House with labradors

Posted on Tue, 4 Jun 2019 by KiM

Ukrainian husband and wife design team Sergiy and Anna of PH Studio are at it again (see previous feature here) with some traditional loveliness in this beautiful home in Kyiv. Their client has a penchant for French classics, as well as English and American interiors. Combining those and making the home dog (and cat!) friendly resulted in spaces that are comfortable and very easy on the eye.

A dramatic cottage

“The brief for this project was to refresh and energise the interiors of a traditional Sydney terrace house in a style that would provide a dramatic backdrop for the client’s outstanding collection of antique and modern furniture, traditional and contemporary artworks and eclectic objets d’art.”

An aesthetic beauty

“The home combines playfulness with sophistication, and artistry with purpose.”

A beautiful white canvas, a calm and pleasing stage on which to carry out the drama of everyday life. Part sanctuary, part carefully curated business base for its work from home owner, this Paddinton Terrace with personality and purpose is by Sydney-based interior architect Phoebe Nicol.

Hotel Joaquin

Posted on Sun, 2 Jun 2019 by KiM

Where would I rather be on this cool and rainy Sunday? How about lounging poolside or soaking in a tub at the beautiful Hotel Joaquin in Laguna Beach (formerly a dilapidated Motor Inn). Hotel Joaquin was designed by Studio Robert McKinley to embody chic, playful, and layered décor. Inspiration for the décor was taken from the island of St.Barths, the 1950s Southern California beach culture, and the timeless and pristine aesthetic of the Mediterranean coast. Each room was individually designed with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, customized furniture, and curated artwork. Luxurious bathrooms feature monolithic imported stone offset by glinting solid brass fixtures. Hand-cut and crafted tile pays homage the timeless work of coastal craftsmen.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 1 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

OK, OK you all know my weekend mantra. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. And the ultimate in super cool workplaces? Why a designer’s own work digs. Loving Chicago-based PROjECT‘s office space. Thanks Kim for the introduction to their work.
