"I live in a smaller flat than my customers, but I’m not playing with minimalism to make it bigger,” says interior designer amelie_colombet of her Paris apartment. Instead, she created bold focal points throughout the home, such as the dining room wall painted in vivid “Railings” by farrowandball. “It’s a soft, chic, and enveloping bluish-black that illuminates objects,” she says.

Forget millennial pink: Architect karim_rashid_orfficial looked to good old-fashioned magenta in his latest project, the HAP tower in New York's East Harlem.

In an Oxfordshire, England home designed by richardmeierpartners, even the pool pavilion stays true to the architect’s signature design themes: rational modernist forms and the color white. Meier drew a long horizontal line between the two-story main house and a compact cubic guesthouse by extending walls alongside a pool and tennis court. Landscape designer tomstuartsmith masterminded the pool design and surrounding beds of tall Ferner Osten grass. Photo by simonuptonphotos

karllagerfeld designed two generous Grands Appartements and another deluxe room that he dedicated to his cat, Choupette, in the newly revamped Hotel Crillon in Paris. “I knew the hotel would need an intense link to the 18th century but also a display of French art de vivre and innovation,” said alineasmardammam, who lead the renovation. “He was the only one who could materialize that bridge.” In one of the impressive suites Lagerfeld designed, the tub is carved from a single block of rare Arabescato Fantastico marble, and takes its shape from fountains at the Vatican.

With the celebration of Italian architect Ettore Sottsass’s centennial, the “Ettore Sottsass: Design Radical” exhibit opens today at the metbruer. The show aims to deepen the architect’s legacy by surveying his prolific practice and illuminating his important early works, his inspirations, and the type of revolutionary thinking that predated the Memphis movement. “Even people familiar with design tend to equate Sottsass with Memphis, which they’ve written off as not their taste, or simply bad taste,” says chrisalexlarsen, the curator organizing the show. “In truth, his work was constantly developing. He was always looking to the next thing.” Learn more through the #linkinbio Photo by Giuseppe Pino/Contrasto

henryhallnyc, the new 225-unit apartment building on the border of Hudson Yards in Manhattan, is more like a boutique hotel than a residence, and the kenfulk-designed interiors are far more posh and playful than a standard beige rental. Public amenities like a double-height lobby whose design is "a dose of midcentury meets the '70s," per Fulk; a bar run by the restaurateurs behind charliebirdnyc and pasqualejones; a drawing room; and a wine lounge encourage visitors and residents to mingle in common spaces.

The unusual shape sent shock waves through Paris when Royère displayed it in Art et Industrie’s exhibition “La Résidence Française.” But because only 150 pieces were ever made, the sofa and chairs are in high demand with a skyrocketing price tag and celebrity fans from theellenshow to Kanye West.

Emerging as an upscale travel destination, Sri Lanka has many of the usual drawing cards you’d expect—beaches, culture, cuisine—and as a bonus, you can add unique architecture to the list. Local architect Palinda Kannangara has worked on several hospitality projects, but his tour de force is his studio/dwelling just outside Colombo which features an outer brick wall and an interior concrete wall, with a pond in between. The sun and air filter through the breathing wall. See more examples of why Sri Lanka is getting the design world’s attention through the #linkinbio Photo by sebastianposingis
