A modernized 1960’s condo in Italy

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2020 by KiM

Architect Anna Stella Tinelli and interior designer Claudio De Leo of Pleroo Design Studio created a beautiful space here for Claudio and his family, modernizing this 120 sq m apartment in Gioia del Colle, a town in southern Italy (the building was built in the late 1960’s). Many materials were used such as oak flooring, cane chairs, metal and mesh room dividers, travertine, grasscloth wallpaper, which adds alot of interest to what is quite simple architecture.

House of jewels by Studio Sven

Posted on Tue, 19 May 2020 by KiM

I wanted to share another very intriguing project by Studio Sven. In this case it’s quite a traditional style home that is given quite unexpected lashings of jewel-toned colours. At first I was a bit taken aback but the more I devoured these photos the more I like what I see (I’m still uncertain about that blue ceiling – not a fan of blue). It’s an inexpensive and very impactful way of modernizing a home.

Lauren Svenstrup of Chicago design firm Studio Sven transformed a bland yellow/orange/brown home (see before photos here – really worth a gander) into something much more dynamic, sexy and inviting. And the drama begins the second you walk in the door. BAM!

The Notting Hill home of designer Matilda Goad

A bit of vintage country is what you’ll find in the Notting Hill home of creative consultant and designer Matilda Goad. Quite feminine and very pretty with a backdrop of pale pink on the walls. Easy on the eyes and extremely relaxed and liveable. Photos by Owen Gale via House & Garden.

An 1800’s farmhouse on Long Island

Posted on Fri, 15 May 2020 by KiM

Leaning towards traditional, this Long Island farmhouse is the perfect weekend refuge. Warm and earth tones set the stage and give off such a calm, peaceful aura. For the first phase of the renovation of an early 1800’s farmhouse on Long Island, we were brought in to bring back the architectural integrity and soul of our client’s home. While the house still had some important elements intact, much of the renovation was focused on adjusting the flow of the rooms and adding architectural bones where they had been removed. A weekend and summer house for a young family, our client desired a colorful palette that felt appropriate during all four seasons of the year. To that end, we filled the rooms with luxurious upholstered furniture that beckons you to sit down and stay while, meanwhile a curated collection of not-so-precious antiques and vintage pieces remind you to kick up your feet and enjoy your cocktail.
