When Mindy Gayer reimagined this Napa Valley farmhouse for her clients she infused it with a fresh, fun feel with more than a nod to its iconic 60s ranch style and the owners’ childhood memories of surf and vineyard. A bright, light and lovely family home from this Orange County interior designer.
A glimpse of a very contemporary addition to the side of the facade is a dead giveaway that this home in Melbourne’s Fitzroy North is not what it seems from the street. I’m stalking an Edwardian era red brick home with a industrial modern extension. Love the play of the black steel against the brick and the monumental kitchen island with its rich green tiles and old timber beams. Link here while it lasts.
LLI Design recently completed a total redesign and refurbishment of a 7 storey townhouse in Highgate, a leafy and desirable part of London. By changing the dynamics of the spaces involved they maximized the available space creating a colourful and contemporary residence. This award winning project has a harmonious feel as you move up the house, but each floor has its own character. The end result? A warm and inviting family home.
The downside of living inner city is often outdoor space is very limited. This Bondi, Sydney house has only the tiniest of backyards, more courtyard than wide open spaces. That didn’t stop design and construction design-it landscapes from creating a perfectly formed oasis complete with jewel-like plunge pool. So many ideas to inspire your small space gardening.
«Seaside Residence was a partial renovation of a grand Georgian home. Our clients have a young family with 2 boys. An active life by the coast is ideal for them, and they wanted a home that was calm, but filled with personality — something young and fresh, that still honoured the traditional architectural style of their heritage house.»
I’m in Amsterdam stalking a development site. A raw shell, gutted, rough and ready with jackhammered walls and neon surveyor’s marks … and I love it. I’ve included the computer generated renderings of the proposed apartment but is it wrong of me to love the romance of the raw and turn my back on the slick and chic of the new? (OK, OK I’d like a better mattress and perhaps a bathroom and kitchen but don’t dismiss my daydream out of hand.) You can see more here. Via DSTRCT.
When long time reader Vika Pecherskikh of Compelling View Interiors shared these photos of her home I immediately knew she was a kindred spirit. You see she has an addiction to love of beautiful chairs just like I do. In every room there is a vintage treasure. Her decorating firm in the Washington DC metro area is passionate about homes and emotions they evoke, creating spaces that have a sense of narrative and authenticity. You can see more of Vika’s ever evolving home and the treasures she finds on her instagram page.
Not fair! Throwing a tantrum! Not enough photos! I want to see more and I’m too far away to go to an actual open for inspection. My little boho heart likes what it sees … but I WANT TO SEE MORE! Calm done Jo. Breath. That’s better. I’m stalking a cute little cottage in Sydney’s Avalon Beach. Link here while it lasts.
