Danish fashion designer Malene Birger should have really started her career as an interior designer. Her 1905 Italian stone house on a hillside with views of Lake Como is decorated with the most incredible maximalist, eclectic style that is blowing my mind. Black, white, brown and the most glorious ochre/mustard/spicey yellow I have ever seen, and a divinely random mix of vintage finds from flea markets and auctions around the world.

It has been quite a while since we featured the work of London interior design studio Kia Designs so a big thanks to Miriam for sending over these photos of one their latest projects. This newly built 3 bedroom apartment in Fitzrovia is sophisticated and luxurious, yet comfortable. Such beautiful rich colours (that mustard/gold sofa!) and bold patterns (those curtains!) that add drama and warmth.

Eclectic and colourful, with an overtone of granny chic. Which makes this home absolutely to die for because I love all of those things together. This is such a mash-up of styles, and the colours are so beautiful I can’t stop staring at these photos and inspecting every intriguing inch. Congrats to Chloe Warner of design firm Redmond Aldrich for turning this San Francisco carriage home into something spectacular.

This 4 story Victorian townhouse in West London is calling out to all you maximalists and colour fanatics (and pottery collectors) out there. Overloading the senses? Too bright? Too much fun? You decide. Designed by Collett Zarzycki.
Finished your Christmas shopping and baking and wondering how to spend your Sunday afternoon? How about relaxing in a pink booth with a coffee at Pastel Rita in Montréal’s neighbourhood of Mile End. Designed by Appareil Architecture, this 1500 sq ft space is home to a café, artisan workshop and boutique. The colour scheme of green, pink and yellow is so warm and energetic. I’ll have to check this place out next time I’m vintage shopping on St. Laurent.
