The serenely beautiful, plant filled house shared by Kim on Sunday (here… swoon) belongs to stylist and art director Liza Giles and her architect husband. It’s easy to see that she worked for Designers Guild for many years. That lovely green, the freshness, the botanicals. I couldn’t help myself. I had to share a little more of her work with Tricia Guild. Simply lovely.
I was so inspired by the Kraków apartment by projekt i that I had to share another from their portfolio. A familiar palette of black and white is used in the public areas while a rich deep blue is the highlight of the bedroom in this stylish 50 m² apartment near the Wawalem Castle.
This is a prime example of eclectic décor that is totally random yet perfectly executed to create chic, sexy rooms. This Madrid apartment was featured in the latest issue of Nuevo Estilo (AGH I could not find this mag while I was in Puerto Vallarta!) and was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. This talented lady does not follow rules and trends, and I admire her for that. The dining room above is my favourite space – SO HOT!!! (Check out Jo’s past features of Isabel’s work here, here and here)
I am swooning over these spaces created by New York based interior designer Wesley Moon. I believe that a home should reflect the people who live there, with rooms that are fresh and tastefully put together as opposed to “decorated”. I propose the unexpected, obsess over paint colors, and adore couture-like detailing that may go unnoticed by anyone except the owner or the occasional visitor with a discerning eye. I am interested and well-versed in all periods of design and decoration, believing that a mix of styles is what makes a room classic, timeless, and chic. And with that, he is a man after my own heart. This first home is so European chic I adore it, and it is making me fall for yellow.
Hooray for Fridays! The weekend is just about to begin and my mind is turning to getaways. How about a Belgian B&B? Bricks and render and a monotone palette of greys and creams and linen and lush lawns with clipped buxus? We can take tea and relax in the summer house or explore the countryside and be back home in time for work on Monday. OK I’m daydreaming but what a lovely dream.
