Brazilian designer Sig Bergamin is taking maximalism to a place where colour is IN YOUR FACE and art is KEY and patterns are BOLD and abundant. This cottage he designed has an energy that is inimitable.
This apartment was given a makeover with bold colour combinations and lots of drama care of Moscow’s The Art Group by Daria Vasilkova. Customers did not want to start from scratch, it was only necessary to add the fresh energy to the old walls. We were to make it full of vibrance, free and open, but meaningful and welcoming at the same time. This is a space for a family of young, beautiful, creative people with children. Ethnic motifs, antiques, natural wood, innovative, offbeat ideas in furniture design, whimsical lamps – everything turned out to be close in spirit to our customers.?
I am always in awe of the meticulousness and playfulness of design firm?Kingston Lafferty Design and this restaurant in Dublin is no exception.?Tasked with the challenge to transform an empty shell retail unit into a restaurant, café and takeaway with a new mezzanine kitchen and bar, KLD were appointed to carry out the interior architecture and design for new Cinnamon restaurant.?KLD designed all the light fixtures, reminiscent of oversized lollipops, to the wall cladding, tabletops and built in seating to maintain a bold and toy-like feel throughout. “We wanted to create a light-hearted and childlike space with an element of escapism.”?Soft pastels are heightened with textural changes from soft leathers, glistening tiles and high gloss lacquered surfaces. The colour palette was kept deliberately simple and repetitive so that it visually connects. Mirror was incorporated in various ways to echo the full height dramatic glazing and bring in the natural light.

Christopher Kent of Studio CAK turned this apartment in the Palmolive building in downtown Chicago into a chic Parisian pad. A gut renovation, lots of ballsy colour choices (that kitchen OMGGGGG) and sculptural furnishings really add a WOW factor here. This is a “I would not touch a thing” sitch.
