My favourite kind of farmhouse

My favourite kind of farmhouse is one with a modern twist. This farmhouse in Washington is just that, with a colour palette mostly of black and white, this home is comfortable and casual, with modern and rustic melding together in blissful harmony. My love for a traditional farmhouse table paired with Starck's Louis Ghost chair (or Panton S chairs) has never wavered. Kudos to H2 Design & Build for killin' this project. (Photos: Dorothée Brand)

Non-designery

The owners of this Cremorne, Sydney house wanted their interiors to be lived in, warm, inviting and "non-designery". Their Queen Anne style home was redesigned and extended by Luigi Rosselli architects but they turned to interior designers Decus to weave the magic that saw traditional meet modern, Danish mid century sit with family friendly custom build and everywhere glorious art. Light, bright, modern with a nod and always stylish but never precious. Beautiful, unique, fun.

Douglas Mackie 

London based interior designer Douglas Mackie does not follow rules. In fact, it seems he likes to break them. His mostly traditional spaces are filled with antiques yet there are modern surprises in furnishings and artwork. This melange of styles keeps the spaces from being too stuffy and classic, and his selection of beautiful rich colours and textures adds to the sophisticated look. British without the boring. :)
