I had to share another inspiring project by Lauren Liess and I must point out that this one includes the library of my dreams. This modern farmhouse with a cozy bohemian vibe was designed for a busy family of five who love being outside. The home has a mix of colorful patterns and neutrals. Our clients’ overall goal was to create a strong indoor-outdoor connection and easy entertaining. (Architect: Thomas French Builder: Daniel Valencic of Great Jones Build)
With its restrained, neutral colour palette, eclectic mix of furniture, cool art and layer upon layer of texture this apartment by Madrid-based Estudio María Santos is sophisticated but not stuffy, stylish and welcoming. Think light flowing in through tall windows and a preference for natural materials like wood, stone metal and linen.
A colourful family seaside home and not a coastal cliche in sight. Think fun and fabulous, open plan and private spaces, orange and red, green and blue and don’t forget the yellow. An eclectic richness carefully curated to seem effortless and welcoming. Seaside House by London-based Studio Ashby.
The bones may be old but the look is modern. This reworking of a Madrid apartment (with impressive roof terrace reached by the sculptural sweep of a spiral staircase) by interior architect Inés Benavides preserves all the best features of old apartment while ringing in the new. Walls are removed, a modern kitchen is open plan to the living and dining while bright colour and pattern packs a punch.
