“Using organic, raw materials and artistic, natural plays on design, juxtaposed with clean and simple palettes, April is redefining Southern design with her fresh yet deeply grounded style.”

Being grown-up doesn’t just mean sophisticated and urbane interiors. The home of your dreams can include a ye-ha cowboy fringe leather ottoman at the end of your bed and a swing in the family room.  “Twig & Biscuit” by Nashville-based April Tomlin Interiors.

A beautiful marriage of bespoke and carefully curated pieces in a white on white colour palette. What else could you possibly want in this luxe family home in Toronto, Canada?

Bali beauty

“The project is conceived holistically as an ecologically sustainable product, coexisting coherently with its omnipresent natural environment. Using locally sourced materials, such as buried Javanese teak, bamboo, and stones from Sumba, was deemed a priority … Every detail is considered so carefully that even the organic vegetables grown in the garden are part of the overall conception.”

Elegant yet casual the house is a series of 5 pavilions filled with the owner’s collection of textiles.  For me, it’s the sinuous infinity pool and that view. I cannot wait until travel restrictions are lifted and we can travel again as the estate is available to rent. Hartland by Bali-based Studio Jencquel.

Burnt toffee

Sophisticated and moody. Masculine and beautifully curated. Mature yet at times quirky. It’s like burnt toffee, complex yet bittersweet. Highland by Memphis, Tennessee based Sean Anderson Design. (Kim has followed Sean’s career for many years. You can see her posts here.)

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Lifehood by Romanel Design Studio.
