Neoclassical in Madrid’s Barrio de las Letras where restraint meets drama. Clever use of white, split levels, mirror and bespoke storage elevate this bijou apartment from tired and pokey to classic with an edge. By Marta Goyanes and Cristina Espejo of Studio Espejo Goyanes


Stunning stone

“Good design is in the layers of detail and the intention behind those details. It evolves. I love walking into a home, time and time again, to discover something new — a story yet to be told.”

Rustic yet sophisticated, beautifully curated with a minimalist earthy colour palette it is texture that is the star. Rough stone, smooth to the touch paster, weathered wood and the slub of natural fibres. Shady Canyon Villa in Laguna Beach by Intimate Living Interiors.

The Mountain Brook, Birmingham home of architect James F. Carter takes you back in time, despite being a new build. The brick Georgian style exterior is quite a beauty, and the interior is filled with classic, traditional details which sets the stage for an impressive collection of antiques. It is a home he must cherish.

Sophisticated seaside living

“With incredible views towards the southern wild ocean and northern views to the enclosed and stunning pool lawn and flourishing vegetable garden, we wanted to create an ‘Australian’ villa in the landscape by the sea. Internally, we aspired to creating spaces rather than surface, creating atmosphere rather than rooms; creating both a generosity of spirit and serenity as a background for happy family life.”

As stunning as its rugged setting this sophisticated contemporary beach house is definitely no shack with its expansive views through large glass windows, open plan living and a sheltered oasis of a garden behind. Flinders House by Melbourne-based Susi Leeton.
