I am in love with every detail of this Georgian townhouse designed by London-based Barlow & Barlow. A bunch of fun colours (as they do), tons of great built-in storage in almost every room, a to die for outdoor courtyard, a cool velvet wrapped cinema room in the basement (I need this in my next home), so bold and liveable and such great energy.

Shadow play

“We were invited to transform a classic prewar apartment into a stylish but unfussy family home. The interior palette varies as dark smaller spaces flow into progressively lighter larger rooms. This subtle transition of color makes the larger rooms, although low ceilinged, feel even more spacious and brighter. The use of velvety warm grays and ivory colors in the space is accentuated by an ensemble of antiques, mid-century modern and contemporary pieces. The clients’ art collection and family heirlooms bring depth and history to the eclectic mix.”

I’m not sure what I love more about this renovation, the subtle play of light and shadow across the apartment or the easy going almost lived in look? I guess it doesn’t matter because it’s the sort of home I’d move into in a heartbeat. Greenwich Village Apartment by Hendricks Churchill.

A relaxed contemporary family home

Contemporary French chic in this family home Biarritz-based L’Atelier Delphine Carrere. Think concrete cave with double height voids punching out the space while timber slats not only soften the sun and the hard materials but provide warming caramel tones. A play of positive and negative, man made and natural, inside and out.

Living above the shop

It’s fabulous to be back blogging in a new year. Here’s to 2022 being so much better and brighter than last year. I couldn’t think of a better home to start off the year than this apartment above a shop … but not just any shop. It’s Barracuda Interiors showroom in the sea side town of Comporta, Portugal. Think relaxed beachy vibe with natural materials, old found pieces and the occasional pop of colour against a bleached out colour palette. The perfect holiday getaway or imagine being lucky enough to enjoy it year round.
