Inside Out House

A single piece of art from the homeowner's collection provided the inspiration for this stylish Sydney renovation and extension by Amber Road Design. A parents' retreat, facade and landscaping were created always with consideration of the interaction of internal and external spaces.

"Blurring boundaries between the inside and out was essential. By creating a louvered facade, it provided the end user a myriad of experiences throughout a single day."

Pink Room by Circle Line

I absolutely love everything about this 60 m2 bar in Kiev, Ukraine called Pink Room designed by Circle Line Interiors. From the colour scheme and the glamorous vibe to how it operates. Bar is situated in a historic part of building of old cinema “Kiev” in the centre of the city. Owners of the place wanted to create something that differs from the rest of speakeasy bars which already exist in the city. It was supposed to become the secret place for all cool underground music lovers, for those who appreciate art of cocktail culture, of silent cinema performances and for those who appreciate french style of the beginning of 20th century. Pink room is placed at an old stairway of the cinema, which was closed for the last 10 years. The entrance is behind the replica of Jules Chéret's poster "Exposition universelle de 1889 : Le pays des fées". Instead of Paris our designers painted Kiev's historic Sofia square. To enter speakeasy one has to know secret code on a door, which can be obtained only from the owner of Pink Room. The overall size of the place is 60 square meters.  

Above the exit neon sign “Shhh…” reminds guests of Pink Room's secrets that they should keep to themselves after leaving it.

Stalking leftovers

Hello my name is Jo and I'm a real estate addict. I stalk listings hoping to find the perfect property I can't afford anyway. Oh well a girl can dream. There is one problem though. I'm fussy. Not quite right, love the bones but ditch the furniture, bad photos, I need more photos please! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week I seem to be stuck in inner-city Sydney's terraces and apartments. Not that that is at all onerous. Click on the photos to go to the listings while they last. All via realestate.com.au.

Maven loves pale pink

I could not help but notice Catherine and Patricia of Maven seem to have a crush on pale pink so I thought I would do a little round-up of their spaces featuring this colour. A lovely reminder why I love my dining room painted in Farrow & Ball's Calamine so much. :)

Bladon by Maven 

Dark walls, accents in orange, Panton S chairs, Vladimir Tretchikoff art (I have the 'Chinese Girl' print above over my living room fireplace) .....what's not to love about this project by Belfast, Northern Ireland-based Maven? It is bold and whimsical, and their online shop is pretty fabulous too - they carry Hay, Ferm Living, Marimekko, Muuto, Normann Copenhagen etc.
