16/05/2022

Black-and-white interior design has the power to give your home a lasting impression. Designers regularly incorporate this two-tone color theme in their designs to wake up interiors.

Why 1970s Interior Design Is Trending Again

01/04/2022

In an age of all-white eateries and greige living rooms, this may sound like an aesthetic crime against humanity. Avocado green?

The 23 Most Iconic Furniture Designs In History

Step Inside Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tranquil Montecito Home

First, a caveat. Anyone hoping to find an array of caricatured, Goop-arific novelty features in the Montecito home that Gwyneth Paltrow shares with her husband, writer-producer Brad Falchuk, is sure to be disappointed.
