South Hill revival

Posted on Tue, 7 May 2024 by KiM

An enchanting mid-century modern home, where nostalgia meets innovation in a symphony of design. Throughout this home, the interplay of vintage and modern is not just a juxtaposition, but a conversation. Inspired by a passion for vintage furniture and art, every corner of this space echoes with stories of the past, intertwining seamlessly with the present. The color palette, a canvas of timeless neutrals, sets the stage for understated elegance. Hints of patina-flecked brass and the warmth of oak wood have been thoughtfully infused to embrace the comforting allure of a well-loved abode. The fusion of mid-century modern aesthetics, art deco grandeur, and the free-spirited bohemian vibe culminates in an eclectic marvel that is uniquely individual. The result is a space that is vibrant, cozy, and endlessly intriguing.
Yes yes YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I really love this home and how every element is like a work of art. Montana Labelle is like the Canadian Kelly Wearstler and I cannot get enough.

Hillside gardens

There is no description for this absolutely breathtaking landscaping project by Dan Pearson Studio. All that really needs to be said is this is so perfect I could cry.

It is very difficult to find castles that I can share on Sundays that are decorated in a way I would consider “blog-worthy”. This 8 bedroom, 6063 ft² castle is blog-worthy but not in the positive sense. The bones are fabulous but the decor is so horrible that I don’t think there is a single paint colour, piece of furniture, light fixture etc I can get behind. And it begins as soon as you drive up with that hideous blue. I started reading the description and could not stop laughing…..
Ideally nestled between Riscle and Marciac, in a small hamlet of several delightful residences, discover this sumptuous Art Deco château, accompanied by its guest house and vast outbuildings. Entirely renovated by a famous Madiran wine producer, it is the epitome of excellence: every wall is a hand-painted work of art, the floor tiles are cut on site, and the bathroom tiles are made-to-measure creations… Yet this renovation in no way detracts from the modern character and state-of-the-art equipment of the house… Listing here.

The Treehouse

The Treehouse is filled with character and feels so welcoming. It is a bit coastal, and bit Scandi, a bit cottagecore, a bit granny chic, with a big dose of vintage (especially the bedrooms – love them!). I adore this home designed by Portland, Maine-based Heidi Lachapelle Interiors.

Chimney Rock

Situated at the foot of a towering 14,000-foot mountain peak and overlooking ancient red rock formations, this modern yet warm home crests a forested ridge. Studio Plow’s maiden, ground-up design embraces the surrounding coniferous forest of Colorado’s Front Range while offering a cozy and inviting refuge for the parents of Plow’s Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Brit Epperson. Created to emulate the intimacy of camping while maximizing the area’s grandiose mountain views, the home’s design is inspired by household rituals and a connection to nature. Each detail of this special home was lovingly crafted in collaboration with kin. With many of the custom furniture pieces sourced from Epperson’s brother, furniture designer, and builder Barrett Karber, the integration of various family skills and heirlooms into the design creates a truly bespoke, forever home for the architect and interior designer’s parents.
Most designer’s would have gone cabin-chic with this home given the rugged terrain and surroundings but the interior is sophisticated, contemporary and really warm. A bit minimal was a great approach so as to not distract from the incredible views. General Contractor: High Country Homes; Custom Furniture: Grain Construction; Photography: Nicole Franzen
