Eclectic with textures and art

Posted on Thu, 9 Aug 2018 by KiM

An extensive collection of bold artwork. An eclectic assortment of vintage furniture. This home is checking some boxes of my favourites list. The client was excited by the 30’s California canyon vibe of the house but wished for more connectivity and comfort throughout. We took the opportunity to open walls and create more fully connected spaces. The variety of living areas within the house provided the fortunate occasion for a diverse palette of textures, materials and forms to furnish the rooms. A collectors environment emerged that blends 17th century to mid 19th century furniture and art. The house is an eclectic yet completely familiar and inviting place to call home.

An Airbnb in Prague

Posted on Thu, 26 Jul 2018 by KiM

Bára is devoted reader of our blog from the Czech Republic (or Czechia) and dabbles in interior design as a hobby. She recently completed this project and I had to share because it’s the cutest little pad, the colours she chose are stunning, and I’d love to stay here! I recently remodelled (on a tight budget) this small apartment in an Art Nouveau building in Prague to serve as an airbnb. We had to leave the kitchen cupboards and bathroom without major changes, but at least applied black “sticker” on the fridge and backsplash tiles. It’s so cozy and I love the drama of the dark wall colours and the mural. Find the listing here.

Passing with flying colours

I have been a fan of Irish architecture and design firm Kingston Lafferty Design for a few years now and they never disappoint. They mix antiques with modern and mid-century classics like no one’s business. And they are bolder with colour than most designers. And do it sooooo well. This post is 100% proof of this.
