This Hampstead, London townhouse designed by Jo Berryman, is overflowing with personality and I absolutely love it.
If Carmela Soprano lived in NW3 and not New Jersey, her kitchen would totally look like this
An excavated basement creates space for a sunken living room and dining platform
Witty vignettes, irreverent colour palettes and artworks add dramatic layers that evolve with the house

I wanted to share another to-die-for project by London design firm 2LG Studio. A 5 bed Arts & Crafts home given our modern twist with contemporary craft and bespoke elements. It was love at first sight and we wanted to maintain the strong heritage of the architecture, whilst bringing it up to date with our new take. We created a bespoke colourway of our floral, handprinted, wallpaper (designed in collaboration with Custhom) and our hand knotted rug for FloorStory. Giving a through-line on the ground floor – our personal take on the nature inspired prints of William Morris. Much of the original oak panelling, doors and pillars is left lovingly exposed, with the rest of the home given a neutral base to let the artworks and antique pieces shine. The lighting in the hallway, and throughout in brass and black metal, has a leaf motif that is entirely appropriate for the Arts & Crafts movement, yet adds a modern wit.
A bespoke brass and oak dining table, commissioned by us from british design brand, Novocastrian, with contemporary chairs by Ercol, becomes the centrepiece of the home.
The Liberty of London upholstery on the banquet seating giving another nod to the cultural heritage of the property.
Canadian House & Home magazine is a favourite of mine and has been for as long as I can remember, so I find their website is a wonderful source for fabulously designed Canadian homes. I thought I would share some that have caught my eye recently.

There’s nothing more that I love than creativity and uniqueness in interiors. It gets really tiring seeing the same thing over and over again (Instagram and Pinterest, I’m talking about you, and bohemian style specifically). I spotted this Olso apartment on The Cut and nearly had a stroke. Hello pink, green marble and brass kitchen of my dreams!!! This home could not be more one-of-a-kind. LOVE THAT.

I spotted this renovated apartment in Warsaw, Poland on AD Germany and had to share because I fell in love instantly. The warm brown and gold tones of most of the spaces are so yummy, and that herringbone floor! And that kitchen!!! Designed by Colombe. (Photos: Kasia Gatkowska)
