A Terrace apartment in Black & White by Pamela Makin

Hello and welcome back! 2015 has been a great year with many highlights and the opportunity to work with a lot of great brands on the blog and offline during the many events, travels and blog tours Over the last year I met many of you and I am looking forward to a new blog year filled with love, friendship and inspiration for many more beautiful stories.


Thank you so much for reading my blog and your new year wishes.... one sentence caught my eye ' Cheers to the eternal sunshine of a new, spotless year'  and that is exactly what I wish for all of you and love to start the new year on the blog with.

A Terrace apartment in Black & White by Pamela Makin
I ended 2015 with a beautiful white winter home and after seeing the picture above I couldn't wait to start the year with another great stylish home in my favourite colour scheme. Sometimes you can recognize a designers signature and especially a designer with a style really close to your own. I immediately guessed this was a project by Pamela Makin of Les Interieurs. If you like this style have a look at this post about Les Interieurs I posted three years ago.


This renovated 1870s apartment in Sydney is designed by Pamela and is clearly wearing her signature. The overal white apartment is furnished with different design pieces from among others Marcel Wanders, Philippe Starck, and Flos and selected tribal artwork and items from Pamela's own hand and store Les Interieurs. Greens can be find throughout the whole apartment but only one or two colour pops

On Vogue I read what Pamela had to say about her style and the use of colour: “If someone said to me,‘I love your look, but I want a more colourful house’, I would have to advise that I use colour only as a little punctuation mark,” she says, pointing to this project’s ‘Lowlife’ ottoman from MCM House, tan sofa and tribal artworks from Les Interieurs. “But they come to me for my style, which is typically layered-on white — that wonderful neutral that makes everything so clean, so easy and so peaceful.” How do you like this style?

The apartment is exceptional! I rarely like rooms without bright colours but I absolutely approve your choice. Looks so elegant and stylish! Happy New Year!

No color is needed there. These white and black tones set the right mood. It's clean yet warm. Understated yet with breathtaking artwork. Simple yet luxurious. Simply beautiful.
Thank you for sharing these pictures

I love the contrast between the white walls and black pops of furniture. There is enough texture like the fur, area rugs,fabrics and unique shapes which allow the white walls to soften the look. Very nice!
