite sure what to call it though. It's a definite reference to the 80s in its materials and shapes with a watered down colour palette of that decade's greys and pinks. Like the 80s with a really good IG filter. Then there are hints of Art Deco and mid century. Definitely my new design style crush by Michelle Gerson Interiors.
