“A forceful feminine approach was counterbalanced through the array of exquisite furniture & soft furnishings used with a striking sense of personality.”
Hollywood Regency with a high end 80s vibe. A rich mix of pinks and burgundies played against black and grey. Brass and stone and feathers. What else could your glam heart desire? St. Ives Residence by Sydney-based interior design firm Designers in the City.

With a personal aesthetic of simplicity, warmth and beauty, New Zealand-born, London-based furniture and homewares designer Cassandra Ellis has created a home that mirrors her belief in quiet, unforced, graceful spaces.

Pop-up shops, particularly those staged in apartment spaces, come and go with regularity these days. The concept is tried and tested, after all who wouldn’t want to be seduced into purchasing beautiful goods in inspiring interiors. Just like shopping your fabulously stylish friend’s house.
