A monochrome simplicity

Posted on Wed, 31 Jan 2024 by midcenturyjo

There is something about simplicity. The luxury of surrounding yourself with a heavily curated collection of the objects that you love. Neutral palette but warmed by the golden glow of timber anchored by the textures of found objects and earthy art. Brooklyn apartment (the home of sculptor/designer Simone Bodmer Turner) by Olivia Stutz Design.

This is the South Kensington apartment of couture and interior designer Tomasz Starzewski. I am overwhelmingly smitten and could look at these photos for hours trying to soak in all of those incredible layers. Why put one small table next to your sofa when you could put three? That is not meant to be sarcastic at all as I’d need one for my magazine, one for my cup of tea and one for the incense or candle I’d be burning. This folks, is maximalism at its finest.

This apartment in the historic Cobble Hill neighorhood belongs to partner, Erin Fearins and has been carefully renovated to include custom millwork and an expertly layered mix of vintage furniture pieces and carefully curated art and antiques.
Erin of Studio FSW decked out her family’s apartment with layers of vintage and antique finds, very bold graphic wallpapers and fabrics and daring colour choices. A designer after my own heart. (Photos: Lesley Unruh).

Perfectly imperfect

Perfectly imperfect, disordered to perfection, expertly curated and delightfully haphazard… this is absolutely wonderful Kensington flat of Swiss decorator Christophe Gollut. Via Cabana Magazine, photos by Emma Lewis.
