A newly built French château

Posted on Wed, 30 Nov 2022 by KiM

The beauty and warmth of classic architecture and design is something that is unparalleled. Situated on a sprawling equestrian property of nearly 100 acres, this French-inspired country estate was built and designed to last generations. A legacy property such as this needed each selection to reflect times both past and present. Believing the beauty of a home is in the details, our team worked closely alongside the architect, builder, and countless trades to bring this oak-timber-framed property to life. Working from the architectural phase to the decorating phase, the project was nearly three years in the making, something we feel shows in the finished home.
What a beauty this home is! I keep imagining this with darker wood finishes so it was a bit more dramatic but I imagine the homeowners were after something bright and airy. By PlaidFox Studio. (Photos: Ema Peter; Builder: Homestar)

It has been a little while since we visited the portfolio of San Francisco designer Jeff Schlarb, and boy did I ever miss his quirky, playful spaces! This home is a bit less playful and a bit more sophisticated than some of this designs but I adore the colours, patterns (note how in the black and white bedroom the fabric on the walls lines up with the fabric on the headboard!!!) and sculptural elements he’s known for.
We approached the interiors of this 3 story English Tudor Revival home with the goal of fusing our client’s interests in vintage and collectible pieces with our contemporary art-forward aesthetic. (Photos: Noe DeWitt)

Classic meets contemporary

Nashville-based Jason Arnold deftly walks the line between classic and contemporary. His sophisticated rooms may appear simply dressed but each is carefully curated, layered and timeless. Neutrals are warmed by glowing woods, and splashes of green and burgundy in the form of foliage draw the eye around the rooms while hints of black ground them.

Small but perfectly formed

“A small but perfectly formed London townhouse filled to the brim with bold colour, texture and warmth. A playful, inspirational and happy home for a lovely, young family.”

If you ever needed cheering up on a grey old day then this is the house that will bring a smile to your face. Liveable yet dramatic spaces, bold colour and the marriage of different eras and styles. Chelsea by Studio Duggan.

Palazzo Campo Santo Stefano

Posted on Mon, 28 Nov 2022 by KiM

This seventeenth-century Venetian palazzo in Campo Santo Stefano, Venice is so beautiful I could cry. Having been stripped of its historic identity over many years, Charles Zana restored the home back to all its fresco, terrazzo and leaded glass window glory and it is magnificent. A contemporary masterpiece it became. (Photos: Matthieu Salvaing)
