In the house of architect Pedro Useche

Architect and furniture designer Pedro Useche has created this open plan home, his own, settled in a lush tropical garden in São Paulo, Brazil. The Venezuelan designer surrounds himself with his own furniture pieces as well as mid century classics but what I love most is the riot of art that brings life, an extrovert personality to the large white spaces that are a perfect counterfoil to the vibrant green surrounds. A home full of discoveries for the eye. I can imagine walking in and racing from spot to spot exploring all the treasures of a creative mind. The wonderful photography is by Fran Parente.

Brilliant paint ideas

My twin sister found these photos on Sköna hem on our lunch break and I had to post them because I think these are absolutely brilliant ways to achieve high impact looks with a little bit of paint. And into my inspiration folder they go!

My other dream home

I've got another property for you from Domus Nova. And this one is a dream! What is not to love about this place? The only thing I can really comment on negatively are those deflated looking sofas, which looks too much like a separated sectional (pet peeve!!). This place rocks. I love the simple kitchen, the concrete floors, the funky lighting, the artwork (I spot THE perfect vintage portrait), the yard, and OMG THAT HALLWAY 'O BOOKS!!!

In hiding

Talk about hiding your light under a bushel! If turning your back on a busy inner city street and looking inwards is your thing then how about this Surry Hills, Sydney house by Anthony Gill. Minimalist interior doesn't mean minimal style. The original house sits back from the neighboring terraces. Courtyards at either end. Sliding gate entry. It's all about polished concrete, light, clever storage. Love the massive concrete kitchen bench. It's a hard faced house in a tough part of the neighbourhood sitting in the gritty street. Hiding its beauty.

London real estate stalking #2

As promised, here is another Domus Nova property. This time it's a rental, which is probably good news as I'm not sure how many buyers would be tickled pink to discover red carpeting and a bright orange bathroom. I do love how neutral the spaces are with colour brought in through furnishings. Most people do it the other way around. I think this takes far more bravery. Check out that sofa for example. Surely more of an investment than a can of paint.
