The Artist’s Lair

Posted on Mon, 27 Mar 2023 by midcenturyjo

“The pairing of Sella and British collage artist Natasha Briefel celebrates Natasha’s evocative and daring collage style against a backdrop of elegance and sophistication. The result is a perfect harmony of colour, postmodern design and character in the heart of Hackney.”

Striking collages and post-modern furniture. It’s a pairing made in heaven. Add some quirk and controversy and this collaboration between designer and artist packs a big punch in a tiny Hackney flat. The Artist’s Lair by Sella Concept.

“Instilled with a European sensibility, East End Residence combines a delicacy in refined detail, together with a complete reimagining of the interior to anchor itself in place for many years to come. Set within Adelaide’s heritage East End precinct, the original home sits as a relatively contemporary insertion, yet lacked purpose. Drawing from an original connection to an artisanal approach and the weaving of industry, the home becomes a reawakening of both opportunity and place. The underlying focus hones in on creating a realignment to the surrounds, reinforcing views out toward the parklands as well as enhancing movement throughout.”

Colour in a Hausmannian

Posted on Thu, 9 Mar 2023 by midcenturyjo

“This Haussmannian apartment houses a clever mix of strong contemporary pieces, nuanced by furniture with vintage accents. The bold colour choices, the onyx of the worktops, the marbled resin of the floor and the curved red wall of the kitchen shake up this traditional Parisian interior.”

It’s like I woke up from a dream in my dream apartment. This home in Ixelles, Belgium is a sophisticated exploration of existing and new with a stand-out art collection and an enviable collection of furniture. Architect designer Bernard Dubois was a photographer in a previous life and it tells in the composition, light and colour of this chic home.

Pretty in pink

“The rejuvenation of the kitchen and bathroom in a heritage apartment in Darlinghurst required a delicate balance, combining contemporary glamour with respect for the existing art deco features. In keeping with the client’s refined fashion sensibility, a chic and innovative design was devised that combines functionality and good looks.”
