Happy July 4th weekend! I thought we’d kick off the holiday on a colorful note. British Vogue contributing editor Pippa Holt was recently photographed in her new Dublin digs for both The Times and Moda Familia and the result is rather magnificent. The Australian fashion consultant lives in the bright abode with her husband, Conor Roche, a financier and Dublin native, and their two children, Bay and Thomas Balthazar. The 200-year-old Georgian townhouse once belonged to Oscar Wilde’s mother, Lady Jane Wilde, a poet and early advocate for women’s rights. My favorite room may just be the pale blue office which Conor had wallpapered in Pippa’s favorite de Gournay pattern as a surprise when she relocated from London. Chinoiserie presents—a smart man, indeed!

Looking to step up your lighting game? These silk ikat lampshades by Melodi Horne have me longing for a more colorful abode. Based out of London’s Notting Hill, the company sources their ikat textiles from Uzbekistan and crafts their lampshades and pillows in the United Kingdom. I love how the shades are gathered on the outside and boast handsome Irish linen lining and piping. I think I may need a pair for my new Ernst table lamps from Zinc Door (so Jean Michel Frank by Diego Giacometti, right?).
I love this small peek of Melissa Ventosa Martin’s Brooklyn abode published on Jean Stories. The Self magazine fashion director clearly has an eye for both fashion and interior design. I can’t help but envy her tall lilac branches, vast vinyl collection, and assortment of art. I hope someone publishes the full home someday so we can see more!
