Elegant and a bit edgy is a mix that always captures my heart and eyeballs. My eyeballs almost popped out of my head when I saw this new London location home available through Shoot Factory. Marble, brass and crystal chandeliers is a combination that you can never go wrong with. NEVER!
Eclectic decadence with European maximalism flair is how I would describe Dimore Studio. Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran have designed and carried out every project in a personal and recognizable way: objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects to create and forge a particular atmosphere. A timeless visual and emotional pathway. Research focused on details makes every creation, sign, proposal, suggestion, innovation and reference simple, albeit sophisticated. A language inspired by a set of emotional alchemies made of unexpected choices, preservation, inventions, appreciation of prints, lights, lacquers and oxidations. An uncensored aesthetic where each item has its own power and expressive “raison d’être”, while representing a part of the ensemble as the protagonist. It has been years since we featured this Milan-based design firm (here, here and here) so here is a look at some spaces we haven’t previously featured.
Outside the windows it’s ceaseless golf greens. Inside it’s ceaseless stylish space. If only all manifestations of Russian wealth were as lovely as this Moscow home, Agalarov Estate, by local architect Petr Yushin.
I’m real estate hunting in the oh so upmarket suburb of Point Piper. Built in 1905, this Edwardian mansion has expansive north easterly views across Point Piper and Rose Bay to Manly. I must admit my favourite luxury indulgence in this house is the master bedroom’s bath perched in its own alcove overlooking Sydney Harbour. The photos don’t do this property justice. You can get a better idea of how serenely beautiful it is from the video. Link here while it lasts.
Shelby Girard (head of design at Havenly) defines her style as Parisian modern – a chic contrast of the minimal, the ornate, and the edgy. I would add glamorous to that list, which is evident in this black, dark blue, and more black home she designed, with lots and lots of brass accents. The dining room light fixture alone speaks volumes of her style. Love it!!! (Photos: Emily Sidoti)
