This home is everything that would never come to your mind when you think of a townhouse in New York City. Exposed wood ceilings, extra wide wood floors, painted brick, concrete walls, steel and wood staircase, linen curtains, a stone tub…..this is everything you want in a raw, natural, earthy, wabi-sabi, zen-like retreat. I am in complete awe of the architecture and the incredibly well curated collection of furnishings. Designed by David Cafiero. (Photos: Stephen Kent Johnson)
Lots of creativity, a dose of chic elegance and some drama can be found among the spaces by New York and Detroit based designer Corey Damen Jenkins. He mixes vivid colors with layered patterns to create architecturally inspired spaces that are polished, inventive and unexpected. Taking cues from the haute couture runway, his projects feature luxurious and refined materials. “My goal is to ensure that my clients’ homes are always classic, livable and without an expiration date”. We are committed to creating interiors that are elegant and luxurious but also functional, practical and never stuffy.
It’s about time I feature the work of London interior designer Robert Kime again; the last time was in 2017. It’s about time is a key phrase here as his spaces transport you to another era and the magic he creates in these centuries-old homes is so inspiring. Restoring an old home and bringing the interior back to its former life would be a dream. Speaking of dreams….that space above. I can’t get enough!
Interior designer Flora Soames added so much personality and family-friendliness to this stunner of a country home in Gloucestershire. It’s absolutely stunning with bits of period art and furnishings mixed with some bright colours and wallpaper and a gloriously large kitchen that I am head over heels in love with.

We can’t seem to get enough of modern farmhouse homes, and this one is no exception. especially the kitchen – that yellow zellige tile is unexpected touch and absolutely gorgeous! Another impressive project by Landed Interiors & Homes. In this Silicon Valley town near Menlo Park, we designed a home from the ground up for a young family. The clients were inspired by modern homes with Shaker simplicity and classically casual interiors. Working from the outside in, we consulted on exterior materials and window specifications, then worked with an open plan to specify the interior architecture and all finishes, creating the backdrop for traveled artwork and furnishings. The verdant palette, with its honey yellow and deep green, was hand picked for its natural cheerfulness. Modern farmhouse design finishes including contrast millwork, shiplap cabinets and trim, simple tile layouts, and a stair railing made from hog wire, traditionally an exterior material, were interpreted in a contemporary style.
