“Hidden in the canyon of Irvine, California, this 10,000 square foot home is full of Spanish influences. With architectural foundations like beautiful archways and organic characteristics, our team brought a vision to life that is uniquely exquisite. As a result, you’ll see high ceilings, geometric shapes, plaster throughout, and luxury goods for an eloquent look. With an intentional design approach that is functional and aristocratic, our design encompasses natural light and a trendy color palette.”

Blue might be one of my least favourite colours but this home designed by Laura Stephens has several pretty shades that I could get behind. Especially that Oval Room Blue library/living room, and with accents of red against it it’s even more special. Though could be because I’m so smitten with those beautiful built-in bookcases.

With its minimalist lines, natural finishes and archways for doors this Brooklyn Brownstone by New York-based interior designers Jae Joo Designs has an almost zen-like feel. Imbued with beauty and streamlined function as well as a soft colour palette it is restrained and elegant.
