It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. AM Office by Pernille Lind Studio.

When colour brings life to a home that was in need of someone’s special touch. In 2018, Blyth-Collinson Interiors was engaged by a London couple to update a Capability Brown designed house in Oxfordshire which had recently been unoccupied and sadly, somewhat neglected. Saskia and her team provided a much needed boost of energy to the tired interiors; enlivening each room with colour and warmth to show-case the clients’ eclectic antique and art collections, which reflect their unique interests and their international lives and travels. Specialist paint techniques were employed so that every room tells a distinctive story. Sumptuous soft furnishings combine with wonderful carpets, art, beautifully bound books and sculpture to invigorate this lovely home with flair and a certain sophisticated, bohemian aesthetic.
I really appreciate designers who set out to create wow moments in their designs. In the case of Chad Dorsey and “the listening room” it’s this sumptuous deep red/burgundy wall colour with matching furniture (Ginger Snap by C2 Paint). In his “covid nights” bar area it’s another punchy colour enveloping everything but the floor. Birds in a ceiling alcove, and a massive brass hood with royal blue stove in an all white kitchen are just a couple more from his portfolio. WOW indeed!!!
High intensity colours and patterns can be found throughout this San Juan, Puerto Rico condo designed by Stewart Rodriguez. From the moment you step out of the elevator you know you are in for a treat. The fashion editorial photograph of the glass encased model sets the tone of what’s behind the main door. Bold colors and art are the inspiration for this interior designer’s home. Fearless to kelly green walls that wrap the living room and dining room allow for the eclectic furniture pieces to come alive. The combination of a pink chair with the yellow sofa show how strong colors palettes can work perfectly in a space. The dining room is a stunning blend of modern with old romanticism. The “Study for ‘La Grande Jatte’, by Georges Seurat, 1884-5” in the National Gallery and the amazing fashion editorial piece of Alice in Wonderland by a Barcelona fashion photographer create a dining room to remember. The master bedroom chinoiserie wallpaper with the bold patterns on the upholstered bed make a bold move look peaceful and chic. This home is a great testament of living surrounded by the things you love…
This Palm Beach holiday (the new term is “occasional”) home is no beach shack. Six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three kitchens were just the start of what was redesigned in this sprawling 80s home. Sydney interior designer Tamsin Johnson has drawn on materials such as stone, timber and rattan with an eclectic mix of vintage and bespoke pieces in blues and neutral hues.
