Stable Acre

If you've seen the Inside Out 2011 Annual Renovating & Decorating Guide (and you must see the Inside Out 2011 Annual Renovating & Decorating Guide) you'll recognise the converted stables home of gallerist Stuart Shave. I found it again at inspace Locations and the architect David Kohn's site. Open-plan orientated around a simple modernist fireplace, light spills in through walls of glass. It's warm and simple, mid-century and modern. Rough brick is smoothed with white paint, rustic and sparse yet sophisticated and softened. And for an art dealer strangely devoid of art. Moroccan pom-pom blanket anyone?

What I always say: "Someone needs to have W I N D O W S!" Wonderful. All. The windows, too.

Beautiful space. That's so interesting that there is no art. Maybe he doesn't want to bring his work home with him?? xx

i guess the art would distract from the beautiful windows. i love it when someone is not afraid to leave open spaces in their home. not every wall or floor space needs to be filled in. it allows the mind to rest a little.

Love the house, loathe all those little pot plants on the floor in the lounge room ....pet peeve.

I know there are a lot of windows, but, even so, there's a striking lack of overhead lighting here.

I absolutely love that living room!

I love that yellow and black blanket hanging over the back of the sofa. Anyone know where I can find one of those?!

beautiful form, space, lighting.... incredible design.

Love the house, hate the furniture and especially the scraggly potted plants. Nothing in the decor has any presence. The house would be much prettier without any of the pointless furniture.

All the walls are brick , wood or windows. Where exactly would you have him hang the art? :-)

I agree with one of the comments above, its very clean and nice but something missing... art ?

27 Jun 2011 | Unregistered Commentergala

I don't see any " little pot plants" but, it makes sense they'd be in the lounge if there were any.

Bev65, there is a thing called a masonry drill, you can drill a hole into anything :-)
Love the bedroom, the rest I could leave. Agree totally on the plants.

Speech. Less.
Still catching my breath.

Why would you want to cover such a beautiful brick texture with anything? The walls are art onto themselves.

It's not taking my breath away.. but it's interesting, fascinating

28 Jun 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlgt14

Seriously, if someone could source that bedspread with the pom poms I would be extremely grateful! I have been looking for something like that for so long. Ideas?

Hi Chris,

Like Heidi above asked, where can we purchase the pom pom bedspread. I LOVE, LOVE, love your style. Thank you for sharing your finds.

Hope your having a great Summer.
