“The house was inspired by New England cottage style, a nod to the coastal homes built on this boulevard in the 1930s. Our goal was to bring back that charm and create a warm, family friendly environment without sacrificing an elegant edge. With no exposed drywall throughout the house, we placed focus on materiality decorative lighting, and collectible design elements.”
With an emphasis on the artisan and vintage this beach house is unique and packed with personality. Beautifully curated and sourced it certainly isn’t a clichéd interpretation of coastal living but a celebration of place and space. Ponte Vedra by Miami-based Bunsa Studio.

Tired of beige on beige? Craving colour, strong, bold and fabulous? This Culver renovation by Sagrada Studio embraced the client’s Indian roots and showcased her collection of art and textiles. Unique and full of personality. Beige? Who needs beige?
The loving renovation of this 1860’s cottage in the Bayou St. John neighborhood of New Orleans consisted of an addition to the rear of the house for a new primary suite and mudroom as well as the full renovation of the existing baths, laundry room, and main living areas. Designing a home that felt untouched by time but functions well for a modern family resulted in a respite full of dreamy and relaxed spaces meant to support and inspire the creatives that live there. A soft and layered color palette, vintage inspired baths, painted wood floors, and a downright cheerful personality makes this sweet home perfectly charming, leaving us lost in reverie.
I am smitten with this vintage vibin’ home. Charming it absolutely is. The gingham in the living room paired with stripes and florals is soooo pretty. And the curtains in the bathroom partitioning that stunning tiled bath/shower area – the drama! Designed by Logan Killen Interiors.

“A charming mid-century California Bungalow in a riverside location is sensitively and deftly re-imagined with extensive additions, renovations and interior design covering all spaces new and old … Calm and quiet, flooded with natural light and views to the garden through every window and even brick, this home is magnificently responsive to everything the busy and happy family can throw at it inside and out. As, hopefully, all homes can be.”

“This Haussmannian apartment houses a clever mix of strong contemporary pieces, nuanced by furniture with vintage accents. The bold colour choices, the onyx of the worktops, the marbled resin of the floor and the curved red wall of the kitchen shake up this traditional Parisian interior.”
