Faded grandeur, modern furniture, tribal touches, truncated torsos, a confection of a little girl’s room and a blowsy summer garden. It’s a heady mix. Séguier, Paris 6 by Isabelle Stanislas.
When a textile and jewellery designer approached Brad Krefman of BK Interior Design to redesign her home in the hills of Mill Valley, California what was the result? A home that is bright and open, functional with high end finishes, light filled and fabulous, contemporary with a Scandinavian vibe, the perfect home for the client and her family.
P.S. If you love that fabulous painting in the dining room it’s Cool With Chloe, 2015 40×42 inches, acrylic on cut paper by Reed Anderson.
I’m daydreaming … again. A beach house somewhere exotic, well at least exotic to me. Somewhere simple but stylish, relaxed and beautiful. A house where bare feet are de rigueur as are long lunches with friends, dips in the pool, walks by the ocean. A house with natural finishes and layers of texture and a monochrome palette. A house in the dunes in Comporta, Portugal by Isabelle Stanislas.
We have been quite the fans of Brooklyn-based architectural and design studio Elizabeth Roberts Architects for many years now (previous posts here). Roberts’ work is considered, authentic and simply stated, beautiful. Nowhere is that more obvious an in this 3 storey townhouse gut renovation and addition. The soaring double height kitchen with its almost spartan luxury, the aesthetically pleasing spiral of the staircase, the juxtaposition of the historic and the new. Love.
It’s like I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it certainly helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Abbey Capital Offices in Dublin by Kingston Lafferty Design.
