Tour A Modern London Townhouse

Today we are going to tour a charming London townhouse. It’s a modern house with classical bones and a bit of British humor.

Entry

We like the grey and pearl color palette with a subtle pop of blue here in the entry. The feeling here is open, airy yet inviting and grounded thanks to a striking spiral staircase design, abundance of natural light, soft velvet fabric on the round settee and a traditional wood flooring.

Tour a California Coast Home with the Classic Blue-and-White Palette in a Modern Twist

The color of blue has been huge in the year of 2020. As matter of the fact, the color of blue has been always one of the most likeable colors by people globally. The magic often lies in how to play with pattern and texture to create a sophisticated and layered look in the sea of blue that is not only calm, soothing but also rich, warm and inviting, the way that we want our home to feel. Mark D. Sikies is one of the masters to often use blue-and-white palette to create a modern classic beauty in people’s life. Today we are going to tour his latest project for fashion designer Karen Kane . Mark Sikies re-imagined Karen’s dark and dated 1980 home in Pacific Palisades, California and transformed it into a relaxed and gracious Provençal estate with a vivid dance of blues and aged artisanal finishes. Here are some of our favorites.

Entry

Custom wrought-iron lanterns light the arched limestone entrance. From here, we are able to peek the sweeping staircase with a touch of blue.

Tour Designer Thom Filicia’s New Inviting Yet Sophisticated Home

 

Thom Filicia is best known for an Emmy Award–winning television personality on shows like the original 2003 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and 2018’s Get a Room with Carson & Thom, both on Bravo.  Eight years ago, Filicia decided to sell the SoHo apartment where he had resided for a decade and move to a neighborhood with a bit more breathing room.  A floor-through unit in a modern building designed by the South African architect Lindy Roy caught his eye, thanks to a layout with a strong separation between social and personal spaces.  After spending four months in construction redoing floors, bathrooms, lights, and counters, Filicia set about decorating the 1,800-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment. The rooms include a mix of his own pieces, both from his Thom Filicia Home Collection and his to-the-trade New York showroom Sedgwick & Brattle, along with vintage furnishings and the artwork he has collected over the years. “I’m a single guy, so I wanted it to be timely and timeless, sophisticated yet inviting,” he explains, adding that he loves to entertain.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

Home Tour—an Elegantly Layered New York Apartment

 

In the middle of the week, we all look for a little bit inspiration to carry on. We came across designer Lilse McKenna’ New York apartment and truly amazed by how she re-arranged the overall layout to maximize storage while still keeping a high style.  Let’s take a look at her NYC apartment home together.

1. A balanced color palette.

03 Living Room_Lilse Mckenna lead

The red vintage velvet sofa is aN original piece. We are glad  that Lilse still keeps the way it is. And she balanced the bright red color with a lot of blue and white in this room. By doing so, she is not only able to  make the room feel bright and airy, but also able to showcase the fabulous artwork on the wall and patterned fabric on the throw pillows, lamp shades and ottoman cover as well.

2. Style her mantle with books.
