This apartment may be small but it has everything a plant lover could need (aside from maybe a garden LOL). The yellow/green/chartreuse-y shades colours bring it all to life and add so much energy. It’s amazing what paint can do. And plants. Another project by Studio Paradisiartificiali.

At Rebecca’s

From soaring ceilings and flooding light in a  three level Parisian atelier to a small, cocoon like apartment in the 18th Arrondissement.

“Inspired by the Mediterranean, the theatrical architecture of this apartment is emphasized by natural materials: travertine, tadelakt and concrete. The alcove creates a bubble of softness and the pink waxed concrete floor soothes and sets the tone.”

A Manhattan pied-à-terre

Posted on Thu, 5 Dec 2019 by KiM

I am smitten with this Manhattan pied-à-terre that may be small in size but is loaded with sophistication. Designed by Kyle O’Donnell of Gramercy DesignA small penthouse apartment in a boutique cooperate was found in derelict condition, re-imagined as an elegant, bright, and functional space. We painstakingly replicated mouldings and period architecture in a strong restoration effort. The furnishings are intentionally sculptural and sparse with layered, iconic vintage and modern pieces. Chalky white walls and brass accents brighten the entertaining spaces while sleeping areas are calm and tonal. The terrace was landscaped by Jeffrey Erb Landscape Design, with the intention to feel like an extension of the living room.

I spotted this 45mapartment on the real estate site Lagerlings and wanted to share as this is such a telling example of what architectural details can do to trick the eye into believing a space is not as it as it appears. In this case tall ceilings and dramatic windows make the space appear larger. Even with the addition of a crittall-style bedroom separation it provides an air of grandeur. Gorgeous!!!

Art and antiques in a designer’s home

Posted on Thu, 26 Sep 2019 by KiM

I LOOOOVE THIS HOUSE!!! This art and antique-filled Victorian mansion block apartment in Barnes (U.K.) is the home of hám interiors’ Co-Founder Tom Cox. Tom employed clever spatial planning to create an airy and light home, bursting with personality from his eclectic private art collection. To create the illusion of space without having a fully open-plan layout, we fitted reclaimed Georgian glazed panelling between the kitchen and living room. We also designed and built bespoke storage utilising the height of the ceilings, and repurposed the guest bedroom to become a dressing room.
