Hutley & Humm

Posted on Mon, 21 Aug 2023 by KiM

Melissa Hutley and Charlie Humm, of London and Surrey based design studio Hutley and Humm love antiques, pattern, relaxed elegance and character. They also clearly love colour and take a really approachable, whimsical and add a touch of modern to their mostly British-vibing spaces. The greens in combination with that marble in the kitchen above completely sold me 🙂

Casa Tropicale

If a mid-century modern home had a baby with Jonathan Adler, had an affair with Kelly Wearstler, and then her granny showed up to the party – the result is this eclectic and extremely fun home designed by Jamie Bush.

A former B&B becomes a family retreat

Katie’s team was tasked with decorating this layered home, previously a charming bed and breakfast nestled in the West Seattle neighborhood overlooking the serene Puget Sound. Working alongside the homeowner, photographer Deb Achak, color, texture, and pattern come together to highlight and expand on the home’s existing architectural details and historical nods.
I had to share another project by designer Katie LeClercq. Her effortlessly casual and comfortable style whilst embracing original details is 150% blog worthy. Photography: Aaron Leitz

The magical 19th century home of Rose Uniacke

Posted on Wed, 9 Aug 2023 by KiM

Rose Uniacke is the doyenne of understated, elegant design. Her 1860s mansion in London’s Pimlico neighborhood is everything she exudes in her designs. It is stately, exquisitely minimal, poetic, intentional, restrained and absolute perfection.
“I fell for this house years before we bought it. There was a magic. But it was too large, too damaged and most definitely too big a project. My husband, David and I walked away; it would be madness to take it on. But it never left me. I often thought about how I might tame it’s space, just enough to become liveable. Three years later, it was still there. Nobody else would touch it, and we took the plunge.” Photos: François Halard

The renovation of this Asa Norte apartment in Brasília was all about enhancing the social spaces. The empty nesters were downsizing from a larger duplex but still wanted the spaciousness they were accustomed to. The CoDA arquitetura design team embraced this challenge by creating integrated areas that maximize utility. A bedroom was repurposed to enlarge the living room, while the kitchen was reimagined to blend with the social zone seamlessly. Private spaces remained intact, with an expanded ensuite and versatile guest rooms doubling as home offices. The result? A unified, airy space embracing park views.
