I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG Studio. A 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.
A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home.
The Liberty of London upholstery on the banquet seating giving another nod to the cultural heritage of the property.
I am one of Damian and Britt Zunino of Studio DB‘s biggest fans. Their projects always completely win me over with their attention to detail (hello glossy ceiling in the living room – my next house I want to do this in every room), and their love of pattern and colour. Every single room in this Park Avenue residence is a stunner. Sophisticated yet liveable. (Photos: Matthew Williams)

Sharing another simple, white space in Madrid because simple can be so good. This 250 m² home is in the Salamanca neighbourhood and was designed by Ricardo de la Torre. It has a cool, eclectic vibe with some mid-century and rustic elements that make it homey. I’m really digging all of the lighting here.
Despite my love of good food I don’t know what I would be able to concentrate at all on what I was eating if these were my surroundings. You would first have to pick my jaw up off the floor. Congrats to designer Jaime Hayon for coming up with this spectacular decor and what might be the most creative colour combination. La Terraza del Casino in Madrid is where you want to spend a magical Sunday evening. (Can you imagine this for a wedding venue?! *GASP!*)
