Brazilian and blue

Posted on Wed, 27 Sep 2023 by midcenturyjo

Apartment BW by Renata Gaia Arquitetura (in collaboration with Vapor Arquitetura) transformed an apartment in the Paraíso region of São Paulo for a family of four. The living area boasts an open layout with a central shelving unit that defines spaces without restricting flow and features exposed concrete slabs and pillars, herringbone wood and marble floors. The design embraces calming colours throughout, with a vibrant blue entryway inspired by Frida Kahlo. The furniture showcases Brazilian design, providing both functionality and style, creating a youthful and personality-filled space that plays with unconventional textures, finishes, and colours.

Uptown apartment

Joyful and fabulous. Layers of colour and pattern , wallpaper and fabric. When family living is stylish AND fun it’s got to be by design duo of Damian Zunino and Britt Zunino of Studio DB.

This East Village duplex penthouse was owned by designer Alfredo Paredes and if you didn’t see the terrace photos you might assume this was located somewhere in the Mediterranean or tucked away in a Tuscan hillside. A fireplace, oversized, casement windows and 5 arched glass doors, natural white oak bookcases, panelling and cabinetry, raw plaster walls, reclaimed wood ceilings, French limestone tile floors all imbue this “it can’t be New York” vibe and the neutral colour palette of cream, brown and black perfectly offsets the architecture. This is stunning. Photos: Miguel Flores-Vianna.

Posted on Wed, 20 Sep 2023 by KiM

This four-story, 1940s townhouse is located in a Beaux Arts building in Buenos Aires and has such a beautiful neoclassical façade, with pilasters and decorative ironwork. Inside you will find a marble floor in a grand foyer (that transforms into an entry gallery/reception space_, a multi-level curved staircase, a lower level entertaining room with an impressive wine cellar, a backyard that is perfect for gatherings…. It is quite the party pad! Designed by Stephania Kallos and Abigail Turin of Kallos Turin, based in London and San Francisco. Photos: Ricardo Labougle

The owners of this semi-detached home in Dublin, Ireland approached interior design studio (and interior + lifestyle store) April and the Bear to refresh and modernize their dated and boring family home. The design team refurbished most rooms and injected some personality with new paint and wallpaper, bespoke furniture and wall beading, new carpets, curtains, furniture and lighting. The result is very much family-friendly, provides lots of storage, has a really “now” vibe and is a huge improvement from what they started with. They sent over before and after photos so you can see just how transformed these spaces are. Check it out! (Photos: Philip Lauterbach)
