A Spanish home in the mountains

If you’re a fan of green then you will appreciate this home in the mountains of Spain designed by . It looks very similar to Breakfast Room Green by Farrow & Ball. I love the idea of a green interior when surrounded by a green exterior. They appear to fade into each other and become one. Photos: Meritxell Arjalaguer

An industrial SoHo loft

Posted on Tue, 27 Nov 2018 by KiM

Dream loft alert!!!! Tucked away in Soho overlooking lower Manhattan’s skyline, a beautiful cast iron front is included with this landmark early 20th century building that predates steel’s rise to supremacy.  With bones to prove its authenticity, this loft is equipped with the original elevator opening directly into the living space appointed with original timber beams and columns, pine lentils above each window and refurbished radiators. We managed the 2,800 square foot full floor renovation that required serious know-how on original architecture and how to refurbish elements we felt were critical to the authenticity of Soho’s design ethos. We salvaged all the brick and timber by carefully chipping away inches of stucco, sandblasted and repainted all of the radiators in a deep space black, introduced new floors, but kept the signature 2 ¼” width, stripped and exposed the stairwell and elevator door to its true steel form, and opened the space to be an adaptable, open concept unit, down from 7 small rooms. Blackened steel compliments the warm natural materials throughout while all of the furnishings were layered in as the build unfolded, including some elements our client procured while traveling.

Congrats to designer for coming up with this spectacular decor and what might be the most creative colour combination. La Terraza del Casino in Madrid is where you want to spend a magical Sunday evening. (Can you imagine this for a wedding venue?! *GASP!*)

Eclectic in Madrid

I will never stop loving the eclectic juxtaposition of traditional and modern furnishings in a space. I had to share another project by (YNot) because that’s what this space in Madrid is all about. Bonus points for the striped foyer and the Flos 265 swing arm light.

A West Village townhouse

Posted on Fri, 23 Nov 2018 by KiM

Old school townhomes in New York are one of my favourite things. I feel like you could throw a few pieces of decrepit furniture in one of these homes you picked out of the trash and be like, “check out my sweet pad!” and I’d be all “it’s so beautiful!”. Yes, alot has to do with the absolutely breathtaking architectural details that if you’re lucky, have been lovingly cherished over the years. In the case of this home though, designer  nailed it with everything. The paint colours, furnishings, light fixtures…
