Nuevo Mundo by Studio Paradisiartificiali

Posted on Tue, 11 Feb 2020 by KiM

Love the family-friendly, bright, and whimsical vibe of this home designed by Milan-based design firm Studio ParadisiartificialiThe design of this home centres around a small coloured volume: the mixing and matching of a few, simple geometries, amidst the luxuriant vegetation of an imaginary garden. The effect is that of a votive temple, an architecture born to celebrate domestic rituals. When a house represents living in its most intimate form, it turns into a home, a physical and mental extension of its inhabitants. What we wished to convey was the sense that beyond the threshold lay a marvel of nature that reigns supreme insofar as capable of arousing infinite wonder in the onlooker. To this end, together with the Mexican artist Guillermo Flores ORBEH, we left our clients to wander through the leafy branches until they reached a small coloured volume and chose it as their home.

Hospitality spaces by Nicemakers

Posted on Sun, 9 Feb 2020 by KiM

Amsterdam interior design firm Nicemakers blew me away last week with their residential spaces but it doesn’t stop there. Their hotels, cafés, salad bars, restaurants and private dining spaces are equally as gorgeous and have some really inspirational design elements as well. Here is a taste.

A designer’s home in Austin, Texas

The Austin, Texas home of designer Consuelo Pierrepont Spitler of Sway Studio is so beautifully curated and filled with a motley of antique pieces that are unique and quite obviously treasured. It’s a mish-mash I can 100% get behind.

Nicemakers

Amsterdam interior designers Joyce Urbanus and Dax Roll, partners in life and design, are known as ‘Nicemakers’. And nice does not begin to describe their spaces. Functional and liveable, but high on style and thoughtfully curated. I featured a kitchen below a few years ago but the photos were too small to do it justice so another peak was in order. It’s a stunner.

Attention to detail

Back in November Jo featured this kitchen by New York based design firm Studio Dearborn, and titled the post “Everything and the kitchen sink”. That title was spot-on because Sarah Robertson’s attention to detail, especially when it comes to kitchens, is EVERYTHING. There is a spot for every item you could possibly need, and more. So I thought I’d share a glimpse into another kitchen she designed, along with some other spaces that caught my eye.
