As you likely guessed from the teaser photo, this is another wildly creative and playful home design by 2LG StudioA double-fronted period property in South London that was in need of a personality injection to make it feel like home. The young professional newly-weds who live here love our use of colour and the juxtaposition of period features and contemporary design. Dark floors unite the spaces, grounding them and allowing us to be playful in our designs for this vibrant couple. Embossed wallpaper on the ceilings and under the dado rail in the hallway, strengthen the impact of period fireplace and coving, giving the perfect backdrop for eclectic elements of contemporary design in the lighting and furnishings.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in, week out. If you have to drag yourself into work (or school) on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Co-working space at Caulfield Grammar School by Studio Tate.

Restoration of a Regency villa

Posted on Thu, 12 Dec 2019 by midcenturyjo

The Regency villa had seen better days, sadly divided into 3 flats with clumsy additions and awkward spaces. Enter London-based interior designers Harding & Read who created a family home with all the mod cons while retaining its historic proportions and details. Atmospheric with its own sense of place the home feels like it has evolved over generations not resurrected recently.


A colourful modern apartment in Moscow

Posted on Fri, 29 Nov 2019 by KiM

Ilya Guliants and Katya Alagich of Moscow-based design firm el Born studio created an exuberant and somewhat whimsical space for a young couple with 2 children. The kitchen/dining floor tile is gorgeous and with the dark teal cabinetry is such a eye-catching combination. Loving the graphic paint treatment on the living room wall, the unique dining room pendant and the bold wallpaper in the bedroom. Lots of fun all around!

A designer’s eclectic apartment in New York

The Upper West Side apartment of designer Kimille Taylor serves as her laboratory. She went all out with some bold colours, and furnishings ranging from super traditional to ultra modern. I will get behind such a random/eclectic mix every single time. Attention-grabbing design at its finest.
