In true Sasha Bikoff fashion, she has taken something ordinary and made it extraordinary. Ok, this “Garden State Revival House” in Newark, New Jersey isn’t exactly ordinary but it’s sooooo traditional on the outside that you would never in a million years expect to see rooms painted pink, yellow, green, red, purple, blue, teal, lime. The insanity!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
Atelier Armbuster is a design firm based in New York City that focuses on modernism and minimalism but also packs a punch. I wanted to share a couple of their projects with you. First up is a jaw-dropping loft-y townhouse and the second is a colourful home on the Upper East Side.
As you likely guessed from the teaser photo, this is another wildly creative and playful home design by 2LG Studio. A double-fronted period property in South London that was in need of a personality injection to make it feel like home. The young professional newly-weds who live here love our use of colour and the juxtaposition of period features and contemporary design. Dark floors unite the spaces, grounding them and allowing us to be playful in our designs for this vibrant couple. Embossed wallpaper on the ceilings and under the dado rail in the hallway, strengthen the impact of period fireplace and coving, giving the perfect backdrop for eclectic elements of contemporary design in the lighting and furnishings.
Atelier Prototipi is a design studio based in Minsk, Belarus founded by architects Aleksey Klimov and Eugene Cherkas. Their take on modern design is whimsical and refreshing. Architecture as art.

Colourful modern maximalism with an eclectic vintage mash-up. Hubert Zandberg – one of my biggest design crushes. Located in London’s Notting Hill, Hubert Zandberg’s 850 square foot rental apartment was a temporary solution whilst he was between homes. Whilst no architectural works were undertaken, bold paint choices and the use of curtains to divide the space up created an atmosphere in which to showcase a curated selection of art, curiosities and furniture from Hubert’s extensive collection…a mix of curiosities from around the world including Paris, London, Berlin and Cape Town along with a mix of Brazilian, mid-century and Brutalist furniture all found a place and resulted in a harmonious space with a modernist maximalist aesthetic.
