Small doesn’t have to mean insignificant and boring. Make every piece count and a small space can feel larger than life. From white shell, to layered urban retreat. A complete redesign and renovation of this one bed London apartment, creating a new start for the homeowner. A layered scheme of pale wood, natural stone and linen with touches of brass and laquered wood. The palette is a soft neutral base (perfect for our client) with a powerful deep burgundy top note that adds sensuality. Bespoke joinery creates ample storage with black metal details throughout that ground the whole space. We opened up all the doorways to full ceiling height and connected the kitchen to the space with a new opening. Interior design by 2LG Studio.
I am head over heels in love with the landscape design of this California home. The bold orange/red painted exterior accents really make everything pop and add a modern touch. Lush gardens hug this 1905 national historic register home in Palo Alto’s Professorville neighborhood. Vibrant homeowners wanted to create a landscape that engaged the neighborhood and featured layered gardens with a Bay Area sensibility. The landscape is now defined by a series of outdoor “rooms”, with flexibility for intimate family gatherings and large social events. Water-use is concentrated in the public facing areas of the site. Highlights include custom recirculating water features, hand-made clinker brick walls, a charming vegetable garden with custom chicken coop and mature perimeter plantings. Designed by Boxleaf Design.
In true Sasha Bikoff fashion, she has taken something ordinary and made it extraordinary. Ok, this “Garden State Revival House” in Newark, New Jersey isn’t exactly ordinary but it’s sooooo traditional on the outside that you would never in a million years expect to see rooms painted pink, yellow, green, red, purple, blue, teal, lime. The insanity!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
For an architecture and design firm that typically only creates spaces in black, white and grey, this 80 sq m apartment in Moscow was quite a departure. A.T.Ø (Architecture Technology Objects) Studio went a little crazy with red, pink, green and blue in this project and I’m digging the outcome. It is as bold as they come, and alot of fun.
There are a few designers out there that never cease to amaze me with every single project they get their hands on. London designer Beata Heuman is at the top of the list. Her quirky, eclectic, completely unpredictable style that marries some of the most random colours and patterns together means you will have never seen this anywhere else and you will never see it duplicated. Though I want to pluck every space from her portfolio and stick it in my home. This Paddington pied à terre is a prime example.
