This completely stunning beach bungalow has received a complete modern makeover by New York-based Anna Burke Interiors, located in Palm Beach, Florida. The two bedroom 1930s cottage was in need of a major overhaul, after being purchased by a young Manhattan businessman who was looking for a charming vacation retreat on the beach. The designer took 60 days to complete the project, which encompassed a gut renovation of the kitchen and bathrooms, modernized all amenities and re-configured the floor plan by tearing down a wall that opened the space up and brought the sunshine in. The cottage showcases ten foot high ceilings through the majority of the rooms which allows the home to feel more spacious. The home has some elegance to it, yet it is still streamlined enough to be manageable. Window treatments of woven-wood shades helped to give privacy yet still allow natural light when it was needed. In the living room, a stunning art form chandelier graces the ceiling, sculpted from pieces of sandblasted grape wood. The designer used a seaside-inspired color palette of blues and whites, with a dusting of driftwood and rattan. Keeping the continuity of the design aesthetic, the furnishings were selected with a singular style and color palette. Since this is a vacation retreat, the designer took the liberty of adding some resort-style appeal in the bedrooms.

Mohawk Street Residence is a four story family house that underwent a contemporary renovation by Studio Gild, located in the area of Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois. Comprised of 6,800 square feet, the interiors were completely re-designed, with a full gut renovation of the kitchen, bathrooms, all the fireplaces and the stairs. Taking five months to complete, the home had a time-pressing deadline due to the family of three re-locating from London to Chicago. The designers worked with Bigane Construction to demo the project and masterfully re-work the interior structure. Since the homeowners had moved from another country, they did not have many personal belongings to add to the design of the home, so several new purchases needed to be selected. The interior vibe was to create a crisp, clean aesthetic but also be comfortable with lots of textural layering. Warm tone of gray were infused throughout the interior. Everything needed to have its place to be clutter free and relaxing. Splashes of color can be found throughout, with colorful area rugs, textured wallpaper on the bathroom walls and expansive framed prints in all of the main living spaces.
A favorite spot in the home a solarium, fill with natural light. To keep the space bright and airy, the same color palette used in the rest of the home was carried over into the space. Indoor plants were added to purify the air and to create a calming environment. Some other standout features to this space includes radiant heated flooring, and an outdoor shower on one of the two terraces. The outdoor terraces capture the beautiful Chicago skyline and give the homeowners additional space for entertaining and enjoy some fresh air.

A wall was torn down that used to separate the kitchen from the dining room in order to create a more open space and accommodate the family to spend time together and for entertaining.
The wife’s home office features a nude print by photographer Billy Kidd, one of her favorite pieces in the home. The bold print mixes well with the graphic area rug, vintage glass desk and the bold hue of the pink chair.
The basement is a favorite spot for the family to hangout on the weekends. There is a mix of designer pieces with less expensive pieces since so many furnishings needed to be purchased at one time.

This beautifully designed modern apartment interior is the home of a Chicago based designer, Gabriel Fontes who works for interiors firm Homepolish, based out of New York. The designer decorated his home in a monochromatic color palette which really helped to unify the space, while at the same time infusing natural textures in the scheme to help soften the overall aesthetic. The owner comprised his design style with his husband and decided to meet down the middle. The home showcases a balanced mix of sleek minimalism and a comfortable traditional scheme. The apartment has a real homey feel, open and inviting with lots of texture and a hint of Scandi on the dining chairs. “Our main goal for our place was to merge the two backgrounds in some way, says Gabriel, “I think in order for a home to feel welcoming and sophisticated, the people living there need to be comfortable in it and proud of what the home they’ve created.”
