Notting Hill based design firm Barlow & Barlow embraced colour in this project for a fashion stylist who appears to take family life pretty seriously. 😉 This home has such a great energy for children to grow up in and is so lively and whimsical. I’d take this over stuffy and over-done any day.
Giancarlo Valle of the eponymous Studio Giancarlo Valle is arguably one of our favourite designers. A strong design aesthetic, an assured use of colour, a wonderful sense of light and shade, space and void. This Soho Townhouse has been taken from bland and boring new build to a home full of colour and character, style and daring.

If the last house was all about restrained colour palettes and minimalist vibes allowing the old house to shine this one is all about colour and pattern in a new build. Think more, more, more and perhaps just a little bit more. Even with so much going on the house is not visually cluttered. In fact its clean contemporary lines are the perfect foil to the extravagance. What a fun house to grow up in! St Helena, Napa Valley by ETC.etera.
Colour doesn’t have to scream at you “Look at me. Look at me.” Colour can surround you quietly, uplift you, calm you, delight you. This lovely Georgian house in Lewes, East Sussex by Cave Interiors is just such a place. Fabulous family fun.
“We designed this model apartment for The Belnord, a historic luxury residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The building’s rich past influenced the mix of old and new in the 4-bedroom space. Customized furnishings and fixtures, along with antique and vintage pieces, bring the character of the spaces to life.”
The apartment may be in the Big Apple but the look is la française. The Belnord by New York-based Anna Karlin who not only designs furniture and lighting but everything from digital and print to interiors and set design.
