I can’t make up my mind what I love more … the warm, caramel colour palette, the stunning spiral staircase, the stylish yet serene bathroom or the wonderful outdoor entertaining areas. Toluca Lake Residence by Los Angeles based Rios Clementi Hale Studios.
Is it a dream? A Tuscan farmhouse under a hot summer sun. Inside the rooms are starkly beautiful, a counterpoint to the blazing heat. A cool oasis that soothes the soul until, pow, a punch of pink in the modern, metal kitchen. Fabulous living in the beautiful medieval town of Capalbio by Rome-based designer Ilaria Miani.
It’s a little slice of heaven. A NYC loft with fabulous bones and an interior by design firm Sissy + Marley. Light floods in through arched windows while oak floors and exposed beams enhance the industrial feel. One moment it’s dramatic, the next serene but always a chic, always inspiring, family home. If luxury loft living in the Big Apple has been a dream of yours I suggest you move towards the light.
Is my blindfold title about the art on the wall or the run of cabinets across the window in the kitchen? Perhaps both. Unley Kitchen by Williams Burton Leopardi.
Today’s second offering is a designer’s own family home at the foot of Montmarte in Paris. A daring home where vintage references, personal creations and neoclassical French sculptures coexist. An elegant home but with a twist, a sense of drama, of cool. Pigalle by French superstar interior designer Tristan Auer.
