Lots of brightness and warmth in this Michigan home designed by Jean Stoffer. It is a wonderful example of how to break up lots of white with some dark moments. The black front door, the dark kitchen coffee bar, the charcoal tile and millwork in the mudroom, the navy wainscotting and ceiling in the dining room, the dark green nursery…. all add drama and coziness.
I have a case of serious kitchen envy thanks to Alessia and Sarah of Chicago/Detroit based design firm reDesign. This kitchen, pantry, mudroom and laundry renovation was inspired by a trip to the South of France. The original floor plan was choppy and unified, which we used to our advantage to create functional work rooms while opening up the kitchen and dining areas. Our clients had a long list of needs, like a cathedral ceiling and access to the side entry, which we were able to navigate through careful space planning. To keep things feeling cohesive, sourced complimentary materials through each space, differentiating them through custom details.
The perfection of putty … or cream, off-white, biscuit, buff, ecru, fawn, mushroom, oatmeal or sand. Call it what you will the colour palette of this beach house on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula creates a zen like oasis, the perfect getaway from the city’s hustle and bustle.

It’s about bespoke details, high style and comfort. About layers of texture and materials and meaning. It’s about “the creation of spaces that nurture the family and provide a beautiful backdrop for life’s memories to unfold.” Nichols Hills by Oklahoma-based Sara Crooks Design.
Take marble & timber and contrast them with brass, steel and concrete. Create a bold colour palette and accentuate it with striking wallpaper. Play with the relationship between open public spaces and intimate private ones. All with an eye on modern luxury and practical family living. Cammeray Residence interiors by Woods & Warner.
