Collaborating closely with the sellers, a luxury real estate development team, we worked swiftly to pivot the initial neutral-hued, crowd-pleasing design direction into something tailored, uncommon and artful – saturating the detailed interior architecture throughout with the most delightfully satisfying color palette, show-stopping surfaces, gorgeous light fixtures, plenty of pattern, and a rich collection of modern and vintage furnishings.
Now THIS is how you make a statement. Channel some Hollywood Regency, some Kelly Wearstler and you have an eye-popping home that will be the envy of the neighbourhood. By Black Lacquer Design. Photos: Jessica Alexander.
“A complete interior and exterior remodel of a Paul Sterling Hoag home in Los Angeles, California. Restrained yet warm, we began calling this gem the ‘Zen Treehouse’ because of its treeline views and great vibes. The interior floor plan and finishes were reimagined to reflect a modern-day aesthetic while continuing to pay respect to Hoag’s iconic architecture.”

“Intoxicating and serene, the ’70s Rêve is a glam rock riff on the sultry vibes and breezy bliss of bohemian life. Restored and reconceived, this lush estate in Ross, California, exudes a balmy calm with a sexy swagger. Earthy and sumptuous, playfully plush, it teems with the effervescent cool of a YSL muse—both ageless and of the moment.”
If that’s the way Alexis Tompkins and Leann Conquer, the design duo behind San Francisco-based Chroma describe this house then anything I can add is just useless verbiage. Crazy perfect!

I have dreams of living in a house with so much space I don’t even know what to do with it all. What would I do with 29 rooms spread over 10,000 square feet? I think a home that large could be overwhelming but in the case of Jean Stoffer she took up this challenge like a champ and turned this historic Grand Rapids home into something spectacular. There are so many fabulous rooms Jean created in her home I could only narrow it down to 28 photos. There’s even a kitchenette between the master bedroom and bathroom 🙂 (Photos: Stoffer Interiors Photography)
I love the homey vibes of this family apartment in Poland designed by Colombe. I will forever be smitten black and white floors, and the kitchen is a beauty and has me considering green if I ever get around to renovating my kitchen.
