High intensity colour and pattern

Posted on Tue, 30 Mar 2021 by KiM

High intensity colours and patterns can be found throughout this San Juan, Puerto Rico condo designed by Stewart Rodriguez. From the moment you step out of the elevator you know you are in for a treat. The fashion editorial photograph of the glass encased model sets the tone of what’s behind the main door. Bold colors and art are the inspiration for this interior designer’s home. Fearless to kelly green walls that wrap the living room and dining room allow for the eclectic furniture pieces to come alive. The combination of a pink chair with the yellow sofa show how strong colors palettes can work perfectly in a space. The dining room is a stunning blend of modern with old romanticism. The “Study for ‘La Grande Jatte’, by Georges Seurat, 1884-5” in the National Gallery and the amazing fashion editorial piece of Alice in Wonderland by a Barcelona fashion photographer create a dining room to remember. The master bedroom chinoiserie wallpaper with the bold patterns on the upholstered bed make a bold move look peaceful and chic. This home is a great testament of living surrounded by the things you love…

Sunday at a bar

Posted on Sun, 28 Mar 2021 by KiM

It’s Sunday and all I want is warm weather and a pandemic-free world. Is that so much to ask for?! I remember a time when hanging out at a bar or restaurant was no big deal, and this bar, Buha|i|rest in Budapest, would be a fabulous spot to gather with friends and enjoy some drinks. Designed by Roman Plyus, this beautiful space with it’s terracotta tones and curved furnishings and repetitive circles is eye candy. Hopefully the drinks are as yummy as the decor.

Aside from my initial horror that this Upper West Side townhouse probably had exquisite woodwork in a former life before it was all painted out white, this home is classically beautiful and thoughtfully curated. Designed for an exacting art-collecting couple, this historic Upper West Side townhouse is all about form and light. The primary directive from the clients was to create a gallery-like space that would showcase their ever-expanding and diverse collection of art and design; Gachot sought to deliver while making a space that was human, textured, and liveable.

Classic, neutral, casual and a bit traditional, with the sweetest exterior. This is the lovely new-build Roswell, Atlanta cottage of designer Anna Braund.

European and neutral vibes

Posted on Wed, 24 Mar 2021 by KiM

This project by Zoë Feldman Design is world’s apart from the last project I shared. And while the vibe here is a completely 180 it is also tugging at my heartstrings. Inspired by our client’s Portuguese background, we drew upon the history and unique design elements of this picturesque European country to transform the pictured Palisades townhome from dated to “old-world.” The plaster walls and soft curves that define the home’s esthetic are carried throughout the core spaces. Floating marble shelves combined with upper and lower cabinetry in the kitchen fuses function with decoration for the ultimate kitchen design. We enjoyed mixing metal finishes throughout the kitchen & bathrooms to produce a design that is well-curated through tension and balance. Built-ins and hidden closet doors are strategically placed in almost every room to capitalize on any opportunity to maximize storage.
