Having dressed everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Nicki Minaj, Lhuillier is best known as a red carpet regular for her signature sweeping gowns. So it was no surprise to us that when we came across her spectacularly decorated L.A. home we found the most warm, sophisticated and feminine aesthetic that’s completely in tune with Lhuillier’s design philosophy. Should I even mention that shoe collection!? No comment. I hope you enjoy the peek inside as much as we did.
Ice cold winter days like today have an ambiguous effect on me. On the one hand, I start dreaming of warmer, sunny spring days with colourful blooms. On the other hand, I keep thinking of Scandinavia, the cold climate and the sophisticated designs and interiors. So, I’ve spent the evening browsing through some of my favorite Scandinavian interiors magazines and I got hooked on this simple Scandinavian beauty in Danish Bolig Magasinet.
Lombard & Jack is the Melbourne-based interior design firm of Kath Lombard and Jackie Johnston that was established in only 2011. They’ve got some amazing projects under their belt already – each one with a dash of drama, a dab of glam, and a dollop of relaxed modernism. My favorite interiors of theirs has to be The Capitol Apartments, South Yarra which was done in collobration with company I work for Bates Smart.
Ok. here I go again with beautiful residential architecture by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects & OKHA Interiors. Views that go on forever anchored by the raw textures of concrete, rock and timber. Dramatic volumes defining open plan living areas. Bespoke furniture and high end finishes. A pool terrace that taunts the view and a master bedroom suite that rivals any 5 star resort. Sensual and sensational, definitely a statement home. You’ll find me on the terrace indulging in the view and some sunshine.
Ivanka Trump seems to epitomize uptown elegance. So, we weren’t surprised to find that her Park Avenue apartment, which is featured in Elle Decor’s October issue, is pretty, cool and composed, just like its owner. I had to check out this issue after a friend told me about it so here it is.
‘I want a home where kids can live happily and my husband can put his feet on the table or lie on the sofa watching TV and not be worried,’ she explains.
‘Nothing should be so precious that you can’t use it.’
When it comes to small apartments, functionality and comfort are the two main “issues” that need to be taken into account. The greatest challenge as a designer is to create (or at least give the feeling that there is) more space then it actually…is. The Australian Minosa Design Studio designed this small apartment of a family of five in Bondi Beach, Sydney, trying to solve the problem of space. The studio is specialized in stand-alone design concepts for contemporary bathrooms and kitchens, so the client’s request to adjust the small space and create a larger one, by adding an extra floor and creating a fun, functional and “stiffed” with appliances kitchen was pretty interesting and challenging.
The heart of the kitchen consists of a ten-seater table, luscious (and with an expendable part). It incorporated plenty of shelves that can be easily hidden. This was a very interesting approach towards the designers’ solution which I absolutly love. They chose to simply “hide” parts of the kitchen, under white and luscious sliding doors, in order to create more space.
This bright and breezy contemporary home by Levy:Chamizer Architects is located in Ramat Hasharon, on the central coast of Israel. This house is both sleek and refined, but the most impressive is the smoothness of the stucture of glass doors that brings lightness to the house.
No other words. No need really. Just a whole lotta beautiful interiors by Paris based photographer Nicolas Mathéus.
