Glossy dark floors, bright colourful furnishings, luxe marble bathrooms, whimsical artworks from accomplished modern art to kids school artwork and memorabilia picked up from travels, add to the feeling of warmth and familiarity.
I love those citrus Thonet chairs and that concrete topped island in the kitchen; but the house also comes with a 'conversation pit' complete with shag pile underfoot and a Jacobsen Egg chair in front of the fireplace. The owners loved the conversation pit at the Heide II house at the Heide Gallery and asked the designers to sit there so that they could capture the same modernist tone.
It's a wonderfully playful, and oh so chic home... I love it!
