There is so much drama when using dark colours in a space. Add in some touches of bold shades of mustard and blue and it’s a feast for the eyes. It has been a while since we featured the work or Parisian interior designer Marianne Evennou and I’m delighted to share more of her unique take on interiors.
When new owners purchased this 1842 four room Georgian cottage in Tasmania it was almost a ruin. Carefully it was restored, layers of unnecessary additions removed returning it to its subtle simplicity. But oh what stylish simplicity.
“The generations of families who previously occupied this house over two centuries were blacksmiths, carpenters and pastoralists. Their memory is recast in the new work through a series of finely crafted insertions, which provide contemporary amenity and create a delicate scaffold to the rooms.”

A lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend yada, yada, yada. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. Coppin Street Studio by Pitch AD. Stay safe.
“Located in the bustling neighborhood of the 6th district in Vienna, this 300sqm apartment is a place of retreat for a well-travelled design aficionado. The apartment is divided in two units with seamless connection through wooden sliding doors. High ceilings and big windows create an overall spacious feel. The bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining space is the center of the apartment where friends come together for long dinners and endless talks. A composition of custom-made interiors, wooden furniture, rough linen and carpets, selected mid-century vintage finds and unique objects complement the general monochrome and understated design concept.”
With its restrained palette and casual sophistication this carefully curated home is indeed no ordinary apartment. A signature design by Annabelle Kutucu.

More liveable glamour by the talented Lisa Gilmore, but this time it is art deco mixed with arts and crafts. William Morris wallpaper pairs with Frank Lloyd Wright fabric in the study. Some leopard print chairs add some extra ZING in the living room. Random – just how I like my interiors.
