The Brussels home of designer Victoria-Maria Geyer is a bold combination of mid-century modern classics by the likes of Eero Saarinen, Joe Columbo, Alvar Aalto, Tobias Scalpa, and a gorgeous kitchen wrapped in Marmoreal. Graphic and bold artwork add to the drama.

A renovated apartment in Tel Aviv

Posted on Wed, 15 Jan 2020 by KiM

Sorana Kfir, a designer in Tel Aviv, reached out to us about this apartment she designed for her client, who took it over after her parents passed away. Sorana planned the new layout and decor of the space, and though it appears very modern in its transformation, there are pieces left from the homeowner’s past as well as some remnants of the old space reused as I’ll point out below. It’s now an eclectic and homey space.

The hutch above was lined with tiles from the old backsplash. Love that!

The vertical light feature at the end of the hallway to the bedrooms was a partition originally located at the entrance of the apartment and was reworked to serve a new purpose.

Embracing the light

When Melbourne’s The Stella Collective developed the interiors of a group of 8 townhouses in Elwood it was all about effortless, modern living. “The interiors inject a sexy and luxurious beach vibe into the spaces, while the glamour of the Art Deco design creates the perfect backdrop for residents seeking the ultimate in Melbourne bayside living.”

Atelier Armbuster is a design firm based in New York City that focuses on modernism and minimalism but also packs a punch. I wanted to share a couple of their projects with you. First up is a jaw-dropping loft-y townhouse and the second is a colourful home on the Upper East Side.

As you likely guessed from the teaser photo, this is another wildly creative and playful home design by 2LG StudioA double-fronted period property in South London that was in need of a personality injection to make it feel like home. The young professional newly-weds who live here love our use of colour and the juxtaposition of period features and contemporary design. Dark floors unite the spaces, grounding them and allowing us to be playful in our designs for this vibrant couple. Embossed wallpaper on the ceilings and under the dado rail in the hallway, strengthen the impact of period fireplace and coving, giving the perfect backdrop for eclectic elements of contemporary design in the lighting and furnishings.
