Warm and sophisticated with a tight colour palette of greens, tan and cream with pops of dramatic black this San Francisco house has ample entertaining spaces with low slung furniture to accentuate rather than block the view. After all if your Russian Hill home looks out to Alcatraz Island then it’s always going to be about the view. Joyce Downing Pickens of JDP Interiors.

“A period home’s minimalistic redesign and extension focusing on supreme detailing, exquisite materiality and a richly layered palette. The interior architecture celebrates clean geometries and a boldness of form. A restrained use of colour punctuates a monochrome palette while bespoke joinery and selected fixtures show a dedication to craftsmanship.”

Like an arrow from Cupid’s bow it’s a case of love at first sight for this Berlin apartment. Thoroughly modern but with just a hint of Art Deco. I do believe I have a new kitchen crush. Glogauer Apartment by New York based White Arrow.
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.
The brief was to reinvent this narrow terrace house into a modern inside outside home. The open plan living area flows seamlessly into the stylish courtyard while the modern kitchen has a birdseye view of all the proceedings. Living large in a stylish small space. Macgonical House by Sydney-based Hicks and Holmested.
