Designer Claudio Bitdinger-Gassen chose for this French apartment of 70 sqm unexpectedly bold color scheme: mostly dark shades, both in the main living room and in the only bedroom. Vintage leather sofa and black fireplace added even more drama to the interior. Not without the colorful splashes in decor: a bright carpet in the living room, pillows, books. Of course, not everyone would like to live in this apartment, but the design is definitely worth seeing!
The design of this luxury townhouse in a prestigious area of London has absorbed the best traditions of royal houses and modern design trends. A tribute to the popular loft style can be found in the lower living room, where there is a whole wall of exposed brick. The picture with the image of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol (I have no doubt that this is an original work) steeply takes out of the ordinary to the World of magic and art. Tribute to royal blood is given here in the design of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Classic calming interiors, space and scale, light and the highest quality of materials – all in light colors (egg shell, elephant bone, milk). Large sofas and armchairs complement the living rooms, here you can place an entire royal family. Elizabeth would definitely like it!
A small but cozy private terrace was the first thing that caught the eyes of the future owners Martha and her daughter Ines and what made them fall in love with this apartment. The home could not offer a big space, but the terrace and the opportunity to swim in the sun’s rays were simply subdued. With the help of classical furniture, vintage details, and a delicate pastel palette, this flat became a lovely girls’ dwelling.
We have already seen the home of Barbara Westbrook, the founder of Westbrook Interiors, and now we want to show some of her magnificent projects. The designer does not pursue modern and glamour trends but rather tries to create interiors that do not fade with time, interiors without an expiration date. These space are filled with elegant classic forms, aged furniture, antiques and vintage decor. Enjoy!
In the distant 1957, the former US president Ronald Reagan purchased a magnificent plot of land with spectacular views in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and a few years later a house was erected, which at that time was one of the most modern and advanced. When the current owners bought the villa 3 years ago, it was in an abandoned state, but after a smart reconstruction the house returned to its former glory, and its value increased almost 10 times (now it is sold for $33M!). Of course, the Reagan family has not lived here for a long time, but the presidential scope is felt in everything. Enjoy watching!
It’s hard to believe that doors can be decisive and the most important element of the decoration. But in this Swedish apartment, it is true – the whole design concept is built on the gorgeous massive wooden doors of a natural shade that are a highlight of the home and the thing everyone pays attention to when first see the interior. Simply awesome!
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 founders of The Iron Gate studio believe that an interior should not feel decorated. Rather, a space should give the impression that you have already been here many times and that the house was built many years ago. Their beautiful vision is embodied in light and airy interiors, filled with elegant vintage furniture and light pastel tones. Looks very relaxing!
Men do not really like interiors in pastel tones with cozy little things, they’d rather live in dark deep colors and things with history. And this does not mean masculine interiors can not be stylish and elegant. This townhouse in London is both bold and stylish. Although furniture and decor are brutal here (portraits of bulldogs, a bar cart, retro car models, rocker themed details), interiors are full of nobleness and style. And yes, this is the blackest kitchen that you have ever seen. Truly a man’s home!
Only big designers can create a really timeless interior, that everyone will easily believe it was built ages ago. Westbrook Interiors designs such kind of spaces: true, elegant, with a touch of antiquity and with a lot of heart. We are happy to share one of them with you – gorgeous Belgian-style home in Atlanta.
