The owners’ love of contemporary living and outstanding art collection informed this stunning renovation of a Parisian neoclassical apartment by Le Berre Vevaud. A pared-back colour palette and clean-lined insertions into the historic shell ensure elegant, modern rooms. The focus is on balance, detail and modern beauty.

Situated in a historic Victorian mansion block, this one-bedroom flat boasts stunning vistas of Notting Hill and Kensington. Homeowner and designer Nigel opted to maintain a separate eat-in kitchen and turned to Neptune‘s Suffolk collection to complement the building’s classic aesthetics. A pink and black colour palette is elegant while strategic cabinet choices and lighting solutions amplify the feeling of spaciousness. With a repurposed floor cabinet now a bespoke dresser and an L-shaped seating area under the sash window the kitchen has been transformed into an inviting albeit bijou entertaining haven.

Open and airy live-work

“The 1930’s Cape had undergone multiple renovations throughout the years by its previous visionary and eclectic owners. ERA chose to preserve and retain the layout and spirit of the house. Mechanicals were updated, all windows were replaced and the summer retreat was transformed into a year-round space for creativity and collaboration. A dilapidated entry volume was rebuilt and furnishings were chosen to enhance the open and airy environment. The palette of the architecture, including painted floors, wood clad columns, and fresh white baths, was combined with a mix of new and old furniture, melding different eras and materials to create a unique space that feels as though it is from no particular era.”

The renovation of this Asa Norte apartment in Brasília was all about enhancing the social spaces. The empty nesters were downsizing from a larger duplex but still wanted the spaciousness they were accustomed to. The CoDA arquitetura design team embraced this challenge by creating integrated areas that maximize utility. A bedroom was repurposed to enlarge the living room, while the kitchen was reimagined to blend with the social zone seamlessly. Private spaces remained intact, with an expanded ensuite and versatile guest rooms doubling as home offices. The result? A unified, airy space embracing park views.

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. Turull by Noé Prades.
