There was way too much good stuff in Pierce & Ward‘s portfolio to narrow it down to one post. So here is more. You’re welcome. 🙂

Pierce & Ward update – part 1

Posted on Thu, 26 Mar 2020 by KiM

It has been a while since Jo first featured the work of L.A. and Nashville based designers Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward of Pierce & Ward. This talented duo is still going strong with maximalism and a flourish of colour, pattern and texture. Intriguing layers that make you stop and take in every inch.

According to the bio on New York designer Sasha Bikoff’s website, her aesthetic is 18th century French Rococo mixed with 1960s Space Age Modern, 1970s French Modernism and 1980s Italian Memphis Milano, which she executes with bright and colorful fabrics and rare antiques. Proof of this is her wildly eclectic and vintage filled apartment in Greenwich Village. It’s fun and flirty and I could move right in and have a blast.

A modern loft with classical decor

What do you get when you pair a modern white loft in Seville, Spain with a designer who has a passion for 17th to 19th century decor? An unexpected clash of styles that is quite dramatic. By Amaro Sánchez de Moya.

Colourful modern maximalism

Colourful modern maximalism with an eclectic vintage mash-up. Hubert Zandberg – one of my biggest design crushes. Located in London’s Notting Hill, Hubert Zandberg’s 850 square foot rental apartment was a temporary solution whilst he was between homes. Whilst no architectural works were undertaken, bold paint choices and the use of curtains to divide the space up created an atmosphere in which to showcase a curated selection of art, curiosities and furniture from Hubert’s extensive collection…a mix of curiosities from around the world including Paris, London, Berlin and Cape Town along with a mix of Brazilian, mid-century and Brutalist furniture all found a place and resulted in a harmonious space with a modernist maximalist aesthetic.
