Kicking things up a notch with some royal blue and brass accents in this Kyiv, Ukraine apartment by . The apartment located on the fifth floor of a pre-revolutionary period (the early 20th century) apartment building in the heart of Kyiv was designed by Emil Dervish for his friend Marc Raymond Wilkins. The apartment features high ceilings (3.7m) and unusual shape. The name of the apartment Birdsnest is explained by the fact that it is located on the top floor in a tower with a cone-shaped roof. The finishing of the apartment focuses on a creating a cozy atmosphere − warm wood textures, ivory plaster walls, and ceiling made of old concrete blocks, brass elements. The pieces of furniture and such details as window and door handles were specially designed for this project, sofa and armchairs were transported from Berlin. The kitchen sink used to belong to Marc’s great-grandfather, and the piano used to belong to his mother. The apartment is decorated with a range of vintage pieces, unique prints, and paintings, for example, the portrait of a man in the bedroom is a painting by the owner’s father.
I spotted this apartment on and wanted to share because it is unique and gorgeous, and has a European vibe I am always a fan of. Though admittedly, I hate blue (especially this shade) in interiors. Not sure why, I just can’t seem to get on board. Nevertheless this St. Petersburg gem located in a historic 1912 building has some really beautiful features, and was designed by Polina Gerasimova and Svetlana Kalimanova of Ruger Design. Happy long May 2-4 weekend my fellow Canadians!
I spotted his beauty of an apartment on and had to share because it’s not your typical Swedish style of white and pastels. A bit of rust/orange, some black and brass, a bit of mid-century modern, and some bold artwork makes this space unique.
A big thanks to Adam for sending us a to this absolutely breathtaking newly built home in Toronto that is for sale. The finishes and attention to detail in this home are really incredible.
What’s the result when a new build in an unbeatable location is meticulously designed from the ground up, selecting only the finest finishes, such as a striking floating staircase, an ingenious “hidden” kitchen and ultra-modern bifold doors that transform the entire living space into an indoor-outdoor paradise in an instant? A timeless neoclassical design with a spectacular blend of Parisian charm and modern luxury that inspires you to live out your best life. Step into this sophisticated, bright space that reflects all of the elegance of a French chateau; with grandeur-scale, crown-topped 11-foot ceilings and a breathtaking master suite floor with a large terrace overlooking Toronto’s skyline.
Elegant and a bit edgy is a mix that always captures my heart and eyeballs. My eyeballs almost popped out of my head when I saw this new London location home available through . Marble, brass and crystal chandeliers is a combination that you can never go wrong with. NEVER!
