I love colour and pattern, the more the merrier. I equally love light, bright and white. I like a touch of maximalism, a little restraint, eclectic and traditional. I love collections and books, personal treasures, things found, vintage, antique and tribal. I love soft light and simple living. I love the portfolio of Notting Hill interior decorator Kate Guinness.
I think I should start calling Sundays “Victorian Sundays” 🙂 This is a 2 bedroom, 1500 sq ft ground floor apartment in a Victorian in London with a mix of dark and light rooms, a gorgeous bathroom and a lush 79ft back garden. Stunning details like herringbone wood floors, a stained glass front door, ornate moldings and french doors out to the garden. LOVE. Via Shoot Factory.
“Where do you live?”
” In a penthouse in Berlin.”
Now that would be an answer I’d love to give. I can just imagine being perched above one of my favourite cities and the space I have in mind would be very much like this loft by Bfs Design. Clean, straight lines, a little concrete soften by walls of warm wood, industrial with a mid century riff and houseplants perched to take over if given half a chance.
Copenhagen based studio File Under Pop specializes in surface design. Directed by Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer, they transform rooms by clothing walls, floors and ceilings with handmade tiles from clay and lava stone, hand painted wallpaper and exclusive paint. All of their products are processed entirely by hand, combining antique craftsmanship with modern technology, resulting in characteristic and unique surfaces and finishes. Texture and colors are the keywords of File Under Pop. And the results are so beautiful I had to share.
The design of this São Paulo home by Pascali Semerdjian is about simplicity, comfort and a desire to stimulate social interactions. It maximizes light, comfort, ventilation and the outdoors. One creative feature to note is how the brick facade appears to decompose near the roofline. I am also a fan of the beautiful reclaimed wood floor and the lush backyard garden.
