I have always had a love for dark and dramatic interiors and find that the bright/warm/neutral trend seems to overwhelmingly be the norm these days. So hats off to Brianne Bishop Design for this modern, moody, grey, dramatic design for a new build in Bucktown, Chicago. Edgy and fabulous.
So what is modern luxury? The luxury of natural materials, of space, of abundant light flowing into your home, of beautiful things and art definitely art. Modern luxury is having the ability to live how you want, where you want. Modern luxury is this Bellevue Hill Residence by Sarah Davison Interiors.
“Pinky’s is a reimagined boathouse by Akin Atelier & 360 degrees Landscape Architecture. Located on Gibson’s Beach, Vaucluse, Pinky’s Boathouse was designed as an interior living solution for a family who spend much of their time on the harbour. Using the existing foundations, the interior design intention for the boathouse was to create a space that could adapt to the changing conditions of the harbour.”
It’s a dream surely, a fantasy of mine. A wonderful Sydney harbourside home and to top it off a boathouse or should that be just a little bit more than a boathouse. To me Pinky’s is perfection. Might just move a bed in as well.
Now this is quite the slice of outdoor heaven in Sagaponack, NY. This pool, pond, lounge setup surrounded by wildflowers and grasses and trees is in my humble opinion, the perfect example of how to create a useable outdoor space that is modern yet blends in with the landscape and doesn’t look forced. Incredible and going right into my inspiration folder. By Rees Roberts + Partners.
If light and bright and warm and modern is up your alley then this feature is definitively for you! A savvy professional young woman bought her architecturally noteworthy home in Austin, Texas and reached out to Veneer Designs in Los Angeles to make her design intent come to life. Working remotely to oversee a light kitchen renovation and coordinating furniture, ligtiing, and decor orders, this project proves anything is possible in the digital era. With an owner who is willing to roll up their sleeves and get intricately involved, the warm earthy minimalist style she was looking to achieve fell into place effortlessly. Photos: Charlotte Lea
