Crushing

It’s just a hallway I hear you say. It’s just a staircase. Yet I’m crushing heavily on these normally neglected areas. In the hands of Moscow-based Malyeva Interiors the monochromatic spaces are crisp, refined, divine. Such timeless beauty.

Cape Cod in Missouri

It looks like it could be beachside Nantucket but instead it’s lakeside in St. Louis, Missouri. A base of crisp, bright white is enhanced with pops of colour, vintage finds and handcrafted touches with visual interest added through texture and patina. This serene family vacation home could have looked staged and cheesy in the wrong hands. Instead the Amy Studebaker Design project has a casual elegance, a coastal charm.

Estudio María Santos

Clean lined, simple architecture with emphasis on natural materials such as wood, stone, metal, linen and cotton. The pursuit of timeless, beautiful spaces without losing functionality. That’s the manifesto of Madrid-based Estudio María Santos and this light and bright, modern apartment in the Ventas area is a perfect example.

Sea Cliff

Last week I shared the work of San Francisco based interior designer Jeff Schlarb. You didn’t I was going to stop with just one house? Of course not. He calls it Rad Elegance. I call it mid century modern meets restrained glam. Fabulous!

Working on a Saturday

You know what I say week after week. If you have to drag yourself into work on the weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Hey I could equally have called this post «Pampering yourself on a Saturday» because this is one commercial space that staff and customers will equally enjoy. Mani? Pedi? Or both? L’ecologique Nail Bar by Spanish interior design firm Quintana Partners.

Stalking in church

Hallelujah I’ve found another church to stalk! Long time readers will know that Kim and I love a good church conversion. There is something about the challenge of doing justice to what is the often imposing, original architecture and accommodating the needs of modern living. On the outside today’s offering is a sombre red brick edifice from the 1890s. Inside fresh and contemporary open-plan living merges with heavy old church doors and arches. Link here while it lasts.

Palo Alto punch

You can describe San Francisco designer Jeff Schlarb‘s work with two words … rad elegance. Classic yet contemporary with an artistic eye and a design bravery. Cool, collected and innovative, this Palo Alto home pulls no punches. Dinosaur bones in the living room and moss like carpet mounds in the bedroom, a killer art collection and a carefully curated collection of furniture. Rad elegance indeed.

Stalking a family home in Melbourne

We’re stalking a family house in the Melbourne suburb of Northcote, a house of two halves, old and new. You’d never know from its weatherboard cottage facade that behind is a light-filled, contemporary open plan home perfect, as you can see from the photos, for a young family. Inside and out meld seamlessly through sliding glass doors, extending the living space out into the courtyard garden. Stylish and kid friendly. Link here while it lasts.
