When it comes to interiors, my taste ranges quite drastically. I love the ornate details in a restored Victorian home, and I also will completely fall in love with very simple, modern architecture. This modern take on a farm house with a Scandinavian vibe is refined, serene and subtly beautiful. By Kaemingk Design.
I say it time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it is somewhere incredibly stylish. Case in point, these refined corporate headquarters by Atlanta-based Susan Ferrier Interiors.
I love the mix of old and new, of antique with mid century classic, heavy Victorian mahogany furniture with Scandinavian influences, all wrapped up in a neutral colour palette with metallic accents. This bedroom, by Melbourne-based Sisällä, was part of Como By Design, a show house in a heritage listed South Yarra mansion (hence all changes had to be non invasive and reversible). My friends will tell you I have been going on and on for a couple of years now about “bringing back the brown”, of embracing the heavy dark wooden antique pieces we have been shunning for years. They laughed at me years ago when I told them the next big thing would be the 80s and they’re not laughing now. With Sisällä showing the way perhaps they’ll all be clamouring for a big old brown wardrobe soon.

The owners missed Los Angeles so interior designers Maria Lindgren & Adele Lonergan of Covet & Noir created a little bit of California for them in this London home. A clever mix of new and vintage furniture, art and accessories it is full of light with a neutral yet warm palette. Monochrome has never popped so much.
