Not everyone likes classic and retro interiors due to their rigor and seriousness. But the beauty of design is that in any style you can add a bit of irony and catchy memorable strokes. This is what happened with this apartment in New York. Here the elegant fireplace neighbors with super-bright paintings, a marble table with a screen with palm trees, and ancient portraits in gilt frames complement pineapples and pictures of circles. And do not forget, of course, about the skateboard in the shower. In general, your home can be anything: ironic, funny, strict, pompous – the main thing is that you like it!
This beautiful French country house is packed with various details in decor, and at first sight, it even seems that the interiors are slightly cluttered. But when you start to examine the spaces closer, the home starts to evoke only warm and pleasant feelings. Frames, dishes, animal figures and antiques – in this house you can feel the soul and heart of the owner. Indeed, only in France they can create such interiors!
Designer Joshua Greene even gave up space to live in the area of New York, that he always liked. He could easily purchase a more spacious apartment but chose this small flat in so loved Greenwich Village. There is enough furniture and accessories in this home for two apartments, but for the designer each thing matters – “I love things, but I do not like clutter,” he says. Beautiful home!
Architect Pavel Zheleznov wanted to live only in the center of Moscow to be closer to his parents. Architecture, location, view from the window played a key role in the search, so Pavel has chosen a famous Bolshoi Theater workers house, which was built in 1954 and has a gorgeous facade with magnificent stucco. Inside, however, nothing said about historical greatness and there was no point in leaving anything. Pavel tried to create his own historical architecture and fill the home with things that theoretically could have been left by the former owners. Beautiful design!
In the small town of Krasnogorsk, which is only 30 minutes from Moscow downtown, there is such a wonderful French oasis in Russia.

There are a lot of interesting corners here, each room has a lot of secrets and surprises. Enjoy!

Barbara Westbrook‘s home in Atlanta perfectly reflects her style and approach to design. First and foremost, it is love for everything antique and things with history – this cottage was recently restored, but it seems as if it stood here untouched for several centuries. In addition, Barabara loves books and art objects – there is a large library in her home, in addition, almost every room has books as decor. Great design for those who love timeless interiors!
The interiors of this Beverly Hills home are filled with beautiful combinations of old and new, bright and light, family relics and vintage finds from flea markets and antique shops. The owners wanted the home to feel very personal, but also stylish and laid-back. So they asked local designer Estee Stanley to create a dream space inspired by the European design. Very sincere home!

Transitional interiors can be described as a mix of traditional and modern approaches to design. But it tends more to traditional style if compared to modern classic. Amy Morris Interiors is a perfect example of transitional design and we are happy to share their portfolio with you.
