It’s all about personality. Make a stand and say no to the boring and mundane. Don’t be a sheep. Don’t follow the crowd. No need to keep up with the Joneses. No. Be yourself and make your home an extension of who you are and what you love. Kensal Rise Factory by London-based Maddus Creative.

Regent’s Park Grand House

Posted on Thu, 3 Mar 2016 by KiM

I do not necessarily gravitate towards glamourous, “fancy schmancy” decor but I absolutely adore anything that Hubert Zandberg Interiors gets their hands on so today I bring you fancy schmancy home in Regent’s Park, London. I am not sure I would feel comfortable showing up at this home in my Ann D combat boots and putting my feet up on anything but if you’re going to go all out and have the funds to do so, then THIS IS IT. I would just be happy with that crystal chandelier in the foyer.

40 square meters in Milan

A small apartment in Milan, Italy uses a clever visual trick to increase the sense of space and define zones within its otherwise open plan. Vertical pieces of larch and two black painted plywood panels delineate the rooms allowing the eye to travel easily throughout the space. Clever interior design by the Milanese studio TOMOarchitects.

Upstate Colonial

Posted on Thu, 3 Mar 2016 by midcenturyjo

I like to think that my taste in decorating runs to the eclectic end of the spectrum. Admittedly I have dabbled with mid century and Hollywood Regency. I even tried minimalism. All abject failures. I couldn’t be so rigid in my taste. I liked a little bit of this, a smattering of that. High end and junk shop, family heirloom and battered hand-me-down, modern and antique and all of this arranged lovingly into my 1860 house. No wonder I’m totally smitten by this Upstate Colonial by New York-based interior designer Shawn Henderson. The interiors are sophisticated, layered and relaxed. New meets old with honesty and style to create a simple beauty.

I have completely fallen in love with this apartment. Iconic mid-century furnishings in each room, a sleek and chic kitchen, and a dark, sexy bathroom. By interior architect George Livissianis. Photos: Tom Ferguson
