Shades of pink and purple – aubergine and dusty rose – can be found throughout the apartment of Daniele Daminelli of Studio2046 that he shares with his wife and 2 children. Located in an over 100 year old building in Treviglio, Northern Italy, each room is one of these moody shades and then mixed with other colours found in an eclectic assortment of rugs, chairs and sofas. I found a few features of this gorgeous apartment while googling and it is very interesting to see the different iterations that have taken place.

I fell in love with this flat in Barcelona with its great layout and use of colour that’s not overpowering. The family of four wanted light and colour in the space, and have it filled with music and art. Such a fun, timeless space. Put some pink and marble in a bathroom and I’m going to be all over that.

Still scrolling the streets of Daylesford and I’ve found another modern take on a country getaway. This rural retreat has a signature style with David Bromley artworks as well as rooms covered with his wallpaper. It’s bright and stylish mix of vintage and modern, fun and quirky. Link here while it lasts.
Who would have thought that rich green cabinetry and a pretty in pink marble would form the basis of a knock out kitchen? Add a wall of mirror, textured tile and brass accents and you might be forgiven for thinking that the whole thing a tad OTT but no! It’s glamourous and practical, fun and functional. Love it!

I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG Studio. A 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.
A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home.
