I find myself, especially this time of year, drawn to rich, warm tones that would make the white and grey exterior of Canadian winter less harsh and miserable. This Darlinghurst terrace home designed by Jason Mowen is just beautiful. Shades of brown, rust and mustard really set the stage here. Velvet is my favourite fabric so I’m dying over the sofa in the first few photos. Perfection. (Photos: Felix Forest)

Pattern and colour in a Madrid home

Posted on Fri, 9 Nov 2018 by KiM

Taking colour and pattern to another level in this renovated 350 m2 home in Madrid designed by architect and interior designer Jean Porsche of xsche*. Royal blue and emerald green never looked so good together.

If any of you were questioning the use of lots of colour and pattern in your home, take a lesson from the Burke sisters. Anna and Caroline Burke of Anna Burke Interiors went wild in this Upper East Side duplex, and I adore every square inch. Moss green velvet walls, seagrass rugs, banquettes and more banquettes, murals, grasscloth, the glossiest of gloss walls, polka dots, stripes…….

I love colour and pattern, the more the merrier. I equally love light, bright and white. I like a touch of maximalism, a little restraint, eclectic and traditional. I love collections and books, personal treasures, things found, vintage, antique and tribal. I love soft light and simple living. I love the portfolio of Notting Hill interior decorator Kate Guinness.
