A designer’s home in a Swiss castle

Posted on Mon, 19 Nov 2018 by KiM

I know I am not the only one who dreams of living in a castle (France perhaps?), and I recently discovered a designer who is living my dream. lives in a Swiss castle built in 1725 called le château de Saint Saphorin sur Morges and it truly is a vision from my dreams. Given its appearance inside, I would say it is something Lisarge dreamt of and was able to bring to life. Books float in mid-air, a pendant light mimics a cloud, keys dangle from a crystal chandelier, pages torn from books flutter against walls….it is only missing a princess.

A renovated apartment in Paris

Posted on Wed, 7 Nov 2018 by KiM

This apartment, located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris (Les Invalides), had not been renovated for many decades. Much in this space was unsalvageable, but in the end designer  was able to maintain some of the jaw-dropping features – parquet floors, moldings, fireplaces. The kitchen became the heart of the home, with most of the appliances hidden from view, and a long bench built to emphasize and make use of the beautiful wall of windows. The result is a dreamy home for a family.

If any of you were questioning the use of lots of colour and pattern in your home, take a lesson from the Burke sisters. Anna and Caroline Burke of went wild in this Upper East Side duplex, and I adore every square inch. Moss green velvet walls, seagrass rugs, banquettes and more banquettes, murals, grasscloth, the glossiest of gloss walls, polka dots, stripes…….

Modern eclectic is the signature look of interior designer . An eye for one-of-a-kind antiques mixed with contemporary designs allows for the creation of a unique juxtaposition in her work. Jessica’s rooms begin with neutral base colors, organic shapes, and ethnic patterns and textures. She then cultivates a distinctive style by applying layers of mid-century lighting, bold sculptures and modern iconic furniture designs. This is a first-time feature on the blog for this New York designer, and I will be keeping my eye on her work for future posts. Love the drama of these spaces!


The Vaults

Posted on Sun, 21 Oct 2018 by KiM

This quite possibly is my favourite commercial space I have ever shared here. By Dublin-based . Inspired by fascinating Irish history, The Vaults Live is an innovative and theatrical large-scale tourist attraction located in the heart of Dublin City. The Vaults offers a unique and exhilarating tour and experience by taking the visitor on a journey throughout the most scandalous and exciting tales in a stunningly renovated original four-storey Victorian building. The experience includes stunning 360° sets, state of the art lighting, lavish costumes and special effects. We were ed by the client, The Vaults Live, to design a café parlour and retail space that visitors are brought into at the end of the one-hour experience.

The last set from the tour is with Molly Malone. We wanted to carry on a narrative from that experience and era, opting to create a lavish and indulgent parlour. With influence from the classic parlour room, we studied and researched Irish examples, wallpapers, furniture, fixtures and fittings, textiles and artwork from the Victorian era before seeking to merge the traditional with contrasting sleek, contemporary elements. We designed the suspended ceiling to house rabbit holes appearing to have grasses growing from them. We altered the roof light to create a tunnel effect to the sky and another to have inset mirror reflecting the Alice in Wonderland inspired chequered floor.
