It’s been a couple of years since we “oohed” and “aahed” over Tali Roth‘s 20th St apartment in NYC.  (You can see it here.) The space has naturally evolved over that time, subtle changes, new rooms designed. A progression, a maturation, a blossoming. One constant though. Tali Roth is still the queen of the gallery wall.

A colourful apartment in Paris

Posted on Fri, 6 Nov 2020 by midcenturyjo

“This Paris Apartment project was a total restoration. The idea was to focus on the swirl design of the entrance floor and build outwards, stretching the space beyond this initial focal point. Height and curves prevail. Whilst the project was to remain relaxed and comfortable, we introduced curated design design and art pieces. The place feels personal, authentic but quite grandiose in the reception areas.”

It’s as much about bold colour as it is about Parisian chic, personality as it is about style and panache. French finesse by Studio ALM .

Memphis modern

Pattern and color, curves and geometrics. The 1980s are back and this time they are oh so stylish. I call it Memphis Modern and Chicago-based Jen Talbot Design is a master practitioner.

A colourful, contemporary renovation

Great old bones but this Chicago house needed an injection of character when it came time to renovate. Carefully curated vintage finds, splashes of colour and an almost Parisian flair. Sophisticated and nuanced. Hyde Park House by Jen Talbot Design.

Let me sum up this lovely restoration in Sydney’s Paddington by Jillian Dinkel in just a few well chosen words. A lacy old lady has her heritage features restored, her storage amped up and her new life with a new family begins. Timeless.
