Today’s Spaces is an ode to one interior design team, Avenue Lifestyle. It’s been a while since I went
a-lurking on their website, and Holly and Hedda have a bunch of inspiring new projects.
Here’s a bedroom they designed for Holly’s daughter Lola – see more here. I love seeing more grown-up pieces in kids’ rooms (here: the rug, bentwood-style chairs and the framed artwork, as some examples). Pieces like this age well and won’t be outgrown. And when they get to the i-hate-everything stage, their loss is your gain, because they’ll work just as well anywhere in the house.
Part of Holly’s own home reno – more images here. You can see Before and Afters (and Durings) on the Avenue Lifestyle Instagram in Highlights, under Project Delft. One of my favourite things about this space is the layering of all the soft and warm elements (linen curtains, linen sofa, paper lanterns, chocolate sisal rug, beautiful toasty floorboards), and then BLAM – the contrast of that Memphis-style (80’s) solid marble coffee table.
Finally, this kitchen! Fave details: Firstly, that deep brown cabinetry – with its organic, minimalist feel and delicious depth. I especially love the full-width linear pull handle detail. (This cabinetry is from Ask og Eng, who just make doors and doors only, in an I-want-them-all variety of styles to fit standard IKEA kitchens.) OK, moving on – those walnut bar stools up there, and more specifically, how good the dark walnut timber looks against the pale oak floorboards… who knew! What else? The ceramic wall light above the sink; a door with glass panels leading into the kitchen (makes me want to put glass panels in 75% of the doors at my place); the burnished brass kitchen rails (these ones, to be exact) which are the perfect choice of material with the darker timber; the light oak tall cabinetry in the corner – because there’s no rule saying you have to stick with either light or dark timber and not both.
