Inspired by the joyful and eclectic atmosphere of the home in the ‘Paddington’ films we created a vibrant, pattern filled home for design lovers, with an emphasis on practical solutions for family life and interesting design details throughout.
This could not be more perfect for a family with young kids. The colours are so fresh and incredibly fun and have such a wonderful energy. Immediately brings a smile to my face. Also how can you not love a yellow kitchen? Designed by James Arkoulis and Saskia Howard of Howark Design.
“The house was inspired by New England cottage style, a nod to the coastal homes built on this boulevard in the 1930s. Our goal was to bring back that charm and create a warm, family friendly environment without sacrificing an elegant edge. With no exposed drywall throughout the house, we placed focus on materiality decorative lighting, and collectible design elements.”
With an emphasis on the artisan and vintage this beach house is unique and packed with personality. Beautifully curated and sourced it certainly isn’t a clichéd interpretation of coastal living but a celebration of place and space. Ponte Vedra by Miami-based Bunsa Studio.

This colourful Edwardian four-bedroom house in Kensal Green was designed by renowned homeware designer Alice Palmer. The house is a playful combination of colours and textures that come together and culminate in warm, vibrant open living spaces. Expertly considered, the interiors unfold across some 2,209 sq ft, and a lovely private garden is situated at the rear. Located in a quiet enclave of London near Queens Park, the house has fantastic transport links and is within walking distance to some of North West London’s finest green spaces.
The colours in this home are…..delicious! I want to eat this home up! For sale via Indigo.
“Having three children means we’re never really on vacation, but every time I enter this house I pinch myself.”
With its celebration of colour, pattern and texture, with its bold personality and light-filled rooms this holiday house in Florida is indeed a happy place. No wonder the owner is pinching herself! Ponte Vedra Beach by Angie Hranowsky.

The design of this Brook Green terrace, beautifully proportioned and bathed in light, was the result of working collaboratively with a young couple who wanted to create a sophisticated, stylised and colourful home. The Devol kitchen units were repainted, and we sourced a bright pink marble worktop for the island. Our clients’ existing pink artwork was the starting point for the furniture pieces, fabrics and upholstery scheme in the sitting room. In the dressing room we retained the inner wardrobe structures and made new doors – a combination of mirroring and geometric raised panelling transformed the space. In the bathroom, the shower, bath and taps were kept in situ and we fitted the striped floor and wall tiling, designed a bespoke vanity with coloured marble, painted the bath. Purity of colour was an important part of the vision and we worked hard to find the right shades to achieve an interior that feels colourful yet calm and incredibly modern.
Such a pretty, soothing colour palette of pink, yellow, green and blue that has a softness yet fresh energy about it. By London-based Golden Design. (Photos: Tom Carter)
