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.

Clock House

I love the use of glass bricks, terrazzo, tiles, rubber and plywood, even the quirky "brain-coloured" tile and clock on the facade. Tired and dated is now energetic and creative.
