Today we bring you a little guide on the best interior design projects out there; what they are, what makes them special, and, most importantly, who created them!
Martyn Lawrence Bullard
Martyn Lawrence Bullard is great at bringing unexpected elements to the same place. This bathroom design is one of our favourites from all of his work.
This phenomenal bathroom is located in Villa Luna, and the key element is the pop of colour that contrasts with the neutral furniture. Still, orange is not the only statement here as we can’t stop admiring the gorgeous cabinets which are fully covered in a gorgeous and classic, Missoni fabric.
The Rockwell’s Group work for this luxury hotel is astonishing and couldn’t stop ourselves from giving a special highlight to the bedrooms. First off, the hotel comprises a total of 349 rooms that the duo has set up with botanically inspired designs as well as artful interiors. Not only that, they also made sure to incorporate plenty of whimsical details while also paying close attention to space and functionality.
The bedroom’s warm and open atmosphere is the result of the use of a muted colour palette which includes – wood-like floors, army-green mosaic tile, as well as striped drapes. Each room also features custom-designed and multipurpose furniture designs that also elevate the rooms to maximum comfort.
According to Nate Berkus, the aim is always to express one’s style and personal preferences – from colours to materials, textures and accessories – for the designer, important is to never settle down in the sense of just doing things without a purpose or care. Even though it may be only a bathroom, this space belongs to your home and it should still reflect your own style and ideas.
In the designer’s own words – “Whether it’s mixing metals, introducing a wild wallpaper, or incorporating vintage lighting or mirrors with flair, the key is to go beyond the basic.”
What is his trick for designing such exquisite bathrooms, you aks? – “Well, not a secret so much as it is a frame of mind: the best bathrooms are the ones that are decorated like any other space in your home.”
As a regular guest of leading publications such as – Architectural Digest, Dwell, The New York Times Magazine, Wallpaper, Interior Design, and Architectural Record – Marmol Radziner is a must cover whenever showcasing the best design projects of the moment.
This time the project we would like to bring to your attention is the one developed in partnership with Lenny Kravitz. Yes, you hear it well! – The legendary music icon Lenny Kravitz, founded Kravitz Design Inc., a design company focusing on residential, commercial, and product design.
The company’s team encompasses a diverse group of creative professionals that have executed a variety of projects throughout the world, and this one in collaboration with Marmol Radziner is not just another one.
The house division within this project that we would like to highlight is the bedroom. The pre-crafted, one-bedroom home was smartly considered to maximize the use of its compact footprint. The colour scheme is neutral and uncompromising which conveys it with a lovely sense of eternal elegance.
The old Hollywood elite’s favourite, Casa del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica, has been revived with modern-day amenities and some luxurious upgrades courtesy of celebrity designer Michael S. Smith.
We especially loved the work done in the rooms; the multi-level Penthouse suites which are reminiscent of Italian seaside villas and feature eclectic Venetian-designed furnishings, a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining area, and either one, two, or three bedrooms with separate sitting areas, giving guests the feeling they are in their own private, beachfront pied-a-terre.
Not only that, but the rooms also feature custom designed alder and walnut furnishings throughout, with particular attention to the use of a variety of hues and textures. You will also be able to find ebony finished pieces that contrast with the light blue walls, as well as furniture with caning, or raffia wallpapered bookcases.
The centrepiece is a rich walnut four-poster bed accented with luxurious white linens, lush chenille throws, and a bisque-coloured ceramic garden stool located at its base. Other gorgeous details include; an etched and hand-silvered mirror, a selection of thoughtfully chosen novels, and whimsical artefacts reflective of the property’s beach location, such as coral and vintage maps of downtown Santa Monica, inspired by an original print dating back to the 1930s.
The bathrooms included in the rooms also just as luxurious and feature white Italian Calacatta marble walls and floors; light fixtures with silver leaf finishings; traditional pedestal sinks with white porcelain fixtures; and finally, whirlpool tubs with frosted pan-windows that open into the guest rooms.
Hirsch Bedner Associates
Hirsch Bedner Associates has created various show flats and marketing Suites in a diversity of foreign places. Their approach to the whole design, spatial planning, detail, colour psychology and accessory selection is immaculate and inspired and a big reason why we wanted to show a little bit of his work in more detail.
The Altamount Residence in MUMBAI (India), is his latest design project and it features bold colours, rich colours as well as noble materials. One of the most iconic furnishings from this unique project is the Eden centre table designed by Boca do Lobo and is located in the living room.
These luxury residences were inspired by the multilayered urbanity as well as the culture of Mumbai. A small palette of materials is implemented throughout the space in varying finished and sizes to add richness. Architectural lighting plays an important role in enhancing and complementing the layered experience throughout the living room.
