This chic, contemporary home may look a little museum-like and precious but it is a family home with some really beautiful and bold colours that tone down the seriousness and create a more fun and inviting vibe. I love that combo where the friends of the parents and kids alike are envious and always want to stop by and chill. Designed by Monica Fried. (Photos: Nicole Franzen)

Moody mid century

Posted on Tue, 10 Jan 2023 by midcenturyjo

“A complete interior and exterior remodel of a Paul Sterling Hoag home in Los Angeles, California. Restrained yet warm, we began calling this gem the ‘Zen Treehouse’ because of its treeline views and great vibes. The interior floor plan and finishes were reimagined to reflect a modern-day aesthetic while continuing to pay respect to Hoag’s iconic architecture.”

I have dreams of living in a house with so much space I don’t even know what to do with it all. What would I do with 29 rooms spread over 10,000 square feet? I think a home that large could be overwhelming but in the case of Jean Stoffer she took up this challenge like a champ and turned this historic Grand Rapids home into something spectacular. There are so many fabulous rooms Jean created in her home I could only narrow it down to 28 photos. There’s even a kitchenette between the master bedroom and bathroom 🙂 (Photos: Stoffer Interiors Photography)

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 stylish and what’s more stylish than interior designer’s own studio? By Nicoline Beerkens.

Hotel Saint Vincent

Posted on Thu, 15 Sep 2022 by KiM

A building with an illustrious past, the Hotel Saint Vincent‘s story begins 160 ago when it was opened as the Saint Vincent’s Infant Asylum by the heroic Margaret Houghery. Unveiled in the summer of 2021, in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District, the careful restoration of this 1861 building honors its stately history while layering on a new sense of modernity. The interior spaces are a marriage of original 19th century detailing with mid-20th century Italian design elements. Including 75 guestrooms and suites, guests and members can enjoy drinks by the newly refurbished pool or the dark and moody Chapel Club. Our San Lorenzo restaurant serves coastal Italian fare to locals and guests as well as the Paradise bar where all are welcome. The Elizabeth Street cafe offers breakfast pastries, coffee and Vietnamese fare throughout the day.
