Toorak texture

Your very first residential design job can be daunting. Can I? Will they? Does it? Why? What? How much? And this is the fabulous result of Melbourne-based Northbourne Architecture + Design.

"For the interior design, Northbourne drew inspiration from the client’s love of patterning, texture & contrast, evident in the client’s artwork collection. These ideas were interwoven into the whole design including joinery design, colour selections and material choices."

A rustic, industrial library by Jamie Banfield

Beautiful slabs of walnut (I'm guessing here), reclaimed wood shelves, raw steel supports, some stunning artwork, a vintage typewriter (this one is incredible, it too is like art) together in a small space make for an ideal cozy library/workspace with a masculine, rustic, industrial feel to it. By Vancouver interior designer Jamie Banfield

A colourful home by Marta de la Rica

I love this home by Madrid-based interior designer Marta de la Rica. It's whimsical and colourful without going overboard, with lots of patterns (ikat!) in small doses without being too busy. Marta has a knack for designing spaces JUST RIGHT. And how freaking adorable is that pink/purple tufted sofa?!?!

Glamorous Galah

"A forceful feminine approach was counterbalanced through the array of exquisite furniture & soft furnishings used with a striking sense of personality." 

Hollywood Regency with a high end 80s vibe. A rich mix of pinks and burgundies played against black and grey. Brass and stone and feathers. What else could your glam heart desire? St. Ives Residence by Sydney-based interior design firm Designers in the City.

(A Galah, in case you do not know, is a beautiful grey and pink parrot native to Australia. If you look closely you can see a painting of one hanging beside the fireplace.)
