What’s the common link between offices and bathrooms? None that I know of except that these chic and inspiring rooms are designed by West Hollywood based designer Adam Hunter. The link between them may be tenuous but the design is strong. Think sophisticated use of colour, richly layered with a sense of drama.
The ancient and the contemporary sit harmoniously in this amazing 17th century home in the Italian city of Mantova. Wall frescoes are lovingly preserved in the minimalist rooms, heavy ceiling beams retained as well as the old oak floors, stripped and lightened. All are balanced by smooth plastered walls, translucent blinds against windows, a modern white staircase rising to the next floor and skylights splicing into dark bathrooms. By Studio Davide Cerini.
I love everything that Swedish design purveyors Artilleriet Studio turn their hands to. Yes of course their shop stocks the most divine pieces of global design. Yes their pop-up shop set design social media on fire. What more could you want? Well they are doing interiors now and here is just a taste of their creative genius.
Modernist Italian design meets a listed Victorian building in Notting Hill, London and the result is not a chaotic clash but a beautifully curated, family home by Francesca Oggioni. Key features are the muted palette and natural finishes, the preservation of lovely old features like the stone staircase and the streamlined storage that fades into the spaces allowing that minimalist look devoid of necessary, everyday clutter.
“The scope of work included an extensive remodel of the existing 3,204 sq. ft. home with an 815 sq. ft. new addition for the master suite. The challenge of this residence was to unify a hyper traditional exterior façade, strictly limited by the historic classification of the neighborhood, with an unexpectedly contrasted interior. Similarly, the extremely traditional layout was reworked to create less restricted spaces and to utilize the privacy of the rear yard.”
From 1921 to 2018, a beautiful renovation, clean lined yet earthy, rich and tactile while simple and soothing. Van Ness by the second L.A. based studio for today Simo Design.
