I am dyinggggg over this 75 m² apartment in an 18th century building near the Palais-Royal gardens in France. Racha Gutierrez and Dahlia Hojeij Deleuze of design studio Ebur were asked to maintain original details and add a discreet dose of modernity. Stone floors, herringbone parquet were restored, doors and windows were stripped, and some antique and modern furnishings and accessories were added to make this apartment spectacular.

A converted coffee machine factory

Posted on Wed, 31 May 2023 by KiM

The idea was to give new life to an industrial space once occupied by a coffee machine factory. I wanted it to be a modern and welcoming loft, with a shaft in the heart of the house, which acts as a garden and amplifies the brightness, giving a sense of continuity between inside and outside.
This is my dream loft layout – with a central courtyard I would layer with plants. The Milanese House – Via Ventura – a fun and eclectic space designed by Milan-based Nap Atelier that is filled with vintage goodness.

“The client wanted to maintain the rich history and tradition forged by their parents and grandparents while creating a beautiful updated space in which they could forge new memories and traditions. The details and client’s history of the land, lake and home allowed us to be very creative, playful and add to the integrity of the home’s significance and lifetimes of memories to come. We challenged ourselves to hold the history of the home while enriching the space with the needs of our clients’ growing young family and future generations.”

“A love of antiques led the design direction in this newer build home. Flea market finds and vintage sourcing were prerequisites when bringing this charmer to life.”

An Arts & Crafts garden

Posted on Mon, 29 May 2023 by KiM

Inspired by the Arts & Crafts architectural style of the house, imaginative paving details and bespoke willow work characterise this large family garden in South London to create a unique space and bring a sense of the countryside to the outskirts of the city. The difficult sloping terrain of the existing garden has been transformed into a series of terraced spaces to create dining and entertaining areas close to the house, an oval lawn, a perennial meadow, games lawn and wildflower meadow and kitchen garden. A naturalistic planting scheme mixed with edibles plays a huge role in the gardens atmosphere and use.
What a beautiful garden, designed by Farlam & Chandler. I love the restraint in the colours so it looks cohesive and purposeful.
