A Wisconsin Lakeside Villa

Posted on Fri, 30 Jun 2023 by KiM

I saw these photos in the portfolio of Palm Beach and Wisconsin based interior designer Jessica Jubelirer and thought WOW what incredible homes she has worked her magic on…. and then I discovered from this AD article these are all from the same very VERY large home in Wisconsin. Not only is this home insanely huge (14,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, numerous sitting rooms and dining rooms, a mudroom with flower cutting station, bowling alley, gym, swanky garage) but each space is like it’s own little world with tons of character and personality – a little surprise as you move from one room to the next. What a dreamy home! Photos: Douglas Friedman; styling: Mieke ten Have.

A riot of colour in a Park Slope townhouse

Posted on Wed, 28 Jun 2023 by KiM

If this isn’t defined as “bold colour” then I don’t know what is. And BOLD in all caps is how I would define this. Such a whimsical, almost fairytale home where you leave one room and enter another and your level of intrigue and excitement would keep growing. I would love to meet these homeowners as I would guess their personalities match this eclectic, energetic vibe. Designed by Studio SFW.

This 10,000 square foot Beacon Hill project took three years to complete. Built in 1835, the five-bedroom Greek Revival townhouse had seen grander days. In 2001, a young Boston couple purchased the building from the Unitarian Church’s Beacon Press. Having been converted into a warren of cubicles, all five levels of the interior required gut renovations. The final outcome captured 19th-century European grandeur in a modern setting within Boston’s most historic neighborhood.
A bit more traditional than I typically gravitate towards but that lovely yellow kitchen, cheerful stairwell and so many gorgeous bathrooms left me smitten and I had to share this with you all. Designed by Heidi Pribell.

A renovated 15th century Tudor in Kent

We worked closely along side the client and architect Ptolemy Dean for two years on this historical renovation and extension project. A complete renovation of a 15th Century Manor House set in the most beautiful countryside was not without it’s challenges. There were only a few flat walls in the extension and natural materials were used throughout. The result was truly magnificent and a triumphant and happy conglomeration of many passionate people.
This is about as British as it gets and I am completely head over heels for this home. It is like a giant hug. So many layers and textures and extremely warm and inviting. Another project by the talented Sarah Vanrenen. (Read more about it here).

Contemporary vitality

This contemporary apartment designed by Madrid-based Ines Benavides is bright, full of personality and has a healthy dose of eclecticism and uniqueness. That bathroom in particular is unlike anything I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen it all). What an absolutely fabulous addition to the space.
