Starting off the year with a new fresh mind…
Here at Decus we are always on the hunt for new inspiration to satisfy our creative hearts. This month we are taking inspiration from handmade elements, looking at the raw textures and honest tones of what nature has to offer.
The Museum Bailo was once a monastery that has had significant refurbishments by Austrian architect Heinz Tesar and local firm Studio Mas. The curved archways and organic wall finishes are all so beautifully elegant yet speak a strong architectural language.
This gorgeous door way is nestled in a neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, Brazil use to be home to a great Brazilian artist, Victor Brecheret. This timber screen softening the light that pours through the gaps.
Axel Vervoordt draws inspiration from magical gardens of his Belgian castle for the interiors of this gorgeous home, his incomparable eye and keen sense of beautiful detail is showing in full form.
We are wrapped up in love with this gorgeous stair case detail by creative genius; Vincent van Duysen.
Timber doors & paneling, one very inviting chair and a view of rolling hills…Vincent Van Duysen you have done it again! The B-S Residence, Zwevegem, Belgium 2007-2011.
Tradition ceiling details, woven cane chairs and a bold artwork make us swoon. Bridgehampton house By Carole Gan.
