New projects from Dan Davis

We blogged the work of designer Dan Davis a couple of times now (see here and here) and he emailed us recently with photos from his latest projects.

Project 1 - a fun mix of vintage (remained) and antique and classical meets glamour.

Project 2 - The next project is our most compelling before and after story of a residential family room that transformed from an unfocused nightmare to a very contemporary space using a wavy wall composite to make a statement fireplace.

Laura Alvarez

Minimalist 2 storey apartment space within a heritage building in Amsterdam. Clean lines, sharp angles, limited colour palette and smooth surfaces. Warmed by wood elements. A steel staircase angles between the levels separating the dining and living spaces in the open plan first floor. But the hero of the space is fully equipped (albeit minimalist lined) kitchen centre stage. Design by Laura Alvarez Architecture.

Stalking the small and cute 

Oh dear! That makes me sound quite inappropriate. That's not what I meant. What I do mean though is that I love this little worker's cottage in inner city Melbourne I found while real estate stalking. Bright and fun and quirky and cute. White walls bounce the colour pops around, the little girl's room is so hubba bubba bubble gum pink that I can almost hear waves of giggles, the backyard is pocket handkerchief size perfect. Who needs large when 2 bedrooms in the inner city is just right. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. A few of you may recognise this house but we'll keep it our little secret don't you think ;)

Kerrie Kelly

Kerrie Kelly is an interior designer based in Northern California whose designs caught my eye while surfing the internet. Kerrie and her team of designers at Kerrie Kelly Design Lab have got what it takes - with various design styles in their portfolio they're pretty great at just about anything - from a bit traditional to more modern/contemporary. Kerrie and some of her projects may look familiar as she's been a featured designer and has consulted with several DIY and HGTV Network's "Crashers" shows. The garage conversion below (after the jump) is an amazing transformation - and it had me laughing. You NEVER see garage conversions up here in Canada. The garages of Canadians are precious and sacred spaces that save us from having to scrape ice and snow off our cars (which on bad days can take a half hour).
