What is it with all Parisian designers consistently rocking my world?!?! Here is a new-to-me designer and snippets from several of his fabulous projects. He experiments with color, creates surprising melanges and masters the use of light. His experience at the French architecture studio of Dominique Perrault and his formative years at Polytechnic University of Milan, enabled him to achieve the perfect balance between lyricism and milanese sophistication, austerity and purity. Fabrizio Casiraghi redefines a free modernity that isn’t opposed to the past but rather incorporates historical references, a discrete ambiance and a taste for the intimate while also being daring with bold combinations and through the imaginative use of light and space. Casiraghi delights in overturning the codes of interior design with surprising contrasts: neon light with ancient mirrors, precious fabrics with industrial resin, and antique furniture with extravagant plant displays, always with a seductive harmony and an invitation to travel, sometimes calm, sometimes exotic.
This Edinburgh flat with its elegant Georgian lines is no shrinking violet. What could have been restrained and dare I say plain is instead alive with colour and pattern. Grey walls anchor the scheme allowing the designer to create a space that reflects the owners personality and style. The repeated use of pink and yellow must be so uplifting on a dreary Scottish day. Another great example of traditional with a twist.
I’m not sure what I love more about this Manhattan apartment – the hardwood floor, that glorious sofa in the perfect shade of pink, that insane marble or the copper kitchen cabinets. WOW!!!!! By .
It’s Saturday and in between coffee dates with friends, grocery shopping and a few hours pottering in the garden I’ve been real estate stalking as I tend to do. I love to see what is waiting behind a firmly closed door or a conservative facade. Like this Federation era townhouse in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton North just a stone’s throw from the city centre. All Edwardian propriety on the outside. All light, bright, modern family fun on the inside. Fuschia pink kitchen anyone? Link while it lasts.
It’s like I always say (except not too much lately), if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it looks great. Today’s workspace is a first for DTI. Part pastel Haussmannian, part post modernist homage meets contemporary bespoke, all with attention to medical precision it’s a plastic surgeon’s practice by French interior designers .
