Hannah Pemberton of WANDA transformed a 2700 sq ft Arts and Crafts home in the English seaside town of Margate that had fallen into disrepair into a contemporary, colourful space for her and her family. The unique colours used in just-the-right-dose-so-not-to-be-overwhelming ways are really refreshing and spirited. Photos: Chris Snook for Domino.

Matthew Wilson Gardens

Posted on Tue, 18 Jul 2023 by KiM

While we’re in full-on summer outdoor project mode and my gardens are lush and colourful (such a welcome change from winter’s stark blandness), I thought it fitting to share some garden inspiration. These spectacular outdoor spaces by U.K. based garden & landscape designer Matthew Wilson are incredible. I love the juxtaposition of the garden structures with the soft and flowy nature of the “unstructured” plantings.

A penchant for blue

Posted on Tue, 18 Jul 2023 by KiM

The owner of this Park Avenue apartment has a penchant for blue, and a love of art. That combination along with the bold style of designer Nick Olsen makes for a really graphic, dynamic and really eye-popping space. I love the tension created by using antique/classic furnishings paired with the modern art. (Photos: Thomas Loof)

A Martha’s Vineyard cottage

Posted on Fri, 14 Jul 2023 by KiM

If I were to have a cottage in a place like Martha’s Vineyard, I would want it to be decorated exactly like this. Especially that yellow kitchen. Such a charming and incredibly inviting home that I bet allows for the most epic granny naps and games nights. Historic preservation + deep energy retrofit + interior design by Cuppett Kilpatrick.
