I say it week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish … or in this case very, very pretty. Sonia Boyajian Studio & Showroom by Studio Shamshiri.

The owners of this apartment in Moscow wanted it to be bright and spacious and reflect their personalities and passion to travel. They must have very outgoing and eclectic personalities because WOW is this space ever both of those! Such vibrant colours, and unique details like the mural behind the tub, the rug made from used clothing and cushion from vintage jeans army tents and a Chinoiserie mural by the kitchen. I really admire designer Daria Vasilkova‘s creativity and attention to detail. (Love the glass wall sconces repeated throughout the apartment in rather random placements)
I’m real estate stalking the home of interior designer Anna Spiro in Birkdale here in Queensland. Known for her exuberant use of textiles, patterns and colour the colonial house is a showcase of her eclectic style while still maintaining its historical features like VJ walls, sash windows, tin roof and wide verandas. Surrounded by lush gardens it’s a quintessential Queenslander home. Link here while it lasts.
Christopher Kent of Studio CAK turned this apartment in the Palmolive building in downtown Chicago into a chic Parisian pad. A gut renovation, lots of ballsy colour choices (that kitchen OMGGGGG) and sculptural furnishings really add a WOW factor here. This is a “I would not touch a thing” sitch.

I love when a designer embraces the traditional and adds some personality and drama to keep it current. Some delightful eye candy from the portfolio of Edinburgh, Scotland designer Lisa Guest.
