Pattern and colour in a Madrid home

Posted on Fri, 9 Nov 2018 by KiM

Taking colour and pattern to another level in this renovated 350 m2 home in Madrid designed by architect and interior designer Jean Porsche of xsche*. Royal blue and emerald green never looked so good together.

If any of you were questioning the use of lots of colour and pattern in your home, take a lesson from the Burke sisters. Anna and Caroline Burke of Anna Burke Interiors went wild in this Upper East Side duplex, and I adore every square inch. Moss green velvet walls, seagrass rugs, banquettes and more banquettes, murals, grasscloth, the glossiest of gloss walls, polka dots, stripes…….

Citrus Scandi

Posted on Wed, 17 Oct 2018 by midcenturyjo

Take an apartment with amazing bones such as soaring windows, ornate plaster cornices, herringbone floors and Swedish tile stoves. Fill it with the best of contemporary furniture (blonde wood obligatory of course). A monochromatic paint palette would be all  that was needed to achieve the much coveted Scandi style home. But add a slice or two of citrus oomph and it takes it to a whole other level. Talk about zing!!!

Black + blue + green in an architect’s home

Posted on Wed, 10 Oct 2018 by KiM

We are the biggest fans of Paris architecture firm double g so it comes as no surprise that I adore the home of Anne Geistdoerfer (one half of the firm alongside Flora de Gastines). All of the built in shelving blows my mind (2 posts in a row!), and the colour palette of black, blue and green is dramatic and really beautiful. (Details on the space can be found in this article)

A colourful Hackney Victorian

Posted on Sun, 7 Oct 2018 by KiM

I don’t know that I would ever want to surround myself with lots of bold colours and a really maximalist way of decorating but that doesn’t stop me from grinning ear to ear when I spot a home like this. This wild coloured and vintage-to-the-rafters Victorian home in Hackney may not be for everyone, but it sure is cheerful! Via jj Locations.
