“A young couple looking for a home with soul buys a historic townhouse in DC that had recently been purchased by developers bent on modernizing the space. This couple came in at the eleventh hour before the demolition was complete and hired Zoë Feldman Design to bring back the character of this old home with modern touches, eclectic art and design, quirky touches, while focusing on the sustainability in line with their ideals.”
Don’t you love it when the story has a happy ending. A sleeping princess, a white knight and a fairy godmother to sprinkle about the magic.

“Circus-like frivolity is conveyed with elegant strength via eclectic patterns and motifs.”
Vivid. Graphic. Bold. A contemporary apartment with a raspberry ripple repeat. “Crane in the Sky”, a Walsh Bay, Sydney apartment packing a colour punch and a luxurious material palette in just 200 sq m by interior design studio YSG.
I came across this Stockholm apartment on sköna hem and did a double take for a couple of reasons. First, it was suspect that this was a Swedish home. Those lovely Swedes aren’t exactly known for their colourful homes. Second, it was so unique and over the top that I needed to review a second and third time to make sure I didn’t miss anything. A layered space is always a win in my book. I want to discover something new at each glance. If I can evaluate a room in its entirety in 3 seconds, I am bored. Kudos to designer Pontus Nilvander for holding my attention for well beyond 3 seconds. (Photos: Johan Carlsson)
Sometimes all it takes is some modern artwork, some bold accent furniture and accessories, statement lighting, maybe a bit of graphic wallpaper and tile…. Coates Place was a 4 bed student flat that had seen better days, and after a complete home renovation, including new central heating system, a few new doorways and a kitchen relocation, the apartment is now a contemporary city pad fit for today’s living.

This art-filled Georgian Revival home in Charlotte, North Carolina was designed to be family friendly and is so warm, comfortable and casual. Style was not compromised here, and I am particularly smitten with the simple, Parisian café vibe of the kitchen. The home has a subtle beachy, Caribbean vibe. By interior designer Barrie Benson.
