Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Thérapie Clinic by Kingston Lafferty Design.

Dark grey and pink in a Swedish apartment

Posted on Tue, 10 Mar 2020 by KiM

My jaw dropped to the floor when I spotted this apartment on real estate site Lagerlings. An apartment in Sweden that isn’t slathered in white paint! The dark grey and pink is stunning and is perfection together. Also, massive pink sectional sofa for the win!

I think I have died and gone to heaven. This home I spotted on sköna hem is so incredibly beautiful with floor to ceiling architectural moldings (including a coffered ceiling unlike any I have ever seen) and when painted dark grey, they are even more dramatic and modern. Add in some modern furniture and lighting (the owners clearly have a thing for Knoll’s Saarinentulip tables and Flos lights) and this is a total dream.

Eclectic elegance in a Connecticut home

Posted on Thu, 27 Feb 2020 by KiM

One of my favourite design firms, Studio DB, created magic in this family home in Greenwich, Connecticut. The elegance of the architecture is brought down a notch with some beautiful shades of grey and an unexpected touch of glossy teal. Statement mid-century furniture and lighting mix with a bit of boho mixed in to the kid-friendly spaces create an eclectic and youthful vibe in what could have been a very stuffy, traditional home.

No ordinary apartment

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2020 by midcenturyjo

“Located in the bustling neighborhood of the 6th district in Vienna, this 300sqm apartment is a place of retreat for a well-travelled design aficionado. The apartment is divided in two units with seamless connection through wooden sliding doors. High ceilings and big windows create an overall spacious feel. The bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining space is the center of the apartment where friends come together for long dinners and endless talks. A composition of custom-made interiors, wooden furniture, rough linen and carpets, selected mid-century vintage finds and unique objects complement the general monochrome and understated design concept.”

With its restrained palette and casual sophistication this carefully curated home is indeed no ordinary apartment. A signature design by Annabelle Kutucu.
