Artistic residence

New York-based designer Sara Story has created a modern home environment to display the art of the owners of this house in Aspen, Colorado, USA. What’s more, her dining room design includes a very special piece.

Drawing inspiration from her extensive travels, and an active interest in contemporary art and fashion, Sara wields a keen eye to exact her aesthetic vision.

Story designed a plan where every room of the house would create an element of surprise, provoking a conversation between each piece of art. She has achieved this by juxtaposing various pieces with designer furniture, many of which could be considered works of art themselves.

While the interior is based on a neutral colour palette, Sara has introduced particular elements to add some fun and colour while also bringing the owners’ personality into every room. The modern interior design project is the perfect setting to appreciate the spectacular mountain views in Aspen.

Dining room design

The compulsive art collectors wanted a stand-out piece of furnishing for the dining room design. Sara chose the Diamond Sideboard to make a stylish impact and add an extra wow-factor to an already stunning interior.

Like a precious jewel, the Diamond Sideboard in emerald green, is a piece of luxury furniture with an exclusive design. It features three sculptured doors with a gold leaf interior with shelving and two drawers.

The exterior of this finely crafted piece is presented in silver leaf finished with a luxurious shade of translucent emerald green with luscious high gloss varnish.

The Weekend House in Portugal – Vineyard Villa

Situated in the District of Évora, Montemor-o-Novo, this beautiful villa is a perfect weekend house for relaxing…

Designed to be a family retreat, this magnificent villa is the work of two brilliant architects and interior designers, Ana Proença and Célia Mestre from Atelier Spacemakers.

The space exudes comfort, originality and authenticity, along with contemporary feel broken down with several vintage pieces that are integrated for added charm and warmth.

The project was meticulously designed from scratch using a choice of bespoke finishing materials and furniture. The weekend house was developed on a single ground floor and it is characterised by modern architecture and clean lines, featuring large spaces and light fixtures, facing the exterior through large glass floors and patios.

The living room is linked directly to the dining area, where the chairs, dining table and the animal print rug are the main features. The COLTRANE Pendant Lamp, by one of our luxury lighting brands (DelightFULL) with minimalist lines and black and gold finish, emerges as an element that, besides being functional, is a decorative and sculptural object, that stands out above all because of its style and simplicity.

The game and cinema rooms open to a contemporary living room where the furnishings are simple, but where the DUKE Suspension Lamp features as adramatic, yet subtle and trendy lighting piece that illuminates and enchants.

In the suite, white, beige and woody tones dominate the chromatic palette. In the reading corner, the neoclassical chest, which is one of the owner’s family pieces, is a stand out piece, and it perfectly matches with the armchair and footrest designed by Charles Eames. The SINATRA Floor Lamp enhances the elegance and simplicity that was intended for this space.
