The maximalist home of Hollis Loudon

Posted on Thu, 1 Sep 2022 by KiM

I came across the portfolio of designer Hollis Loudon Puig of Hollis Loudon Interiors and this first project blew my mind. After some brief sleuthing I discovered it was Hollis’ own maximalist, whimsical home in Loudonville, NY. that she had gut-renovated. It is A LOT of colour and pattern and then some more pattern and I know it’s not to everyone’s taste but I soooo admire her creativity and uniqueness. She even has a room devoted to antique Christmas decorations!

Revisiting Rita Konig

Posted on Thu, 1 Sep 2022 by KiM

I consider Rita Konig an interior design icon and since it’s been a quite some time since I featured her (there was this post back in 2014, and this one a couple years ago) I thought I would share a smattering of photos from her portfolio. Love her style so much.

Set discreetly on Queensdale Road, in a conservation area near Holland Park, is this generous four-bedroom Victorian home. At the back of the maisonette, a leafy garden, perfect for languorous afternoons soaking up the sun, extends 50 ft behind the house. In front, the living room overlooks a pretty terrace of pastel-coloured houses. The house has been decorated by its current owner, an actress, in a playful and eclectic style inspired by her time spent working at Graham & Green furniture store in Portobello. It is currently filled with a unique combination of antique pieces and colourful furnishings, which provide the perfect backdrop for her art and ceramics.
This home could not be more quaint, inviting and cozy. Give me a big mug of tea, a book and an afghan and plop me on a chair with a cat and leave me be 🙂 Currently for sale via Inigo.

Sensuous and moody

“We named this project the Brazilian Treehouse as we wanted it to visually feel like a sexy Stan Getz song. There was a certain romance to this project with our use of organic materials, lush colors and mood tones.”

When your career has included producing and directing music videos then it’s no surprise the rooms you create are a little rock ‘n roll.  Saturated colours and textures as well as a love for statement vintage pieces are typical of Tiffany Howell of Los Angles-based design studio Night Palm. Think edgy yet sophisticated, moody and sensuous.

Set in stone

Posted on Tue, 23 Aug 2022 by midcenturyjo

When is too much stone too much? Never when it’s handled as beautifully as in these spaces by Sydney interior designers Smac Studio. I’m swooning at the colours, the patterns, the way it is deftly used throughout. And then there are the stairs … and the shelving … and the bathrooms. Contemporary liveable luxe.
