Maybe it’s our nostalgia for Saturday mornings spent in front of the TV that made us want to turn cartwheels for this London apartment featured in the September 2011 issue of World of Interiors. Or maybe it’s the glossy turquoise floor, and the cartoon-printed sofa and table. Or the bubbly accents like the balloonlike red smiley face on the Pepto Bismol–colored pedestal, and the life-size absurdist sculpture with pink legs and Playmobil head.
Whatever it is, we heart artist Misha Milovanovich’s sense of humor and eye for borderline-clashing patterns and color with a capital C. The walls of the apartment may be white, but Milovanovich has stuffed the rooms with comic-strip brights like a lime green tufted chair, schoolbus-yellow floor-to-ceiling drapes, rainbow-hued acrylic-bead curtains, striped table lamps with tomato-red drum shades, and, of course, lots of her own color-crazy art. Vibrant, original, and personally resonant—the best kind of design.
