A hôtel particulier in Paris

Posted on Tue, 6 Dec 2022 by KiM

Visitation. In the sphere of hôtels particuliers where classicism reigns supreme, this hidden house bears witness to a Paris that is a meeting point of history and today. Another beautiful home transformed by the legendary Charles Zana. (Photos: Francois Halard)

It has been a little while since we visited the portfolio of San Francisco designer Jeff Schlarb, and boy did I ever miss his quirky, playful spaces! This home is a bit less playful and a bit more sophisticated than some of this designs but I adore the colours, patterns (note how in the black and white bedroom the fabric on the walls lines up with the fabric on the headboard!!!) and sculptural elements he’s known for.
We approached the interiors of this 3 story English Tudor Revival home with the goal of fusing our client’s interests in vintage and collectible pieces with our contemporary art-forward aesthetic. (Photos: Noe DeWitt)

Palazzo Campo Santo Stefano

Posted on Mon, 28 Nov 2022 by KiM

This seventeenth-century Venetian palazzo in Campo Santo Stefano, Venice is so beautiful I could cry. Having been stripped of its historic identity over many years, Charles Zana restored the home back to all its fresco, terrazzo and leaded glass window glory and it is magnificent. A contemporary masterpiece it became. (Photos: Matthieu Salvaing)

A sophisticated townhouse in Markham, ON

Posted on Mon, 28 Nov 2022 by KiM

These days I don’t often feature new build homes as those with history are more my thing but these photos of a model townhome in Markham, Ontario by Kylemore is quite spectacular. Their attention to detail (even in the photo above – check out the curves in the drywall above that stove wall) and the finishes and décor are spectacular. I’d happily move in there with a truck full of antiques and make this work.
