“I wanted to create a family home with soul. The house is early Edwardian and double fronted with good size rooms and high ceilings. To enhance the existing architectural character whilst retaining warmth and charm I pared back unnecessary detail by opening rooms where possible. I then introduced a simple elegant style with a good balance of texture and colour.”
From the snug loft bedroom down to the Shaker meets modern kitchen Acton House, London by Anna Haines Design oozes Brit style and confidence. I mean pink bathroom with roll top and fireplace? Yes please!
This Charleston, North Carolina Georgian home exudes character the second you walk in the front door. The homeowners (Jordan Kruse and his husband James Hewlette) wanted a ‘masculine southern’ vibe and designer Elly Poston delivered with grasscloth wallpaper, a glossy green bar, lots of blue, and black accents. Such fabulous attention to detail.
“Timeless interiors that are modern and sophisticated, yet relaxed and livable. Threaded through each project is a unique perspective that reflects a love of rich colors, unique textiles, a mix of traditional and modern elements and one-of-a-kind custom furnishings.”
A designer’s own home is always a true inspiration and Tatyana Miron Ahlers (one half of design powerhouse Pappas Miron) has created a magical family apartment in Manhattan.
“Like a sculptor who lives and works among hundreds of moulds, mallets and chisels. Like a painter who always needs his brushes close at hand to capture the colourful images in his mind’s eye. Like a couturier who receives his clientèle surrounded by bolts of cloth. That’s how Gert Voorjans lives and works in Antwerp.”
Bravo! A triumph of maximalism, visually stunning and not for the faint of heart. Atelier Hors Catégorie by iconic Belgian tastemaker and interior architect Gert Voorhans.
My love of all things dark. moody and full of texture and patina with lots of vintage will never ever waiver. And why my love of the style of designer Sean Anderson will also never waiver. When he goes dark he does it so incredibly well, and unlike any other designer I know. This home in Tennessee is packed with character and drama and I could stare at these beautiful spaces for hours.
