In case you weren’t sure what your dream home looked like, I found it for you. You’re welcome. A bespoke home nestled and perched atop a hill in the Oaks in Hollywood hills, the residence was born out of desire for highly considered design within a modest footprint. A perfect fusion of two worlds, old and new with industrial chic and old-world interiors. An impressive achievement that looks to the tradition of medieval Irish castle and incorporates it into a contemporary California lifestyle. A new and different nod to Case Study Houses as the house continues to further explore the ideological image of intersecting spatial realms and portrays a contemporary commanding presence a top the Hollywood hills. Another impressive project by Mutuus Studio.

Leanne Ford – a bit on the dark side

Posted on Tue, 3 Dec 2019 by KiM

I wanted to share a bit more from Leanne Ford because this woman can do no wrong. I am in awe of each of her projects so here is a little round up of some of her designs that are a bit on the dark side.

A marriage of modern and vintage

Posted on Mon, 4 Nov 2019 by midcenturyjo

This four storey Georgian town house is a wonderful mix of new and old. Think contemporary kitchen with poured concrete floors, flashes of retro orange, moody rooms in the older part of the house, vintage finds and a myriad of house plants. Fun, flirt and fab.

Dark walls in a Victorian vicarage

Posted on Fri, 4 Oct 2019 by KiM

Tasmin at Fawn Interiors Studio reached out about her relaunched website and I discovered this project while checking it out. I’ll forever be a fan of dark and moody spaces so this one caught my attention. In the first stage of restoring (and de-modernizing) a Victorian vicarage in Oxfordshire, she started with the snug and home office. Dark walls and sumptuous velvets in the snug along with some rustic touches and new-old shutters in the office make these spaces really work.

Courtney Applebaum Design

Courtney Applebaum is an interior designer based in Los Angeles and I love her approach to design. Minimal, impactful, eclectic, elegant. A bit random – just how I like it.

The armoire in the photo below caught my attention. Must show this to handy husband. 🙂
