Eclectic dreams

Now here's a different take on Swedish white. A huge loft in Stockholm with soaring ceilings, skylights to dream about, a bookcase that makes my heart sing and a roaring fireplace. Eclectic is definitely the vibe here. Contemporary married with fine antiques, throw in tribal pieces and oriental finds, Scandi design and open plan on a grand scale and I'm hooked. Wouldn't you love to snoop through the bookcase, pick up the knick knacks and turn them over, ask to crank the stereo way up. It may not be the place you'd want to make your home but don't you just want to party! Oh imagine ... night time, low light, fire burning, wine in hand and favourite music ... and a couple of dozen of your best friends. For sale here. (Thanks for the link Daniela!)

Daniel Hertzell encore

It's only Wednesday and after yesterday I was seriously ready to throw in the towel, catch a flight to some godforsaken island and never come back. My day job can be a bit stressful here and there but OMG this week has been taxing on my patience. But I made it through without going completely loco, and all I want to post today are some really pretty photos. Is that too much to ask for? I think not. So here you go - some photos from the portfolio of super talented and creative photographer Daniel Hertzell (also featured by Jo here).

Est

So excited when we received an email from super stylist Deb McLean letting us know about the launch of new Australian emag Est. Est is edgy and fresh. Global content but put together with that great Aussie style vibe we are all raving about. Sian MacPherson, Editor in Chief & Lynda Evans, Creative Director have sourced the coolest and the best. It's so obvious ... sexiest, freshest, edgiest, greatest ... Est.

Seventh Heaven

As promised yesterday a stunning church conversion by Baker Kavanagh Architects. The recently completed redevelopment of terrace residences is in Mill Hill, a landmark heritage church close to Sydney's centre in Bondi.  The church was converted into two luxury apartments, planned around internal courtyards. Two contemporary terraces were built adjacent to the church with a contrasting aesthetic. Think elegance and restraint, a juxtaposition between the heritage exterior and street scape and minimal white interior. Heavenly!

Diego Ladino

Interior designer Diego Ladino emailed us with some GORG photos of an apartment in Madrid, Spain that he designed. I LOVE the eclectic mix of styles - quirky and very cool. That would be the first 4 photos (before the jump). After the jump are photos I nabbed from his website of what appears to be a totally stunning restaurant. Talk about talent!
