“We create spaces that truly reflect and perfectly fit the people who use them; making comfortable and atmospheric spaces that speak from the heart, to the heart.”
From rabbit warren like student accommodation to comfortable family home all within a heritage listed five-storey Georgian townhouse with 4 metre ceilings. A daunting but exciting design challenge for Harding and Read. How to create a warm inviting home yet restore or replace original features? Here’s how.
Give me a home with lots of history where you don’t have to worry about scratches on the floors or paint chipping off a door and I am in my glory. This time-worn, historic beauty in the Spanish town of Oropesa is magical. It is a feast for the senses with a beautiful assortment of colours and textures. Designed by Marta de la Rica.
As much as I like an almost minimalist neutral room, a zen like space with rich textures and desaturated hues, deep down my heart belongs to colour and pattern and details. Now if I could just live in this Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse room by Frampton Co life would be just about perfect.
What is it with all Parisian designers consistently rocking my world?!?! Here is a new-to-me designer Fabrizio Casiraghi and snippets from several of his fabulous projects. He experiments with color, creates surprising melanges and masters the use of light. His experience at the French architecture studio of Dominique Perrault and his formative years at Polytechnic University of Milan, enabled him to achieve the perfect balance between lyricism and milanese sophistication, austerity and purity. Fabrizio Casiraghi redefines a free modernity that isn’t opposed to the past but rather incorporates historical references, a discrete ambiance and a taste for the intimate while also being daring with bold combinations and through the imaginative use of light and space. Casiraghi delights in overturning the codes of interior design with surprising contrasts: neon light with ancient mirrors, precious fabrics with industrial resin, and antique furniture with extravagant plant displays, always with a seductive harmony and an invitation to travel, sometimes calm, sometimes exotic.
This bachelor is bound to score some dates with his fantastic pad in San Francisco designed by Studio Munroe. This single level three bedroom home for a 20-something bachelor needed to respect its classic Edwardian detailing while channeling the spirit and lifestyle of its young owner and the dynamic surrounding neighborhood. Unexpected wallpaper, deep jewel toned paint, and a mix of bespoke furnishings did the trick. (Photos: Thomas Kuoh)
