Colourful modern maximalism with an eclectic vintage mash-up. Hubert Zandberg – one of my biggest design crushes. Located in London’s Notting Hill, Hubert Zandberg’s 850 square foot rental apartment was a temporary solution whilst he was between homes. Whilst no architectural works were undertaken, bold paint choices and the use of curtains to divide the space up created an atmosphere in which to showcase a curated selection of art, curiosities and furniture from Hubert’s extensive collection…a mix of curiosities from around the world including Paris, London, Berlin and Cape Town along with a mix of Brazilian, mid-century and Brutalist furniture all found a place and resulted in a harmonious space with a modernist maximalist aesthetic.
What do you get when you unite some glorious marble, brass accents, retro-vibe lighting, herringbone hardwood floors and lots of molding detail? The most beautiful classic kitchen you ever did see! Designed by Joanna Lavén.
A salty tang is in the air and the rhythmic crash of waves provide the sound track. Interiors are light and bright with blonde wood furniture, a washed out colour palette of whites and sands with accents of black. The look is relaxed but sophisticated with an emphasis on natural textures. It’s summer at the beach in Australia. It’s Noosa style by CLO Studios.
Why is it that once the weather starts to warm up my mind automatically turns to gardening? Yes I’m addicted to all things interior design but I can’t help loving a house’s exterior and it’s immediate surrounds just as much. Lush and green, stimulating, relaxing and cocooning, alive and inspiring. Give me a gorgeous house but make sure it has a lovely garden. Oh and if it has a space for entertaining family and friends as well as a killer fireplace even better. Northcote garden by Melbourne-based landscape designers Peachy Green (cool name).
