It may be a small space but it’s a hard worker. Wet bar with a hidden beverage fridge, floral arranging room and additional storage for pantry and cleaning supplies. Don’t we all wish we had a dedicated space for those messy jobs, extra storage and handy drinks when we’re working or playing outside? And to think it was just a simple pass through room until Lauren Lothrop Caron of Seattle-based Studio Laloc worked her magic.
“Nestled between forest, dune and sea our cottage style Starwood Residence is the manifestation of our design-minded client’s vision for a home that sustains a lifestyle rooted in family and flow … the house was stripped to its bones and lovingly brought back to life, with reclaimed French terracotta hexagon tile the stage upon which clay finished walls, rouge marble and custom joinery interplay with a quietly eclectic harmony of furniture, art and accessories.”
A mind set of reuse, recycle and repurpose has created a home that is about comfort and sustainability. A wonderfully laid back house in Bloemendaal, The Netherlands by Avenue Design Studio.
It won’t surprise you after scrolling through these photos that London-based designer Susan Deliss designs her own range of fabrics and sells ikats, silk embroideries, kilims, velvets and linens, antique, vintage and new. One-off furniture, both antique and made to order and upholstered in Susan Deliss’s fabrics are complemented by limited edition cushions and hand-made and lined silk lampshades, decorative objects and fine art. Her portfolio has me desperately wanting to add so many pretty patterns in my home, which I tend to shy away from. Clearly I am missing out.
When each room has its own presence and special touches, and really draws you in. This stunning home located in Long Island, NY was designed by Lisa Hershman of Abaca Interiors. It consisted of a complete renovation and extension for a young family moving to the suburbs. The goal was to combine classic architecture with a modern sensibility in furnishings. The result is a really current look that imbues a strong sense of elegance. (Architect: Nathan Laubach, Contractor: Draghi Contracting, Photography and Styling: Stylish Productions)
