Time for colour. Time for detail. Time for luxury finishes, for high-end projects. Time for sophistication. After so much of the scandi boho casual trend it is time for a cosmopolitan, urban elegance. Toronto based interior designer Anne Hepfer creates lush, rich rooms transcending eras and trends but still fresh and inspiring. Enjoy!
Helsinki based interior architect and designer Joanna Laajisto‘s philosophy is “not to clutter this world with unnecessary things but to find the hidden beauty of each space and to enhance it by creative solutions.” Two inspiring projects. The first Bar&Co, a modern take on a 1920’s bistro. Think marble, oak, leather, wrought iron and copper. Love the hand forged copper candle sconces. The second a dark and brooding minimalist home. A modern interior of rich woods and contemporary furniture.

I seem to be posting alot of Scandinavian design lately so I’m trying to mix things up a bit and keep you all visually stimulated with all kinds of room porn. I came across the portfolio of New Zealand interior designer Bridget Foley and was intrigued by her style. Effortlessly cool and casual. I love so many pieces – the chairs above, the leopard print ottoman/coffee table, the stunning cloche-shaped chandelier, that insane high-back bench/loveseat, the black leather chesterfield…but I’d be happy with just that wall of kitchen storage. *sigh*
Take a creative brush to a blank canvas. With painterly strokes apply the colours of life. A landscape to live in, a portrait of the occupants. A graceful vignette, a subtly sublime still life. Beautiful homes by Betsy Brown. Neutral palettes informed by careful colour. Classical and modern, delicate and elegant yet never precious.
