A layered home in the Cornwall countryside

Posted on Fri, 10 Feb 2023 by KiM

A country home in Cornwall screams for quintessentially English décor with layers upon layers of colours, patterns, textures and architectural details in abundance. That is just what Mary Graham and Nicole Salvesen of Salvesen Graham did here and it created such an inviting and warm home that could stand the test of time for decades to come.

I have never in my life seen a mobile home this freaking cool and full of personality. Leave it to Frances Merrill of Reath Design to know just what to do with a space like this for a California surfer who clearly loves colour and a fun, vibrant energy. Green painted floors, lavender kitchen cabinets, a retro floral wallpaper and lots of retro knotty pine are everything you could want in an eclectic, stylish surf shack. (Photos: Laure Joliet)

Purity of space

Posted on Thu, 9 Feb 2023 by midcenturyjo

“A Haussmanian apartment which allows for the purity of space. It’s all about combining traditional Parisian style with purist contemporary design.”

Just a tease of the apartment in Paris’ 3rd arrondissement with views of the living room and a glimpse of the dining. Leaves me wanting so much more. Turbigo by Festen.

East Hampton’s mid-century modern

Posted on Thu, 9 Feb 2023 by midcenturyjo

Mid-century sensitivities, outside in living and a killer collection of art and furniture. Amidst a sea of beige this East Hampton mid-century modern home by New York-based David Scott Interiors is visually refreshing and extremely functional.

The other day I shared the Provence home of designer Enrica Stabile of Solamente Giovedi….and now I would like to share her equally fabulous apartment in Milan. A bit Gustavian, a bit Scandinavian, a bit Southern France and European chic in a space that includes lovely windows and moldings, old doors, and a bathroom with huge columns that completely elevates (literally) the space.
