Two things about this Notting Hill artist studio that I must point out. 1 – Black walls win over white any day. 2 – If you are going to go minimal, do it like this. Earthy, edgy and textured. Saskia Blyth of Blyth-Collinson Interiors is responsible for nailing this space.
Modern architecture and interiors is not my first love but I appreciate the openness and light and simplicity. Like in this recently built Houston home designed by Laura U Interior Design. I love that fireplace statement wall in the living room and sculptural furnishings.
I think I’ll add stately manors to my castle ensemble for Sundays as they tend to be just as fabulous and a bit easier to find. I spotted Wardington Manor featured on Sköna hem and then found another feature of this glorious home on House & Garden. Located in Oxfordshire on 30 acres of picturesque property, this 15th century manor is an absolute dream. The woodwork, the plasterwork, and that stone flooring in the kitchen….*sigh* (photos: Michael Paul / Living Inside & Andrew Montgomery)
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. A 70’s dream this is!

Viviano Viviano is a mother-son (Catherine and Michael) interior design and architecture firm based in Houston, Texas, and I love what they do. We create modern spaces imbued with warmth and comfort. Our projects vary in tone and personality – indeed, each is a reflection of the respective client’s lifestyle and interests – but we aim for a quiet elegance across all our work. We curate a studious mix of vintage, antique and contemporary pieces meant to evoke a sense of timelessness and ease.
