We loved the first stage of this Armadale, Melbourne home by Simone Haag. Sensationally chic and fashion forward (here). The next area tackled by Simone and her team was the informal living space. Family friendly but still so design savvy just like its fashion director owner. Cesca chairs, Maralunga sofa, perfect!
I found several little gems among other projects by the talented Virginie and Nathalie Droulers so here are some extras for your viewing pleasure. (I’m completely smitten with the bedroom below)
Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield of Woodson & Rummerfield have been wowing Jo and I for years. I think we featured them for the first time about 11 years ago and haven’t since so it’s about damn time for a refresher! I love their bold, sassy style – classy and modern with quirky details for some funkiness. Exhibit A – that green stair runner with leopards. Not many homes can pull that off but how freaking fun is that?!
I came across the portfolio of interior designer Catherine Bedel recently and was intrigued by her bold use of colour and pattern in a modern way. Here are 2 apartments she designed. The first is in Luxembourg and the second is her own apartment in Saint Germain, Paris. Both are just really graphic, eye-popping and ballsy. So I now love her. And she makes me want to grab a paint brush, a huge canvas and some black paint and make some art.
Tip #1 for how to deal with winter (the kind of winter that involves below freezing temperatures and lots of snow): find yourself the coolest chalet to hang out it, and take in the views of the snow covered mountains while standing 3 inches from the fireplace. This place will do just fine. Designed by Laurence Simoncini.
