You may still be wrapping your brain around what is going on in my last post but I am smitten so I’m about to stir things up even more with what seems to be Vincent Darré‘s Paris office/showroom. The woodwork alone is making my heart skip a beat. Lawd half mursey!
Paris designer Vincent Darré is the king of surrealist, maximalist interiors. His creativity is limitless and the combination of his bold colour choices and exquisite furnishings with Parisian architecture makes for truly unique magical spaces. This is his apartment and it is wild!
Contemporary art contrasting with original midcentury design pieces, mixed with bespoke pieces. Add in original features such as elaborate cornices, wall panelling and tile, highlight all with soft light filtering through floor to c ceiling windows and what do you get? Gallery? Home? Perhaps both. Barcelona II by Miquel Alzueta.
Just because you live in a small space doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Or comfort. This is the 350 sq ft Upper West Side apartment of Natasha Nyanin, designed by her friend, interior designer Nina Blair (NinaBDesign). (Photos: Nathaniel Johnston). Tons of personality, a dining table that seats 6 (the bench is brilliant as it easily acts as extra living room seating), a kitchen with dreamy open shelving, and a sexy bathroom complete this awesome tiny space.
In a comment the other day an American reader of ours begged us to show some style mixed with warmth and humanity (aka: lived in). Given the horror show that went on there I felt compelled to oblige. I spotted this apartment in a highrise in Moscow on The Village and thought it was perfect to share. This could not be more warm, lived-in, practical, full of life, overflowing with a beautiful energy thanks to bright colours and lots of vintage finds. My thoughts are with my neighbours to the south and I hope this brings a smile to your faces.
