Matthew Monroe Bees‘ interiors are OTT Southern maximalism with a touch of traditionalism and elegance that isn’t at all pretentious.
I had to share another inspiring project by the talented ladies of Journey + Jacobs. The second floor remodel of this historic downtown Louisville building was inspired by an old world, Parisian apartment. We designed it to have low-key elegance and glamour while feeling comfortable, useful, textured and touchable. We created contrast between the bright and clean whitewalls in the main living space to bolder tones in the smaller spaces like the office, painted in a bold green. The primary bedroom was created to be calming, warm and layered with grey linen lush bedding, heavy chocolate velvet curtains and tall built-in wardrobes. The adjoining wet room was plastered in a blush tone with a modern tub, black framed shower glass and bold colorful marble tile on the floor. The kitchen was made for entertaining with a 5x8ft marble island and an accordion door on the far wall allowing for seamless indoor/outdoor living. We turned the tiny second bedroom into a meditation space with a custom upholstered mustard velvet bench for resting and built-in shelves to house health books, nicknacks from travel and extra storage.

Blessed with the beautiful bones of a 1940s apartment Parisian-based RMGB have created a magical home in the very northern commune of Lambersart. A neutral colour palette allows original features like a two-storey stained glass window and its accompanying staircase to shine. The mix of contemporary furniture and pieces from the 60s and 70s is chic in the way that only the French can be truly chic.

“A contemporary chic & eclectic kitchen for a young family, nestled amongst the trees in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. This project unifies contrasting design elements to create a rejuvenating and quirky kitchen that maximises on space and function.”
The view is amazing and so is the kitchen. An awkward narrow space is visually expanded by steel and glass doors and windows while cabinet colours echo the trees outside. Belle Vue kitchen renovation by Sydney-based Amarot.
A whole bunch of pretty, and lots of pale colours and patterns. It’s a bit traditional but it’s so cozy and easy-going. This is the restored cottage of Dallas designer Cathy Kincaid.
