“We are passionate about creating unique, individual, timeless homes where warmth and functionality are paramount. We love colour combined with texture and natural materials, creating stylish, eclectic, comfortable homes where treasured possessions still have their place alongside the contemporary.”
If cottagecore is all the rage for 2021 then I’d like this cottage by Forbes Rix. A fabulous celebration of colour. Contemporary and light-filled. Traditional and eclectic.

“The Collector House feels wonderfully relaxed. Sunlight streams in from the central skylight and fills the rooms. The view of the harbour, framed by jacaranda and eucalypts, and the ferries passing by all contribute to the overall sense of calm. It’s a barefoot house – warm and grounded, with space for loved ones to gather.”
There are touches of humour and art, honest materials and a sense of the Aussie vernacular. There are private spaces and places to come together. And then there’s the view. Collector House by Sydney-based interior designers Arent & Pyke.

I spotted this home on the website of architecture firm Studio McLeod and later discovered that Beata Heuman was responsible for the the interior design. I should have guessed. Her omnipresent use of a plethora of fun colours and art and patterns, along with her incredible attention to details suggests this home is eye candy at its finest.
“The aesthetic direction for this house might be described as a contemporary urban approach—a space that is comfortable, warm, and simple-but-not-spare, eschewing overt decoration in favor of a light touch.”

What do I love about this London townhouse? The custom library shelves and the cosy wood-burning fire. The moody rooms and the conservatory with its traditional English greenhouse feel. The bespoke dressing room (look at that clever shoe storage) and the marble bathrooms. And the shutters in the bedroom and the secret rooftop terrace and the backyard and the … and the … Chelsea Townhouse by AND.
