There are a small handful of accounts on Instagram that I anxiously await new photos from, and Mexico-based interior decorator Dirk Jan Kinet is at the top of the list. His love of antiques and all things vintage (he has a shop in San Miguel de Allende that I am dying to visit but sadly it’s too far away from Puerto Vallarta where I go each winter and will be next month), his incredible talent at mixing bold colours and patterns always takes my breath away. Trust me when I say his account is a must-follow. Since it has been a while since I have featured his work (here and here), he kindly sent me over some pics and the rest I scoured the interwebs for (most from this article, photographed by Ana Hop). Enjoy!
I am one of Damian and Britt Zunino of Studio DB‘s biggest fans. Their projects always completely win me over with their attention to detail (hello glossy ceiling in the living room – my next house I want to do this in every room), and their love of pattern and colour. Every single room in this Park Avenue residence is a stunner. Sophisticated yet liveable. (Photos: Matthew Williams)

Eclectic and colourful, with an overtone of granny chic. Which makes this home absolutely to die for because I love all of those things together. This is such a mash-up of styles, and the colours are so beautiful I can’t stop staring at these photos and inspecting every intriguing inch. Congrats to Chloe Warner of design firm Redmond Aldrich for turning this San Francisco carriage home into something spectacular.

Bold and colourful patterns in wallpapers, curtains, pillows and artwork are set against a neutral backdrop in this lively and inviting modern Tudor home designed by Dallas-based Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25. It is really inspirational to see a designer take a fairly ordinary home and have alot of fun with it.
