Simple luxury

Posted on Thu, 28 Jul 2022 by midcenturyjo

Simple luxury, without fanfare, natural, tailored and highly personalized. Madrid-based Luis Puerta Estudio‘s work is refined, carefully curated with an emphasis on natural materials and unique pieces. What stands out most to me though is their appreciation of negative space, of the void, the “around”. Rooms and the furniture in them are allowed to breathe, to occupy their space without clutter, to stand alone yet together. What could easily progress to maximalism is instead a celebration of light and restraint.

Oh my! Can we just stop and drink in the loveliness of Los Angeles based interior designer Noel Pittman‘s Hancock Park home? Spanish Mission, trad meets new, block print fabric and handmade tiles. And don’t get me started on the library. I’m scanning my home looking for a room to convert into a version of that fabulous space. Love!

Arniano is a romantic, elegant and secluded farmhouse villa thirty minutes from Siena. Situated in a rolling landscape of green-black cypresses and hilltop villages, Arniano commands a panoramic view across southern Tuscany at its rural best.

The house is a rare find and has been lovingly converted into an unusually light and airy property by acclaimed interior designer Camilla Guinness. It is exquisitely furnished with a mixture of grand bohemian chic and simple Italian style, creating a beautiful, comfortable and much-loved family home.”
