Beautiful interiors with a marriage of contemporary and traditional. Serene and elegant but always with a sure sense of the practical. A soft, muted palette adds is layered with texture while careful attention to detail makes all the difference. But the decorating element I love the most in these rooms? (And one often neglected.) The wonderful light. Like another layer to the design. Stylish interiors by Tanya Capello.
I spotted this home in Derek Swalwell's portfolio and was immediately smitten. I had to show my husband, as this style of home would be perfect when we get around to planning our new house. I love the angles of the top level, the front balcony surrounded in wood, and the exterior finishes are exactly what I'm looking for. Add another level and I'm sold. :)
We've been crushing on Australian photographer Derek Swalwell for a long time. A really really really long time. Not only are his photographs absolutely dreamy, but he has had the opportunity to visit some of the most architecturally fabulous homes I think I've ever seen. I am envious. At least we are able to "visit" them virtually through his lens. I'll take what I can get.
My love affair with New York firm Selldorf Architects continues. A vast, lofty, wide open, light streaming in, killer industrial windows type of lovin'. Stark white expanses anchored by dark floors and warmed by wood and colour blocks. And the whole idea of descending down into a TV "pit" just makes me grin like an idiot. Great bones brought to life with great design.
