I hope to one day find myself with a home that needs serious renovations, where I make decisions on what original details should stay and mix it with clean lines of modern architecture. This apartment in the Literary Quarter of Madrid has beautiful textured walls and beams maintained from the original 1900 structure and it really makes the space that much more unique and intriguing.

Chicago interior designer Crystal Blackshaw turned this drab older home into an exuberant, playful, approachable space with the help of some paint, tile, wallpaper, bamboo blinds and some warm and graphic fabrics. What a stunner!
I can’t get enough of Brock Forsblom‘s daringly vibrant and maximalist style so I am sharing a couple of other projects from his portfolio. This first one is an Upper West Side garden apartment and the second is a West Side pied-à-terre. Fabulous colours. (Photos: Annie Schlechter)
If you think your home lacks a certain whimsical or creative energy, then this project by Alberto Villalobos is packed full of creative ideas that are a lot of fun and pack a punch. It starts with ceramic dogs flanking the front door. Then a random swirl pattern painted on the foyer floor. A planter of ferns built under a window. An ombre stair runner. A green and gold kitchen. A patchwork terrazzo floor. A monochromatic orange office. A dramatic black and brass bathroom. Yesssssssss to all of these elements.
