“Interior Design project of 1 bedroom residence in Bebek, Istanbul. Designed for a single professional, this Pied-á-terre is created by combining vibrant energetic colors and various forms of comfortable furniture and lighting. Almost all of the furniture, lighting and rugs are designed and custom made by Merve Kahraman design studio blending together with vintage founds and contemporary accessories. The concept was to create diversity by designing multiple spaces in this fresh and cozy apartment situated in the heart of Bosphorus.”

A revelry of colour and pattern with a distinct Memphis riff by New York/Istanbul-based interior and product designer Merve Kahraman. Joyous and cutting edge.

Sensuous and moody

“We named this project the Brazilian Treehouse as we wanted it to visually feel like a sexy Stan Getz song. There was a certain romance to this project with our use of organic materials, lush colors and mood tones.”

When your career has included producing and directing music videos then it’s no surprise the rooms you create are a little rock ‘n roll.  Saturated colours and textures as well as a love for statement vintage pieces are typical of Tiffany Howell of Los Angles-based design studio Night Palm. Think edgy yet sophisticated, moody and sensuous.

Working on a Saturday

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.
