Black and white

Back in May I featured the home of interior designer from Poland Lucyna Kolodziejska. She emailed with some photos of a design project of hers that I adore. Some details: this flat I have designed for my client Edyta i Rafal. They have also 1 year old kid – Borys. I designed this about 1,5 year ago. Two bathrooms – one with shower, 3 bedrooms and living room with kitchen. All in black and white. Mirror in master bedroom is my project. The posters is from polish designers. Big MK it is decorating elements, doesn't mean anything. In bathroom with shower we have photo from Polish seaside. Old 100 year old table in dining with Masters by Kartell – i like these chairs. I am a HUGE fan of black and white decor so this home is really doing it for me. In a big way. With SWEET photos. (photos, design)

The home of photographer Caroline Otteni

Sitting in a meadow of flowers, surrounded by fruit trees, not far from the Baltic Sea in Germany is Haus Otteni. This old farm workers' house has been lovingly restored by its photographer owner. It's a family home of interconnecting rooms, clay plaster walls, rustic beams and a dark cave like feel. Interesting sight lines and the play of light and shadow reveal the photographer's eye. A special place that is made even more lovely by its everyday practicality. Precious but not precocious. Even better it is available for holiday rent. Sunbathing in the meadows, relaxing in the shade of a fruit tree, soft breezes blowing in from the coast. Lazy, blowsy summer days with family or friends.

Eclectic in Notting Hill

I recently got my hands on another property from London estate agents Domus Nova, this one is eclectic and modern and gorgeous. It's a 5 bedroom, 5 story home in Notting Hill that was refurbished by De Matos Ryan Architects and the interior was designed by Carden Cunietti. The clients are North American; Carden Cunietti were asked to help design their large family house using elements of mid-century furniture and modern elements. Take a look at the lower ground floor which best typifies this by the concrete floors and selection of pieces using designs by Charlotte Perriand. In terms of the architecture, De Matos Ryan added a double height void which links the upper and lower ground living spaces. The house opens up to the garden, where a cast concrete counter blurs the boundary between the indoor and outdoor spaces. I love the funky vibe of this home - very cool furnishings and I am always a fan of lots of graphic artwork and piles of books.

Gray Organschi

The firm of Gray Organschi Architecture is based in New Haven, Connecticut has a portfolio that is total eye candy and such a wide variety of randomness. They've designed a footbridge, a storage barn, a firehouse converted into a music studio, a converted church, garden pavillions (VERY cool; see last three photos of this post) and many more. Here are some of my favourite of their residential work.
