What can I say about this apartment in Barcelona but WILL YOU LOOK AT THAT TILE FLOOR AND MOLDINGS!!! They are EVERYTHING! Space designed by Espacio en blanco.
I’m having heart palpitations over this dreamy loft updated by one of my favourite designers, Jessica Helgerson (senior designer of this project was Mira Eng-Goetz). With a beautiful pastel, almost Southwestern scheme going on, it’s sooooo soothing and easy on the eye. The result is a fresh, bright, happy, calm, space with a maximum amount of storage for a minimum amount of clutter. A giant built-in sofa allows our client to welcome large groups of friends, and a cozy “rainy day nook” doubles as a guest bedroom. The bedroom is entirely paneled, with storage behind all walls. A minimalist material palette and a display wall of storage and open nooks, allows our art-loving client to easily update and change the decor. (Photos: Aaron Leitz)
Loving the glam vibe mixed with dark greys/blacks in this Hollywood Hills home by Deidre Doherty. This fashion industry power couple came to us with a home to remodel in Hollywood Hills and a desire to marry their tastes for bold and wild, yet sophisticated and fine. Together, we created a glam concoction that’s a standout—even by the standards of the rock stars in their neighborhood. A leather-wrapped master closet soothes your senses in the morning. A snakeskin-wrapped powder room coaxes your wild side before evenings out. And robust elements like a copper kitchen hood, Calacatta marble, and a custom concrete fireplace are brash enough to feel edgy and yet solid enough to make you feel held and at home.
Kim’s in Mexico, lying in the sun, escaping the last of Canada’s brutal winter. It’s her annual “me” time but in her haste to fly south she forgot to plan a Sunday post. So here is the aptly called “A little time for me” post. Ayla Beauty designed by Redmond Aldrich Design.
I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG Studio. A 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.
A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home.
