I stumbled upon this kitchen by designer Lisa Mende and it immediately put a smile on my face. Most kitchens these days I find completely underwhelming and lacking any sort of creativity and uniqueness and this one is anything but that! It was designed for a showhouse and to my horror I learned the homeowner tore it out and redesigned it after the showhouse was over 🙁 It was great while it lasted… (photos: Kelli Boyd)
Page Louisell Design is based in Chicago and known for sophisticated, livable and quality interiors including a fearless sense of color, sophisticated use of pattern, and mix of bespoke and antique furnishings. Well, I’m smitten, especially with this space – Page’s apartment. I’d throw in timeless too. Gorgeous!
Giancarlo Valle of the eponymous Studio Giancarlo Valle is arguably one of our favourite designers. A strong design aesthetic, an assured use of colour, a wonderful sense of light and shade, space and void. This Soho Townhouse has been taken from bland and boring new build to a home full of colour and character, style and daring.

She defines her style as “chic mix and match”. It’s fresh and fabulous, bright and colourful and in the case of this Normandy home elegant yet quirky, at times formal but always fun. Mainneville residence by Paris-based architectural designer Laura Gonzalez.
