A stark palette of black and white provides the theatre at the heart of the design of this Potrero Hill residence by Eche Martinez of San Francisco based interior design firm ECHE. The tension between the two is tempered by warm wood tones while the play on opposites is continued with slick modern pieces and timeless antiques. It’s a graphic approach, one destined to create drama in any space and one that can only inspire.

I wanted to share another project by Thread Art and Design because I am smitten with Lindsay’s work. This one has a mid-century vibe and includes a deeper accent colour palette, some black for drama and not as much wallpaper. LOVE this home too.

I love lots of textures and patterns in a home, when done really well. This home designed by Boston-based designer Lindsay Bentis of Thread Art and Design is a lesson in how to add lots of patterns via wallpaper, tile, rugs and pillows and not overdo it. The vibrancy and energy here is really a feast for the eyes. There is just so much to look at!

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.

At first I thought I was just having another kitchen crush moment going on but it’s so much more. Don’t get me wrong. I love the this white kitchen with its sleek contemporary lines and hidden surprises. There’s even a nod to traditional kitchens and don’t get me started on the floors. The Serge Mouille light and the Hans Wegner Wishbone chairs finish it off to perfection but the true hero of this space? The beautiful light flooding in through the wall of steel framed windows. What a luxury. It’s not just the kitchen though that has me squealing with delight. I know you’ll love the rest of this Prospect Heights Townhouse by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture & Design as much as I do.
