Terra-cotta, mustard, green and blue – such a beautiful array of colours. Since painting my dining room terra-cotta it’s one of my favourite wall colours and to walk into a home and immediately be surrounded by it….*sigh*. This entire home I just want to eat it up – especially the yellow kitchen. Not a single white wall in sight. And I’m not at all mad at that. Another to die for home designed by Reath Design.

Welcome to Majesty’s Pleasure, a beauty bar & cocktail lounge in Toronto. The concept was the dreamland of an it-girl, contemporary and feminine with an unapologetic use of colour and materiality. Layered chainette fringe drapes, a marble sink that transforms into a champagne well and DJ booth, and some neon make this space super fun and unique. Designed by Author. (Photos: Niamh Barry)
Designer Josh Greene knocked this project out of the park! This was a complete renovation of a full-floor apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It is loaded with elegance and class which in my humble opinion is hard to pull off when using lots of colours and patterns. I especially love the lacquered cobalt blue walls of the library with the wallpapered ceiling. So dramatic! And must give props to the acid green silk rug in the dining room – what a statement!

It only makes sense to name the home in which JM Barrie wrote Peter Pan The Peter Pan House. This West London townhouse is a Grade II*-listed property in which not one single detail (door handles included) can be changed without permission, and thus its quirks were reserved, and the owners requested the designer, Studio Ashby, utilize lots of colour and pattern. It’s traditional yet full of energy and whimsy. (Photos: Brotherton Lock)
I am completely smitten with this bold, pattern-happy traditional Spanish finca designed by Matthew Williamson. In 2018 Matthew converted this once derelict house built in 1920 into a luxurious, modern family home with 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, dining and lounge areas. Along with extensive garden and summer room renovations, the home has undergone a radical and stylish transformation.
