With the arrival of spring, colors, flowers, and magnificent gardens also arrive. From Milan to Los Angeles, the houses are filled with style and personality – and lots of colors. Get inspired by these colorful homes, which we present to you here, full of creativity, combinations, bright inks, and patterned prints.
Emmy Raver-Lampman e Daveed Diggs’s LA Pad
The colorful – and happy – home of actors Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs in Los Angeles reflects their personalities. The couple is very attracted to colors and patterns and, with the help of designer Mandy Cheng, color has reigned in the decor. See the so-called Monkey Room: its once completely white walls took on new life with the application of a surprisingly bold wallpaper from Cole & Son decorated with lush forest scenes full of monkeys, birds, lizards, and varied flora.
The modern green kitchen features attractive cabinets (they are painted in Dunn Edwards’ Greener Pastures) and a Clé Tile backsplash. Elsewhere, the teal dining chairs at One Kings Lane complete the palette influenced by nature.
J.J. Martin’s Milan Apartment
Designer JJ Martin tells the story of how she brought a new home to Milan to life during the pandemic, with the help of a group of creative friends. She looked for economical solutions that would have a great impact, and painting each wall in a colorful tone was one of those strategies. Much of it is done in a dusty pink color that was mixed by hand by Martin’s local painter. With that colorful backdrop, Martin and her friends decided to decorate with a variety of colorful and patterned furniture and accessories. The house danced to life in a way she could never have imagined.
Fabrics from her own La DoubleJ line cover vintage Thonet dining chairs in the kitchen (which is defined by recycled Poliform cabinets from the 1990s in an impressive burgundy shade), and many other knickknacks in her home are also her own designs. The result? A vibrant universe that exudes Martin’s maximalist ethos.
An entire new world began to bloom in Martin’s home. And what she realized how she saw the whole thing rise like a radiant rose garden is that nothing happens without community, without creative collaboration, and without pure joy and resolute faith. In her own words, “It just requires the spark within us to light up the night like dynamite”.
Asia Baker Stokes’s Locust Valley Paradise
At decorator Asia Baker Stokes‘ family home in a 1930s stable in Locust Valley, New York, the predominant palette is country-appropriate neutrals, with soft reds and blues spread over almost every room.
But a handful of auxiliary spaces have a much more dramatic tone. Take the case, where Farrow & Ball’s Black Blue and jewel-toned upholstery (from Lee Jofa velvet on the sofa to the vintage rug covering a custom ottoman) create a moody effect.
Another example is the bathroom, where Farrow & Ball‘s Tented Stripe wallpaper joins the brand’s Pitch Black painting, a vintage mirror with black frame, and Thomas O’Brien sconces for Visual Comfort to create an attractive vignette. Also inviting is the bar, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Burnt Peanut Red and covered with sharp blue stone countertops.
