Combine a wall of bright yellow framed windows, an expansive view of a leafy green canopy and abundant light and this apartment renovation by São Paulo based AR ARQUITETOS would brighten anyone’s day. A clever “wall of cubes” allows the light to penetrate further into the kitchen while providing much needed storage without heavy walls closing in the otherwise open plan public spaces. Living here would be sunshine yellow everyday!
Open, light filled, clean lined and family friendly. Warm wooden floors with accents of yolk yellow, red and Aegean blue that flash across the streamlined white canvas. A modern Australian beach house by interior design leaders Nexus Designs.
Hands up who hasn’t seen Sisley cosmetics Christine d’Ornano’s London home. Hands up who hasn’t drooled over the blue velvet doors and yellow chairs of “that” dining room/library. Hands up those who missed the m,any interiors magazine features including Elle Decor. The paintings, the OTT 70s floral fabric bedroom walls, the overstuffed sofas and modernist chairs. I love that house. So I was overjoyed to see Joanna Henderson‘s interpretation of the rooms. I think this talented British photographer’s images truly capture the everyday beauty, the family style, the livability of this fabulous home. Relaxed and casual but very, very special.
Here is another breathtaking project designed by interior designer Sarah Lavoine. It is pretty obvious that this Parisian apartment is the home of an art collector. Most people who design spaces for art collectors leave the walls white. NOT SARAH! She used teal, bright yellow and black – all perfectly suited for the spaces and the artwork they hold. Jaw-dropping results once again.
“Artistic Designs for living is about creativity, organization and management.”
To me it is all about how San Francisco interior designer Tineke Triggs and her design team use confident colour, sophisticated layering and careful consideration of the space. The first few photos are of the ADFL studio. The colour is “kapow”, the textures lush. Love the brick wall with the shelf for book display. May just have to use that in my own home. Don’t miss the Mill Valley family home after the jump. Earthy, casual, creative. A wonderful family space.
