Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz is the king of white spaces. White is his trademark and it's incredible how he can mix so many shades of white, off-white, cream, beige, ivory, eggshell....and make it WORK. The result is sophisticated and absolute drama. Below is a home in Sagaponack, New York that he designed, go figure, all in white. (See past posts of his work here and here).
It's easy to see why German photographer Sabrina Rothe has shot for magazines such as Elle Decoration GB. Her aesthetic is minimal and crisp. Light is bright and white but not harsh. Simple rooms shimmer and floors and windows almost glow. Stylish European interiors never looked so good. A pared back stylish vibe. Once again a photographer has me craving timber ... floors, furniture, windows. A good photographer should always make you crave. (For a look at Sabrina's darker side don't miss her stills portfolio on her website.)
Suppose Design Office is a Japanese architecture firm headed by 35 year old Makoto Tanijiri and employs what looks to be a bunch of very creative young people (from what I can tell on their profile page). That creativity oozes from every corner of every space they have designed. I am adoring the exposed concrete, the use of timber in somewhat odd places, cool staircases, wacky exteriors. Incredible. They definitively think outside the box.
Time to stalk Sydney with me. We are in my favourite hunting ground Paddington. Oh to be able to afford a home here! How about these grey one? Presenting a stylish but private face to the outside world, it's what's going on out the back that has all the drama. I can't get enough of the black sunroom and the black deck is bliss. Join me for a cool drink and perhaps a splash in the pool? Life can be tough when out stalking! Link here while it lasts and of course there is more after the jump.
I think I've died and gone to heaven. We have Tiina to thank for the link to the apartment we are stalking today. Classic meets modern in Helsinki, Finland. Warm buttery creams, white floors, sparkly chandeliers, stainless steel, timber and Ghost chairs. I'd gladly be Cinderella and sleep beside the stove in the kitchen. Then again there is always that comfy iron bed. The link is here while it lasts and don't forget to click to see more after the jump. Stay tuned I have another stalking in Sydney in a few hours.
