Lake house luxe

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2020 by KiM

I often say I need about 6 homes to get in all the styles I really gravitate towards. In the case of this lake house if you buy one big enough you can get in several styles in one go! That may be a bit of humour but I actually love how D2 Interieurs managed to pull this off and it still be cohesive. There’s a sort of minimal earthy elegance in the foyer and Miami chic in the formal living room and a beach vibe in the casual living room and retro in a sitting room and boho retro in the main bedroom…. it may seem like alot of competing styles but it has a wonderful flow and with a fairly neutral colour palette it is a success.

Give me Haussmannian apartments any day of the week and I’ll be a happy camper. This architecture is incredibly inspiring and makes the rest of the decor shine. Like in this apartment designed by Agathe Convert in collaboration with Amélie Buvat. A mix of dark and light paint colours, and the prettiest pink I’ve ever seen on the kitchen cabinets. Lots of built-in storage solutions makes this space functional on top of being gorgeous.

It’s all about sophisticated contemporary living but remembering the building’s Edwardian past. Think textures and layers, white walls meeting sissal floors, zellige tiles, stone and accents of royal blue. Clifton Gardens by Studio Gorman.

Dark and moody in Darlinghurst

Move from the darkness into the light, from a terrace house untouched for decades into a contemporary family home. Inky blues and denims through to light white, cosy and intimate to communal these interiors by Briony Fitzgerald Design strike a perfect balance.

 

More drama and colour from Daria Vasilkova

Posted on Tue, 25 Aug 2020 by KiM

This apartment was given a makeover with bold colour combinations and lots of drama care of Moscow’s The Art Group by Daria Vasilkova. Customers did not want to start from scratch, it was only necessary to add the fresh energy to the old walls. We were to make it full of vibrance, free and open, but meaningful and welcoming at the same time. This is a space for a family of young, beautiful, creative people with children. Ethnic motifs, antiques, natural wood, innovative, offbeat ideas in furniture design, whimsical lamps – everything turned out to be close in spirit to our customers.
