The Artist’s Lair

Posted on Mon, 27 Mar 2023 by midcenturyjo

“The pairing of Sella and British collage artist Natasha Briefel celebrates Natasha’s evocative and daring collage style against a backdrop of elegance and sophistication. The result is a perfect harmony of colour, postmodern design and character in the heart of Hackney.”

Striking collages and post-modern furniture. It’s a pairing made in heaven. Add some quirk and controversy and this collaboration between designer and artist packs a big punch in a tiny Hackney flat. The Artist’s Lair by Sella Concept.

Cheerful and cheeky in Florida

“Discovered through Instagram, we were tasked by our clients to design a home to be the antithesis of a traditional northeast home (where they were moving from). The couple chose to refresh the home, originally built in 1955, as a way to breathe new life—and sneak an extra bedroom—into their space. When it came to the initial mood board, capturing a sense of cheerfulness and familiarity through the use of color was top of mind. With one heading a public art organization, integration of artful interiors and color was paramount. We designed the home with outspoken wallpaper selections and color combos that celebrate life.”

Definitely packing a punch with a riot of colour and bold pattern clash this home in Coral Gables, Florida is by Miami-based design firm Bunsa Studio.

"We opted for a colour palette that eschews the expected coastal bright whites and cool blues for a sophisticated pairing of sun-kissed terracotta ­­and earthy khaki with judicious accents of soft blues and greens ... Fun, youthful and relaxed, the home sparks joy for its inhabitants and visitors, but above all it is a practical family home where function is paramount."

Definitely not your clichéd beach house or Brutalist concrete bunker this Palm Beach, Sydney home takes both styles and turns them on their heads. PLAYA House by Hugh-Jones Mackintosh.

“Instilled with a European sensibility, East End Residence combines a delicacy in refined detail, together with a complete reimagining of the interior to anchor itself in place for many years to come. Set within Adelaide’s heritage East End precinct, the original home sits as a relatively contemporary insertion, yet lacked purpose. Drawing from an original connection to an artisanal approach and the weaving of industry, the home becomes a reawakening of both opportunity and place. The underlying focus hones in on creating a realignment to the surrounds, reinforcing views out toward the parklands as well as enhancing movement throughout.”

An urban oasis with a zen-like luxury. East End Residence by Adelaide-based Williams Burton Leopardi.

“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.
