Castle Black

Posted on Thu, 18 Apr 2019 by midcenturyjo

A colour palette that mixes dark and moody black with rich pinks and blues, an industrial edge with exposed brick and pipes, old married with new. It’s the recipe for a bold apartment by Chicago-based interior designer Lauren Svenstrup of Studio Sven. She calls it Castle Black. I call it vintage glam.

Some glam in a Hollywood Hills home

Loving the glam vibe mixed with dark greys/blacks in this Hollywood Hills home by Deidre Doherty. This fashion industry power couple came to us with a home to remodel in Hollywood Hills and a desire to marry their tastes for bold and wild, yet sophisticated and fine. Together, we created a glam concoction that’s a standout—even by the standards of the rock stars in their neighborhood. A leather-wrapped master closet soothes your senses in the morning. A snakeskin-wrapped powder room coaxes your wild side before evenings out. And robust elements like a copper kitchen hood, Calacatta marble, and a custom concrete fireplace are brash enough to feel edgy and yet solid enough to make you feel held and at home.

Modern and moody

A contemporary addition to a grand Victorian house is a moody, sleek and sophisticated cave. But before you think heavy and dark walls of glass draw your eyes to lush garden courtyard spaces while allowing light in. Malvern House by Melbourne-based architectural studio Figureground.

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps is it’s somewhere stylish. Software company Identitii’s headquarters by Fellow.

 

Another look at Suduca & Merillou

Posted on Wed, 20 Feb 2019 by KiM

I can’t get enough of the eclectic, European style of Daniel Suduca and Thierry Merillou of Suduca & Merillou. (See previous feature here). I thought I’d share some random photos from their portfolio that I just can’t get enough of. Mostly because of that photo above. Dying over the brown/olive wall with the unexpected addition of some teal.
