The apartment we are showing you today is located in the Salamanca neighborhood of Madrid. In 2007, the owners of this beautiful home decided they needed to renovate it and commissioned Ventura Studio for the project. The home spreads on 200 square meters and the concept is open plan. Bright and spacious, this apartment is an oasis of good style and modern furnishings.
There is one word that we can use to describe this home – color. Situated in North Sydney, Australia, the home of designer Rachel Castle /which she shares with her husband and two kids/ is the true epitome of whimsy – vibrant and fun, it is exactly what we can expect of a designer and an artist’s living space.
Spread over 250 sqm the house is full of light thanks to the huge top to bottom custom made windows which open to a garden that looks like part of the inside living space. Vibrant colors, bright and cheerful furnishings, and artwork all over transform the home into a fun and happy place to live in. Not coincidentally, it is known as the sunshine home in the art and design circles of Sydney.
The focal point is no doubt the huge living/ dining/ kitchen space with a skylight on top. The black framed windows add to the home’s spaciousness bringing light in and also giving an amazing contrast to the various colors around.
The kitchen island separates the living and cooking areas and matches the equally gorgeous wooden floors making the flow to the rest of the space flawless.
The pink sofa is what catches your eyes immediately – it is designed by Rachel Castle herself for her eponymous collection.
Large paintings are hung all over – from the living space and the bedroom to the kids’ rooms – which results in a house interior that truly communicates the passion and the creativity of the family.
As the designer says – she never throws out anything she loves – and her home is full of art and objects she collected over the years from everywhere – surrounding herself with favorite things makes the space unique, artsy and a joy to live in.
Nestled in the luscious and majestic valleys surrounding Rio de Janeiro, there is an amazing farmhouse compound – the music legend Lenny Kravitz’s home. Ten years ago he was scheduled to fly back from Brazil to the United States after a concert when one of his friends mentioned that there is an amazing place he definitely needs to visit. Although it was their last night in Rio, the singer decided he would very much like to see it. He didn’t leave for 6 months – that is how much he liked what he saw. Two years later Lenny Kravitz returned to purchase the land with all the buildings on it. Read more
