Is it wrong to daydream that this is my apartment? No? I didn’t think so. Upper West Side Apartment by Space Exploration.
Sharing another unexpected interior by Studio Gusto – this time for a home in Washington, D.C.. What a lovely surprise this would be walking through the front door. Also I am having a serious dose of library envy. A must-have in the next house! Photos: Stacy Zarin Goldberg.
Old world charm and loads of antiques with vibes you would expect in a manor or castle-like setting from one of my Sunday posts, but instead in one of the last places I would expect – a Palm Beach, Florida condo. Architectural details like massive marble columns, salvaged door frames, ceiling beams and a wall of built-ins for dishes helps bring it all together. Designed by Studio Gusto. Photos: Charles Peed.
The Madrid apartment of Iñigo Aragón and Pablo López Navarro of design studio Casa Josephine is, as Jo commented in this post on a past project of theirs (I think located in the same building), ‘quirky yet oh so stylish mix of classicism and 80s Italian design‘. This one is perhaps leaning a bit more on the global/ethnic side but I am here for it! These designers have such a unique eye. Photos: Pablo Zamora
In inner Sydney, an artist and musician transformed their 19th-century Victorian terrace home, guided by their love for heritage, art and innovative ideas. The renovation incorporates hexagonal grey tiles, sparking a creative blend of materials, geometries, and textures. The design emphasizes openness, light and a strong indoor-outdoor connection. Sliding doors welcome in natural light, while a customized ‘cabinet of curiosities’ showcases their collections. The courtyard garden, reminiscent of a Victorian fernery, features vibrant art and unique architectural elements. Throughout, the original terrace’s charm is preserved, honouring its fireplaces, ceilings, floorboards, and stairs. Darlinghurst Terrace by Sam Crawford Architects.
