Don’t get me wrong. It’s the perfect marriage of old and new, of fabulous art and practical living, of the quest for the ideal home and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi. Yes this heritage-listed home in the Brisbane suburb of New Farm by MMO Interiors may represent the perfect design marriage (and my dream home) but, if it was mine, I’d be taking the art in the event of a break up. Actually that’s wrong. I’d want it all.
Ninou Etienne of Fusion D is all about the fusion of drop dead gorgeous original architecture in dwellings around Bordeaux, France and the modernist sensibilities of her clients. In this home Ninou added graphic elements with tile and wallpaper for some drama and playfulness. You walk through the door and BOOM!
The renovation of this London Family home by Compass & Rose is a mix of Scandinavian style and a fresh, bright and youthful feel. With amazing Georgian bones as the perfect starting point, the house received a new kitchen and eclectic interiors. Love, love, love that kitchen. Sympathetically modern yet traditional, scandi and a touch of industrial all rolled into one. (See kim’s previous post on Compass & Rose here.)
It has been a very long and sweltering hot week and I am very grateful Friday is upon us! For me this weekend will be about bathroom renovation shopping (husband doesn’t know this yet but I just typed it for all to read so I guess it has to happen now!), some personal house touring and photo taking for this year’s Glebe House Tour (so excited!) and finishing up a house tour of my own for another blog (oh yeah!). I will leave you with this glorious apartment that is fancy and fabulous by Spanish interior design firm IN DESIGN (photos: Manolo Yllera)
A simple palette of whites and washed out sea glass hues layered with textures and natural finishes. A comfortable elegance, a restrained luxury, tranquil, uncomplicated. A simple beauty. Laffite’s Pointe by Houston, Texas based interior designer Ginger Barber.
