I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on The Village. Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?

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 super stylish … like the theatrical showroom of Brisbane jewellery designer Christie Nicolaides by architectural studio Richards & Spence.
Spectacular views, an incredibly talented architecture firm and bold modern design where black is key. Lantern House in Waiheke, New Zealand by Herbst Architects.

Salt Lake City based Jamie Bellessa Design creates timeless and unique spaces with a twist or as they put it “creating fresh new design by sticking with classics while adding pops of wow.” What is ticking all the boxes for me in this Park City house is the butler’s pantry (OK the kitchen as well), the sweep of the staircase and the dark and moody office. Now before some of you get steamed about the practicality of books placed randomly on shelves with nary a cover or spine in sight let’s just cut the designers/stylist/photographer some slack. It’s just for an interesting picture. We all know the owners will have them properly placed in real life 🙂

Paris-based interior designer Caroline Andréoni is turning dreamy Paris apartments into bold and vivacious spaces with the addition of wallpaper, graphic tile, dark paint colours, modern lighting. Keeping my belief strong that Paris has some of the coolest apartments out there.
