Traditional with hints of modern

The design approach of Louisiana based firm Ty Larkins Interiors is "liveable elegant modern". Mixing antique/vintage pieces with modern is the way they roll and coincidentally, how I roll too. This home is on the traditional side but has some modern lines that makes it less stuffy and more cool. Inspired by city houses, this detached Greek Revival Townhouse was designed and built in an established leafy neighborhood by Ty Larkins Interiors. Every effort was taken to make it convincingly "period" suggesting it had been built a century earlier. The traditional and formal interior architecture is juxtaposed against a young and modern decor, creating a beautiful and unexpected tension.

Here

You'll find me here just a little later in the day. When the sun is setting and the fire is just lit. I've just turned on the Noguchi lamp and settled on Le Bambole sofa with a large glass of wine. Unfortunately as I can't get out so easily and Google Assistant is no help will you lift the needle onto the jazz record for me? Venice Bungalow by Studiohus.

Modern and white in a Cape Cod style home

White and bright and modern in this newly built home in Brentwood, Los Angeles designed by Sharon Taftian. Fabulous touches of brass throughout, and every new house needs black framed windows. They make such a graphic impact. Makes me want to paint all of wood framed leaded interior windows out. Added it to the to-do list!

Hernandez Greene

Katrina Hernandez and Joshua Greene both had careers in the fashion industry before transitioning to interior design, opening their own firm Hernandez Greene in 2014. It would be cheesy to say that their rooms are "well dressed" but in fact they are. Well considered, well balanced, almost classic but with an edge, a bold use of colour in an otherwise traditional room or a statement piece of room "jewellery". Chic and sophisticated, stylish and impeccably tailored like this West Hollywood hacienda from their impressive portfolio.
