This lakeside home in Austin, Texas is the perfect family home with lots of entertaining spaces, a to-die-for 2 story screened in porch, and lots of colours and textures. Just the right amount of personality and comfort. Designed by Fern Santini (architecture: Paul Lamb + Inge Hendley, photos: Douglas Friedman)
Maximising storage, letting in more light and above all keeping the character formed the brief for the renovation of this inner Sydney Art Deco apartment. Oh and a modest budget. A timeless palette, opening up walls, custom cabinets, polished floors and the use of mirrors to bounce the light were all employed to create a chic city home for a young family. Darling Point by Studio Kate.
Faded grandeur, modern furniture, tribal touches, truncated torsos, a confection of a little girl’s room and a blowsy summer garden. It’s a heady mix. Séguier, Paris 6 by Isabelle Stanislas.
A newly built home loaded with patterns (I count 7 wallpapers!), colours and lots of glamorous touches create max personality. Hats off to Missouri-based designer Jessie D. Miller for keeping these spaces dramatic yet family friendly as the homeowners have 2 kids and 2 bulldogs.
Whether you call it traditional with a twist, elegant eclectic or a just colourful family home this Gramercy Park apartment by interior designer CeCe Barfield is as joyful and exuberant as it is chic and stylish.
