Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 27 Aug 2022 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. OMG I’d love to work in this gastrobar in Valencia. The tile patterns mimic neighbourhood facades. La Sastrería by design studio Masquespacio.

The project  is called “Aspire” and I cannot think of a better word to describe this confection of a bedroom. From the fresh (and pretty) colour palette to the deft use of pattern on pattern this romantic room (it’s actually part of the show house for Aspire Design and Home hence the name) is something we would all long for. A lovely boudoir by Washington-based Melissa Colgan Interiors.

Chinoiserie, checks and cocktails

“This spacious family home in Parsons Green delights with beautiful details at every turn, from bold chinoiserie wallpaper in the drawing room to a deep green panelled bathroom featuring luxe Arabescato book-matched marble slabs. Bespoke joinery was designed for the dressing room as well as a bar unit in the reception room, painted in high gloss for impact.”

Quintessentially English. Quintessentially fabulous. Parsons Green by Rosanna Bossom.

A seriously sexy boudoir

Posted on Mon, 15 Aug 2022 by midcenturyjo

“Smoke and Mirrors” is a modern interpretation of a sexy boudoir. The space is an antidote to the demands of modern connectivity and embraces the luxury of solitude. The room provides a platform to indulge in self-care, with a grand clawfoot soaking tub, a sensuous curving window seat, and a custom bar and make-up vanity. The soft arches of the entry hall create a dramatic sense of arrival with deep green walls and rich stone detailing. A striking hand-painted mural by de Gournay, inspired by the iconic Elsie de Wolfe, anchors the main salon. Contemporary art is juxtaposed against old-world charm throughout. Graphic, multi-colored marble tiles from Alison Rose for Artistic Tile add a modern spin to a traditional material palette in the separate bathroom space. The thoughtful details and layers of luxury create the ultimate escape.”

Show houses allow designers to push boundaries, experiment, and showcase their skills. I’m inspired by this sexy boudoir in the Kips Bay Show House 2019 by Studio DB. Where oh where can I include a bar in my bathroom? Genius.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish and what could be more stylish than a designer’s own offices? Atelier ND Office by who else but Atelier ND Interior.
