A calming respite for a young family in Manhattan’s West Village — paying homage to their historic 1860s brownstone through warm textures, timelessly classic materials, and details that find refinement through the patina of living. Within the 1,600 square foot, three-story brownstone we were guided by European finishings and classic Belgian interiors, finding richness through a balance of natural materiality and embracing a harmonic moodiness. Seeking to add intentional texture and invite a calming cohesion, we integrated layers of natural materials, including raw & antique woods, earthy-hued heavy Belgian linens, antique brass detailing, and wall texture from Roman Clay.
Designed by And Studio Interiors, this home is breathtakingly beautiful. The drama of the black foyer, to the earthy textures in the living room, to the elegantly classic kitchen, this somewhat minimal home is really a masterpiece. Aside from needing to change out those dining chairs (so uncomfortable), every single other thing here is perfection.

Elegant and refined

Stately homes, refined and elegant. These are the domain of Madrid-based interior designer Lucía Gómez-Acebo.  Think classicism, antiques, a restrained colour palette and beautiful finishes. Whether high street or the designer’s take on rustic living, homes embrace elegance, style, comfort and luxury.

It may be a display bathroom for Casadecor but a girl can dream that it’s all her own. I actually wanted to just type a long, long line of drool emojis for this post but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Casadecor Exposición 2021 by Madrid-based Estudio María Santos.

Interior designers’ attention to detail and ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary is something after many years so blogging still continues to amaze me. Such is the case with the 1,750 sq ft Park Avenue apartment of designer Wesley Moon. It was bland and uninspiring and he went all out with onyx and marble and gilded wall panels and de Gournay wallpaper and gilded glass and cerused wood. It was transformed into his own version of the Vatican. Or a museum. (Check out the before/after pics)
