This house gives me LIFE. Over on my Instagram account I was recently lamenting about the bits of white I had going on in my house. (Particularly ceilings and trim) And this baffled the masses. This Arts and Crafts family home in North London designed by Studio Duggan is a PERFECT example of a home that looks incredible with colour. Ceilings and trim included! The colours used here are absolutely stunning. The lime paint, terrazzo floor, tile and cane accents are beautiful touches.

Part English manor, part rock-star lair

Posted on Tue, 15 Dec 2020 by KiM

There is some serious drama in this home designed by Ken Fulk and I freaking love it!!!! This 11,500-square-foot San Francisco home was reimagined by Ken Fulk as “one part English manor, and part rock-star lair,” for a couple that is one half British. Located on a strip of Outer Broadway commonly referred to as Billionaire’s Row, the remodel took place over a six-week period while the family was away on holiday. They returned home to find a series of dramatic rooms including a double height portrait hall, a complete English pub, an outdoor cinema and a master suite overlooking views of the Golden Gate bridge and the San Francisco Bay.

Martha’s Vineyard farmhouse

Posted on Fri, 13 Nov 2020 by KiM

A perfect summer retreat. On a bucolic parcel of land in Chilmark, Sullivan + Associates and White Arrow transformed the town’s original post office into a contemporary Farmhouse. Our clients love to cook and entertain, so we designed their kitchen with a beautiful blue Lacanche oven, butternut and marble work surfaces, Waterworks fixtures, custom cabinetry to conceal top-of-the-line appliances, and a nearby stocked pantry. The home’s interiors take inspiration in the nearby ocean and farmland, with indigo-dyed canvas, warm textural linen, natural fibers, and leather.

I am forever a supporter of dark accents to an otherwise neutral colour scheme. It’s the drama that every home requires.

Rising like a rocky outcrop on the sandy dunes this stylishly designed guesthouse at Yzerfontein, South Africa is an oasis of calm, a dark cave providing protection from the glare of the sunlight and howl of the wind while opening to the stunning sea views. Understated luxury perfect for a beach getaway. Olive Tree Villa by Gavin Maddock.
