This historical colonial home designed by Nina Farmer is an absolutely beautiful example of how to use colours in a bit subtle but impactful ways, and going more bold in the spaces that can really handle the drama, and layering in unique ways. That library snug type space is on the cover of her new book ‘Timeless by Design‘ and timeless is definitely accurate. I can see these spaces 20 years ago or 20 years from now and being equally as cool as they are now. Photos: David Mitchell.
Seems a little far-fetched to take a traditional Georgian home, in Kansas City, and inject tropical and Oriental style, including many wallpapers and colours and patterned textiles in abundance, and have it look incredible. But Stephanie Woodmansee of Connecticut-based Henry & Co Design created magic in this home and there is so much to take in. Layer upon layer of fabulous decor. And that sunroom…*swoon*.

I am really smitten with the moody vibes of this château for sale in Lorient, France built in 1840. The description must have been created using ChatGPT because it’s a large paragraph that says virtually nothing. I can tell you this is 6,889 sq ft, 21 rooms that includes 9 bedrooms, with an absolutely terrible kitchen and oddly, not a single photo of the exterior. BIZARRE. I would have soooo much fun working with some of the existing elements of this and then filling it with much more appropriate antique furniture. For sale for €1,160,000 via Barnes International Realty.
Interior designer Charlotte Boundy found this white-walled 3 bedroom terrace in the West London suburb of Shepherd’s Bush a couple of years ago and slathered it in layers and some really pretty colours and wallpaper (F&B’s Joa’s White, London Stone, Reddish Brown, Setting Plaster, ‘Bengali’ by Braquenié) and turned it into the most relaxing, inviting and incredibly charming home. I am head over heels in love with this (and the dog, named Pig 🙂 ). Photos: Mark Anthony Fox
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.
