“Having three children means we’re never really on vacation, but every time I enter this house I pinch myself.”
With its celebration of colour, pattern and texture, with its bold personality and light-filled rooms this holiday house in Florida is indeed a happy place. No wonder the owner is pinching herself! Ponte Vedra Beach by Angie Hranowsky.

The design of this Brook Green terrace, beautifully proportioned and bathed in light, was the result of working collaboratively with a young couple who wanted to create a sophisticated, stylised and colourful home. The Devol kitchen units were repainted, and we sourced a bright pink marble worktop for the island. Our clients’ existing pink artwork was the starting point for the furniture pieces, fabrics and upholstery scheme in the sitting room. In the dressing room we retained the inner wardrobe structures and made new doors – a combination of mirroring and geometric raised panelling transformed the space. In the bathroom, the shower, bath and taps were kept in situ and we fitted the striped floor and wall tiling, designed a bespoke vanity with coloured marble, painted the bath. Purity of colour was an important part of the vision and we worked hard to find the right shades to achieve an interior that feels colourful yet calm and incredibly modern.

It’s like I woke up from a dream in my dream apartment. This home in Ixelles, Belgium is a sophisticated exploration of existing and new with a stand-out art collection and an enviable collection of furniture. Architect designer Bernard Dubois was a photographer in a previous life and it tells in the composition, light and colour of this chic home.

“The rejuvenation of the kitchen and bathroom in a heritage apartment in Darlinghurst required a delicate balance, combining contemporary glamour with respect for the existing art deco features. In keeping with the client’s refined fashion sensibility, a chic and innovative design was devised that combines functionality and good looks.”

I am completely smitten with this apartment in Vienna designed by Atelier Karasinski. Particularly the kitchen outfitted with deVOL cabinets, with the most spectacular original ceiling and painted in the yummiest Negroni red”. Cooking in there would bring me so much joy! The rest of the apartment is eclectic and has such fabulous details – hellooooo marble and antiques and Gucci wallpaper and surprise cupboards. (Photos: Ana Barros for AD Germany)
