Sunday at a hotel in Paris

Posted on Sun, 24 Jan 2021 by KiM

A trip would be SO welcomed right about now. And staying at a hotel this fabulous and quirky and so full of energy in a city as vivacious as Paris would be an incredible adventure (though it may have since closed?). Le Montana designed by the extraordinary Vincent Darre.

Vincent Darré’s Paris office and showroom

Posted on Wed, 13 Jan 2021 by KiM

You may still be wrapping your brain around what is going on in my last post but I am smitten so I’m about to stir things up even more with what seems to be Vincent Darré‘s Paris office/showroom. The woodwork alone is making my heart skip a beat. Lawd half mursey!

Paris designer Vincent Darré is the king of surrealist, maximalist interiors. His creativity is limitless and the combination of his bold colour choices and exquisite furnishings with Parisian architecture makes for truly unique magical spaces. This is his apartment and it is wild!

On a previous occasion when I featured Barcelona-based interior designer María Lladó‘s work I wrote “Queen of the vignette, lover of chairs, doyenne of the eclectic. The home as theatre or is that theatre set?” That was back in 2014. Thankfully nothing has changed!

Beata Heuman’s London townhouse

Posted on Tue, 15 Dec 2020 by KiM

I have a handful of favourite designers that blow me away with every single space they touch, and I think I can go out on a limb and say Beata Heuman might be my #1. I am so intrigued by her creativity, her fealessness when it comes to colour and patterns (have you seen her marbleized velvet?! LOVE!) and her attention to detail. This is her family’s townhouse in Hammersmith, London and it’s everything you would expect from her – completely unexpected.
