The Barn

Dating from the 1820s this historic stone barn in Tasmania has been lovingly restored by its architect owners. The award winning conversion keeps as much of the existing building fabric as possible. «The original sandstone walls are exposed both internally and externally. The timber shingled roof and existing beams contrast with the new kitchen and bathroom insertion. The Barn is light and open, yet simultaneously cosy.« Located in Hobart’s CBD it’s the perfect base for exploring the historic Australian city. It’s definitely on my bucket list.

The simple life

This Shaker style house on the water is a new build with an old soul. Its timeless beauty lies in its simple lines and lack of extraneous decoration. I’m dreaming of wasting time sitting on the porch watching the river flow by or perhaps I’ll be standing at one of those lovely sash windows staring off into the distance. Who cares! I’m just lost in the romance of this farmhouse by Washington DC based Jones Boer Architects.

Friday afternoon here …

Shoes off, drink in hand, work-a-day worries being washed away by the view. If I’m lucky there is a heavy swell crashing on rocks carried on the breeze ruffling my hair. Clovelly House by Sydney-based Fox Johnston.

The Collector

Ah Maximalism! Never having to say no to surrounding yourself with what you love. Art, pottery, books and the collections, from treasures to not so mundane mementoes like the remnants of a modern day Grand Tour. It should be chaos but instead this 900 sq ft apartment in Gramercy Park, NY is a celebration of its owner. Design largesse by Alexandra Loew.

Bold use of colour in Paris

When Paris-based creative studio POOL were called upon by Lapeyre to design a domestic set in which to exhibit their collections, the apartment the duo created was no shrinking violet. Graphic use of colour not only defined spaces but provided a dramatic stage for their client’s range of bathroom and kitchen products. Love the «retro freshness» of the palette.
