Oh the drama! Oh the theatre! Oh the inspiration! What else would you expect from Lyon-based designer Claude Cartier? A master of colour, texture and pattern his work may divide opinions but it is always on the cutting edge of design.
“We were commissioned to re-imagine the informal living room, entrance hall and the master bedroom. Taking cues from the colour palette defined by the client we assembled a series of statement pieces that created unexpected moments, like the oversized Sammode Studio lamp and Dedar wallpapered ceiling. The unique mix of vintage, pre-owned and new pieces also includes a restored Italian book case, a Florence Knoll credenza and the Italian Gronda Mirror/Coat Racks. Despite working with an earthy palette, we succeeded in creating a richly textured series of spaces that are sophisticated yet accessible.”
Earthy and rich, unexpected and inspiring. Harking to the past and definitely ahead of the curve. An atmospheric reworking of old spaces. What else would you expect from Melbourne’s style maven Simone Haag?

“The full refurbishment of an Arts and Crafts family home in North London, with a mid century vibe and an abundance of colour and texture. Lime paint, terrazzo flooring and cane were used extensively to breathe new life into this period property.”
I love modern living in a historic house and when it’s as sympathetically creative and colourful as this renovation by Studio Duggan then I love it even more!
Colour, pattern, texture and personality. It’s a sensory overload in the best possible way. Think rooms maxed out with wallpaper next to calming, neutral breakout spaces. It’s luxe and loud, welcoming and at times cocooning. It’s the reworking of a home in London’s Chelsea by Bryan O’Sullivan Studio.
If it looks familiar it is. Inigo (the estate agency for Britain’s most marvellous historic homes, from the team behind The Modern House) has the listing for the wonderfully eclectic and quirky home of London-based interior stylist and creative director Marianne Cotterill. I was going to say hurry if you were interested but checking on the property again before I shared has revealed that it is already under offer. I wonder what the new owners will do?
