Highgate House (or Kim’s Dream House)

Posted on Mon, 3 Apr 2023 by KiM

This Grade II north London family home is a ‘masterclass in distinctive detail’ (House & Garden, David Nicholls). From the extraordinary gothic exterior to the unexpected interplay of light, colour, and rich materiality in the interior, this project demonstrates the unique approach and vision of the studio. A full restoration, decoration and furnishing project stands testament to the relationship between designers, client and restorer. With a focus on creating an environment that reflected the interests and tastes of the client, with inspirations from their studies, travels and collections, this project at its core is a home with memories at its heart which has resulted in a profoundly poetic space.

Gimme all the gothic architecture! This house really is my dream home and I can barely contain myself with the exterior much less how gorgeous those gothic windows are from the interior. DYING. Highgate house designed by Maddux Creative. Photos: Paul Massey

Earthy modern in the Rocky Mountains

Posted on Mon, 3 Apr 2023 by KiM

Surrounded by the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, this wonderful weekend home is a study of earthy neutrals and a modern, somewhat minimalist aesthetic. It’s a really warm and cozy space that is everything you need in both the summer and winter months with many windows affording lovely views of trees and mountains.

A palace for sale in Amelia, Italy

Posted on Sun, 2 Apr 2023 by KiM

In the historic center of Amelia we offer a perfectly preserved period residence. On the lower floor, mosaics from the Roman era have in fact been discovered and restored, bearing witness to the fact that the Palazzo stands on the foundations of an ancient Domus. Going up one level, you enter the cellars with ceilings covered with barrel vaults, dating back to the Middle Ages. The next two levels are from the Renaissance period and the hall on the main floor with its beautiful frescoes and floors deserves particular mention. The top floor, surmounted by a tower, is from a more modern era.

Why settle for a castle when you can have a palace!!! 16 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms and 23,681 sq ft of jaw-dropping architecture. Can you imagine being able to say your home has Roman era tile?!!! I’m dead. Listed @ €2,500,000 via James Edition.

Working on a Saturday

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. A wine bar helps too. Gurner Head Office by Powell & Glenn.
