It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. King Street Offices by Kennedy Nolan.

Why stop at just one when there is tons of eye candy to fill a second post. Courtnay Tartt Elias making yet more magic in these slightly less colourful spaces. (Photos: Julie Soefer)

Colour with Creative Tonic

Posted on Fri, 30 Oct 2020 by KiM

Courtnay Tartt Elias of Creative Tonic (based in Houston) is all about colour and pattern and drama. Everyday moments are celebrated, more is splendidly more + unexpected details are waiting to be discovered around every corner. Color is essential to my process. Our world is a vibrant place and, for as long as I can remember, I’ve felt compelled to weave brilliance into my surroundings. I founded Creative Tonic in 2006 with a passion for composing layered environments that invite celebration. With a fearless use of color and decidedly inventive flair… Brilliant living begins here. (Photos: Julie Soefer)

“The central hub of the home, with its monumental kitchen island, is brought together with the dining room, lounge and outdoor courtyard. This was designed in response to the client’s brief: to bring everyone together in conversation. A clear, yet cohesive distinction has defined these spaces through the artful balance of bespoke designs and richly layered materials, furniture and lighting, all of which are threaded seamlessly throughout each room.”

Oh so elegant. Oh so chic. Oh so French. This stylish Parisian apartment on the rue de Verneuil in 7th arrondissement is for sale. Marketed as a pied-à-terre at 113m2 with two reception rooms, kitchen, small library/guest room and lovely master bedroom it’s more than large enough to live out my Paris dreams. At 2 850 000 € though I may just have to keep fantasizing. Via Kasha Paris.
