This is another one of those scenarios where I apparently have been living under a rather large rock. How have I never come across this super talented design firm, based in Brooklyn NY, founded by an Anglo-French husband and wife team of ex-bankers? The New Design Project is Fanny Abbes and James Davison and their style rocks my world. Exhibit A – I LOVE THIS LOFT!!! A young couple’s urban residence is enriched with bursts of bold color and texture, transforming it into an elegant and modern apartment full of strong and vibrant flavors. Modern pieces have been combined with playful accents and ethnic touches to create a space that is eclectic but undeniably urban, and is cool and relaxed whilst feeling grown-up. The use of simple graphic patterns and vivid colors tones down the existing woodwork and prevents the space from feeling overly rustic. Design by Fanny Abbes, photos by Alan Gastelum.
Being an interior design firm must be a bit tough in a city where space is at a premium. in Him’s interior design is based in Hong Kong and clearly have to deal with very small spaces – and it doesn’t seem to hinder them one bit. Our interiors showcase signature designs that are understated yet sophisticated, straightforward, elegant and functional. Balance, light, space and color factor into every design, creating a timeless effect. Clean lines and simple but well-crafted furnishings, with an attention to texture and the highest quality materials are essentials to our designs.
I’m loving these spaces by Karine Simonot and Stéphanie Maigret of MOC (Maison, Objets et Chantiers). Some bold colour accents, some always fabulous Eames chairs and some amazing architecture for an eye-catching backdrop.
I recently stumbled upon the portfolio of Russian architect Igor Sirotov and was immediately taken with his designs. I can’t tell if these are computer generated or just exteme photoshopped but I don’t really care. This home is all about drama and open spaces and lots of concrete (a bit cold) and the coolest lounge pit in the living room (I may have a slight obsession with lounge pits). Many friends would be required to thoroughly enjoy this home, because it demands some serious partying.
