Award winning Los Angeles based Black Lacquer Design say they have a a penchant for all things pretty. Perhaps we better add edgy, fresh and fun. And their name? It might just have something to do with the belief that almost every room can benefit from a bit of black and a little lacquer. I just didn’t expect it on the ceiling and I must say I’m a convert!
It’s dramatic. It’s stylish. It’s edgy and it’s the show home (or should I say apartment) by Studio ro+ca for CasaCor Rio 2017, the largest and most complete exhibition of architecture, interior design and landscaping in the Americas showcasing the best of the best. All I can say is ouch! Brazilian design is so hot.
Nothing beats a wonderfully executed conversion, like this barn located in Yorkshire, England. I absolutely love the vintage details with some modernism via some black and yellow. Exposed beams, stone walls and tongue and groove panelling make this extra special. Available as a location home via jj Locations.
A love of dark colours is evident in this 2100 ft² renovated and extended home in London by Brian O’Tuama Architects. So it’s a win in my book already, and then they threw in some of my favourite Farrow & Ball wallpapers, plus the paint job on the exterior wins bonus points. (Photos: Ed Reeve)
Rich velvets and metallics, fine art and carefully curated collections, dark corners and soaring ceilings. It’s all about the drama, a glamorous modern drama. Luxurious, refined, sophisticated, rich. West Village Residence by New York based Carlyle Designs.
