Whether you call it traditional with a twist, elegant eclectic or a just colourful family home this Gramercy Park apartment by interior designer CeCe Barfield is as joyful and exuberant as it is chic and stylish.
“Honouring this home’s Edwardian provenance was an exercise in restoration in the original sections and high-functioning layout changes to the rear to deliver a practical family HQ, with a very individual personality.”
A masterclass in colour and pattern, Glen Iris Edwardian by Melbourne-based interior designer Chelsea Hing.
This 110 m² apartment in São Paulo, Brazil was built in the 60’s and needed a revived, modern life. Pascali Semerdjian Architects opened up the living room by removing the kitchen, service entrance and a bedroom, and it now includes a library, media area and is open to the dining room and new kitchen. Tons of new storage has been added, and some exposed brick and peeling walls remind the owners of its history. I REALLY love how they separated the kitchen space by carrying the tile all the way around. the tall
This house designed by Pascali Semerdjian Architects is pretty sweet too!
When someone clearly understands the importance of “flow”. Our Baxter project was a careful modernization of a 1904 classic California bungalow. Ceramics, matte finishes, natural materials and uncovering of expansive views drove the design. A central artery of millwork allowed us to create generous storage where it had previously been lacking. A custom bookshelf climbs two stories to house an extensive literature collection. The kitchen and closets were designed for ease of use and hiding of clutter. The light fixtures were hand made by local ceramic artist Heather Levine. A fabulous project by Emily Farnham Architecture. (Built by Bronstruction, photographed by Trevor Smith)
“Where do you live?”

Now that would be an answer I’d love to give. I can just imagine being perched above one of my favourite cities and the space I have in mind would be very much like this loft by Bfs Design. Clean, straight lines, a little concrete soften by walls of warm wood, industrial with a mid century riff and houseplants perched to take over if given half a chance.
