Luxury and elegance. This is what London-based interior designer Fiona Barratt is all about. I would walk into these spaces and think “fancy schmancy” but they’re not pretentious or blingy. It’s put-your-feet-up-on-the-coffee-table luxury.
Like a rakish bad boy holding court, modern statement pieces spice up the elegant, traditional rooms in New York interior designer Caleb Anderson‘s portfolio. His sophisticated spaces pay homage to the past always with an eye to the future. It’s about drama, contrast and luxe salon style living. The richness comes from layering of texture and materials often with a bold colour accent taking the design to the next level.
Let’s take a little trip. To Ukraine, a country with a vibrant design scene that we seem to have overlooked. How remiss of us. To make amends I present this amazing 180 sqm apartment in the city of Odessa by Kiev-based architectural firm 2B.GROUP. One bedroom with a walk-in-wardrobe to die for and a bathroom I’d be “lucky” to own. Love the panelling on the bedroom wall which, if you look carefully, is electrical wiring. Love the bookcase wall, the concrete, the exposed brick, the change in levels and materials to define rooms, the luxury in this small space living.
I’m lost. I can’t find my way out of the portfolio of Parisian interior designer Marianne Tiegen. I have, however, managed to leave France and land in Cala d’Hort on the island of Ibiza. Hot sun, cool lifestyle and a stylish take on a hacienda. The perfect chillout pad on the party island.
Here is a little something to distract you all from the fact that this is the last day of July. A stunning bedroom by Tori Golub. That Hans Wegner Flag Halyard chair is everything.
