Montréal and New York based designer Garrow Kedigian hates white interiors, and therefore I love him. I featured his Montréal townhouse several years ago and it was evident then colours were his thing, but as time passed it has become more and more evident he reigns over colour like not many others. Case in point, this Upper East Side apartment that is awash in mostly shades of blue and have fun accent colours like a large orange sectional. Kudos for Garrow making such a splash with this project. Photos: Trevor Parker.

Packed with personality and fun San Sebastián-based interior designer Mikel Irastorza respects the traditional Spanish roots of the building then starts layering … and layering … and layering. Fabulous fun!

Colour kaleidoscope

Colour and pattern and texture mixed with design classics and the local culture. It should be chaos but in the deft hands of the designers, it’s a triumphant kaleidoscope of personality and style. Mexico City residence by New York-based RP Miller.
