Loving the glam vibe mixed with dark greys/blacks in this Hollywood Hills home by Deidre Doherty. This fashion industry power couple came to us with a home to remodel in Hollywood Hills and a desire to marry their tastes for bold and wild, yet sophisticated and fine. Together, we created a glam concoction that’s a standout—even by the standards of the rock stars in their neighborhood. A leather-wrapped master closet soothes your senses in the morning. A snakeskin-wrapped powder room coaxes your wild side before evenings out. And robust elements like a copper kitchen hood, Calacatta marble, and a custom concrete fireplace are brash enough to feel edgy and yet solid enough to make you feel held and at home.
Classic and timeless, warm and inviting. This is the essence of Toronto-based Kate + Amanda. Kate and Amanda believe in the relaxed home that is both family friendly and stylish. Their aesthetic, light and fresh and never too formal. After all homes are meant for living in and making memories. A well designed space should be the foundation of a happy home.
Back in May Jo featured an absolutely divine kitchen by Minnesota-based interior designer Bria Hammel. I came across her portfolio recently and fell in love with so many more spaces that I thought a second look at her work was in order. By designing fresh, refined, welcoming spaces, we make a beautiful home functional and a functional home beautiful. Yes. Yes you do!
Shelby Girard (head of design at Havenly) defines her style as Parisian modern – a chic contrast of the minimal, the ornate, and the edgy. I would add glamorous to that list, which is evident in this black, dark blue, and more black home she designed, with lots and lots of brass accents. The dining room light fixture alone speaks volumes of her style. Love it!!!
It’s all classic Sydney terrace house on the outside and contemporary home on the inside. Clean sleek lines, limited colour palette and a repeating circle motif are the take home points from this narrow little house I’m stalking in the suburb of Paddington. Link here while it lasts.
