A designer’s own home is always chock-a-block with inspiration. Now imagine it’s the home of two interior designers. This Southwest London 3-bedroom flat is home to sisters Sarah and Caroline Stemp of Sascal Studio. Think palest pink, checkerboard and stripes and a custom work desk for two.
Sleek minimalism in the northern suburbs of Madrid. Referencing its Spanish roots but lightening and lifting, constraining and curating leaving a thoroughly contemporary home. Minimalism with soul. RI Countryside House Madrid by Burondo.

“Hancock Park is known for gracious homes that offer a striking mix between classic English Tudors and fanciful Old Hollywood architecture. Our goal was to preserve the essence of the home while also making necessary updates that would support the harmony, functionality, and appeal of the space. This meant leaving in some of the more ‘dated’ elements and creating an interior atmosphere that would compliment the original themes. We invited a new edge into our work by bringing romance and mystery into a family home, something unexpected. The result proved that sensuality and soul can add a necessary warmth to familial spaces.”
Beautifully curated and almost cave-like, an oasis from the glare outside the windows. Muted, mossy, mature and marvellous. Hancock Park Tudor by Jake Arnold.

Light-filled and fabulous this Madrid apartment by Espejo & Goyanes celebrates the historic bones of the building but adds a refined contemporary sophistication. Natural wood tones combine with brighter than bright whites while golden metals and black accents punctuate the scheme.

This house for sale was part of the monastic complex of Santes Creus (12th century, in Catalonia). It served as a hospital and warehouse at different times, until in 1835, as a result of the Spanish confiscation, the family that currently owns the property bought it. Due to its configuration, the property could be divided into three homes, making the necessary adaptations. It has 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms over 690m² and is beautifully restored so the new owners have nothing to do but move in their furntiture and enjoy! For sale for €2,495,000 via Lucas Fox.
