You now what they say. First impressions matter and this wallpapered entry hall certainly makes a statement. Life’s too short for boring beige. Queen’s Gate Residence, London by Nebihe Cihan Studio.
“This Paris Apartment project was a total restoration. The idea was to focus on the swirl design of the entrance floor and build outwards, stretching the space beyond this initial focal point. Height and curves prevail. Whilst the project was to remain relaxed and comfortable, we introduced curated design design and art pieces. The place feels personal, authentic but quite grandiose in the reception areas.”
It’s as much about bold colour as it is about Parisian chic, personality as it is about style and panache. French finesse by Studio ALM .

I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home. Link here while it lasts.
It was a ballroom and dance school in a former life and it certainly hasn’t lost its dramatic style. High ceilings, heritage features and daring dashes of colour. By Melbourne-based interior design firm Larritt-Evans.
“A calm, refined atmosphere that celebrates the clients’ personalities has been created through the blending of styles within the shell of the existing home. Considered simplicity with mid-century influences were the driving force behind the design. A luxurious and minimal interior has been created through layered materials and textures.”
Considered simplicity – it’s a beautiful design concept. One I would hope I could adopt. Lindfield House by Sydney-based Daniel Boddam.
