The family friendly, dynamic and spirited vibe of this home is not quite what you’d expect when the exterior is a conventional Colonial home. I LOVE the unexpected!!! When the homeowners moved into this 1920’s center hall colonial in Essex Fells, New Jersey, they envisioned a comfortable, livable home where family and friends can kick off their shoes and unwind. The brief: Repurposed rooms, reinvented family heirlooms and a riot of color and pattern equal an unfussy environment that embraces the craziness of life with three young children. Perfectly Imperfect. Designed by Toledo Geller.
Brazilian designer Sig Bergamin is taking maximalism to a place where colour is IN YOUR FACE and art is KEY and patterns are BOLD and abundant. This cottage he designed has an energy that is inimitable.
Part gallery, part apartment, all style. The Milan loft home of Tommaso Spinzi of Spinzi Design a Milan and Melbourne based interior design firm is inspirational and aspirational. I think I’d take one of everything from contemporary to design classics from the 70s and 80s. It’s my kryptonite.
If a genie ever granted me three wishes I think it would be a hard toss up between a cure for COVID-19, world peace, a solution for global warming and a stylish pied-à-terre in Paris. Actually it would be a fight between a cure for COVID-19, world peace and a solution for global warming for the last two spots. A pied-à-terre in Paris is a given ;P I think I might just take this one by Gaspard Ronjat Interiors and Design.
I can barely tear myself away from the first few photos of this Houston mid-century home. Combining 2 of my favourite things – mid-century architecture and a huge wrap-around porch. OH EM GEE. I must carry on. This absolutely delightful home was given the Jamie Bush organic modernism touch with art gallery vibes, but where you feel comfortable enough to kick your shoes off and jeans are welcome any day of the week.
