An elegant Parisian apartment

Posted on Fri, 3 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Kim introduced us to the oh so chic portfolio of interior designer Fabrizio Casiraghi here but when I stumbled on his reworking of this apartment in the 9th arrondissement it was love at first sight. The neutral palette warmed by terracottas and red, the clever mix of classic and modern, the soft light filtered through floating drapes. Petite but perfect.

 

Masculine and marble

Posted on Fri, 3 Jul 2020 by midcenturyjo

Floor to ceiling carrara marble, a deep soaker tub next to a gas fire place, dark rich walnut against the bling of gold. It’s luxurious with a hint of retro and a definite masculine feel. Timeless and sophisticated. Bathroom dreams from Colorado based Studio Thomas.

Ballroom House

It was a ballroom and dance school in a former life and it certainly hasn’t lost its dramatic style. High ceilings, heritage features and daring dashes of colour. By Melbourne-based interior design firm Larritt-Evans.

A weekend retreat in a calming colour palette of silvery greys and off whites, an inviting combination of custom and vintage furniture pieces and an emphasis on patina and polish. It all adds up to a delightful country house in Connecticut in a style that the interior designers Dumais call “airy rustic glamour”. I call it simply lovely.
