Max Humphrey

There's colour and pattern, quirk and personality, new and old. It's lived in and layered and so much fun. Why would you be a minimalist when you can surround yourself with so much character? I couldn't choose just one home by Portland, Oregon based interior designer Max Humphrey so I cherry picked my favs.

Old-world elegance meets vintage in Madrid

I am completely in love with this renovated 19th century apartment in Madrid. The original architectural details including exposed beams and brickwork alone have me about to pass out, let alone the fact that this space is furnished with a wonderful random assortment of antique/vintage pieces. That chandelier over the dining table is especially scrumptious. Ana Cabellos and Elisa Fernández of La Traviesa de Conde Duque worked some magic here. Via Nuevo Estilo.

A Swedish apartment filled with vintage finds

Happy Easter dear DTI readers! It's a miserable day here in Ottawa but at least the rain is turning the brown grass green and we have no snow left. Bring on summer!! Whether you celebrate Easter or not hope you have a great day with family and friends. I'm off later to my folks' place for turkey dinner and I'm bringing the dessert (made easy thanks to an incredible bake sale the Country Cat Sanctuary held yesterday out in Kemptville). And tomorrow I hope to visit the sanctuary and bring home a super sweet, skinny little cat that I can't get out of my head that I think needs to live in a real home and get some extra attention (that is hard when you're living among 150 others). Anyhoo, I spotted this apartment in Malmö yesterday @ MilK Decoration and had to share because it's a Scandinavian dream of funky vintage finds and treasures from the homeowners' travels. Love the accents in black too.

Vintage and modern by Black Parrots Studio

I am head over heels in love with this British family home in Barnes and its striking decor. Full of character and drama while a bit on the classic side and pared back. A gorgeous black library complete with black leather chesterfield (*GASP!!!*) and an eclectic mic of vintage and modern furnishings and lighting make this just all kinds of awesome. By Sarah Mitchenall and Alexa de Castilho of Brighton-based Black Parrots Studio

Mount Pleasant

What a pleasure it would be to turn the key in the door of this lovely home. What a pleasure to call it home. The effortless style, the collection of personal treasures, that vintage sofa. The very aptly named Mount Pleasant residence by Vancouver-based interior design studio Riesco & Lapres.
