In Australia, we have quarantine hotels where returning citizens must stay isolated for 14 days to ensure the virus doesn’t escape into the community. We are very, very lucky to have extremely low and in most cases, no community spread. Unfortunately, none of our quarantine rooms looks anything like this “Waking up in Palm Springs” suite by Patricia Bustos. If only! Bright, fun, great vibes and positive energy.
“Working with a Grade II listed property like this one on Harley Street pushed us to design within the confines of a 1750s layout and its 19th c. alterations. The end result was a marriage of styles that highlight the property’s historical qualities within a 21st century palette.”
And isn’t a successful marriage what we all desire? The beautiful Harley Street project by Red Deer.

Dream loft alert! Curved ceiling moldings, picture-frame moldings, chevron hardwood floors, panelled doors, brass kitchen counter/sink/backsplash (!!!), oak panelling, a bathroom of epic proportions thanks to book-matched Calacatta Paonazzo marble…. Designed by Meyer Davis.
If you think your home lacks a certain whimsical or creative energy, then this project by Alberto Villalobos is packed full of creative ideas that are a lot of fun and pack a punch. It starts with ceramic dogs flanking the front door. Then a random swirl pattern painted on the foyer floor. A planter of ferns built under a window. An ombre stair runner. A green and gold kitchen. A patchwork terrazzo floor. A monochromatic orange office. A dramatic black and brass bathroom. Yesssssssss to all of these elements.
Curvilinear with bold use of colour. Oak and brass and honed marble. Hand painted abstracts on curtains. Sculptural with a hint of Art Deco and all of it contemporary. The 2020 San Francisco showhouse gave a blank slate Regan Baker Design created a stellar kitchen.
