Hump day? What hump day? No we’re all on a virtual getaway to Marrakech, to Riad Mena & Beyond. Just when I though my love affair with all things Moroccan might be waning I’m smitten by this traditional riad with it’s minimalist interiors and iconic 20th century furniture pieces thrown into the mix. The “beyond” bit? Forty-five minutes outside of Marrakech, at the foot of the Atlas Mountains is the Riad Mena & Beyond outpost. A fully-functioning permaculture farm where you can spend the day in wonderful nature, enjoy a seasonal picnic, or even spend some nights in the rustically charming houses. I’ll be back at the main house waiting by the pool.
I am totally in love with this bedroom by Katie Leede. It is from a 2012 Hamptons showhouse and I am dying over the beautiful blue (what would you call this shade?), the graphic floral wallpaper, the upholstered sleigh bed, the shag rug, that incredible light fixture… YES PLEASE!!!
Everything British designer Hubert Zandberg touches turns to gold. I absolutely adore every interior design project this man has taken on. This one is no exception. This two-bedroom Chelsea apartment was renovated and designed to offer his out-of-town client a playful take on his own private gentleman’s club for short stays and meetings. Drama as soon as you enter with bold wallpaper (used throughout) and large scale furnishings, then the masculine vibe and dark colours stand out throughout the rest of the apartment. It is really stunning.

Definitely not your typical pastel palette. Not a sign of nursery pink or sugar Easter egg blues and greens. No, a more mature pastel scheme, muted, dirty, soft but still striking. Add to that beautiful textures, patinaed metallics and playful patterns and the result is a charming and stylish family home by Los Angeles-based Reath Design.
A combination of some really gorgeous wallpapers, some beautiful jewel toned accent colours, a breathtaking art collection and some graphic patterned textiles make this London townhouse incredibly dynamic and playful. A total jem by the master (as it runs in the family) Ashley Hicks.
