Squillace Nicholas Architects

Vince Squillace, Patrick Nicholas and the rest of the team at Squillace Nicholas Architects are some talented folks. This Australian firm "believes the experience of architecture is heightened through a building's engagement with landscape and climate, the interplay of light, and the sensuality of materials." Amazing attention to detail while keeping clean, simple looks. Lovely!

Amy Samelson

  

Amy Samelson has an eye for calm, refined modern spaces. Her designs use rich textures and beautifully subtle colours. It's a modern, clean lined look but at the same time almost sumptuous with the layering of textures, softened with the draping of fabric. It's an easy elegance but a look that is just right for the everyday and perfect for small space living.

My sister recently sent me the link to a Hungarian magazine called Otthon. I was excited to find a slew of cool photos on their website. Here are some that really caught my eye. (The first one = SO ADORABLE!).

Behind the scenes on a Real Living shoot

Ever imagine what goes on behind the scenes of a magazine shoot? Imagine seeing it through the stylist's eyes. Jason Grant is the Style Director for Australia's most popular interiors magazine Real Living and he kindly emailed us a link to his behind the scenes snaps for the latest cover shoot. I've included just a few but you can see so much more over on Jason's blog.  (While I'm sharing blog love don't miss Editor Deborah Bibby's blog for even more insight into a fabulous magazine.) Back to the home. It belongs to Gloria and Stuart Barton and the shots for the magazine are by the über talented Maree Homer (see our post on her here). The interior designer is Tim Leveson and I couldn't resist including more of his portfolio after the jump. It's light, bright and stylishly casual. Grab yourself a copy of the latest Real Living. Absolutely my favourite mag!

Marcus O’Reilly Architects

Located on a highly desirable street two blocks from the beach in the Melbourne suburb of St. Kilda is this zincalume clad extension grafted to an Edwardian home in a dramatic yet
sensitive fashion.  Old is tied to new, modern meets traditional. Bi-fold doors ensure a seamless flow from indoors to outdoors. It's about bright sunlit spaces shaded by seasonal vines, strategically planted deciduous trees and overhangs. Think high end finishes with durability as the key and all on a tight budget.  Even the clothesline was given the designer twist, with a rock weight/peg holder adding a bit of flair to a typically ordinary domestic object. Another stunning project by Marcus O'Reilly Architects. (Don't forget to click to read more after the jump.)
