Elena Frampton and her architecture, design and art advisement team at Frampton Co typically bring on the funk in their boldly graphic, highly artful spaces but this Bridgehampton estate is not that. And I love it just as much as say, this project, or this one. It’s modern farmhouse style with a calming, neutral colour scheme and art to coexist harmoniously.
This house in Notting Hill, London was designed by Harding and Read and is absolutely beautiful, particularly the dreamy kitchen! This distinguished Regency villa had been split up awkwardly into three flats. The key challenge was to weave the spaces back together in such a way that honoured the original proportions of the property and make best use of clumsier extensions that had been added over time. The client wanted the property to feel that it had evolved organically and also needed it to perfectly fit their modern family life. We designed architectural detailing that worked seamlessly with the original features and sourced furniture, fabrics and artworks, new and old, that celebrated the personal stories of each family member.
Oh, to have 5 stories and 7000 sq ft of space to play with. This townhouse designed by Rafael de Cárdenas of Architecture at Large has a casual elegance I adore. This expansive Lower Manhattan residence, located in The Greenwich Lane, is imbued with RDC/AAL’s characteristically rich atmospheric nuance. The five-story home has been designed entirely around the principle of a vertical chromatic temperature gradient. The earthen reds and warm peach hues of the garden and parlor levels give way to the subdued grays of the master suite, the playful greens of the children’s level, and the cool blues of the penthouse. The spaces are notably augmented by a series of artworks drawn from the collection of Beth Rudin DeWoody.
I’m packing my bags and moving in. I know the clients will look askance at me as I pose amongst the fabulous furniture and lighting but I shall endure their looks just so I can live in Apparatus Studio‘s New York showroom. We
The ancient and the contemporary sit harmoniously in this amazing 17th century home in the Italian city of Mantova. Wall frescoes are lovingly preserved in the minimalist rooms, heavy ceiling beams retained as well as the old oak floors, stripped and lightened. All are balanced by smooth plastered walls, translucent blinds against windows, a modern white staircase rising to the next floor and skylights splicing into dark bathrooms. By Studio Davide Cerini.
