has done wonders with this small apartment in London. Now I know this isn’t for everyone and many out there may think it’s too much crammed into such a small space but I think the result is really cozy, loved and lived in. I am especially smitten with the kitchen.
As much as I like an almost minimalist neutral room, a zen like space with rich textures and desaturated hues, deep down my heart belongs to colour and pattern and details. Now if I could just live in this Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse room by life would be just about perfect.
European glamour with its sparkly chandeliers, ornate gilded frames, carved wood furniture and stacks of old books is a style that always captivates me. Annie Brahler-Smith of Illinois-based design firm does this so very well. Rustic-luxe is such a beautiful thing.
This Beirut apartment is about as eclectic as you can get, and as a result is utterly fabulous. Home of interior architect . Built in the late 1920’s, in the heart of Abdel Wahab al Inglizi street, Ramy Boutros’ apartment is an embodiment of the artist’s soul, a living tableau showcasing his esthetic vision. The traditional architecture provides a high ceiling for a light-filled space and a majestic setting for the designer’s imagination to come out and play. RB’s wildest Oriental dreams appear on the walls, which showcase the most exquisite contemporary paintings as a loud testament to his eternal Love affair with Art. Here, every single item tells a captivating story, and they all speak in melodious harmony: from the Hervé van der straeten consoles and mirrors, to Hubert le Gall’s sofas and tables…. From the Oushak carpet to Nabil Nahass’ impressive “Palmiers”… the result is a refined amalgam of the designer’s personal favourite creators.
An amazing collection of artifacts and sculpture, an oh so chic apartment, a stunning Eiffel Tower view and not one but eight de rigueur Chandigarh Chairs by Pierre Jeanneret. Serious case of envy on my part. I wish I was the collector who lives in this stylish abode. Appartement Rivoli by .
