Quintessentially ‘Brooklyn’

As I anticipated in the end of the previous post today I show you the home of another Australian family. This home has a completely different style and is on another continent. The two-bedroom Brooklyn apartment of textile artist Maryanne Moodie and her partner Aaron Moodie (a designer for Etsy) is a truly beautiful, very relaxed space with lots of light and plants that make the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. Even though they have been living there for only two years, after Aaron got the opportunity from his employer, Etsy to relocate, the apartment has everything we call quintessentially ‘Brooklyn’.

Joseph Dirand’s High-End Home

Joseph Dirand is one of the most esteemed interior designers of our days. Given that his father, Jacques Dirand has been at least as revered in his field – interior photography – as his son, this French architect had developed, formed, polished his peerless style since childhood. In this post I would like to demonstrate how to pair luxury and minimalism at the highest level possible: The parisian apartment of Dirand is an incredibly high-end interior in which – without any exaggeration – every single piece of furniture and object is placed purposefully, every color and material is chosen thoughtfully – half-baked, random styling can never cross his door-step.

A Marvelous Californian Home

Today I brought you a gorgeous two-storey Spanish Colonial Revival-style house in Los Angeles to demonstrate how original architectural details can be in perfect harmony with contemporary furnishing and pop art. This beautiful home with a peculiar Tuscan/Spanish vibe consists of eight bedrooms, a pool, and a garden bursting with pudgy pomegranates, glossy avocados, a regal fig tree, wild strawberries and an organic vegetable patch complete with a selection of herbs. Its two owners – a couple with Canadian roots – completely renovated the house before moving in. They kept the original details but perked the interior up with pop art pieces, design classics,  and other contemporary furnishing hence creating an amazing home. Continue Reading

The ever-changing Stylish Home(s) of Hanne Berzant

Hanne and Søren Berzant’s home near Copenhagen has always been a perfect example of Nordic aesthetics. Their 280 m2 turn-of-the-century apartment was refined, simple yet luxorious, bright and airy, the dominant colours, textures and materials were all natural. All the rooms were tastefully decorated with a Scandinavian touch of course. She and her family has recently moved to a villa in the north of Copenhagen and even though you can feel it is not 100% ready yet, the designer’s excellent taste has already appeared in every corner. Hanne is a designer and owner of a gorgeous Danish brand By Nord so no surprise we can always find quite some strategically placed By Nord products around their house.
