Blending history and Mexican artisan tradition with contemporary design, Ignacia Guest House is a dazzling, multifaceted jewel with its sunset colours and bespoke statenment furniture. The boutique hotel in the heart of Mexico City’s hip Colonia Roma district is the creation of interior designer Andrés Gutiérrez including those amazing cabinets and tables. Time to plan a holiday perhaps?
This bright and unexpected reimagining of a London pied-à-terre by Studio Peake is a “playful blending of opposites and an interplay between old and new – a dash of unexpected colour or detailing; that element of surprise.” Think pattern and texture, a comfortable overcrowding of furniture, books and art, personality and fun.
I have never seen a more vivacious, flamboyant, vivid and spirited home than that of creative consultant Max Hurd in collaboration with designer Benedict Foley. This Victorian terrace house in London could not be more fun and energizing. The attention to detail and the somewhat random colours used throughout his home….someone with a home like this must have such a wonderful outlook on life. I want to be his friend.

A computer game designer asked Scotland-based Studio Sam Buckley to “create a room that makes people say ‘Wow’ upon seeing the space” and Sam 150% delivered!!! Really creative colours (today’s theme) and patterns join forces to solidify the deal. His client must be the envy of all their friends.

“This kitchen is set in the Clay Retreat, a newly built, low-carbon, family home located in the New Forest and designed by local architects PAD Studio. One of our first challenges was incorporating enough storage for the family, whilst keeping the number of cupboards to a minimum so we designed tall cabinetry on one side that incorporates their coffee kit and a larder to house the family’s consumables. With all appliances on the back run there’s a generous worktop area for food prep on the island, PAD had a vision for this custom piece that includes waterfall edged Caesarstone worktops. Palette-wise, this space is all about soft, tactile, and natural finishes. PAD’s interior scheme includes clay render walls, timber battening, a balustrade hand wrapped in sisal rope and a poured concrete floor.”
A fabulous pop of pink in an eco friendly home. Perfect! New Forest Kitchen by Pluck.
