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. Kiln at Ace Hotel Sydney by Fiona Lynch.

An apartment in Moscow where plants thrive

Posted on Fri, 27 Jan 2023 by KiM

Designer Elena Gorenshtein has a very obvious love of plants/the outdoors and decided to bring the outdoors into her apartment in Moscow by combining 2 apartments into one and created skylights? lightboxes? in the dark centre of the space to allow for a “winter garden”. I would lay in that bathtub, turn on one of those bird videos I play for my cats, and pretend I was bathing in a forest.

This is simply a blog about interiors.

Quintessentially English

“We wanted the interiors to be cosy and eclectic and to be sympathetic to the age of the cottage. We mixed old with new and sourced a lot of the antiques in auctions from around the UK. The cottage is a little jewel box, with each room a different colour scheme full of patterns and layers. The cottage is quirky with uneven old cob walls and sloping ancient flagstone floors and we wanted the interiors to be in harmony with this.”

Quintessentially English with its pattern mix and match, embrace of colour and antique pieces and although this home is a 17th Century cottage in Devon the designer Elizabeth Hay is actually Singapore based.

Earthy eclectic

“Hidden in the canyon of Irvine, California, this 10,000 square foot home is full of Spanish influences. With architectural foundations like beautiful archways and organic characteristics, our team brought a vision to life that is uniquely exquisite. As a result, you’ll see high ceilings, geometric shapes, plaster throughout, and luxury goods for an eloquent look. With an intentional design approach that is functional and aristocratic, our design encompasses natural light and a trendy color palette.”

A neutral nirvana with an emphasis on natural materials and texture with its restrained colour palette. Earthy Eclectic by Orange County based Lindye Galloway.
