A colourful family home in London

Posted on Mon, 20 Mar 2023 by KiM

Inspired by the joyful and eclectic atmosphere of the home in the ‘Paddington’ films we created a vibrant, pattern filled home for design lovers, with an emphasis on practical solutions for family life and interesting design details throughout.
This could not be more perfect for a family with young kids. The colours are so fresh and incredibly fun and have such a wonderful energy. Immediately brings a smile to my face. Also how can you not love a yellow kitchen? Designed by James Arkoulis and Saskia Howard of Howark Design (***update: and as per the comments, also designed by Robert Atherton Design)

A medieval castle for sale in Toulouse

Posted on Sun, 19 Mar 2023 by KiM

Set in the hills with expansive countryside views, this medieval chateau in southern France is a dream! Lovingly restored and decorated, it has 12 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and living areas set over three floors. Complete with its round tower and private pool, it is truly magical! This magnificent property also includes three separate self-contained gites lovingly renovated to a high standard. Each has an individual terrace and access to a separate shared pool. Despite the peaceful and tranquil setting, the property is just a few minutes from all necessary amenities and a large swimming lake. The city of Toulouse and its airport are less than one hour away.
What a beautiful home and a fun project to change out some of those colours to something a little more….. or a little less….. For sale via Savills.

A calming respite for a young family in Manhattan’s West Village — paying homage to their historic 1860s brownstone through warm textures, timelessly classic materials, and details that find refinement through the patina of living. Within the 1,600 square foot, three-story brownstone we were guided by European finishings and classic Belgian interiors, finding richness through a balance of natural materiality and embracing a harmonic moodiness. Seeking to add intentional texture and invite a calming cohesion, we integrated layers of natural materials, including raw & antique woods, earthy-hued heavy Belgian linens, antique brass detailing, and wall texture from Roman Clay.
Designed by And Studio Interiors, this home is breathtakingly beautiful. The drama of the black foyer, to the earthy textures in the living room, to the elegantly classic kitchen, this somewhat minimal home is really a masterpiece. Aside from needing to change out those dining chairs (so uncomfortable), every single other thing here is perfection.

A new build waterside escape in Louisiana

Posted on Thu, 16 Mar 2023 by KiM

This new build was designed as a waterside escape for its owners and a place for them to gather with their family and friends. Working with Watters Architecture to create an intimately-scaled home that could flex from being used by two as a cozy retreat to housing large groups, we turned to a classic center hall design with a primary suite wing and multiple bunk rooms on the upper level. A dreamy oak clad office space, acting as a bridge between the main house and primary wing, doubles as a private sitting room for the owners when the house is full of guests. This Louisiana camp required a dose of vernacular design, but an upbringing familiar with East Coast summer homes inspired shiplap walls, nautical touches, and a dose of nostalgia. Our clients’ sophisticated and well traveled taste brought in a layer of Mediterranean elements and African decor, creating a relaxing, cool, and down right fun place to play on the water or kick up your feet.
Cottage living at its finest! And the kitchen is as cute as can be. Another wonderful project by the talented Logan Killen Interiors. (Architect: Watters Architecture; Contractor: JB Design Build; Photographer: Jacqueline Marque)
