Quality over quantity, less is more, functionality as well as beauty. Houston- based interior designer Jill Egan Interiors may hold these as her design mantras but these sophisticated and chic spaces prove more than anything that beauty reigns supreme.
Are you dreaming of an overseas getaway? I know I am. Sadly the international borders are closed so a dream it will remain … for now.

Home is where the heart is. Home is where our families live and our friends gather, where our memories are made and carefully archived, where our creativity flourishes, where our lives can slow, where we are nourished and renewed. Hudson Home by Brooklyn-based General Assembly.

“… this home shows how one simple curve can not only inspire the architects, but, as importantly, set them on a new path of discovery.”

“A humble, single level living pavilion on the street side draws on the simplicity of surrounding beach houses, many of which were owner built over the years. Connection to the garden and landscape was imperative to the design. Kangaroos literally inhabit the house. The structural system is exposed and honest. Operable screens allow for the control of privacy and when the whole house is opened up it almost disappears, evoking the social mood of camping.”
Open, honest and laid back. Bendalong Beach House by Madeleine Blanchfield Architects.
