A wonderful example of contemporary family living in a classic cottage. Layers of unsympathetic renovations were removed, floor plans fineesed and the results are warm, inviting and tonal. Wee Burn by Greenwich, Connecticut based Becca Interiors.
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.
