We take a glimpse into social media guru and influential fashion blogger Arielle Charnas New York city apartment. With breathtaking views onto Madison Square Park, the mother of two shows off her traditional yet modern aesthetic.
The four-bedroom apartment combines high ceilings and generously sized rooms that are open and striking. Favouring neutral colours, beige and greys are seen with energetic pops of colour scattered throughout pairing the combination of neutral and vibrancy.
The bedrooms of daughters Ruby and Esme have a foundation of neutral greys and whites with playful additions of pink leopard-print carpet and glowing pink neon sign.
The master bedroom entails bold greys, warm creams, blacks and whites. A chrome four-poster bed acts as a centre piece complementing the low-lying pendants above the bedsides.Read more
After first encountering the glamorous 1920’s home via photos in her 20’s, Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell instantly fell in love on her first real life visit to the warm Mediterranean inspired villa.
With several remodelling attempts Mitchell describes how this latest incarnation, brought about to welcome her partner Matte Babel and their daughter Atlas, finally feels like her.
Interior decorator and friend Chad Wood guided the process, starting by bleaching the old redwood floors and lightening up the palate with monochrome and warm whites plus a pop of dusky pink in Atlas’s luxurious new room. The mostly neutral palate lets Mitchel’s second hand and antique finds shine including a Moroccan lantern found in Marrakesh in lieu of a more typical chandelier in the formal sitting room.
A speakeasy inspired living room and wall to ceiling bookshelves in pewter grey with bold floral wallpaper completes the look and creates the perfect relaxed yet sophisticated home, designed for entertaining (when she ever finds the time!)

The first thing that strikes us about Nicky Hilton and husband James Rothschild’s home is the extensive use of colour. Blues and reds are confidently used throughout the Manhattan penthouse.
The sitting room sees painted red walls paired with a red fabric lounge suite and tens of art-pieces covering the walls, while the drawing room has a blue rug, blue lounge suite and blue de Gournay cherry-blossom wallpaper, again with art-pieces across most of the walls. Both spaces are examples of the ‘more is more’ maximalist approach to design.
Nicky says she gave her husband the lead when it came to the interiors; herself just adding small touches along the way. However, there was one room where Nicky took charge: her daughter’s nursery, which includes Pottery Barn furniture, a colourful felt-ball rug and sky-blue walls.
A home for their two children, Lily-Grace and Teddy Marilyn – the design needed to be practical enough for little ones. While there are many family heirlooms from James’ English family home, no room is ‘off limits’ to the kids.
Stand-out decor pieces include the Holland & Sherry wool-covered Howard sofa – a piece handed down from James’ family and upholstered by the couple, a bright turquoise oval gesso-and-kaolin painting by Elliott Puckette and an antique marble mantelpiece.

‘Serene’ is the word that comes to mind when looking inside the $6.6 million Beverly Hills home recently purchased by Serena Williams – how fitting is that?!
The internationally-famous tennis star, along with fiancé Alexis Ohanian, put their Bel Air home on the market late last year. It didn’t take long for the couple, and their baby daughter, to find their new dream home: a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom Spanish revival style mansion.
Sitting behind an exclusive gated community, the three-storey home is contemporary and bright, with Mediterranean references and was built in 2017.
Interior designer Sharon Taftian was responsible for the interiors, introducing Moroccan tiles, unlacquered brass finishes, brushed-oak hardwood floors, and a Moroccan-esque rug in the main bathroom.
The kitchen features warm-toned cabinetry, which is a trend we’re seeing in interiors this year, while throughout we can see the focus on soft lines and plush furnishings – another popular trend in interior design.
Outside, the home features a layered garden and an open air pool complete with a swim-up bar that we have no doubt the tennis pro will enjoy after her gruelling training sessions, along with the yoga and massage room!
