No ornamentation, no excess, no ostentation. Beautiful finishes, attention to detail, quality, quality, quality and an emphasis on function. It’s the formula Madrid-based architectural and interior design firm Ventura chose to create this modern, minimalist renovation within a historic apartment. Clean, sleek luxury with warmth and style.
Modernizing the traditional can be tricky but I think the folks of architecture and construction firm Design Platform based out of Denver, Colorado really nailed this one (I assume it’s a complete renovation of an older home). Lots of elements I am quite smitten with like the entire exterior, the yellow front door, the exposed brick, the white washed wood floor, the massive sleek kitchen, and each and every bathroom. How cool are those designs in the hex tile?!?! I’m imagining how that would have looked in my hex tiled floor from the front door through the vestibule and foyer and down into the kitchen. *insert gaping mouth here*
It’s a new, squeaky clean working week and I ‘m marking the occasion with the perfect spot to get squeaky clean yourself. It’s this fabulous bathroom by Jaclyn Peters Design. Love the modern meets retro feel with on trend black fittings and clean lined wooden vanities paired with those amazing 50s inspired sconces and the little hairpin legged stool. Love the beautiful light streaming in and the subtle luxury of marble tiles. You can see more Jaclyn’s work here.
Interior designer Nuria Alia calls it a Sensory Alarm Clock (it was her design for Casa Decor 2017). A super fun, super sunshiny (is that a word?) place to start your day. Pastel pops and pattern play, shiny metals and sleek velvet all with a nod to Art Deco. What a way to up the energy levels.
What appears at first to be a sleek and refined if somewhat restrained West London Townhouse takes an about face and breaks out the colour and the fun. Art Deco riffs meet 80’s Memphis murmurings and by the time the terrazzo takes centre stage it’s all over. You’re in love. By London-based architectural and interior design firm Waldo Works.
