A playful farmhouse for family life

Posted on Thu, 16 May 2024 by midcenturyjo

“This farmhouse was envisioned for a young couple embarking on family life, emphasizing playfulness, vibrant colors, and the versatility to host guests. Our design process was rooted in the joy of incorporating patterns and colors, resulting in truly vibrant spaces. We creatively had to maximize the potential of irregularly shaped rooms from the original house.  Strategically placing the seating in the corner of the library, we were able to transform a small room into a versatile space suitable for hosting gatherings around the fireplace, playing cards at the game table while being surrounded by bookshelves that also incorporated a full bar. In the absence of a formal living room, we integrated a cozy U-shaped dining bench at the end of the living room.  The two wider sides double as chaises, offering cozy nooks for reading.  In creating this farmhouse, we prioritized vibrant, adaptable spaces that resulted in a harmonious home that seamlessly combined practicality with warmth and style.”

Designer’s own

Studio Johnston Head of Interiors and Project Director, Stefania Reynolds, ingeniously revamped this city-fringe apartment using a Mediterranean color scheme and clever spatial changes. Removing a kitchen column expanded the area and created a seamless overlapping layout. Two key adjustments maximized functionality: closing one end of the galley kitchen to create a separate home office and adding a storage unit with sliding doors. The dining area features custom-designed furniture and softening geometric lines with curved joinery and plush seating, all adorned in rich, earthy tones.

Colour, pattern and hip furniture selections create a cool first home for the new owners. Studio Keeta has created a home full of fun and personality with a growing art collection and pieces that speak to the clients. The designers have sought to “establish a dialogue between the polished and the unkept, the formal and informal, the tailored and the unconventional, what has been and what can be.”

A family home in Kensington

Posted on Thu, 25 Apr 2024 by KiM

This is proof you can never have too many colours and patterns (as long as they are similar in tones) and it together it makes a home so cozy and inviting and is complete eye candy. I adore this Kensington family home designed by Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler.

The Sauvie Island River House project by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design saw a comprehensive overhaul of a house’s interior and exterior slated initially for demolition. Dating back to the 1970s and having undergone poorly executed remodels over time, the core structure held promise in the eyes of the design team. Their approach focused on reimagining the flow within the house to achieve simplicity and clarity. The long great room was partitioned into distinct kitchen and living areas, cleverly connected by a two-sided fireplace clad in earthy glazed brick. Responding to the clients’ request for warmth and lively hues, the walls were adorned with douglas fir panelling, paint and wallpaper in a recurring palette of terra cotta, mustard, teal and blue reminiscent of the house’s original era.
