Behind the red brick facade ...

... it's all black and white. Real estate stalking on a Friday and came across this terrace house in Middle Park, Melbourne. Minimal in interiors, minimal in colour palette and minimal in personal possessions. Is this the way the owner chooses to live or has it been stripped of personal clutter for the sales photo shoot? I'm filing the bathrooms away for when I renovate my own. Not so much for the finishes but how to deal with a period window slap bang in the middle of a wet room wall. Link here while it lasts.

Rock star Miami kitchen

Ruben D Gutierrez of Errez Design sent us photos of one of yet another of his latest projects. (See previous projects herehere and here). Here are some details: I wanted to share some images of a kitchen we just renovated in Miami, FL. This kitchen was designed for a fun creative guy who loves rock and roll and gourmet food. We wanted to make the kitchen feel like it belonged in a 1930's house but still pop with bold colors and edgy patterns. We used a yellow and grey geometric wallpaper from Jonathan Adler on the ceiling. The yellow tones are also found on the hardwood floors. Classic charcoal grey cabinetry was paired with white marble and white ceramic tile for contrast. Vintage library lamps illuminate the open aluminum shelving. What a fun, bold kitchen! Love it all - the yellow accents, door hardware, wallpaper on the ceiling(!!!), subway tiles....

junger & beer architektur

Someone left a comment on the blog yesterday linking to Austrian architecture firm junger & beer so of course I went snooping through their portfolio and came across a couple homes I thought I'd feature today. The first has a bit of a Scandinavian vibe, the second is a bit bolder and funkier. I'm a fan of both (except for the crazy nightclub-ish lighting in the bathroom).

R. Brad Knipstein part 2

From the neutral and muted of the last post to the rich and jewel like or crisp and modern here. More images from photographer R. Brad Knipstein. Lush and sumptuous. Clean and cool. It's almost like drowning in colour at times, at others like a drink of refreshing water . A beautiful portfolio.

R. Brad Knipstein part 1

White wash beauty. The home of stylist Rosy Strazzeri-Fridman captured through the lens of photographer R. Brad Knipstein. Ivory with whites, washed out with natural, old and new, always precious, always loved and brought to life by Rosy and beautifully conveyed by Brad. Portraits of treasures and landscapes of the well loved.
