A celebration of European living with beautifully curated rooms flooded with light. Think linen and aged oak, soft colour palettes and attention to the finer details. Contemporary living embracing the old and all with the family at the heart … and hearth. By Dublin-based interior designer Minnie Peters.

“Located in the bustling neighborhood of the 6th district in Vienna, this 300sqm apartment is a place of retreat for a well-travelled design aficionado. The apartment is divided in two units with seamless connection through wooden sliding doors. High ceilings and big windows create an overall spacious feel. The bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining space is the center of the apartment where friends come together for long dinners and endless talks. A composition of custom-made interiors, wooden furniture, rough linen and carpets, selected mid-century vintage finds and unique objects complement the general monochrome and understated design concept.”
With its restrained palette and casual sophistication this carefully curated home is indeed no ordinary apartment. A signature design by Annabelle Kutucu.

Georgia-based Terracotta Design Build Co. have an absolutely stellar portfolio filled with some of the most beautiful kitchens I’ve ever seen, so I thought I would start off this feature with some of them, and follow those up with other enviable spaces. Each one has design elements that really pop, from bold uses of colour to architectural details and built-ins.
Love the family-friendly, bright, and whimsical vibe of this home designed by Milan-based design firm Studio Paradisiartificiali. The design of this home centres around a small coloured volume: the mixing and matching of a few, simple geometries, amidst the luxuriant vegetation of an imaginary garden. The effect is that of a votive temple, an architecture born to celebrate domestic rituals. When a house represents living in its most intimate form, it turns into a home, a physical and mental extension of its inhabitants. What we wished to convey was the sense that beyond the threshold lay a marvel of nature that reigns supreme insofar as capable of arousing infinite wonder in the onlooker. To this end, together with the Mexican artist Guillermo Flores ORBEH, we left our clients to wander through the leafy branches until they reached a small coloured volume and chose it as their home.

“Inspiration came in the form of an interest in cultures, colour and family. Meticulous briefing resulted with the design concept perfectly matched to the client’s affinity with Asian culture and their bright, positive personality.”
