An 1840 Gothic Revival home in Germantown, NY

Posted on Wed, 3 Apr 2024 by KiM

Oh what I would do to get my hands on a home like this! Gothic revival architecture – yes please! A fireplace in the kitchen – yes please! A sunroom (with an exterior that looks like a little cottage) – yes please! Timelessly classic traditional design with a touch of modernity – yes please! Design: L.B. Copeland; Architecture: Bohl Architects; Photos: Adam Kane Macchia

The power of original architecture

Posted on Thu, 28 Mar 2024 by KiM

Vanguard Flower – A 90 square meters apartment in a tenement house dating back to the beginning of the 20th century located near the beach. Renovation works involved a complete reconstruction along with the restoration of the original window woodwork in order to restore the ambiance of a pre-war interior. Beautiful patterns from Pierre Frey and Braquenié collections are exposed in all of the rooms. The bedroom doors are decorated with a Ralph Lauren wallpaper. Furniture is upholstered and wooden furniture systems are tailor-made according to the original design.
The architectural details of this home are absolutely stunning!!! Hooray again to Karolina Rochman-Drohomirecka for honouring the original details in this home and ensuring they were maintained and for playing off of the rounded shapes in most of the apartment to really make them a focal point.

Elegant bohemian

Posted on Tue, 12 Mar 2024 by KiM

My love of eclectic interiors, where old meets older and newer in an unconventional way, never waivers. (As I sit here at my desk and look to my left, there’s a reproduction 1946 George Nelson freeform sofa with 1800’s art and a 2010 Flos Aim pendant hanging over it). The Saint Paul, Minnesota home of designer Jacqueline Fortier is as eclectic as they come, in an elegant bohemian, Parisian apartment sort of way and I think it’s absolutely stunning.

Simple and hip

“A modest and robust brick addition to an single-fronted weatherboard house, Brunswick house is a home for a young family. The extension is pragmatic and simple with the focus being on the quality of natural light and materiality within a dynamic space. The site slopes away to the rear, north facing backyard, providing an opportunity to step down and also bring the ceiling line up to both bring in light and demarcate spaces in the open plan kitchen, dining and living area.”

Modest it may be but this simple extension is full of contemporary cool. Solid and effective, hip and stylish. Brunswick House by Olaver Architecture.
