Mountain House by Studio Razavi

Posted on Thu, 21 Dec 2017 by KiM

Winter would be way more bearable if I could spend it here. Mountain House in Manigod, France by Studio Razavi Architecture. In this highly preserved Alpine valley, stringent architectural guidelines allow for very little freedom of architectural expression. Everything from building height/width ratio to roof slope, via building material and window sizes are strictly controlled to enforce what is locally perceived as patrimony protection but de facto creating camp architecture, endlessly mimicking traditional mountain homes.

A wonderful marriage of Scandi and Moroccan, ranch and rock and roll. Think neutrals mixed with white where black is a highlight, simple and tactile and organic and fun. Welcome to bleached beauty that is Woodbrook by Lisa Sherry Interieurs.

A living room accented in blues and greens

Posted on Wed, 20 Dec 2017 by KiM

Loving the fresh, vibrant vibe in this living room featured in the 2017 Serenbe Designer Showhouse via Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles. The living room started with the designers’ shared love of textiles and travel, melding global influences. Nina Nash and Don Easterling of Mathews Furniture + Design took cues from Kit Kemp’s bohemian English boutique hotel concepts. “It’s about blending timeless pieces with daredevil design,” Nash says. “We wanted an eclectic rendition of a classic English style.” Easterling was eager to accessorize with his collection of English antiques, including a gilded sunburst clock, framed pastoral paintings and blue-and-white porcelains. The room is defined by its mix of old and new, from the reproduction French Moderne coffee table and faux-palm floor lamp to a colorful antique Turkish kilim and an Indo-British armchair draped with a sumptuous sheepskin. Sister Parish window treatments and indigo Christopher Spitzmiller gourd lamps frame a green velvet sofa, which inspired the abstract commission by Nashville artist Kayce Hughes. The bold fabric reappears on pillows in the dining nook, where a fringed Oscar de la Renta settee (topped with an indigo Bunny Williams Home throw) sidles up to custom Hickory Chair table with metal-wrapped legs.

British interior designer Amanda Baring set out to create uplifting and uncomplicated interiors. This London townhouse is exactly that. A dose of whimsy and modernism amongst a traditional backdrop. I am having heart palpitations over the photo above. Gorgeous!!!
