A restored 1930s French château in Texas

Posted on Sun, 20 Nov 2022 by KiM

A 1930s neglected French château was restored with the help of Newberry Campa Architects and decorator Kara Childress. This stunning limestone 30,000 sq ft home is about as luxurious as it gets but still maintains some elements of history and has some comfortable spaces that aren’t overly fussy. Modernized château living at its finest. (Photos from Kara’s website and there are more in this AD feature)

A renovated Chelsea townhouse

Posted on Fri, 18 Nov 2022 by KiM

Steps from the Highline, this townhouse is situated across the street from a city park and playground. As a result, the south-facing street façade is bathed in daylight. This complete transformation of the interior architecture responded to these site conditions by placing the kitchen at the front of the building, maximizing park views and sunlight. An enlarged rear façade opening, and renovated terrace space extend indoor living outdoors and to the garden. The creation of a double height parlor living area allows relief to the stair circulation through the introduction of a mezzanine. The renovation included new building systems, reconfigured room layouts to allow a floor-through primary suite, and new bathrooms for family living.
I am having a hard time getting beyond this fabulous Sebastian Cox for deVOL kitchen that greets you like a warm hug as soon as you walk into this beautiful home. And that double height parlor….. *sigh* By Oliver Freundlich Design. Photos: Chris Mottalini.

Embracing the architecture of this home and playing up the old world vibes, Nickey Kehoe once again adds colour and pattern and lots of cozy vintage vibes in this sun-filled home. Such wonderful light in each space.

Hotel La Bionda

Posted on Wed, 16 Nov 2022 by KiM

Exclusive eight-room hotel in an 18th century building in Begur, a complete project in which the studio has been in charge of the concept, branding and image as well as the whole restoration and decoration. The traditional Catalan house required a thorough structural reform to be later updated with traditional techniques and materials Quintana Partners also incorporated the latest technology to reuse energy and water resources to achieve energy sufficiency The starting point of the decoration are inspiring women from the early twentieth century, whose personality has been reflected in each room, such as Charlotte Cooper, English tennis player, the first woman to win the Olympic Games, Emilie Flöge, muse of the painter Gustav Klint, textile designer, or the dancer Carmen Amaya, a devotee of Begur.
Absolutely beautiful. What a dream to be able to spend a few nights here.
