I was shocked to discover that Bastien Halard of Halard - Halard Design is based in New York City. After perusing his glorious portfolio I thought for sure he was located in Paris. But then it all made sense - he studied architecture and furniture design in Paris. His spaces are wonderfully eclectic, an intriguing blend of classic and contemporary, with lots of raw edges. J'adore.
Touching lightly on the meadow in which it sits, this amazing home by Finne Architects celebrates not only the view but the craftsmanship and artisan beauty of a carefully considered building. Nils Finne calls it crafted modernism, with cast bronze inserts at the front door, variegated laser-cut steel railing panels, a curvilinear cast-glass kitchen counter, waterjet-cut aluminum light fixtures and many custom furniture pieces. Interior, exterior, relation to site, all integrated, all pleasing to the mind and soul. The Mazama house located in the Methow Valley of Washington State, a secluded mountain valley on the eastern edge of the North Cascades, about 200 miles northeast of Seattle.
Victoria Sullivan is a Brooklyn-based British expat whose style is a combination of all things easy-going and eclectic, refined and charming. Victoria has an uncanny knack of transforming the ordinary and unloved to highly covetable and unique. Most of these photos are of her own home, a former dilapidated townhouse she and her husband purchased several years ago. After a gut renovation, Victoria sanded, painted, filled and fixed every element of every room, maintaining as much of the authentic architectural detailing as possible. Cool paint tones on period-detailed walls create the back-drop for key elements of furniture, artwork and lighting that Victoria finds from a combination of antique specialists and local stoop sales. She curates the spaces with carefully selected pieces from a mix of eras and sources. With a love of wallpaper, textiles and upholstery, she remodeled forlorn finds and was able to breathe life and charm into every piece of furniture that followed her home. Books, ceramics and other such collectibles are layered into every shelf and surface, making irresistible stories that lead your eye through her interiors. Victoria and her partner Sandee Edelman are out to create eclectic spaces that are a Brooklyn/British mix, and that is Mrs. Sullivan Interiors.
Here is another recent project by Brian Paquette that I am loving. It has the same sort of dark, masculine vibe as the one featured earlier today but the walls are pretty much all white. It keeps the spaces brighter but the dark furnishings are now really accentuated against the white.
