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. 

In the living room, a tapestry designed by Karim Noureldin hangs above a vintage 1950s sofa upholstered in red velvet. 
Carlo Ratti wooden chairs; vintage Franco Albini lamp on the side table. In the sitting area at back, the custom armchairs and ottoman wear a vintage print reissued by Prada, and the stools are covered in a La DoubleJ print.

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.

The kitchen features recycled 1990s Poliform cabinetry. Vintage Thonet dining chairs in a La DoubleJ print; custom Carrara marble-topped table.
In the kitchen, La DoubleJ plates hang above a vintage Thonet chair upholstered with La DoubleJ fabric; vintage Danish cabinet.
Luxury Objects

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”.

In the living room, a vintage needlepoint picture found on Etsy hangs above an Arflex sofa in peacock-blue velvet. The glass tables were a flea-market find. Vintage ottoman in a David Hicks fabric; 1970s leather chairs; early 1900s Chinese rug.

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.

Baker Stokes paneled the den and painted it with a Benjamin Moore black-blue; a Lee Jofa velvet on the sofa, a Peter Dunham textiles print at the window, and a rug upholsters the ottoman; Mary Nelson Sinclair work over mantel.

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.

The bar is located between the entrance hall and the bedroom staircase.
