A vacation home for family and friends on San Juan Island north of Seattle. What a wonderful getaway and what beautiful interiors by Kylee Shintaffer. Think timeless with a warm neutral palette, add pops of watery blues and layer upon layer of natural textures. A carefully curated blend of the new, the old and the wonderfully unique. Then there’s the view.
The other day I was talking to my twin about how much I love neutral, earthy spaces but with lots of dark pieces mixed because drama is always necessary, and fabrics with lots of texture and warmth to them. I feel like L.A. designer Katie Hodges has really nailed what I had in mind with this home she designed. There is a uniqueness to each room which I can also appreciate.

Give me Haussmannian apartments any day of the week and I’ll be a happy camper. This architecture is incredibly inspiring and makes the rest of the decor shine. Like in this apartment designed by Agathe Convert in collaboration with Amélie Buvat. A mix of dark and light paint colours, and the prettiest pink I’ve ever seen on the kitchen cabinets. Lots of built-in storage solutions makes this space functional on top of being gorgeous.
Clean modern lines play against almost rustic exposed brick walls while an industrial vibe is balanced by natural materials in this contemporary family home. Indoors and out meet seamlessly while private spaces are soft and restful. Functional, cohesive and considered. Lot B Bridge House by Sydney-based interior design studio Lot 1.

From terracotta tiles to rustic beams, from smooth plaster walls to rough stone Villa Bonazza by Florence-based interior designers Matos-Herzog is a timeless beauty. Classic yet contemporary, warm and inviting yet strong and rugged. As for the colour palette think salted caramels. Rich, smooth and unctuous. By the way Bonazza is “looker” in Italian.
